The first Elementals are the oldest known living entities in the World. They predate the Titans as well as the Primordials. Elementals are the physical embodiment of nature itself and are bound to its laws. These wonderous creatures boast extreme affinity to their primary element, to the point they can restore themselves with it. Their powers are vast ranging from horrific destructive potential to life-nourishing.

Water; our blood
Air: our breath
Earth; our body
and Fire; our spirit
Elementals have roamed the realms as long as there have been elements to fuel them. Despite coming from the elements found in the universe, each one has a unique signature that makes pinpointing their exact abilities a trivial pursuit.
Elementals are driven by nature, even their mindset directly reflects their element. For example, Fire elementals are prone to impulsive action and anger quite easily while Earth Elementals are calm and protective in nature, preferring deep contemplation before taking action. Elementals all disappeared from the world with the recent Mortal expansion, the destruction of the Rhy'din continent was far too agonizing to witness. Yet as nations died and civilization dwindled, regrowth is taking root in the corners of Rhy'din, thus enabling the return of the species. A glimmer of hope that not all is lost within these lands, after all.
Perhaps some of the oldest living creatures known to man, Elementals are physical embodiments of the elements of the world. They are capable of producing numerous wonders including the ability to heal wounds through the miraculous purity of water, create gouts of destructive flame, produce lightning from the tips of their fingers, and even encase themselves in a protective earthen cocoon.
Many of the Old Ones are tucked away deep within the secret areas of the world where other, younger Elementals tend to them and learn all they can from their vast knowledge. Over the ages, Elementals have gained legendary status among both the scientific and religious fields. Professionals can take pieces of a slain elemental core and use it to imbue various weapons and armor. Whereas many older religions lauded the Gaia's Chosen as demigods and agents of their lords.
