The Esoteric Union
The Esoteric Union is a union of mystics, arcanists, and alchemists. It was the second union to form, and did so out of a group called the Esoterim.
The Esoterim were secretive mystics, who banded together to research and preserve arcane and occult knowledge. When rumours started to spread that the Esoterim were looking to uncover powers strong enough to rival the Sefra, and perhaps even the Winds themselves, the general public began to view the Esoterim unfavourably. Those rumours stopped when Elo Aël, brother of the Esoterim leader Raph Aël, married Monarch Sylla Halzhaan, and in turn made Raph Aël her court mystic. The Esoterim enjoyed royal support from then on, and turned into the Esoteric Union – free to act in an official manner, and leaving their previous secrecy behind.
