§ History of Clan Kaíl §
The town of Axis was a land grant endowed to Lebír and one of his sons, named Galif or Galf. Lebír was a Cátern Elf, granted land rites by the King of Cátern, Shafhalóa (Vall), in the Area of Akkisaó or Magic. Clan Kaíl was formed during the Blood Era of King
Shuíemha. The first wave of humankind under Shuíemha produced the first ui`laul clan, the "clan of vengeance." While the formation of Clan Kaíl progressed at the later half of the Blood Era, it
was rumored amongst the sons of Lebír that King Exiv and Queen Towldar lived secretly in the T'Bleth Swamps towards the west of the town. Because of
this belief, Lebír hid his treasure in the swamps with hopes that King Exiv would return to rule. With the Magic of the Ravens, and the blessing of the goddess,
Clan Kaíl has been the greatest ui`laul clan in Arden's history, let alone in the Eíshk.
The town of Axis was built as a tribute to Towldar, goddess of magic and the ravens. The town was erected in her honor and to this day, the people of Axis visit
her temple and pay homage to her there. Axis was the Stronghold of Clan Kaíl during the Sad Era, and this clan was a devout ally to King Tristan durin the Kíette
Era. The men and women of Clan Kaíl are predominantly ui`laul, half-elf, and the men and women of this clan favore their elfin ancestory over the human.
They believed that the magic of the indigenous ravens and elfin magic granted them invincibility during the despair of the Sad Era. The Hero of Clan Kaíl was
Shalíes the Invincible, noted to being the first Kinkayle or Kin`Kaíl. Towldar was first worshipped by Shalíes and the Clan at Axis, and Shalíes
built the Raven Temple in her honor.
During Khíettan Còtta, King Tristan established his kingdom, but Clan Kaíl had already been, long but extinct. The fire of the clan was extinguished after the coronation
of King Tristan and the formation of his Kingdom. King Tristan never wanted to
forget the causes of the "savior" during the Sad Era, Shalíes, the Invincible. So, King Tristan appointed Dterrmoít Kin`Kaíl (Dermit), a blood-ascendant of the great Hero, as Aide de camp in Durkàny.
Even at the insistence of Dermit's father, Damhon, was King Tristan compelled to continue the legacy of Shalíes. Soon, the long lost Clan Kaíl came together and flocked
to Tristan's aid. If there was one clan who loved King Tristan out of the ui`laul, it was Clan Kaíl.
Sometimes, things appear hearty from the outside, but deception is always close! Daulky Kinkayle betrayed King Tristan and trapped him at Kesky Point with the help from
Clan Kuíl, the clan of King Ilùviuks. This act was grossly insolent and odious. The foul attitude of Daulky Kinkayle disrupted the utopian era of King Tristan. The elfin
fire of his blood was misused to seek the downfall of a noble King and Queen. Fortunate for Daulky Kinkayle, he was square with the house, when he was tried before the House of Síemh at
the town of Kuíl. Clan Kaíl is the heritage of Daulky Kinkayle and Coànir, the Elemental Wonder. Coànir was the last living Kinkayle
of the time in the Eíshk. The Kue Empire did not take a census of those living in the Eíshk after the Eíshk was sealed off from the Empire. It is not known what became of the Kinkayles thereafter,
if in fact Coànir begat children, and if the Kinkayles survived the tyranny of King Ilùviuks. Though Coànir never assumed the surname of Kinkayle during his Insurrection against King Ilùviuks,
the name Kinkayle does not appear anywhere else in Arden's history after Coànir.
Today, the town of Axis still commemorate the "fighting Kinkayles" as the heroes of Clan Kaíl.
