There are tales that tell of a tall non-descript humanoid that helps with magic or artifacts when people are in need that surface from time to time building the legend of Raknarius.
Z’than ~ Dwarves, Goliaths, Gnomes
Another of the immortals like Raknarius, Z’than is said to be the father of all the Dwarves, Gnomes, and Goliaths. The Dwarves claim that Z’than is still creating passageways deep within Algia and only turns to the surface in times of great need. Many dwarves and gnomes are currently questing for Z’Than to see if they can find and persuade him to return to the surface and help them against the Culuz.

Like Z’than and Raknarius, he is described as a tall humanoid of no determinable race, with a weathered walking staff and an ancient stained broad rimmed leather hat. He is the patron of travelers and of sailing boats. Among the seafaring elves, there are stories of coming upon a very tall man in a small sailing boat that no matter how they try, even with the wind to their backs and their fastest ships, they can never catch up to him to confirm that it is Ferisal.
Argos ~ Alchemistry
Argos is believed to related to Raknarius and is one of the original immortals. Legends tell that after the creation of the world was completed, Argos and Raknarius travelled together to see what Quril and the immortals had created. Raknarius began to study and learn of the magic forces that now imbued the world and focused on exserting his will over them for control. Argos, on the other hand, looked around him and found many materials that could be combined to enhance and bestow magical qualities upon the new races. He is said to reside in a magical cabin that moves from place to place in the world. The legend continues that within this cabin you can find any magical potion or powder that has ever been created, for a price.
Langstan ~ Devas
Langstan is one of the “missing” Immortals. Not a lot is known about this Immortal other than he helped create the Devas. Langstan has gone missing for millenium, even the other Immortals have no idea.
