Alfheim
Alfheim (Fae: j#e9`V`Bt) is an aerial continent, one of the seven great lands of Qirsyllviar (as well as the smallest), circumnavigating Qirsyllviar's equator, the Grand line, over the course of a year.

As the homeland of the human-sized races of Qirsyllvian Fairies, it is divided into territories occupied by the ten different races as individual sovereign nations, nine around the edge and one in the center, separated from the rest by a vast neutral zone.

It is not uncommon for the different races to get into skirmishes or go to war with each other, mostly over each other's borders or within the neutral zone. the cities, towns and villages around the neutral territory is the only place on the flying land where all races co-exist and engage in commerce peacefully.

The Kingdom of Dayrkon (2`C`Û6z5^) is the homeland of the Imps in southeastern Alfheim. They border the Muspelheim to the southwest and Vanaheim to the north.

Occupying the alpine areas of the southeast, the purple-styled Imps of Dayrkon, also known as Dark Fairies, are the masters of night and are blessed with great night vision. Though capable of using different types of magic, Imps excel at using Dark Magic in combat. This tends to give them a bad reputation with the surface. Imps are also known to have night vision, allowing them to see in near total darkness. However, this ability is considered only to be second to that of a Spriggan's.

The Kingdom of Faliryion (ej#7T`Û`B5^) is the homeland of the Cait Sith, also known as Beast Fairies, in western Alfheim. Occupying a plain area, with the capital located on an iconic peninsula jutting out, they border the Swyllvaine to the south, and the Melodi to the north.

The trait that sets them apart from the other races is being blessed with cat ears and tails, giving them advanced hearing. Cait Siths were believed to be the ancestors of Werecats at one point in the past, but this has since been proven false. Cait Siths, like the Sylphs, are known to be incredibly fast and agile. They are known to use their enhanced speed and agility to strengthen their attacks. Another characteristic unique to the Cait Sith is their capability to tame beasts and use them in battle, such as dragons. They also have the best eyesight of all Alfheim races, making their archers some of the best on Qirsyllviar, second only to elves.

They are in a long-standing friendship treaty with the Sylphs, and will usually come to their aid in times of war.

Neutral Zone

The Neutral Zone is a large area surrounding the Sneachta homeland of Nilfheim and separating the other states from it. By the Laws of Oberon and Titania, no race is permitted to claim any of this particular territory as their own.

The ancient laws makes the neutral zone a convenient place for several reasons:

  • Races that don't get along can fight one another without starting a war, although most of the time they are at war already.
  • It can be used as a meeting place for diplomatic negotiations.
  • And renegades, fairies that have abandoned their homeland or have been banished from them, can make home here unbound.

In the west side of the Neutral Zone is the city of Okeypian, which acts as the unofficial "capital" of the Neutral Zone. It is here that ambassadors and leaders of the main nations conduct diplomatic business without giving anyone a "home advantage". It is also one of the few places that fairies from all races around the continent intermingle peacefully.

Titania's Grove

Situated in the north side of the continent in the Neutral Zone tucked in a gully at the base between twin mountains known as Mount Oberon and Mount Titania, just miles from the northern borders of the Kingdom of Nilfheim, is a lush forested woodland known to all as Titania's Grove, said to be guarded and tended to by High Queen Titania herself. Despite the near inhospitable snowy environment the surrounding territory is known for, the grove is magically resistant to the elements and is lush, green, warm and safe.

Alfheimish fairies also believe that this paradise is where the deceased reside upon being judged fit for the afterlife.

Yggdrasil

In the center of this grove is the mystical tree Yggdrasil (x"Ø278#j%). Also said to be guarded and tended to by Titania herself, thirteen different kinds of Golden Fruits grow in Yggdrasil's branches, and it's said that eating one will grant a boon to the eater, depending on which fruit they eat;

Legends of the fruits grown in the branches of Yggdrasil have persisted for many millennia; however, whether or not the legends are true has never been proven (at least publicly) as the golden fruits wither to ash the moment they are picked. It is believed that only with Titania's blessing is one able to pluck and eat a fruit without it withering.

Notes & Trivia

  • The demonym for people from Alfheim is "Alfheimish".
  • In Fae, the language of fairies, the titles for King & Queen are Tyralor (17Ùj#6Y) & Tyloari (1jØ`N7E`B) respectively. These fairy titles are ancient are are treated with the upmost respect. These titles are often used by pixie monarchs of the surface as well.
    • The titles of High King and High Queen are reserved for Oberon and Titania alone. In Fae, the titles are Jyolk-Tyralor (s`Û`Njz\17Ùj#6Y) & Jyolk-Tyloari (s`Û`Njz\1jØ`N7E`B). The "Jyolk (s`Û`Njz)" prefix is another ancient fairy term meaning "Great", so the latter title is often translated as "High King" or "King of Kings."
    • Another pair of ancient fairy titles are "Tigyarco (1x%`Û`C6z`N)" & "Tigyarca (1x%`Û`C6z`C)" which translate as Emperor & Empress respectively. These titles were used for ancient fairy "emperors" that united the entirety of Alfheim, including the neutral zones, under one banner, whether by diplomacy or conquest. Thrice these empires were formed but they never lasted very long before falling apart again. The last time the imperial titles were used was nearly 3000 years ago, and have not been used since.
  • Despite flying over the equator (which gets the most sunlight) at high altitudes, Alfheim has several different climates around the continent, as well as changing seasons. It is believed that ancient magic keeps the biomes constant, and the seasons the same as the surface, despite its altitude and constant motion.
  • The Abjaksan of Alfheim has a unique reincarnation method than the other six. While the race the other six are reincarnated into is pretty much random, the Abjaksan of Alfheim is reincarnated in a cycle.
    • The reincarnation cycle of the Abjaksan of Alfheim is:
      • Spriggan, Sylph, Ifrit, Cait Sith, Undine, Leprechaun, Gnome, Puca, Imp, Sneachta.
    • Despite this, the race of the first Abjaksan of Alfheim, Luctiana Ophihaya, is not known. No one knows what race she was, or even if she was one of the eleven recognized Alfheimish Races. Some legends say that she was a descendant of one of Oberon and Titania's many children, but whether or not this is true is disputed my most historians.
  • While it is not uncommon for different races to marry and reproduce with one another, usually in the neutral zones, there are no hybrids. Offspring between two races is one or the other, usually whichever race the mother was, but interracial offspring being the father's race is not unheard of.
    • Despite this, all the races claim descent from Oberon and Titania, more appropriately one of their many children, particularly the early ones; these claims gave rise to part of the creation myth of Alfheim fairies.
  • Despite being separate from one another, all states/races of Alfheim use the same currency with unchanging value, the Yyrdilren.
  • This version of Alfheim was mostly inspired from the world of Alfheim Online from the manga/anime/light novel Sword Art Online, but it has been heavily modified.
