The only true elven nation in Korvaire, Valenar is also one of the youngest. Inhabited by warrior people with no desire to maintain any connection to their homeland, Valenar is in a state of constant conflict with its neighbors. Valenar might be the spark that ignites the next war.

The region of Valenar was once part of Cyre but a number of Aerenal elves who had come to Khorvaireto fight in the last war, staked a claim on the territory as the conflict progressed. These elves are more martial in nature than their comrades who worship the Undying Court, and they want little more from life than the opportunity for glorious bloodshed.

The elves of Valenar are divided into warclans. Some clans serve as mercenaries for other nations, and others practice and spar constantly with one another across Valenar. Still others wander the wilds in search of glorious battle, and chafe that the end of The Last War has made their sport that much more difficult. High King Vadallia, who led a continget of elves in Khorvaire during The Last War rules the nation, but Valenar remains primarily a collection of warclans. the elves have little desire to establish extensive bodies of laws or any cultural identity beyond their religious and martial activities.

Valenar is well known for the magnificent warhorses bred, trained, and riddeen into battle by the elves. Originally broguth from Aerenal, this breed of warhorse is the envey of all Khorvaire, and the elves take great precautions to ensure that no breeding stock leaves their borders.
