Dark elves have found their way into many different worlds and stories, and while there are many iterations of their kind, they are mostly depicted as being slender, with dark skin and white hair, and their affinity for magic and fighting is notorious.

These long-living elves have often been accused of being cruel, proud, selfish, and clannish to the point where they seldom welcome any outsiders, and even those who are allowed to pass find themselves feeling uneasy while within their community.

The various deeds done by the hands of the Dark elves have been described as nothing short of gruesome and horrific, and some of them made certain members of their race known, with names like Qhobucne Madeec and Phomushi Phangeren.
