Elves are one of the most common races found in the continents of Arkelon. As they have evolved to be different from one another, Elves can be found all-around the world, be it in cities, underground and even in forests. They have been brought to Arkelon at first a long time ago, from a distant planet. The first Elves species were the Dark Elves, but since, other subspecies have appeared.
As such, the three kinds of Elves tend to vary a lot in terms of habitations - and they rarely live together. Each subspecies stay in their group, without mixing with each other. However, most Elves groups tend to be sedentary, and very rarely nomads.
Their genes make them able to outlive most races of Arkelon by a long shot, but it is to the detriment of being more frail and prone to injuries than most. As such, most Elves share a common trait: they are annoyed with other races - seeing them as brash, too impulsive and too spontaneous. They make use of technology and some can be quite crafty with it, but even with that, they rarely share the same values and interests as other races that cohabit with them in the cities.
Forest Elves mostly live in natural areas, and their main city
is Erandel. A good majority of them nevertheless live in the
middle of forests, instead of in a large city. They are very
close to nature, and prefer to bask in it rather than be
miserable in a city. They still use their city as a hub for business,
and to greet tourists and ambassadors.
The Forest Elves are one of the creators of Druidism in Arkelon, teaching other races afterwards. Their council is still widely
sought after, and most are happy to take on apprentices.
As they live long lives, it is important for them to pass
their knowledge and wisdom to the next generations,
regardless of their origins.
They have adapted to modern society by creating brand
new environment-friendly technologies that do not make
use of arcana nor contribute to pollution.
