Eldarya is an online Visual Novel created by BeeMoov, the same group behind My Candy Love. The player character is a young woman from our world (often called Guardian or Erika, but her name is whatever the player chooses for their username) that finds herself in a magic land after walking into a mushroom circle. Unable to return to her own world, she's forced to join one of the three basic Guards of El.

  • Shadow Guard: Responsible for exploration and information gathering. It's leader is Nevra.
  • Absynthe Guard: Responsible for alchemy and potion making. It's leader is Ezarel.
  • Obsidian Guard: Responsible for combat and weapons training. It's leader is Valkyon.
  • Light Guard: Responsible for administration and leadership. It's leader is Miiko. The player character cannot join this guild.

In addition to playing through the story, the player send their pet out exploring to collect new items to customize their avatar. There's a monthly contest between the three basic guards to determine which guild's members are the most active.

  • Apparently Human Merfolk: Alajea doesn't quite look human due to her fin ears, but she doesn't look different from the other residents of El and walks around on two legs due to a potion she takes.
  • Asleep for Days: Erika spends days asleep after her first mission to the Jade Coast. She'll be greeted by whichever main love interest the player has selected as their crush when she wakes up.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Valkyon and Leiftan.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Chrome is the youngest of the guard and acts like a brat sometimes.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: All the guards are associated with a different color. Dark Purple for shadow, green for Absynthe, red for Obsidian, and gold for Light.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Ezarel.
  • Decoy Damsel: Yvoni acts innocent and scared in order to trick Erika into breaking the seal on her tree.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: It's not considered a good idea to receive kick training from Jamon.
  • Familiar: The player can keep a cute animal companion that finds items for them when they go exploring.
  • Give Me Your Inventory Item: The player often has to collect different items to progress with the plot. Often these are gotten by going to the right screen or talking to the right person, but other times the items are standard inventory items such as food for your familiar.
  • Hates Small Talk: Valkyon doesn't usually talk unless there's something he wants to talk about. The player character comments that this makes it harder to get to know him.
  • Ironic Fear: Alajea is a mermaid, who is uncomfortable around water.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Various magical races are portaryed with animal ears, such as brownies, kitsunes and werewolves.
  • Misunderstood Loner with a Heart of Gold: Erika feels uneasy about Cryllis when she first meets him, and he does little to reassure her. He's acting as a guardian to the forest, even though the guard don't know it.

  • Onion Tears: If Erika is spending time with Nevra in episode 8, she makes him cut onions because of this.

  • The Quiet One: Jamon doesn't usually say a lot when he talks.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Valkyon's companion is a musarose (a cute mouse creature with a flower for a tail), which he dotes on with no shame whatsoever.
  • Relationship Values: The player has one with all the characters, although they can only date a few of them.
  • Soul Jar: Hamadryads die if anything happens to their tree.
  • Supreme Chef: Erika comes across as this, because no one else in Eldarya really knows how to cook.
  • Time-Passage Beard: Ezarel wears a fake one as part of a prank to convince Erika that she's been asleep for centuries.
  • Trapped in Another World
  • Vampires Are Sex Gods: Nevra certainly thinks he is. He's been quite a pain about it since hearing how popular vampires are as a result of Twilight's popularity.
  • Virtual Paper Doll: The player's avatar can be dressed in a wide array of clothes items, hair styles, and skin tones. The event illustrations will always show the default player though.
