While most elves wouldn’t be considered Quenyan, even by themselves. The truth is that many elves alive today share this ancient bloodline, from a time when the same-named language was also spoken, a time when the future seemed different.

Graceful and honorable but merciless when needed, they do their best to keep a relatively unified society, where hierarchy and elders are respected, a word is kept, and business dealings are done as honorable as the situation they are in allows.

Their love for the unknown and the knowledge that can be gained is plain to see, and many often turn to adventure, traveling to other places where their names might become known, names such as Raimion, Lávartiel, Canwien, and Tellumaner.
