Return of Twilight
One of the two main branches of elves in the land of Tyris. Thousands of years ago, the two tribes of elves were united in a great elvish empire. This has since decayed, especially with the rise of man between their two power bases, the final straw being when the first king of Tyris united with the elves to defeat the Kree and Beastmen 100 years before. The Kontaurans did not participate in that battle, and instead continued to fight Kree on their own. Because of their decision to not aid the others, they received no aid themselves, causing their war to drag out for decades.
The Kontaurans are a more hardy group, well suited to their massive treehouses and fortresses deep within the Kont Swamp. More recently, the Kree defeated the last bastion of the Kontaurans, Kontaur Keep. Having captured the keep, most Kontaurans were forced to flee the swamp to eastern Tyris, or become slaves to the Kree. This has led to serious conflict with the Tyrisians.
