The Elpin are the great hunters of Tantam. Whether wild creatures, missing ships, or lost races, the Elpin will hunt. Under the guidance of the Cetus, the Elpin have come to Lystran to search for derelict vessels containing high technology. However, since their arrival the Elpin have retreated to an unknown star system. Only scout vessels have been seen since then. Those vessels do not appear to be fully under control and may sometimes become hostile.
