Silver Elves[edit]


Silver Elves are typically paranoid, and antisocial, often finding themselves remaining silent unless spoken to, if for no reason other than to prevent embarrassment. They typically stammer when speaking any language other than Elven, and find it especially difficult to adopt foreign cultural customs.

Physical Description[edit]

The Silver Elves are tall, pale and frail, looking almost skeletal in appearance. They are all albino, with red-pink pupils and silver-white hair, typically covering themselves in dark masks and robes in public to both hide and protect their frail skin from sunburns.


The Silver Elves as a whole are not typically social, and as such find themselves in secluded areas like mansions and laboratories. The Silver Elves no longer have an empire of their own after the last was destroyed, and now typically live under the employ of other races, working in libraries, research, and the like.


Silver Elves can be of any alignment, though they typically lean towards lawfulness, since their philosophies tend to be very studious and disciplined.


The Silver Elves were worshipers of the Undying Court back when they had an empire, but now most tend to share the the gods of their neighbors, or deny them altogether in favor of the arcane or technological.
