Elves embody grace, wisdom, and an eternal connection with nature. Standing tall and slender, they possess a captivating beauty, with luminous, almond-shaped eyes that shimmer like precious gemstones in shades of emerald, sapphire, or amethyst.

Elves are renowned for their mastery of the arcane arts, their minds a treasury of ancient knowledge and secrets.
