Elves are the naturalists of the world. They are highly in tune with nature and the elements and feel most at home in the forest. Elves are natives of the Manikhar continent, though no longer it’s most populous race. Elves are most populous in the Dwarven kingdom of Barastovar where they are slave race. However, the free elf population of Yuan-Karth is quickly growing to rival that of Barastovar. Elves are also found to a lesser degree within the merchant ranks of Pirynna and with the snow elves of Yskilian.
Elves tend to worship Aitheoir by venerating and celebrating the natural world. Elves don’t take to complicated rituals and ceremonies, instead preferring honest reverence and respect for the nature.
The Elven language is very fluid and soft, built on words that sounds almost musical when uttered together. This developed during the elves forest dwelling time and made it so that as elven rangers called to one another their voices would sound like whispered, musical echoes that would not betray their position in the forest. This led many travelers to refer to their language as “Elf Song.”
The Elven alphabet id based on thin/narrow characters with a lot of stylized elements like curls. The characters would also feature various fringe elements on each character (small dots and such added along the edges of the letter or within the curls) that change based on a variety of factors such as the position of the letter within the word, its position relative to other characters, or the overall meaning of the word (for example the difference between the past and future tense might be nothing more than the fringe on certain letters). This same script would also be used for writing any magical seals. This alphabet is used by both Elves and Eladrin, though many elves have adopted the language native to either the Dwarves or the Humans based on where they live and only use formal Elven writing for magic and formal events.
