History

When the elven races diverged, the Ljósálfar travelled north to encompass parts of both the taiga and desert of Ecíos. Blessed with the light they called themselves Light Elves, and the new land they settled they called Elven Pride. The Ljósálfar quickly started to build grand cities all over their new land, along the coasts and deep within the desert and forests. While the varying geography of their land separated their culture a bit, they ultimately remain a very united people.

Interspecies Relations and Assumptions

While they don't necessarily look down upon other races, they do hold themselves higher than even their fellow elves. Some races see them as snobbish; however, most do not care since they are known for their manners and hospitality.
