Long ago, a massive migration occurred in neighboring Askia. Thousands of Elves and other non-human sentient races, fled from persecution and crossed the Ahl Bridge and headed into a, then small, Solaris. This event was called the Sindarin Migration. Since then, Solaris has grown into a large and powerful city.
Most inhabitants of Solaris are elves. There are a large amount of halflings and gnomes as well.
The 1000 feet long bridge crosses a large part of the Ahl river that leads out of Hawthorne, into Askia. It is said to possess ancient elven magic.
