Elven Language (as spoken by Soresta Shalherana)
It seems to be an older dialect of Elvish, but has picked up a fair amount of slang and colloquialisms.

A typical sentence is object-subject. This is to say the thing being acted on comes before the subject doing the action.
Examples: "Maraie ni" and "Mara ni" literally translate to "Good am I", however it means "I am good" the adverbs for "am" and "to be" are often understood as being present, but don't need to be said.
"Calanie linque." Translates to "Green is the grass" or "The grass is green."

To change to past tense add -y to the end of the verbs.
"?Na ya vantay lle?" tranlates to "To where walked you?" "Where did you walk?"
"I alda ya vantay ni." translates to "I walked to the tree." or "The tree to which walked I."

To change to future tense add -o to the end of the verbs.
"?Na ya vantao lle?" translates to "Where will you walk?"
"I alda ya vantao ni." translates to "I will walk to the tree."

Why armed guards for a pacifist religion? Doesn't that go against some of the biggest Shalherana expectations? Speaking as somebody who has been around Shalherana culture for a long time

There are people who would want to do harm to an organization who's only goal is to help people. It is foolish to not plan for an eventuality where protection would be required.
