2. Brief History

Wood Elves are a variety of elf that thrive in woodland areas. Elves were despised and hunted down by the dark god of greed, Zodo, and thus there numbers are flaunting. The wood elf, however, escaped much of this and remains in good numbers. This is mainly because of their exceptional survival, hiding, and tracking skills.

conditions, and keen hearing that allows them to hear the slightest whisper. Their disadvantages are more related to their customs and behavior. Wood Elves suffer from extreme xenophobia.

4. Lifespan

Elves have three stages of life. The first stage, childhood, last from birth until 14. During this stage the young elf grows and develops its many skills needed for survival, though just a tad slower at developing than a human. The young elf stays at home during this stage.

The second stage, becomance, last from 15 until 25. During this stage the elf leaves his parents and lives with relatives. This is their adolescence, when they develop into young men or women.

The final stage, adulthood, last from 26 until death. During this stage the elf must first become accepted into the elfin culture, which varies from tribe to tribe, and then is allowed to live on his or her own. It is also during this stage that an elf may find a spouse. According to elfish law, the female must persuade her love to court her. After which it is up to the male to marry her. Elves never seem to change much during their adult hood until they reach around 350 to 400 years old. Then they begin to age quickly and look elderly. Death comes naturally and expectantly to the elves.

 

5. Appearance

Wood elves are tall and skinny. Their skin is lightly tanned, and have ears that measure to be about 3” long. Their hair color is either blond or brown, and eye color is green.

 

6. Living Habitat

Wood elves live in forests and woodland areas and it is uncommon for a wood elf to travel.

 

7. Food & Sleeping Requirements

Elves require 3 meals a day consisting of fruits, vegetables, fungus, small fowl and woodland creature, and water. They must sleep a full night’s cycle every night or suffer from fatigue (-5 from endurance per missed hour).

 

8. Culture

Wood Elves typically keep to themselves and have the mentality of tribe over family, self, or nation. Most wood elf settlements are single clan settlements. They are also very fundamental with their believes. Wood elves celebrate the changes of the seasons, personal victories, birthdays, and tribal celebrations.

Wood Elves do not use last names. Instead, when referring to themselves, they will often give you their first name followed by “son of” and their father's name. First names typically reflect nature in some way or form.

 

9. Racial Relations

Wood Elves suffer from severe xenophobia, but notably their xenophobia is not as bad as that of their ascian brothers. For this reason, wood elves only get along with other elf races except the dark elf, frontier humans whom they view as being elf-like, beast men and anthropoids for their similar love of nature, and races of lore.
