Auran was the language of the Elemental Plane of Air.[1] It was also known as Old Alzhedo, as the modern Alzhedo language spoken in Calimshan derived from it.[2]


Auran was a breathy, relaxed language that has been described as a slow exhaling of air.[1]

Derivative LanguagesEdit

Both Alzhedo and Midani derived from Auran.[2]


In addition to creatures native to the Plane of Air, Auran was sometimes spoken by Air genasi[3] and smoke drakes.[4]
