Races: Elf

Elves are notable for their long lifespans inherited from their fairy ancestry, capable of reaching over a thousand years. Their main physical distinctions are their long pointy ears, slender bodies and facial features. Beyond simple appearances, elves retain a deep spiritual and physical connection to nature and magic, again stemming from their fairy origins. Many elven communities developed physical traits tied to the environment or magic they were raised in. Elven skin complexion ranges from ivory white to dark brown based on climate, with tinges or blushes of green, blue, or yellow depending on their surrounding environments. One branch of elves, called the Sei'anthyr on Celesia or more commonly "aquatic elves", experienced so many changes that they are considered a fully distinct people. Another distinct elf people are the Nui'anthyr, the dark elves, who trace their ancestry to a powerful Fairest of the Night.

Elves are believed to have descended from the Sidhe, the highest fairykind of Faerie just below the Fairest. It is recounted in myths and legends that these Sidhe clans were instrumental in the completion of Midgard the Prime Material plane, and upon seeing the fruits of their labour, many were drawn by the freedom and potential of growth they could achieve by fully transitioning their essences into the new realm and be reborn as its natives. These Sidhe knew that as fairies, they would be forever bound to the nature of Faerie, despite their great power and sense of self. Only by sacrificing that power and immortality by becoming Midgardian mortals could they have the chance to grow beyond what they started as. These Sidhe would call themselves "elf", a name derived from a primodrial Sylvan word for "new people".

Elves emerged fully formed in the early 2nd Age across a multitude of world throughout the Prime Material. On Celesia, they appeared after the rise of the sserassin and neraxin, and just before that of the humans and orcs. However, it is their otherworldly origins and not when they appeared, that classifies them as a 2nd-generation people of Celesia.

While more advanced in magic and crafting than humans and orcs, the elves of Celesia eventually fell into slavery under the sserassin and neraxin as all other primanoids. Despite their notable advantages, the elves were no match for the extreme cruelty and brutality of the serpent and spider folks. When the Cosmic Horrors arrived in the universe, the knowledge and magic of the elves proved vital to the resistance formed by the humans.

The elves seized upon the opportunity to regain their lost glory. Although the core of the resistance was driven by humankind, elven heroes rose up as significant leaders. When the Cosmic Horrors were driven or sealed away, elves stood along humans and dwarves as the new powers of Celesia at the beginning of the 3rd Age.

The elves went on to raise up their own kingdoms around the world. Their magic was vital in healing the world and restoring its life and beauty. During the early part of the 2nd Age, the elven superpowers got along well with their peers among the dwarves and humans, and they were collectively known as the Starlight Empires. So it persisted until the human magi of Xian nearly ruined the world once more with their ambitious follies.

Fortunately for the rest of the world, the cataclysm destroyed only Xian, but its aftershocks severely impacted everyone else. The elves and dwarves stepped in to save Celesia, gaining more power and influence in the wake of humanity's fall. Both peoples now held a wariness of human power, and worked to prevent them from creating new calamities. However, one clan went too far.

The Aerlonesti clan held enormous amounts of power and influence thanks to a long and honoured ancestry. Having a long history of grudges against humans and other peoples, when they rose to power, they influenced many to take more extreme measures to prevent non-elves from growing and to preserve the state of elven power. Arrogance and greed became more prevalent among the elves, and atrocities against other peoples were becoming more and more frequent.

While many elves followed the Aerlonesti's dark path, many others still went against them. These elves remembered their traditions of love and happiness, and of the common struggle and suffering they shared with other peoples. A great elven civil war, the Broken Song Wars, broke out across Celesia, with those seeking equal and propserous relations with other people on one side, and those seeking full elven dominance over the world on the other. It was during these wars that the Nightfall event occurred where the Nui'anthyr people rampaged across the world against all other elves under the dark spell of the Nightsinger. The Darklight Wars as they were known became another set of conflicts within the Broken Song Wars, and saw the near totality of dark elves being driven underground.

In a final bid to take control of the world, the Aerlonesti followed the same folly as the magi of Xian with their own elven twist. The powerful ritual spell they tried to enact backfired, instigating the great cataclysm they initially feared humans would commit. The destruction that ensued broke the world-spanning power of the elves and the dwarves, and ended the 2nd Age.

Elvendom would persist through the ages until modern times, but never more with the great unity they beheld at the height of the Starlight Empires. The elves have seen a great fall to power, but many elf nations still exist. They continue to share a strong common bond with each other, but these elven states grew to have their own distinct identities as well. Many are even thriving to this day, even when surrounded by brutal powers that seek their power and wealth. The elves of Celesia continue to play an influential role on the rest of the world, and they are not looking to leave any time soon.

In general, elves have a deep affinity for the natural environment and balance. Wherever they build, they do so with gentleness and patience, integrating their structures into the local ecosystem. They have also have a deep respect and understanding of magic, and are disdainful of those that wield it irresponsibly. Their long lifespans allow them to take their time to think before taking action, but they can as whimsical as the weather.

With the amount of time they have available to them, even the laziest of elves can attain great heights of power. Many elven elders and leaders are prone to being patronizing to outright arrogant to other shorter-lived peoples, though they do not make exception for younger elves either. The memory of humanity's first cataclysm has a long shadow over their attitude with them, only mitigated by the hsame of the cataclysm their own people committed. This attitude somewhat mars the general admiration of elven grace and artistry that other peoples have for them. That being said, elves are generally open to having good relations and experiences with other peoples that don't seek to harm them, and would enjoy a drink with a human or a dwarf just as much as with any other elf.
