It is told that the first Elves to come through the 'World Gate' found a world full of beautiful woodlands and terrible beasts. It was Seren who told the eight families that if they were to survive in this hostile environment they must form a single community for mutual protection. Seren then proceeded to show them all to a clearing in the forest, where she had already created 'The Tower of Voices', a place for all Elven kind to congregate and the future home of 'The Assembly of Elders'. Over the following days Seren imparted her idea for a new city, a city where all Elves have access to hear her words, a city where all Elves can live in peace, a living city made of the very same crystal of which she herself was made.
It was decided that the city should be set out in an octagon with eight walls and eight towers. Each of the eight clans would have its own segment of the city. Each segment would be edged on one side by a city wall with its opposing corner at the city centre, where 'The Tower of Voices' is located. This would give each of the clans equal access to hear the words of Seren and equal responsibility for the citys protection in the case of a siege. Seren then provided one special seed for every clan, telling them that each seed should be taken to the centre of each clans segment of the city. Once there, it should be planted where it will develop to form a tower. The eight clans did this and soon there were 9 great towers in the clearing, each tower was different and had formed to meet the needs of the clan that planted it.
And so, the city of Prifddinas was born.
