In the Brecilian Ruins, a life gem can be found, containing an imprisoned elf's spirit. The presence inside can give the player the Arcane Warrior specialization, but it can also describe some of the ruin's history.

Elves had built the structure long ago. It was a sanctuary where, according to the presence, "the eldest came to slumber", and others came to pay tribute to the gods on their behalf, explaining the presence of altars, tombs and gravestones found in the ruins. Humans were also present at the time, coexisting with the elves in some form.

The structure and its inhabitants, human and elf, was destroyed by a "terrible presence", though exactly what that presence was had been forgotten by the Arcane Warrior's spirit over time.
