For the Stone Colossus Monster, see Flora.

The Flora (KR:Hangul: 레프 romaja: Repeu lit. Lef) are one of the three major races of Grandis out of many races. It is also the race with the largest population. There are two sub-species of Flora; the High Flora (KR:Hangul: 하이레프 romaja: Hai repeu lit. High Lef) and the Verdant Flora (KR:Hangul: 우든레프 romaja: Woodeun repeu lit. Wooden Lef). Long ago, the Flora were one people with brillant red wings that channeled mana through the mytocrystals embedded on the back of their hands. They were a caste-based society ruled by the God-King, with Gods, Priests, and the magic-less commoners below him. In KoreaMS, the Flora are known as the Lef. Their motifs are Elves (Elf) because they have a very long lifespan, sharp ears, and the race name itself is elf's anagram. The division between the High Flora and the Verdant Flora are also derived from dividing the Elves into High Elves (High Elf) and Wooden Elves (Wooden Elf) in some works. The nature-friendly aspect of the elf's image appears to be the Maple World's elf, and the image of high-tech ancient empire appears to be the Grandis' Flora.

The last God-King ruled from his palace and was protected by the Knights of the Einherjar. Once a benevolent man, he exhibited a sudden transformation a few years into his rule and incited a war against the other races of Grandis, believing the Flora to be superior. A faction within the Flora entreated him to stop his conquest. But when it was revealed that these Flora planned to share magic with the commoners, the God-King accused them of treason. They had their magic wings torn out, thus cutting them off from wielding magic, and were exiled. They became known as the Verdant Flora, while the ruling faction renamed themselves the High Flora. Despite their exile, the Verdant Flora learned to combine machinery with crystal magic and gained mechanical wings that glowed blue. This discovery was attributed to the former God of the Verdant Flora, who would be known to history as the Ancient Master. The Ancient Master also created a relic known as the Elder Crystal, which held powerful magic for the one chosen to wield it. The Verdant Flora would eventually establish their capital city of Aboris.

Meanwhile, dissent grew within the Knights of the Einherjar as the God-King planned moved into open warfare against the other races of Grandis. One of the God-King's most loyal knights, Adelaide, struggled to reconcile her oath to the God-King with her own morality in participating in an unjust war. When she told the God-King that she could not follow him into battle, he ordered her arrest and threw her into prison. Soon after, the Verdant Flora learned that the God-King's son, Prince Gerand Darmoor, was planning to assassinate his father. Darmoor capitalized on the doubts of his father's knights and proposed that they aid him in killing the God-King, thus stopping his unjust war. These knights attempted to free Adele from her cell, but when she learned that they planned to kill her lord, she cut them down and rushed to his side. At the same time, the Verdant Flora rushed to the High Flora capital, where they encountered the God-King's corpse lying at the feet of Darmoor. Meanwhile, Adele led the knights loyal to the God-King in batle, but was ultimately left standing alone. For her alleged treason against the new God-King, Darmoor, Adele was banished into the Void by her former sister-in-arms, Veronica.

Darmoor accused the Verdant Flora of killing the God-King, thus sparking the Flora Civil War. During the war, Darmoor was known to have made speeches to young High Floras in order to convince them to draft in the military. Ark and Albaire were two High Floras who were inspired by Darmoor to enlist in military school. Darmoor continued his father's war of conquest, targeting not only the Verdant Flora, but also the other races of Grandis. The bloody conflict lasted for hundreds of years, with great casualties on both sides. This conflict reached its peak in the final battle at Aboris, which resulted in death on such a large scale that Gerand Darmoor awoke as the Transcendent of Life. With his new powers, he laid waste to the battlefield and killed nearly every participant in the battle, including the Ancient Master. His disciple, Agate, managed to escape with the Elder Crystal and took the remaining Verdant Flora into hiding. After sacking Aboris, Darmoor invaded the Chronica Sanctuary and attempted to convince Chronica, the Transcendent of Time, to join him. Unable to come to a resolution, Darmoor stole Chronica's powers. His use of the stolen powers of a Transcendent came with consequences, however, and Darmoor was severely weakened as a result. Additionally, it resulted in a warp in space-time, causing several Interdimensional Portals to open in Grandis that led to other worlds. It was rumored that Darmoor had used one of the portals in order to travel to a different world. During this time, he also came into contact with the exiled Nova Magnus, who pledged his loyalty to Darmoor after witnessing his power as the embodiment of death itself. Magnus would eventually sack Heliseum, resulting in the former Kaiser's death.

At the end of the Flora Civil War, Darmoor moved the High Flora capital to Aboris, the former capital of the Verdant Flora, and ruled from the new God-King Temple with his Apostles. Meanwhile, the surviving Verdant Flora were led by Agate to a pocket dimension called Sanctuary. There, Agate became the Headmistress of the Crystal Academy, where she would oversee the training of future generations of Verdant Flora. Over the next few decades, Darmoor continued to lead the High Flora from behind the scenes as he recovered from using Chronica's powers. Though the High Flora army was exhausted and depleted from the Flora Civil War, Darmoor continued to push them to breaking point in an attempt to conquer all of Grandis. He also made use of third-party organizations such as the Angler Company and the Shadowdealers to gain extra footing.

In present day, the High Flora discovered the Verdant Flora Sanctuary due to the betrayal of Darius, resulting in the near-annihilation of the Verdant Flora. Thanks to the sacrifice of Agate, her disciple Illium and a handful of other children managed to escape with the Elder Crystal. Illium, along with several other Flora, would eventually join the Nova and Anima in uniting with the Maple Alliance, which aimed to defeat both the Black Mage and Gerand Darmoor. With the Alliance's support, the Nova were able to liberate Heliseum. After the defeat of the Black Mage, the Alliance officially began their operation to fight Darmoor, resulting in the events at Cernium and Hotel Arcus.
