Also known as the Silver elves, they are the most common of all the elven subraces, and as such are more tolerant of the others, especially humans, so it is no surprise many Moon Elves are ancestors of numerous half-elves in the world.

With green or blue eyes, and black, blue, or silvery white hair, they are impulsive, and extroverts, and they feel distaste towards isolation or complacency as they spread their own values by interacting with other races as much as they can.

Skilled in magic and arms but also music and art, their personalities perfectly match the desire of becoming an adventurer that so many of them have, and some achieve fame and get their names known, names like Marlevaur, Shaundyl, and Larongar.
