The Diraar's Summary

"What Celia'nor is, you ask, oh weary traveller? We are born from the fires of civil war, a people of High Elves! We follow our philosophy, "ilMaehr'sae Ilkun'ehya", meaning with knowledge and steel. And that is what we are: A High Elven state of warriors, fighters and soldiers! And one of scholars, mages and engineers, too. We have endured much, the past century. But here we are, unbroken by all perils. We do not bicker amongst ourselves in petty debates and elections, but stand united behind our Royarchs, the Princes and Princesses of Celia'nor. For we are Celia'nor, the Starland! We are glory and crown of Elvendom! Our guardforce, the Diraar, stands watch night and day."

- Unkown patriotic Diraar, 173 S.A.

Culture and Society

Celia'nor boats itself for its militant culture and many scholars. Decency is expected of all; letting oneself succumb to their simplest needs is frowned upn. As such, acts like gluttony, wrath or a public display of romantic affections is heavily frowned upon. Yet this does not mean the Celia'norians are without feeling, but they are expected to keep there posture and dignity at all times, nor are they to sully their bloodline with non-High Elves.

The Capital City of Fi’andria

An artist’s depiction of Celia’nor, circa 74 SA.

The Great City of Fi’andria, the original capital of Celia'nor on Almaris, located in the heart of Celia’nor where the redwoods angle high overhead until a clearing is unveiled to the city of stars and embers. A place of grandiose wonder which magic and mystique run freely through the air. Spiraling towers of ivory that were touched by mulberry at their apex dotted the city from its gates to the academy and nature seemed to exist hand and hand with the influence of magic that was held throughout the city. Along the coast that borders the western Almarian ocean, the dockyards were filled with sailors, fishermen, and merchants alike that bustle trade and commerce into the economy. At the epicenter of the city, it shows that it truly is a city of promise with a theater, inn, tavern, shops of every sort, and opportunities around every corner.

It however founds its end after a voidal eruption which first destroyed it's palace and then was conquered by the Mori, a vile race of spider-elves. Yet to this day, Celia'nors original capitals hold cultural significance to the people of Celia'nor, for after all, it was their first home and many elves who helped construct the city centuries ago still live.


“ilMaehr'sae Ilkun'ehya”, known in the common tongue as “with knowledge and steel”, is the idea which carved the ideals and values of the Celian people. Ideals that transcend the average mind and encourage carving their paths through history with steel and the knowledge that they have gained throughout the lifetime of an elf. This is ever present within the mindset of a Celia’norian when they go through their day to day. It is common that they will begin to tackle ideas for problems not yet faced in the realm and to ease their day to day life. From a house magery operated tavern, ear cuffs that play music, mirrors that give fashion advice, handheld crossbows that blast air to stun and help detain criminals, and so much more has blossomed from this mindset. They’ve ensured the safety of their realm through the marching of steel, showing their forces to the realm and not taking no for an answer when their people are threatened by outsiders. This has developed into the average Celia’norian always at the ready to defend their home should it become necessary.

The essence of this philosophy is that the elven blessing of longevity ought to not be looked at in the same way other elven civilizations have. While the elves of times past have taken the opportunity to revel in their long lives, choosing to drink, feast, and copulate the centuries away, a Celia’norian looks upon this decadence and laziness with utter disgust. A long life is meant to be industrious, for, unlike the other races, an elf has the privilege of orchestrating, seeing through, and then enjoying great, ambitious aspirations in their lifetime. Idleness is the basest sin of any in Celia’norian society, and a subject who is not utilizing their longevity and talents for some greater purpose is a waste to themselves and their countrymen.

Everyday Life

Beneath the redwoods that tower above surrounding the seaside glades, the people of Celia’nor take on an idyllic, yet productive way of life. Store shops line the main street of Fi’andria, selling magical enchantments, alchemic concoctions, and tasty cuisine to satisfy any hungry citizen and traveler.

While Fi’andria and Celia’nor at large is well known for Arcane studies and practices, the military remains a large part of the day to day life of the citizens. While not every citizen is enlisted within the military, every citizen will raise their blades and foci to defend their home. Once the fighting is done, many return to the barracks to keep serving or find themselves at the Slumbering Scholar, one of a few taverns citizens often relax and enjoy either the carefully crafted alcohol or one of the lively performances.

For the citizens not of the military mindset, they are often found working either in magical fields or within the palace. Court life is lively with event planners, courtiers specializing in botany, painting, and performing. With a theater putting on regular performances, many find some home within the arts. If city life is not someone’s cup of tea, the villages of Starpool and Paradine each cater to a more agricultural life, whether it be sprawling vineyards or rolling fields.

Should someone wish to find employment there are many options available. Court life is always looking for new talent. The military’s doors are open to all those who wish to serve no matter the skill level. Mages can find work either within the government as sponsored mages or in private shops selling enchantments and other tools. If any of the above, the community job board is a good spot to look for available work.

The Celian Court

The Celian Court consists of the highest echelons of high elven society: those who stand above the rest in their respective skill. The elite within the courts work together to improve upon the society within Celia’nor. Their primary objective is to upkeep social standards of the principality- certifying that each member of not only the court, but each part of society strives for excellence in their work. Knowledge, poise, and amelioration of society are at the core of the values for the court.

The governing council of the Celian Court is known as the Circle of Stars. Those among the circle of stars not only work within their own domain to advance society, but also ensure that others among the Courts uphold Celia’nor’s social values. The Circle of Stars work towards maintaining the palace, the culture, and the society of the Celian Court.

Due to the core values of the Celian Court, etiquette is a primary aspect of courtier proceedings. Use of titles and addressments are expected not only within the palace, but in daily life as well. It is essential to follow court customs, including wearing one’s finest clothing to court meetings, and donning the proper accessories to show one’s rank. Those who are nobility are permitted to wear bronze circlets, whereas family heads frequently wear signet rings with their family crests upon them. It is highly frowned upon for those of non-nobility status to wear circlets of any kind, especially within a court setting. Etiquette is an essential part of maintaining social standards within Celia’nor in its entirety.


The process of courtship typically begins from twenty-fine years and up, once one has come of an appropriate age. During courtship, the couple becomes accustomed to one another and decides if there will be an engagement, concluding with the celebration of marriage. A mal or lari may ask to initiate a courtship with one another, it is of utmost importance that a relationship is built consensually. If a member of a courting pair is of a noble standing, the permission of the head of that household much be clearly given. Furthermore, while the City of Stars accepts minor acts of public affection, such as an embrace, we expect our citizens to behave with appropriateness in mind, therefore, any public fraternization is frowned upon, especially outside of marriage. Fi'andria greatly values the nature of the matrimonial union between a pair and such acts should be kept private between husband and wife. Typical courtship practices may include giving flowers to your partner, a private stroll, or preparing a romantic dinner or picnic.


The appearance of the Celia’nor elf is a rather strict, ancient look as common of all High-Elves due to a long history of selective marriages throughout its history of being under the umbrella of past nations. Thus, the appearance of the Celia’nor elf is a rather strong identity of appearance. A typical Celia’norian elf, often appears with a lighter tone of skin, varying from a light pale, to a marblesque pearl color of skin. Hair on the other hand, is far less demanding, with varying lighter shades present, with blonde, white, and silver being the most common, and red, orange, gray and gold being other colors. Black or brown hair is often the sign of a non-full blooded Celia’nor elf. Eyes follow suit, with colors benign far more variable with blue, violet, purple, green, gold and yellow being common colors, with brown being deeply frowned upon as a valah eye color. Height, albeit varied between 5’0 to 6’6, often ranges between the extremes rather than between, with most being over 6’0, and weighing generally between 100ibs to 260ibs, often being on the lighter end. Perfect skincare is promoted as necessary to greet the day, with personal grooming made of the utmost importance. Celia’norian elves are to be clean-shaven, their hair well-trimmed, skin clear and well bathed to be seen as appropriate in the public eye, anything less than their best is seen as a poor reflection on themselves.


Amongst the city of stars and its’ upper echelons of society, how one displays themselves is often considered quite important. The elves of Celia’nor have an expectation of decorum for those that call the principality home. Modesty is something that is valued, but not in the traditional sense that one must always have every ounce of flesh covered. The exposing of a modicum of skin is considered quite acceptable. For example, shoulders and arms being exposed are considered acceptable in moderation. Denizens of Fi’andria have an understanding that there are differences in culture. Should one be visiting from another nation that has a different expectation of attire than that of the city, then they are to be accepted by the majority and not looked down upon. There are still some who maintain the idea that one’s skin should not be overtly exposed no matter the situation.

Casual Wear

When wearing any attire in Celia’nor, it is common that they wear the best that they can afford. This comes to a split between those that chose fashion versus what is useful for them. When one visits Fi’andria, it is common to see plenty of individuals with long flowing robes that have many layers and attract the eye with their vibrant color. Even in the most casual of robes, they still have unique elements that set them apart from everyone else and to encourage individuality. Within Celia’nor, there is a firm belief amongst many of the denizens that one’s outward expression is representative of themselves, hence with the casual attire being more free-form than that of formal attire. Long flowing robes are quite common to be seen with various neutral tones complemented by a monochrome color. Pants are quite common amongst both men and women and often accompanied by long flowing capes or sashes that adorn one’s blouse. Jewelry is common amongst most of the society members as a way to keep inconspicuous enchantments on one’s person.

Formal Wear

To many individuals in Celia’nor, formal attire is very strict when it comes to it being dictated on events as is a maintenance of the dress code provided during those times. It is seen as disrespectful to wear anything less than your best when a formal dress code is indicated as one wearing such is a sign of mutual respect towards the event planners who put time into the event and expect time to be put into how one presents themselves. Formal attire consists of clean robes, pants, or gowns, quality clothing, and care for design. The formal attire worn is often that one’s best dressing attire, where the personification of themselves in their everyday wear is amplified to acute perfection made in every detail. Finely woven capes with intricate features, pants made of fine silks that layer under a sash or belt and puff out in the perfect spots, and jewelry that has been custom-designed to go with every detail of the outfit; that is what makes formal attire stand out from everyday wear. Formal wear is where fashion truly takes on as an art form where self-expression and creativity are encouraged to be progressed. In Celia’nor, when perfection is strived for it is met and fashion is no exception.


The marriage vows are typically spoken before the Princess, members of the council one's talonii and lliran. Vows between an engaged pair are the most significant part of such a ceremony as they declare unity and commitment to one another, a symbol of unending love. Therefore, no intimacy occurs during the ceremonial union, to allow the pair to truly focus upon solidifying their bond.


The people of Celia'nor do not have a set religion but instead folows Ivarilist's ideals.

Celia'nor and it's first capital, Fi'Andria, were established in the year 69 of the second age after a bloody civil war within Haelun'or. The monarchist forces, lead by Ivarielle Ibarellan, were eventually forced out of the city after their initial victory due to a supply shortage on the then island-state of Haelun'or. The people of Ivarielle soon wandered west, were they were greeted by their allies and built their own realm: The Principality of Celia'nor. From here the realm prospered until year 122 of the second age, in which a large voidal tear errupted and leveled the palace. The population saw a decline and after the Mori Invasion the Celia'norian people fled the contitent Almaris alongside the other descendants - at which end, the Principality of Celia'nor was dissolved.

Full Almaris History  

The Silver Anarchy

The Celian people have seen their origins from a period of political instability whilst they originally resided in the former mother state of Haelun'or which they had once referred to as home. The citizens at the time were brought with great discomfort at the hand of the aforementioned instability that had inevitably prompted their timely departure in pursuit of new lands. Prior to the departure in question, the movement for reform and a more prosperous legislature had occurred as they originally sought to remain with hopes of altering the qualms they bore and provide a seam of stability that the state had momentarily lacked.

The monarchists faction in which the Celian’s originated, would stray from the likes of peace as the tension between the groups caused too great of an eerie sentiment of suffocation and dire unease upon the citizens to the extent that the travesty of combat arose. With this atrocious state of conflict the city had succumbed to the likes of the devastation at the hands of the civilians, from the opposing factions including an incessant flame that had engulfed the land in the midst of the distressful mayhem. The traditionalist group sought a means to promote their cause in a different world, leading to the birth of the Haelun'orian Resistance which had acted against the former Monarchist league.

This counter-rebellion, fueled by arson as formerly mentioned and political extremism the monarchist side had started, led to the allies of the new government supporting the rebellion. The Ibarellan loyalists, along with other allies, secured peace, although it was to no true avail as guerilla tactics and a lack of rations that followed the events, led to widespread starvation on the Silver Isle. The government evacuated elCihi’thilln and placed trust in Ivarielle Ibarellan to guide the populace to a new home. From there they went on a journey, later referred to as, “The Great March" by the Celian people. Once they had arrived in the lush woodlands of the east, a local ‘ame ally aided the refugees as they sought to procure a starlit sanctuary upon which they would later erect their own settlement: Fi’Andria, the City of Stars and Embers.

The Rise & Fall of the identity of Celia’nor

Through the sheer toughness of these new residents of the west, amidst trial and struggle over a seemingly endless frame of time, and from exile to peace, came about a will of mighty valiance shared amongst the people of the newly founded civilization, whom were prepared to endure and conquer any threat they may face in effort to preserve the prosperity they has so desperately procured for their new city and principality. It was in this time of relative peace, that the greatest aspects of what defined the being known as Celia’nor, rather than just a former state of its motherland, was attained through its unwavering endurance as it continued to develop at a rapid pace.

Amidst what some may refer to as the new age of nobility, the royal talonnii was keenly established, with the line of Ibarellan rising to authority as they bore royal relations under Her High Princess Ivarielle the First. At this time, many Talonnii’s of upstanding stature were appointed to the privilege of nobility, their status rising in the ranks whilst they rebirthed the ancient tradition of noble power through elite Talonnian. Alongside said development, the city bore a keen relation with the likes of Magic, resulting in the founding of the grand Academy of Celia’nor. Which retained its existence as the center of magical pursuit and education within the realm of Celia’nor, and largely to the remainder of the western world. With intentions to expand its guiding arm of knowledge across the whole continent to educate a new generation of magicians and sorcerers, the academy flourished with grand ease.

Later, in firm belief of Celia’nor’s sovereignty, and a universal desire to fight for her territory and goals, the establishment of the Military, once remembered as the Celiadiraar, came to redefine a new understanding of traditions born within Celia’nor. As history recalls this era had been where militarism became not only the duty of the capable, but the duty of all. In which nearly all citizens universally voted for such as encouraged by the Princess for a fresh military under their origins. This establishment enabled all capable individuals, regardless of race or gender, to serve during times of utter duress, making for the first universal draft of Celia’nor. The mandatory service, as mentioned, had permitted the likes of all men and women to join within the ranks of the Celia’diraar, and enable a sense of deep intertwining between the concepts of militarism and culture as both acted as one in the same for the people of Celia’nor.

For many years after the tale of development, the nation prospered in truth until Ivarielle’s sudden disappearance, yet despite the momentary dismay, her brother, Illarion, swiftly took the reins amidst the frey of confusion and led the nation to even greater heights. His reign was turbulent as he expanded the nation vastly and strengthened it to the height of its development as historians recollect. Unfortunately after nearly a decade, the great Ibarellan’s health declined, leading him to pass on the treasured land and its title to another as he could reign no further. Receiving the crown in light of such unforeseen circumstances, was Ivarielle’s Sister-in-law, Valyris Wynasul, wife to Indris Ibarellan, who led in her husband's stead.

Her reign too was successful as unlike the expansive ideal Illarion possessed, Valyris’s contributions were primarily that of cultural development which had improved the public's identities ever so thoroughly. Yet, much to the dismay of likely herself and the people of Celia’nor, the end of Valyris’s reign suffered drastically as disaster struck the land: A Voidal Tear that had laid dormant for decades, unbeknownst to the public, had erupted the Palace and the vast land surrounding, causing widespread eradication and destruction to the nation whilst without a modicum of peace, great harm trailed in tow in relation to its international and internal reputation. Many accused Valyris for the downfall that followed, prompting talonniian such as the Ranaleth’s sudden departure. The Mori invasion that followed soon after only made the situation more dire. And in Camp Savoy, the Celian Nation was dissolved, leaving those few Celians who survived the catastrophe to fracture unsure of what to call home.


At first, all seemed lost for the Celianorians upon their arrival on Aevos. The temporary sucessor-state to Celia'nor, named Talar'nor turned out to be weak and short-lived, with its leadership failing to maintain its population. Yet when all seemed lost, the likes of two Celianorian Elves founded a winery in Lurin, where they began to regather their lost people. Inspired by their glory, the outcast royal family and the rightful heir, Illyria Ibarellan returned and was shortly after appointed leader by the commander of the winery. In 153 S.A., Illyria Ibarellan marched west and founded the Second Principality of Celia'nor with the support of the High Prince of Malin'or, Húrin.

Full Aevos History  

A new beginning

After some time, the likes of five Celian Elves who had strayed from their former land sought to reignite the spark of their once Celian Identity, although this ideal primarily encompassed that of the culture they so dearly cherished. Along their pursuit of such, the gathering had inevitably settled to establish a pleasant winery resembling their forgotten land within the ever so graciously welcoming realm of Lurin. Per their settling, the aherals would find comfort in deeming a title for their beloved winery to be then known as, “The Starlight Winery". In time the populace would later inaugurate a compact village to be made, presently surrounding the winery’s being, as an influx of those they once held dear began to accumulate alongside them, bringing about a sentiment of remembrance. To the surprise of many, even the once thought to be dead, Illyria Ibarellan, formerly appointed heir of their former land, trickled within their realm once more, only to be met with joyous greetings and welcomings by her people; yet she did not press any claims to leadership.

Those in authority of the winery during such period were hasty to present the Ibarellan an offering of leadership in an effort of restoring their once treasured monarchy of the Ibarellan. Subsequent to this ideal, lengthy discussion ensued before the Ibarellan restoration of power was procured by the proposition’s acceptance by Illyria, leading the entity of Celia’lin to continue in prosperous identity within the Silver Lubba’s lands. Yet, as they grew in substantial numbers, their land became more sparse as it soon became apparent they were in dire need of erecting a proper town for themselves once more just as their ancestry had.

Iyun’s depiction of Celia’nor, circa 174 SA.

Just like her aunt Ivarielle, Illyria marched westwards with her people. They found an abandoned fortress of Celia'Diraar in the north of the milands, were they recreated the Principality of Celia'nor with support of the High Prince of Malin'or, Húrin. They named their new town "Leyu'sil", meaning "graceful sword" in the ancient tongue of the elves. Her reign saw the Aevos Coaltion War. A conflict spanned over ten years which resulted in the destruction of the League of Veletz and Principality of Stassion. Despite the later's reformation, the premature departure of Celia'nor due to the fledgling state's unreadiness remains a stain on Celia'nor's otherwise stable record of loyality.

Under Illyria's reign which lasted from 145 to 159 S.A., the tiny town was expanded twice and soon Celia'nor had reclaimed its place among the largest of Elven Nations. In 159 S.A., Illyria stepped down in favour of her son, Illthrak Ibarellan. Illthrak's rule has since seen the creation of many alliances with old and emerging states alike, such as Urguan, Haense and Reinmar.


Celia'nor is an absolute monarchy, lead by the Ibarellan Talonnii and saveguarded by numerous nobles houses. The Council of Stars and the Congress assists the royarchs of Celia'nor in their duties.

Full Politcs  


The government of Celia'nor is overseen by the Prince and Council alongside various advisors hand picked by the Prince. There are are two branches that form the main government. There is the higher council known as Laureh’heial, which is overseen specifically by the prince/princess of Celia’nor. Only those of high elven blood may ever hold a position on Laurir’heial, lest one rises through heavy meritocracy or through times of war. The advisors to the Prince serve to ensure that the will of the Princess and nation is maintained by the council during their decisions.

The Principality of Celia'nor adheres absolute primogeniture in matters of succession to the Princely throne. Typically, this means the oldest son or daughter inherits the crown. The current ruling dynasty is the The Bloodline of Ibarellan.


The nobility of Celia'nor is for the most dedicated of productive members of society. The path of nobility is a versatile one, it is through dedicated service to the Principality of Celia'nor. The paths can be one or multiple, through working in the government as stewards, assisting with the quartermasters, in politics, contributing to magical advancements within the city, and running a thriving guild that provides to Fi’andria. Yet, these are not the only ways that one might attain a high standing in society. It is through stellar progress that the people thrive in tandem with the Principality. Once an individual or family has proven themselves and their loyalty to the Principality, it will be announced during court and an oathing ceremony will occur with either the individual's accomplishments brought to light in front of Celian society or the entire family swearing their fealty.

Malaurir ~ Princess

The head and body of state that rules the government and military of Celianor. Her Highness and her family enjoyed an exceptional lifestyle and privileges. Yet, it comes with great responsibility to bring prosperity and stability to the realm of Celia’nor. Only the Princess may go by the title while her family retains the titles of Lady or Lord.

Evarir ~ Preserver/Protector

The most prestigious rank within Celian society that can only be bestowed through the High-Princess. This is given to nobility that have proven themselves and their families worthy of creating a fief within the lands of the Principality of Celia’nor. These individuals also retain the right to wear jewelry which are reserved for nobility in and out of the court.

Ever since its inception as a fledgling nation, the Celiadiraar have been a backbone of Celia’nor. Wrought not from peaceful resolution, but rather from armed conflict, the Principality has always seen it strongly necessary to uphold a large military in order to preserve the cohesion and safety of the country. From the days where Ivarielle the Great led the elves that would be Celia’norian to the west to present-day, the military of Celia’nor has evolved and changed, but always remained a staple. Now, in our nation’s modern state of affairs, the Diraar seek to expand our ranks, to reach new heights never before seen for the institution, and to allow the Celiadiraar to compete with even the strongest of armies globally. Therefore, this missive is directed to all Celia’norians and otherwise - folks who may be inclined to dedicate themselves to such a cause as protecting their nation, or whatever motivation may exist in their hearts for joining our great Diraar.
