Half human/half elves are the most common hybrid seen in Scarterra
. In most human dominated lands they are commonly referred to as "half-elves" and in most elven dominant lands they are commonly referred to as "half-humans." Both full humans
and full elves
usually claim half elves look more like the other species than themselves.
Any human-elf sexual pairing can potentially create a half-elf. A pairing between an elf and always creates half-elf baby. A pairing between a human and half-elf usually
creates a human baby thought is rare but not unheard for a half-elf to be born. Half-elves that mate with other half-elves create half-elf babies. This is pretty common as many half-elves prefer to seek mates among those who can understand them.
It should be noted that half-grey elves, half-dark elves, and half-wood elves look pretty much the same. The differences are mainly cultural not physiological.
: Half-elves trying to assimilate with elven or human society tend to follow the religious practices of the dominant group nearest to them. Sometimes these half-elves overcompensate being some of the loudest and most zealous in their displays of piety.
Half-elves who revel in their outsider status tend to openly worship whichever of the Nine
are on the outs. Half-Elves who keep to themselves tend to be religious patrons based on their profession. Zarthus
is often viewed as the patron of half-breeds and is the state patron of Apseldia.
