During the great war, the powerful members of the Trispire teleported a large chunk of the city of Lucera to somewhere safe. The city landed in the south of Lake Paupiligon. The High Elf populace soon was embraced by the local Elf population. after years of mixing genetics, a large population of "Amalgam Elves" now exists. Most are very lost about their goals in life. Conflicting genetics and conflicting heritages lead to a race of wanderers and misanthropes. Some seek to start a great trek East to reclaim their High Elven homeland, others seek to go West and move away from encroaching Human settlement. A third faction seeks to continue to live in the area around Lake Paupiligon.

Male beauty standards are based on Wood elf looks. Dark complexion, Earthen tones, and furs. Female beauty standards are based on High elf culture. Pale complexion, Flowing gowns, and ornate silvered jewelry.
Genders are seen as equals, as the female-dominated Wood elf culture mixed with the male-dominated culture of the high elves. despite a turbulent start, both sides have met in the middle.
Hilariously, each gender's own beauty standards result in confusion about the other genders. Males are expected to craft or find beautiful High Elf styled jewelry, or clothes to gift to a female. While females are expected to gift hunting weapons, and fur based clothes in Wood elf style.
In the end, Western Elf couples are life bonds made before the age of 40. The relationship is that of hunting partners and intellectual peers in a great library.
