I am by no means a lore expert or the first person to see a race of people in the Guild Wars 2 beta called the Largos. But I did happen by an event in Snowden Drifts that involved one and I’m intrigued.
They have (it looks like) wings, are bent on deadly challenges, and disappear without a trace.
This is the only screenshot I was able to take at “The Kodan Claw” event. A “Largos Assassin” is trying to assassinate the military leader of the kodan village. From the dialogue it seems he’s doing it merely for the challenge. Upon helping the Claw and defeating the Largos, it curled itself up into a vortex and blipped seemingly out of existence. An ability I’m assuming is attributed to stealth, but I suppose I can’t rule out some form of teleport.
What intrigues me about the Largos is essentially that it’s an entirely new race. One we’ve heard nothing about officially. The only information we have comes from that one event in Snowden and a few NPCs commenting about largos nearby.
They actually kind of remind me of sylvari somehow, but seeing one up close you can see hair, knife-ears, and armour that doesn’t appear to be plant based. Initially the wings seem insectile, butterfly like. But somehow I don’t think that will be the case. It rings too much of fairies and elves.
A very enticing mystery for lore fans.
Here is the wiki page, which has little more to offer than the superior screenshot below.
