Little child-like folks who lives in the forest. They live a simple life made of pranks, magic and musics. Magic comes naturaly to them, and they use it to pull pranks on other feyfolk or on humans. They also use their magic to hide from the more dangerous creatures of the forest, such as ogre or goblin.


Elves are edonistic creatures, they love to play games and listen to music, but despite their apparent lazyness, they are proud and can become very serious in an instant if the situation is grave.
