Motes in the Serpent's Eye
The Elven Nation
The various elven realms and republics throughout the galaxy have banded together in a loosely bound coalition—the Elven Nation—to make their common views heard.
Previous emperors created an advisory position on the Imperial Council for the elected representative of the EN, and this ambassador’s words carried much weight in the Empire. With the advent of Mezzenbone’s reign, relations between the elves and the Empire have worsened. In a sign of his disrespect for the EN, Mezzenbone appointed a drow to the elven ambassador’s position.
Many elves have been expecting trouble with the new emperor for centuries. They long ago began to grow a number of new starships. Some of these are large enough to transport entire cities full of elves should such an exodus become necessary.
