Adam Ha-Rishon is the name of the first human being who lived in the world of Eretz.
The Milhamah lore about Adam is similar to the biblical account in Genesis, but being that “Milhamah” is a alternate linguistic world, it departs in a few ways. Adam was tasked by Ha-Shem to name all the creatures in the paradise of Gan ‘Eden, making him the first evaluator of all good names.
However, he lost his own good name when he ate from what he thought was the Semantic Tree, the Tree of Meaning, to gain a godlike comprehension of existence. However, not only did he disobey Ha-Shem, he erred and instead ate from the Syntax Tree.

A Ruaḥ (pl. Ruḥot) is a Kind (species) of wind spirit in the world of Avgad. When these spirits wish to take shape, they can concentrate themselves into the size of a wider human body, pallid in color, clothed in linens and featuring large cloudy eyes. Because the species name “Ruaḥ” is grammatically both masculine and feminine, these spirits may take on a mix of those characteristics depending on time or conditions.
Ruḥot float in the air and command wind speed or direction, often using large fans to erode targets or obstacles. They can distort their density and the space around them, which lets them diffuse into moire-like patterns or teleport.
They are often intelligent, courageous spirits with high morale, and they run the gamut between good and evil. Good ones smell like basil and bring relief and profit to people wherever they go. Evil ones take on a greenish tint, stink like rotting wood, and spread an ill wind of decay.
Ruḥot like to settle on high mountaintops to be closer to the skies. Over there, they form communities of obelisk-style buildings and run profitable businesses selling stone. Other societies often envy and accuse Ruḥot of being too successful by using air and space powers to their unfair advantage.
The species comes from the רוח shoresh root and its broader family, which deals with wind, spirits, paleness, linens, space, profit and more.
Amirah Meimrah is a mysterious foreign leader from the treetop summit of Emirut. Based on the אמר shoresh root and family, she has exceptional sonic speech powers. She can emit fire and even sublimate her body into vapor. She carries a knife and a treetop martial arts staff, though nobody has seen her use them in combat. The nations proclaim Meimrah to be a noble peacemaker. With a tall frame and ladylike demeanor, she is a bold orator who inspires many to sacrifice for the greater good. But a few critics say that she — behind the scenes — is rebellious, defiled and an arrogant, condescending snob. Will she prove herself a messiah who can end a global war… or leave things a mess?
