Moon elves don’t like dwarfs because years ago, many dwarven families migrated to Ildis to mine a valuable material used for alchemy for the moon elves. The contract was supposed to be mutual: moon elves would pay the dwarves to mine this valuable material, and the dwarves would supply it. The moon elves, however, did not believe the dwarven people integrated fast enough and instead of welcoming them, the moon elves insulted and humiliated the dwarves, calling them “dirty” and "stupid."
The dwarves who migrated to Ildis built a city called the Golden Road and live there with their families. Moon elves dislike the Golden Road, believing it disturbs the beauty of Ildis. Tillie’s hunger for knowledge and education originated from the Golden Road.
