As a child, most everyone in Eilora is told the tale of the old world, when all of the lands were but one, and all of the people lived and rejoiced in harmony. Back then, they say, the lands were ruled by a powerful wizard. He was known as Lord Elben. They say Lord Elben had seven sons (and daughters). When the time had come for Lord Elben to meet his Deity in the great skies, he had told his children to unite and rule as one. They called them the Circle of Seven. Not long after his passing (some say weeks even), Lord Elben’s children began to fight over how things should be ruled, and who was better at ruling than others. They say that Elben’s children fought with such great magiks that Eilora split into seven different lands, and all of the waters of the great sea rushed between them, as if the water gods were afraid of what would happen should these seven ever meet again.
