High Elf (Race)
Appearance: The high elves are a tall, slender race with pale skin and long, pointed ears. They favor clothing made from thick materials dyed with deep, bold colors. High elves can live to be 100, but the average life span is 75 years.
After the high elves were driven back into Therfass they isolated themselves for two decades while they worked to improve their infrastructure. When they finally opened their gates to the world again they discovered that the other races had taken what the high elves had shown them and advanced beyond far it. This unnerved them and caused many to prefer to stay within Therfass, hiring traders from other nations to organize trade routes for them. Of the high elves who do venture out into the world beyond Therfass there are two general groups. There are those who are believe that the other races owe them for everything they’ve given them and they flaunt their arrogance wherever they go, expecting superior treatment from others. The other group realizes that, not too long ago, they had ruled these people and had managed to aggravate them enough for them to unite to throw them out. They know that almost every person they meet has a reason to kill them so they tend to be very polite and walk with an air of caution mixed with a slight aura of insignificance.
