The Elves, the oldest and noblest of all races, come from the forests of southern Fiara. The magnificent trees of the Finon Mir provided protection against the powerful dragons, allowing these children of nature to prosper and live in relative peace under the roof of leaves. Elves grow tall, yet are of delicate stature, and their lifespan is much longer than that of other races. What they may lack in physical strength is more than compensated by their bravery and wisdom.
For as long as they can remember, the elves lives peacefully in their forests, but with the demise of the dragons came humans, and with them trade and war. In the end, the elves were forced to either fight or perish – and fight they did, earning themselves a reputation as feared warriors, better as friends than as foes. Today, the elves have allied with humans and dwarves in order to face the menace of the dark races.
None can match their prowess with the longbow and they have learned to use the magic of nature and ice. The mages of the Circle knew of the elvish talent for magic and their use in battle. Thus they created many runes to make use of their skills. Since the wars against the dark races and the time of the Circle, the elves have been living in different tribes all across Fiara.
The elves of the white tree of Finon Mir were living in a giant forest in the south of the continent of Fiara. Their culture was very developed but suffered huge casualties from the War of the Six Races and the Convocation. As a direct result, the elves of Finon Mir cut all ties to other races after the Convocation was over.
The elves always had a strict codex that not even all elves are able to follow. The Morhir were more free in terms of restrictions and were a wandering tribe of elves. Leafshade was one of their most often visited places known. Due to their culture as travelers, they had close relations to many races and even had connections to the dark races.
While all elves are part of the pact with the Frostweaver Aryn, there are elves that honor the pact with an extraordinary devotion: The Winterguard. Those elves are living in the area around the city of Tirganach. Due to their closer relationship to Aryn their skin has turned whiter than those of regular elves and their proficiency in ice magic has increased even more.
The elven rune armies consist of fighters based on the elves of Finon Mir. Said elves had high versatility and have quick fighting rune fighters such as Warders and Windarchers but also strong mages such as the Druids.
