Once Dark Elves were like High Elves
and Wood Elves
. But then, they started using Dark Magic, and tried to start
a revolution to legalize their dark practices around 421 AEKE. For that, they were
banished to the shadows of the under world…. That is where things
Influenced by their new diet mainly consisting of mushrooms they ate underground, their skin colour
turned from white into something between blue-ish light grey and
purple-ish light grey. Influenced by their new surroundings, their
instincts became different. Due to the adaptation to the underground
life, they lost their talents in hunting and archery, and instead
gained talents in stealth and use of small arms like daggers.
Dark Elves can have black, gray or white (literally white) hair. It can be

their own societies in the underground world, namely, three clans.
Even though the descendants of the first banished Dark Elves are now
free to go to the surface, there is still a heavy prejudice against them, as
they have a stereotypical reputation of being thieves, assassins,
hitmen, bounty hunters, thugs, drug dealers, dark magicians and
necromancers, which warrants racial discrimination almost anywhere they try to find their fortune.
Until the age of 18, Dark Elves grow up with the same speed as Humans do. But after reaching the age of 18, it all slows down. A circa 100 years old Dark Elf is the equivalent of a 25 years old
human, as such, a circa 250 years old Dark Elf is the equivalent of a 40 years old
human, a circa 500 years old Dark Elf is the equivalent of a 64 years old
human, as well as a circa 800 years old Dark Elf is the equivalent of a 93 years old
human, and it goes on like that.
