"Race" [Zkhsithia] has also the sense of "destiny"; "alone" [instara/] has

... enchantment. They knew best of all arts the skill of flattery. Many Gelfling fell to
their lures. The Gelfling were earth and spirit, masters of song and shaping. They

darkened Crystal within it there spread out evil like a cloud, power that no longer
led to Harmony.
