Blood Elves[edit]

These tall, slender elves are similar to their high elf brethren but have pinkish-red skin and a staunch, outspoken devotion to the cause they champion. Blood elves are distinct from the rest of their kind in thanks to their bloodline being laced with arcane power. Additionally, while they lack excepional wild beauty the features of the blood elves are distinctly intensified, with deeply-colored hair and piercing eyes, and the agile build able to match any of their kin.

Physical Description[edit]

Most are tall around 5'11" to 6'4", and have skin with a light shade of red to it and long swept back ears. They have bright shining green eyes and a permanent inquisitive brow. They have long, slender arms and legs and move with the ethereal grace reminiscent of most elf-kind and lush, saturated hair of several varieties.


Blood elves typically only lean in favor of partnership when cooperating with other elves, but will work with other races if it helps to carry out their own objectives. They are a reserved people and are not quick to make friends or allies, some so far as to carry prejudices against their own 'blood-mixed' kin. This stubborness is two-fold, however, and Blood Elves who actually manage to acquire genuine comrades are fiercely loyal, even under the worst of circumstances.


Blood elves live their lives with heartfelt conviction for any cause or ideal, and thus can be of any alignment, provided they are chaotic or lawful. The ideas of passivity or indecisiveness is greatly frowned upon, and therefore it is nearly impossible to find a neutral Blood elf.


Blood Elves generally live in tropical forests, in small kingdoms called Mei-Tem, with one central council representing the kingdoms and establishing foreign policies.


Blood Elves worship a variety of deities but generally worship nature gods such as Obad-Hai, Corellon, and Ehlonna.


All Blood Elves speak Elven and Common, and many will know draconic and celestial/infernal depending on their alignment. Blood Elves of arcane classes (Wizard, Sorcerer, etc.) may know languages of creatures they summon such as Igan or Terran for elementals.


The name system is much like humans, a first name which can be any, and the last name of the father. Examples: Elephon Vennan, Kharis Thefaren, Dyffros Glynpeiros, Paeris Kelsys, Theoden Yinpetor, etc.
