The legends of Ejheria say that Humans and Miu are two halves of the same coin, born of the ashes of the Gods, and pressed into the Eternity which is light and shadow. While both can exist without the other, it is difficult to find either in its purest form. Likewise, in Ejheria, you rarely find Humans or Miu existing separately. Both are held equally sacred by the Ejherian people as a whole, and both have equal right to rule the Kingdom. It is said that the Lightbringers tend the Beacons of Hope and Justice. Thus is their place within Ejheria. Traditionally, only Humans may act as the Keepers of the Beacons, great lighthouses that dot the coastline.
While all races can be found everywhere in the world, Humans are, perhaps, the most adventurous when it comes to moving on to new places and new experiences. Humans tend to live life to the utmost in all of their endeavors, and their incessant love of food, drink, and entertainment are equaled by no other race. When their way of life is questioned or threatened, Humans fight perhaps the fiercest to defend those freedoms.
They recently suffered an upset when there elemental alignment was forcibly shifted from Light to Fire. The Oracle has since explained that it is an elemental re-balancing, the payment of a blood debt by the Kaliska to the Miu, and not a punishment visited upon either Humans or Kaliska. Despite this, some among them remain angry at the loss of their "ancestral" element.
