Bestial Elder Race is a colloquial name given to an unknown, extinct race. The only remnants of this race are giant stone totem poles scattered around Yaleka and [human continent] and myths of some races and peoples. It was purportedly a beast-man race known for ferocity and tyranny over younger races. They are credited with being the originators of the werewolf curse, which according to myths was their means of rewarding their greater servants with greater ferocity and stamina.
