The House of Waffel-Paine is an imperial and royal house established in 1509 AN, and is the current ruling dynasty in Elwynn, Natopia, and Shireroth. The house is heavily linked to Elwynn's history. Its founder, Nathan Dariolin, ruled Elwynn twice, first as Duke (c1552-1555), and later, as Prince (1586-1589). As Prince, Nathan married Shireroth's then Kaiser, Ayreon II (Elijah), and their child, Nathaniel, served as Prince of Elwynn too (1604-1618, pretender 1607-1618) and emperor of Natopia. The Founder's cousin, Lord Erion, was Elwynn's president 1570-1573 and served in various positions in the Elwynnese government. The pretender Ruler of Elwynn, King Thorstein Noah Hallbjörns- og Esthersson, was a member of the House of Waffel-Paine, until expelled in 1665.

The name Waffel comes from the Sin'felo elf clan of the Phoenix Forest, the Founder's oldest known maternal ancestors. In order to Natopianize the name for easier assimilation in Germanic Ziegeland, Nathan's homeland, Sin'felo was changed to von 'Fel and eventually became Waffel. The Founder's paternal family is native to Yellow Island, serving as shepherds in the countryside. Therefore Paine was chosen to indicate the humble, outlying, pastoral origins of the Founder. The name combines ancient mysterious foreign origins and humble native roots. The name may be pronounced "Va-fell-pain" or "Waffle-pain" depending on the speaker's preference. Both pronunciations carry the same tone of respect.
