In response to the bloodshed, Aperion puts a halt to the fighting by forcing all of the Faerekind, those who were fighting the Dragonkind, and those who would not fight, to return to the north and gather upon the plains before him. Aperion gives the Faerekind a choice: to leave the world with him, or to remain upon the earth. Those who depart the world with Aperion fly away into the sky and heavens to a place that has been prepared for them in the stars. Those who elect to stay upon the earth are stripped of their wings. This event is variously referred to as "The Fall," "The Departing," and "The First Scathing." Those that are stripped of their wings come to be called the Elifaen, or Fallen Ones.
