The Empire of Light
Renowned for their grace, intelligence and exotic appearance, but infertile, half-elves are only ever the result of unions between Humans and Elves. The vast majority of Half-elves are bred in the slave holdings of the Empire and sold as slaves, or as the mainstay of the imperial bureaucracy, however a few are the result of amorous couplings of free elves and humans. The physical attractiveness of Half-elves, their natural gracefulness and their infertility has lead to half-elves being considered as wanton hedonists by many within the empire and has resulted in their popularity as slaves by brothel owners. Whilst their position within the imperial bureaucracy has given them a reputation as manipulative schemers and consummate politicians.

Half-elves stand a little shorter than most humans, with males being on average slightly taller than females. Both male and females have little body hair, but tend to have long, thick hair on their heads, and have somewhat feminised features. Males may often seem androgynous to humans, whilst females seem hyper-feminine and alluring. Half-elves share the long pointed ears of their elven ancestors, whilst their eyes tend to be larger than those of humans and are often tinted with shades of purple, pink or yellow. Half-elves dress in local fashions, but tend to favour more revealing clothing than the humans they live among.
