Elves are a race of ethereal beauty and unearthly grace, who appear hauntingly beautiful to humans and members of many other races. Their most noticeable physical traits are their sharp features and pointed ears. They range from about 150 to a little over 180 centimeters tall, and have slender builds and lithe forms. Because of their slender and lithe forms, an adult elf weighs between 40 and 60 kilograms. Height and weight do not different between male and female elves.
Growth Rate & Stages
Elves reach physical maturity at the age of 20 and intellectual maturity at 100, and can live up to 1000 years. Since elves age slower than humans, every 100 years after their 20th year, they will physically age about 16 years.
Their ideas and notions of adulthood vary widely from humans, with the elves having two types of maturity: Tor'belas; and Tar'alyr. Tor'belas (pronounced: tor-bel-lahs) refers to physical maturity, the age at which an elf is fully grown, into biological adulthood. And Tar'alyr (pronounced: tar-al-lir) refers to intellectual maturity, the age at which an elf has thoroughly studied and learned the intricate aspects of the world, enough so that they may be considered adults.
Ecology and Habitats
Like humans, elves can survive in almost any environment and climate, but their favored habitat depends on the subrace of the elf.
Elves have no facial or body hair.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Elves have excellent hearing and eyesight.
