The Firstborn are the first ever mortal incarnations of the Elements of the world. After millennia of the banishment of the Elemental Spirits, the world's balance began to fall into disarray. As such, Ana took essence from the very souls of the Elemental Spirits, and imbued mortals with their awesome power. The Firstborn were the most powerful Elementals who ever lived, and are considered the greatest masters of their element. These individuals were so powerful and wise, that Ana granted them sentience beyond death, so they could commune with and guide their descendants, as well as see the world they helped restore.
Most Firstborns went by their aliases, with only a few keeping their real names.
All Firstborn were chosen over 2,000 years before the story began, and era which has become known as the Era of The Firstborn.
