This is the nation formed by the split of the Silvanesti following the Kinslayer Wars. These 'high' elves left the east in an effort to get away from the rigidity of their cousins; however, they have become rigid over time as well. The Qualinesti are more likely to leave Qualinost, the Qualinesti capital, and venture out to see the rest of Krynn, though by no means is this common. The Qualinesti are ruled by the Speaker of the Suns. The most famous and notable Qualinesti elves are the likes of Kith-Kanan, Laurana, Gilthanas, Porthios and (to a certain extent) Tanis Half-Elven.
