A powerful race of elephantine magic users that are widely accused as the perpetrators of the ritual which split the world.
They view themselves as the resolute caretakers of the masses, who make the hard decisions for the greater good. In the magical shard of Marterris, the Hadjen kept their powerful grip on society by infusing their magic with the power of others; most notably the human Tir.
Now that the shards have rejoined, the Hadjen have found that their powers have become dependent upon the these rituals; sustaining themselves off of the magical energies of the Runic Pools and lesser living creatures.
Some say their lack of self-sustainable magic is a curse; punishment from the ancients for their actions. Others say that is the price they have bravely paid to save the world.
