Elothean lorethews will tell you there was a time when there were no Humans, and some Elves will tell you they preferred the time when there were no Humans, but all that is water under the bridge now.

Humans run the middle road in abilities, being naturally neither inclined nor disinclined toward anything -- which can, in itself, be a tremendous asset. Many of the races owe the founding of Elanthia's great inter-species empire to intrepid Humans, without whom these times of peace and mutual cooperation simply would not have existed.
The figure speaks: "I am Human, the middle road of the races. We have the potential for skill in all things, though the others may best us in one or another. We are less strong than some and not as fast as others, yet our kind prospers. For while we may lack some of the advantages of the others, we also lack their disadavantages...."
