History

Slow and tough, the Living Stone are biological stones with fire in their veins.

The Living Stone are the newest race to join the others in the Elemental world. They were created through some accident that took place at the Cataclysm, which they call the event of Creation. Far underground, perhaps by great pressure or some other unknown force, a Fire Shard exploded. This birthed the first of the Living Stone, quite literally stone men and women come alive. When they crawled to the surface of the world they were originally mistaken for Golems, and thus greatly feared. But the Living Stone, with no culture of their own, quickly adopted the Kingdom way of life, believing in the right to forge one's own destiny seeing as they had none of their own.

Beyond that, very little is known about the Living Stone. Their bodies are on a biological level completely different from anything else in the world, so much that they cannot rightly be considered to be alive like others. Of course, noone who has ever met a living stone would make such a claim to their face. Their stony bodies allow them great power in battle, although they move much slower than a human would of the same size - no doubt their great weight is to blame. Amongst the Living Stone, only one moves and acts more "human" - their leader, Ceto. They say he was closest to the Fire Shard when it exploded, and empowered him, giving him his unique orange colour. Because he is more easily understood outside the Living Stone society, and also understands the surrounding world around them better, he now leads them. Unlike other sovereigns, Ceto was born with the ability to channel magic, rather than having to learn it, possibly a result of a shard quite literally being his creator.
