The Eleint were an ancient and powerful race of dragons. They possessed more than one heart.
Long before the rise of human empires, the Hold of Starvald Demelain, home realm of the dragons, was cut off from the rest of the Holds and realms by an elite group of Tiste Andii under Anomander Rake's orders. A few dragons were left to wander the Holds and human realm when the Elder God K'rul struck a deal with them. He proposed that each should take upon themselves a certain aspect of a new type of magic. These aspects would manifest as Warrens, a new, more ordered kind of magic. It should be noted that it isn't clear what K'rul offered the dragons in return.
After this aspecting, many of the dragons were hunted down and chained, as killing them would cause the magic in the Warrens aspected to them to disappear. In addition, one dragon, Korabas, was Otataral aspected, a necessary ingredient in order to counterbalance the appearance of this new magic.

Beak observed that Stormy and Gesler were "reforged in the fires of Tellann". He then went on to say: "Telas, Kurald Liosan, the fires, the ones dragons fly through to gain immunities and other proofs against magic and worse".
