An ancient native race of Teyrnas, they are akin to the Sidhe though not of the Sidhe.
There was once one race of elves but after the war 600 years ago they split into two distinct groups of elves.
Light Elves and Dark Elves.
The Dark Elves are short, the males average height is 5'7" and their average weight is 132 lbs. The average height for a female Dark Elf is 5'4" and their average weight is 109 lbs.
Dark Elves live in Nemglam forest in the country of Dal Ria-da on the continent of Rhydaman.
The clothing the Dark Elves wear are made from spider silk which generally are in bright hues unless they don't want to be seen, then the clothing is wrapped under a cloak that blends with the surrounding area. The clothing consists for men breeches and tunics, somtimes they may wear breeches which come just below the knee with knee high leather boots. For the female Dark Elf they mainly wear tunics and breeches, somtimes they wear skirts and tunics.
The Dark Elves live in extended family groups, though once these family groups were of the nobility.
Because the Dark Elves are of the Fey folk, they cannot weild or wear weapons and armour of iron or iron's warmer cousin steel as this will cause great pain. Wounds made from iron weapons take longer to heal if they heal at all.
