The only elven survivor of the Calamity that destroyed the Earth Dragon's original world. Ébano is a wolf-elf, and awakes hopelessly lost within the Earth Dragon's innards after the destruction, finding himself with only his friend Amadeus and his tar-horse, Charko, for company. Ébano must not only grapple with the terrible losses that become evident as he gains his bearings, but also with the fact that all of them appear to have lost their mortality —an awful prospect given their circumstances.

Ébano's outward appearance is peculiar in that his hair has life of its own. It slithers and curls itself back and forth depending on his mood. His exact age is not known, but he shows the appearance of someone in his mid twenties; however, perhaps as a result of the Calamity, his hair has prematurely grayed somewhat.
