At some point, candidors migrated from their homeland of Canitea (Elderland; can meaning land, nitea meaning elder/ancestral) to the mountain ranges of a land named by them as Candor (Highland; can meaning land, andor meaning high).
Extinction and Legacy
Part of the empire settled on the woods of Carborea, the territory of the elven nation of Galea. The candidors were used to build large wood houses, which eventually led to confrontation with the Galeans, who worshipped the forest's trees. During the war, communication between carboreans and candorans was inexistent, and after thousands of years of war, the carboreans were an entire new race. Eventualy, peace was signed and the forest was divided between its two main races.
