At the heart of the dense forest dwelled a sordid tribe of snake-charmers who lay with the serpents they controlled. Among them was Eltrena, who had became an outcast among her kind. She attracted the attention of the Archduchess, widely known to have a rather... unique personality. Eltrena was gifted a large sum of gold and offered a place in the Alliance, but she rejected the offer without batting an eyelash. To her, nothing was more valuable than her freedom.
Snake charming is the practice of pretending to hypnotise a snake by playing an instrument called pungi. Although snakes are able to sense sound, they lack the outer ear that would enable them to hear the music. They follow the pungi that the "snake charmer" holds with their heads. The snake considers the person and pungi a threat and responds to it as if it were a predator. The most popular species are typically various kinds of cobras, though vipers and other types are also used.
From Spanish El Tren a translates as "a train to".
