HRu hule huli! I've placed you in Arbis, the wood element. With the motto Go Deep ~ Reach High ~ Be fruitful, Arbins tend to be highly intelligent and analytical with a keen sense of practicality. They are good at problem-solving and tend to have dry humor. While they enjoy time with friends and family, for balance, they need to make time to be alone as well. 

The following is an element overview pulled from the pages of the Piddlypedia welcome circular given recruits at the commencement of their Appraisement Cycle.
