History

When the elven races diverged, the Dökkálfar travelled south to the swamps and jungles of Ecíos. Blessed with the dark they called themselves Dark Elves, and the new land they settled they called the Living Lands. The Dökkálfar were intrigued by the abundance of life within the swamps and soon started to experiment with biology when they settled in, this work caused their emerging culture to become very alien to most other races on Domus.

Interspecies Relations and Assumptions

They are viewed as alien causing many races to distrust them, while few races act aggressively towards them because of this, most will go out of their way to avoid them.
