There are many stories revolving around Nesis Altier, the founder of the races in Altier. The dwarves and dragonborn claim to have been created by her, whereas the elves and eladrin credit her in helping them discover the rift between Altier and the Feywild. Even the humans say that in their creation by the dwarves, Nesis Altier altered the process to create them as a powerful counter-balance against dwarven ambitions for the land.
Some say that she is an angel of Bahamut. Others say she is a godess himself, and even others say she was simply a powerful wizard or planeswalker who found a desolate land and decided to populate it. There are many legends about Nesis, and perhaps not so surprisingly, her name appears in texts, tablets, writings and pictures found within the walls of the recently discovered Dragonian ruins. There has been no small flurry of interest surrounding her and the truth behind who this mysterious being is, as more and more excavations find her name and the myths and stories surrounding her.
