Elemonk

“They don’t move. Not at all!” That is the usual comment when talking about the Elemonks. Naturally, they do move but their movement is so slow and graceful, it’s hard to distinguish, sometimes, what is happening. The Elemonk is a wood elemental race that focuses on being one with the world around them.

They have incredibly long lives and seem to be attuned to the world around them. They will sit for days and never move but there are times when, although you don’t see them move, they seem to be everywhere at once. One of the theories about this is that they seem to slip in and out of the time stream. Not sure how they do that or even if it’s true.

Another strange ability of the Elemonks is that they seem to be able to communicate with inanimate objects. From talking to them, they indicate that the entire world is alive and everything in it is also alive. Everybody can listen to what the world is saying by just listening. The tough part is that they can’t explain how to listen. They just know that that is the answer.

When questioned about this ability to talk to inanimate objects, they were able to prove this ability to answering questions that no-one could answer. For instance, they were given a test where a human was placed in a room with several pots. The human said a couple of phrases and then left the room. The Elemonk didn’t ever meet the human or didn’t know what happened. When we brought him into the room, we simply asked what happened. The Elemonk was able to recite everything that happened. We still don’t know how he did it.

Interaction

When meeting an Elemonk, you get the sense of calmness. There is nothing rushed about them. Not in the way that they talk or their movements. It seems that everything happens in slow motion. The conversation is the same way. They speak very clearly and in a sort of slow drawl. They don’t tend to embellish their words and are very careful about everything that they say.

The strangest part of dealing with Elemonks is their ability to do things quickly without anyone noticing it. This is even true if you are looking directly at them. For example, if you ask them to construct something, one second you see their hands move slowly in the construction and the next minute, they are almost done. You are unsure about what happened. This seems to even happen when they travel. No one ever seems to recall them walking somewhere or traveling. One minute they are in one location and, later, they are in a different location.
