Wild elves are a wild untamed race. They have a strong love of combat, and those unfortunate enough to find themselves locked in combat with a wild elf rarely escape unscathed.
Wild elves are very similar in appearance to elves. However, they are taller and more heavily built, and they have a rough edge to their voice and appearance. Unlike elves, wild elves are not graceful in the slightest, though they are by no means clumsy.
Wild elves often act more like half-orcs than elves. They are up-front, and like half-orcs, they rarely care about others emotions. They enjoy simple pleasures such as racing, wrestling, and eating. They have a strong love of combat and often go looking for a fight; therefore, they usually act without ever thinking. they often rely on their instincts, more so than their wits. They have different views of different races. they dislike the 'little ones,' dwarves, gnomes, and halflings. They also often show disfavor towards Eladrin, seeing them as cowards. They don't understand the dragonborn concept of honor, and rarely think much of dragon born. Wild elves get along very well with humans, half-elves, minotaurs, elves, goliaths, and shifters. Surprisingly, they get along well with half-orcs.
