Wyld Elves are the accursed Elvenkyne bound by madness to The Wyld and its woeful Wyldqueen. They are feared and loathed across Haven as the willful servants of Narti who have worked against sophontic life on Solith since their inception. These Wyld Elves serve as the heart of Narti's Brood and act as her will made manifest in their brutal war against the fortress-city of Wyldkeep and the Briar Elves within. The mutual hatred shared between these two Elvenkyne rivals even that of the First Men and the Udirkith, as their mortal enemy works tirelessly to thwart any attempt to leave the cursed jungle. These Elves may share many similarities with their woodland kin, but their madness has now warped them into savage monsters. Detestable creatures whose feral nature alienates them from civilization as they kill for both simple pleasure and the taste of fresh meat.
Wyld Elf History
The Wyld Elves' history begins with the rise of Narti as the dreaded Wyldqueen, during the final desperate years of the Briar Elves' exodus. In these gruesome years, thousands of Elves perished as Narti turned the full force of The Wyld against those who would not bow in an effort to eradicate from Solith. The Elves who did not escape the Wyldqueen'sattempted genocide were enslaved by The Wyld's maddening influence, as it twisted and broke the minds of even their most willful souls. These maddened savages wield all the ferocity of a wild beast honed by the sharp intellect of their shattered sophontic minds, thus forging an apex predator chosen by the Wyldqueen herself.
In Narti's name, the Wyld Elves organized countless assaults against Wyldkeep, in an effort to spread their cursed jungles influence. Their threat became so dire in the years before The Fall that they represented the greatest threat to all life in Haven. In the wake of The Rebirth of Lady Death and Narti's retreat back into The Wyld, these Elves have all but ceased their border raids. While the defenders of Wyldkeep wait with bated breath, preparing for their inevitable invasion.

The Wyld Elves have some of the most straightforward names on Solith, with each Elf taking the name of their favorite method of slaughter. Though many may share the same name, their scarifications and eerie ability to tell each other apart allows them to recognize one another even in the heat of battle. Thus Wyld Elves often only use their names as battle cries, roaring them out with zeal as they surge from the undergrowth during their terrifying twilight onslaughts.
