- Season 1: Episode 1
For as long as they remember, the Healers have lived on Healer Island. Peaceful and kind, they strive to live in harmony with the sprites that inhabited the island before they did, and with nature itself.
Elders tell tales of an ancient age where Healers lived in nomadic tribes in the mountains surrounding the crater of a dormant volcano. At the time, communities were small and disparate but already lived alongside sprites peacefully.
Over time, these small communities have grown and moved down to what became the lush valleys of Verdalia, slowly specializing their trades, crafts, and resources. The gathering of crystals and harvesting of precious herbs all over the island facilitated contacts with sprites, who have long been friends to the Healers of Verdalia.
Various Healer communities coexist in the fields of Verdalia, each led by an elder. These leaders are not chosen because of their age, family, or their experience. They’re the wisest among their fellow Healers, with the strongest bonds with the sprites, and they put the good of their community (humans and sprites alike) first.
Healers are respectful, thoughtful, and wise. They value knowledge that comes from books, tradition, and stories. They tell tales of their history, even from the time of the Ancients, and they make efforts to keep their traditions alive. They’re humble folks who view their relationship with all other living beings as more important than the pursuit of wealth or even knowledge.
Healers do not keep secrets. They think everyone should equally have access to all knowledge and art. They also believe that art (in all its forms) is a pillar of existence and elevates the mind.
Depending on the powers they favor, their skin bears different markings. These ceremonial marks are painted with special paints and oils, created by combining magic and specific ingredients. Most Healers take great pride in their markings.
