Humans are the most numerous race on the continent and even beyond. While not as brilliant with metals as the dwarves and not as ancient as the elves they go toe to toe with both races due to there sheer numbers and there ingenuity. Humans build the largest cities on the continent and have made many of the advancements in settlements that the entire continent now enjoy.
Humans are also of the 3 founder races, and therefore hold a seat on the Elder Council. Though they hold this seat they are often ignored by the other two races due to been so short lived. The other races see them as been to hasty and short sighted.
