Lady of Light


Unknown origins and paths led this sylvan nymph, who presumably was a common elven lady in the past, to gain a mysterious power capable of keeping the balance between Light and Darkness in this world. Actually, nobody is sure whether she always had this power or not.

She has been known under many names given by different races, including the Sylvan Essence, the Source of Light, the Lady of Light, and Eloh.

Common people know very little about her true source of power, which relies in the Union of the Darkness and Light in a single, balanced power. However, she has no ability to control the powers of darkness herself, yet she controls the Light to such point that her skin shines with it; this suggests she needs the support of someone else to call upon the Union. That was, according to an ancient elvish legend, what vanquished the greatest—up to now—evil from this world.

Special Notes: This unit has magical attacks, which always have a high chance of hitting an opponent. This unit is able to slow its enemies, halving their movement speed and attack damage until they end a turn. This unit’s arcane attack deals tremendous damage to magical creatures, and even some to mundane creatures. This unit’s powers are increased by the Sylvan Essence (see this ability’s dst='ability_sylvan essence' text='full description' for details).
