Elves are immortal, living a life without end. These delicate and graceful beings are the elders of this world. Elves have close ties to nature and life. They love music, lore and dance, but are solitary beings, preferring to seek their pleasures far from the prying eyes of the world. When intruders come to their forests they seldom escape, and those who are taken from an Elven forest, after having dwelt among elves, often die of broken hearts and unspoken remorse.
In times past, Elves ruled all the lands, but they were generous with the lesser creatures and nurtured all life. Some say it was their downfall. Archons refer to the Elves as "The Firstlings," and preach that Elves serve to rejuvenate fallen worlds and prepare the way to a world of Magical Wonders. In their past, they welcomed the human race, and were betrayed. Such has been the source of much strife between the two races-and Elven memories are long.
Elves employ stealth, speed and cunning to strike their foes. They are masters of faerie magic, and readily gather the powers of magic instilling it in all that they touch.
