The Princedom of Fenn, more commonly referred to as Fenn or the Princedom, is the home of the Elven subrace the Mali’Fenn and is one of the most powerful and long-lasting racial nations within the realm. The current capital of the Princedom, Tahu’lareh, is positioned in the eastern mountain range of Arcas.

The government within the Princedom is an absolute hereditary Monarchy, the head of the state known as the Grand Prince. The title has always been held by the Tundrak bloodline, the founding family of the Princedom. The Grand Prince has a group of advisors that are apart of the other major bloodlines, dealing with things such as housing, religious ceremonies, and diplomacy. They are known as the Grand Council The military plays a major part of the government, the army known as the Ivae’fenn centralizing much of the careers in Fenn. The head of the Ivae’fenn, known as the Grand Marshall, has a place on the Grand Council

In most situations, Fenn prefers to remain neutral on the world stage. However, due to the strong military within the nation, Fenn possesses powerful defensive and offensive capabilities and only attacks when provoked. The Princedom maintains positive relations with its neighbors the Kingdom of Curonia and the Diarchy of Irrinor, along with the Under-Realm of Urguan, the Holy Orenian Empire amongst others.

The Princedom of Fenn has been lost and reforged a few times, always brought together by the Tundrak bloodline. The earliest records still intact show the founding of the Princedom in the land of Anthos.

Geography

The Princedom consists of mainly mali'fenn and as their name suggests they have a natural affinity for the cold tundras of the many continents the mortal races have resided in. Their cities often resemble a fortress, reflecting on their militaristic, isolationist nature.

  • Atlas
  • Arcas

Government

The Princedom is a Hereditary absolute monarchy with the Grand Council primarily being the legislative body of the Princedom of Fenn. This council is presided over by the Prince and the positions on the council are often given to members of the Ah'Laureh Talonnii'an.

Chosen Families

The Ah’laureh Talonnii’an (Lit.: Chosen Families) are effectively the noble houses of the Princedom who all trace their lineage to the first Mali'fenn. Traditionally, and for the centuries since the collapse of Elcihi’thilln, the Mali’fenn have been led by these few families, those that had once held the top managerial positions of the original laboratory. This tradition has continued within the Princedom, with the families controlling most of the power of the Princedom between them. These bloodlines each have a duty to fulfil and failure to follow through with this duty has caused problems for not only the bloodline but the Princedom itself. Their forms have now been changed to Common.

Thuln’diraar or the Tundrak Bloodline

Diraar’onn or the Drakon Bloodline

Ante’mordu or the Atmorice Bloodline

Sil’siimah or the Sylric Bloodline

Tathvir Bloodline

Annungilben Bloodline

More in-depth information about each bloodline can be found here.

Society

The Mali'fenn are a solitary people, focused on the perpetuation of the self-realized benevolence brought about with the belief of their total purity. Housing is provided pre-furnished, with comfortable and on occasional rather lavish decoration. Their right to free speech is not impeded, as the Mali'fenn tend to hold a trusting attitude for their leaders, being allowed to voice opinions without fear. Aesthetically, the Mali'fenn take great pride in their appearance. This often leads to the use of excessive jewellery and the showing-off of tattoos depicting deities and houses. Their clothing is body-conforming, more often than not with shorter sleeves. For those who choose to wear armour, it is forged to the highest quality and shaped into ornate, though still practical, styles.

Economy

brief description of the economy in this particular realm

Culture

While once the Mali'fenn were ruled over by the Grand Council, who maintained a noticible degree of authority, and the Prince. Today, the Prince is the absolute ruler of his people, while lawmaking is reserved for the Grand Council, who usually do so with the support of the people and not without the signature of the Prince. The Mali'fenn are a very close knit group, lead primarily by a few long-lasting families. The term Thill'al refers to the achievement of purity, and such is the state of being the Mali'fenn consider themselves to live in. This is reflected in the structure of their government, being restricted to Mali'fenn alone for those important roles in the highest of echelons. Despite the clear existence of an organized religion, the Mali'fenn do not care what religion outsiders or citizens practice, so long as it does not harm anyone around them.

Art

No art of note is known to have been created in Fenn as of 1700.

Literature

The Mali'fenn lack any leisurely literature of note, as the vast majority of their works consist of those created for the purposes of documentation, education, and propaganda. Their means by which to articulate is very fluid, self-described as being "well-versed". The authors of the codexes detailing family history are of the heads of the houses themselves while bloodline archives are held by the Justiciars.

One-piece of snow elven literature is a poem by the name of "My Lover: He Wanders The Tundra" by Katrina Atmorice. A poem that has become a classic and is often performed by drunk mali'fenn.

Music

No music of note is known to have been created in Fenn as of 1700.

Religion

The Wyrvunic Contract

Whilst not originally religious, they bound their fate to Wyrvun, thus both saving them and giving themselves away as a race. They worship him not as an Aengul, but as a god, with six other Aenguls making up what is called “Wyrvun and his Six”. While only Wyrvun is considered a god, the others are widely respected by the Snow Elves overall. Once again, though, their principle of thill’al means that they care not what religions are practiced within their lands, so long as it is not detrimental to themselves. The religion is under a government body known as the Faith of the Seven. The Faith is directed by a High Priest/Priestess, which is a position within the Grand Council. In the Faith of Wyrvun’fiyem, there are six sects that dedicate their position in the temples to pray to the Aenguls, the seventh sect being the faith itself.

Fenn’ikur The Fenn’ikur, or “Wrought of Ice”, are those revered figures of the Snow Elves’ history that would in other cultures be considered paragons or saints. They are those that have contributed to the race at a higher level than others, and are considered, Mali’fenn or not, to be “of the ice”, and as such raised to the level of the Snow Elves. The title is earned through significant service and importance to either the Snow Elves as a whole, or to Wyrvun, able to be earned through both secular and religious means.

War

Snow Elves are isolationist and the Princedom follows this by keeping to itself in global matters and only lending a hand to close to allies.

Random Tidbits

  • The Mali'fenn rarely get along with the other subraces of Mali, which has lead to their extremely isolationist culture, and reserved personalities.
