Elves

Elves are creatures of legend and myth. They tend to be tall and slender, with pointed ears and a fairer appearance than that of a human. Historians speculate that the word 'elf' was used to demonise a particular race or cultural group of people that lived secluded from mainstream human societies. However, aside from the physical description of these creatures, peoples of their associated culture can be evidenced.
