For me personally this Elite is a little out of place with the lore, but that's just my opinion.
This expansion could have been the opportunity to introduce scythes into the game and instead of some obscure singular legend(again my opinion), they could have made Legend of the Dervish (as a people or old profession, with a legend on a group instead of an individual).
It was an opportunity to in a way bring back an awesome profession without creating a new one.
Also considering how long Elona was isolated, this legend may have fit better with the lore.
Sometimes new new is good, but sometime new old is better.
But oh well
