Located within a valley on the ocean floor, the village of Eldfur was once the home to a peaceful and rather advanced civilization. Then, the Bugala came. Possibly following some migratory trail, the oceanic leviathan returned to Eldfur once each year, leaving devastation and despair in it's wake. Each year the Eldfur army would repel the Bugala, always suffering heavy casualties. With less populace to tend to the fields or repair the village's infrastructure, Eldfur fell into ruin. The valley's once lush vegetation died off.
The King of Eldfur once instructed the last few remaining warriors, in Eldfur's army, to enlist the aid of a champion, one who might end the threat of the Bugala, once and for all. A raiding party abducted the young aquatic hero, Aqualad, for this purpose. Though Aqualad showed his combat mettle, against the greatest warrior Eldfur still possessed, the youth proved a poor match for the Bugala. Only through the intervention and assistance of his mentor, Aquaman, was Aqualad able to even survive his battle with the Bugala, let alone drive it off. Though grateful, the men of Eldfur knew the Bugala would return the next year. It is unknown if the Eldfur colony survived the following year's encounter with the Bugala. No further mention has been made of the colony, nor the few remaining colonists. Their likely fate is a grim one.
The Eldfur are biped humanoids. Unlike Atlanteans, or the Maarzon tribesman, the Eldfur, in appearance, are decidedly more ichthyic. Hairless, their bodies are covered in violet scales, with a ridged fin running down the center of their skulls. Like Atlantis, the government system of Eldfur is a monarchy.
