Hamadryad legends have it that humans were born from WhiteWater trees, a type of tree that disappeared centuries ago. These trees were able to give birth to a creature that would later have any neither spiritual nor telepathic bond with them, thus leading to the death of the generating trees. This is the reason why WhiteWater trees are still called "the Trees of Life and Death".
Left to their own devices, the first human creatures were nurtured by hamadryads, but very soon humans learned to take care of the new-borns. Millennia later, when the last WhiteWater tree died, men had fully learned how to give birth to children and had become a new species, a species ready to write its own history.
Mostly known as sly and insincere rather than intelligent creatures, humans became part of the Council of the Five at the very moment of its foundation. Though not particularly happily welcomed, humans eventually managed to make the most of their position in the Council. Nalr tried many times to swindle the Council requesting funds allegedly needed to help his people recover from catastrophes that had never existed.
Once his cunning plans were uncovered, he had his tongue cut off and was later sentenced to life imprisonment. Banar poisoned and killed his colleagues at the Council but eventually died for drinking from the same cup he had used to get rid of his peers. Seforis owned the biggest breeding farm of blind demons and it is often told that he loved to personally blind the wildest ones, but only after they had been put to sleep.
Many generations had to pass before humans found their own ethics and their place in history. Cha’Sul was a human leader loved by every race for his true heart and his dedication towards all Atherian races. As he said in his speech at his swearing ceremony: "We are all standing here now, all living in the same places, all living like brothers". Today Un’Dar probably is the most loved councillor in the Council of the Six. His attempt at convincing Galaul not to create an army, an episode ended with him losing his right arm ("Because never shall my arm point a weapon against one of my brothers")
