Also known as Gold elves, they have bronze skin, golden blond, black, or red hair, and green eyes, and while they have a reputation for strength rather than endurance their arrogance leads to feeling superior to most other races, including other elves.

Sun elves are tenacious and organized, and rather than learning as they go they prefer to master something before applying it in true practice. Their deep respect for magic allows them to have some of the most powerful mages in the world.

While mostly keeping to themselves, those who decide to become an adventurer put all of their focus and dedication into this new life journey where some gain fame and notoriety, with names like Aramior Amafete, Theiria Durkiir, and Quaric Xiloru.

Araro Holirum

After failing the so-called weapon test two times, he went into the nearby mountains to seek isolation, solitude, and ultimately enlightenment.

Rolen Ridrua

After being one of the top wizards in the city’s academy, he suddenly resigned, never to be seen again by all but his closest friends, and even they would like it better if they didn’t meet. The truth is that he started dabbling into necromancy and other shunned or forbidden magic, and it has affected his mind to the point he often forgets what time it is or who he really is.

Rather than living in a city, she spends her time in the nearby forest, accompanied by her trusted pet wolf, where she communicates with other animals using potent nature magic.

Sarrynna Kerymstacia

Silent and agile as a cat, she moves in a way that makes most other elves seem stiff and “stuck in the mud”. Using her skills for good hasn’t brought her much financial success, and so recently she had to resort to more dirty and illegal jobs like burglary and stealing, though never killing.

While her work at the academy is more or less mundane, her latest research on some newly discovered ancient artifacts has proven to be the best time of her recent life, if not in general. The fact that she learns something on a daily basis, with this going on for a fortnight so far, has filled her with joy and happiness, and she’s always eager to continue the research.

At first, he couldn’t settle in a place for too long, so he mostly worked as a caravan guard but after a gnarly leg injury, he had to recover in a big city. When he healed up, he realized he liked the place and was already used to the life within the walls, and so he is now a member of the City Watch as one of the guards of a vault.

While his brothers were the ones to pick up a sword at the slightest opportunity, he was more into commerce, trading, and money-making, and it was no surprise that he eventually opened his own inn. It was always fancy but today, thanks to his hard work, it is one of the most sought establishments in the capital.

  • Aramior Durkiir

These bronze-skin elves condescendingly gaze down upon most other races, where their green eyes perfectly match their black, red, or golden-blond hair, and their strength, tenacity, and utter focus are some of the main traits the whole race possesses. Respecting and practicing magic, music is also in their blood, although they are not as gregarious as some of the other elven subraces. Think about where the character was born, what skills have they mastered so far, what are their future plans, and think of a name worthy of the superiority and advantage they believe they have over others.
