The Killoren came into existence six hundred years ago as nature personified to stop the human and gnomish expansion into and despoiling of nature. They had at least slowed down the ‘cancerous’ grown when suddenly a large segment of the human population became Illumian and began controlling the other races. This control included having them cease their harm of nature. The Killoren didn’t really know what to make of this and distrusted the appearance of progress at first, but after a few centuries they developed close relations with Illumian Root Majuscules to cleanse the land of aberrations and others that tainted, exploited, or destroyed ecosystems. They also worked together to stop logging and pollution.
Killoren think the elves are doing fairly well overall, though they prefer wood elves. They are wary of the city building Illumians and most concerned about what the mongrelfolk will do if their shortsighted and destructive tendencies cease to be held back by the influence of the Illumian over-class. Most have never met gnomes, though they distrust their reputation, and have hardly heard of dwarfs. Some small groups violently oppose the Illumian road system.
