Elves are slender, athletic folk a hair shorter than humans. They have the same range of complexions as humans, tending more toward tan or brown hues. A typical elf ’s hair color is dark brown, autumn orange, mossy green, or deep gold. Elven ears are long and pointed (but not as much as an eladrin or drow), while an elf ’s eyes are vibrant blue, violet, or green. Elves favor a wild and loose look to their hair.

Elves mature at about the same rate as humans, but they show few effects of age past adulthood. The first sign of an elf ’s advancing age is typically a change in hair usually darkening or taking on more autumnal hues. Most elves live to be well over four hundred years old and remain vigorous almost to the end.

Like their cousins, the Eladrin, the elves are split; the majority of their race living in the Fey Wild and just a miniscule amount of them in Joroin. Unlike their cousins, the elves seem to be growing in population, albeit at a very slow rate. Also unlike their cousins they do not hold the hatred for the drow that the eladrin do, being much more forgiving for mistakes made in the past and have a greater willingness to help them prove they are not the race of centuries ago.
