Descended from survivors of the Great Wars who had developed into their own race.

There were many battles between the Gnomes and Humans. They fought over land rights and the battles hurt both sides.

Fought in the Border Wars against the Dwarves for possession of the Anar Forest.

Scattered and beaten after the fall of the Warlock Lord.

The Wishsong of Shannara

Enslaved again by dark magic and the Mord Wraiths, and under their influence the Border Wars started up again. The dark magic gave them a strength they would not have had and they were able to drive the Dwarves south.
