The elven community in Witchlight Strand is strong and coherent with a distinct sense of togetherness. But they also possess a lukewarm attitude towards non-elves in general. Merenes Anfala is a contradiction to this in that she has traveled the world enough to understanding that differences in appearance and customs may not be something to automatically fear for but instead can be an enriching experience. Merenes comes from a predominantly elven city of Jaston in Witchlight Strand but her passion for the “Game of the Kings” (chess) has taken her to tours to all the neighboring lands and cultures. Excepting Zarovna, of course.
