There are many subspecies, but a typical elf stands around 5’8” tall and weighs about 150 pounds. Their slender form hides their true strength, and their joy and anger come as quickly as they go.

Their natural agility and dexterity allows them to move quickly and without much trouble, even in rough terrain. They excel at archery, while magic comes naturally to them. Living over 700 years, they are considered adults when they reach 110 years.

They are rational thinkers, preferring cautiousness and planning to rash actions. Once they do commit to something, they are dedicated and tenacious, putting a great deal of care into it. The optimal result is what is always strived for.
