Lithe and quick, the elves are an enigmatic race. Created by Drow chimeric magic as a servile race to tend the great Crystalthorn groves, they have a close link and understanding of plants and growth. Living somewhat longer than the other races, the elves have developed a unique niche within the empire, where many still tend the Crystalthorn groves, as they did when they lived under the rule of the Drow, whilst others have spread throughout the cities and farmlands of various regions. Small groups of elves have also spread beyond the borders of the empire, into The North-Eastern Labyrinths. These elves have abandoned many of the trappings of civilisation and form small nomadic bands which rome the wild forests of the region.

Physical Description:
Standing slightly shorter than humans or half-elves, elves have androgynous, slim and long-limbed, hairless bodies, with males and females standing an equal height. Indeed many among the other races find it difficult to identify the sex of the elves they meet. Elves have long pointed ears, thin angular features and pale skin. Their large almond-shaped eyes show only whites. Their hair tends towards shades of brown or autumnal reds and tends to be worn free-flowing and long. Elves of both sexes tend to dress in tight-fitting clothing with elaborate flowing decorations. Wild elves often decorate their skin with curling tattoos which echo the natural shapes of their environment.
