Dark Elf (Race)
Appearance: Other than their pitch black skin, dark elves look a lot like their high elven nemeses, but they prefer light fabrics in darker colors. They live up to age 105, but the average life span is 80.
The dark elves loosened up after the Holocaust. They wish to avoid further conflict with the high elves and all other races. After befriending the dwarves, many settled down and began working to rebuild their lives to master the magic of Terah. Others set out for the New Continent in the hopes discovering new wonders and spreading their knowledge to any willing to listen. They find that their laid-back, flexible attitude makes them many friends among the other races, with the exception of the high elves, who are still frightened by them.
