Elves average 5’5" feet tall and typically weigh just over 100 pounds. They live on fruits and grains, though they occasionally hunt for fresh meat. They have either silver hair and amber eyes or pale golden hair and platinum eyes. They prefer clothing of white, silver, yellow, or gold, with cloaks of deep blue or purple.

Elves speak Elven, and most also know one of Human languages and Sylvan.

Elves are cautious warriors and take time to analyze their opponents and the location of the fight if at all possible, maximizing their advantage by using ambushes, snipers, and camouflage. They prefer to fire from cover and retreat before they are found, repeating this maneuver until all of their enemies are dead.

They prefer longbows, shortbows, rapiers, and longswords. In melee, elves are graceful and deadly, using complex maneuvers that are beautiful to observe. Their wizards often use sleep spells during combat because these won’t affect other elves.
