Night Elves, or Kaldorei as they call themselves, were the first race to awake in Azeroth. After the war with the Burning Legion, they went to millennials-long seclusion. Today, they have appeared once again and are part of the Alliance.

Nocturnal by nature, honorable, and just, they are still wary and distrusting of those who they deem “lesser races”. Still, they are likely to help and in fact like helping others. However, sometimes they do seem a bit overconfident.

Night Elves worship the Moon Goddess Elune and work together and individually on protecting their homelands and nature in general. Some good examples of night elf names are E’thaes Duskrunner, Shanyssa Windarrow, and Eynyssea Forestwatcher.
