Born of the union between elves (mainly Wood Elves) and humans, Half-Elves find themselves walking along the outskirts of both societies. The rigid world of the humans and the results-oriented ways of the elves tend to reject these generalists. By making their way in the world, a Half-Elf feels at home in any place and within almost any culture. Half-Elves can be noble warriors or despicable black-marketers - and any shade in between - without other half-elves so much as raising an eyebrow.
There are two types of Half-Elf, those born to an elven father and human mother, and those born to a human father and an elven mother. If the half-elf's mother is elven, that Half-Elf is immortal like the elves, resistant to disease and incapable of dying of natural causes. If, however, the mother is human, that Half-Elf will be mortal like humans, though their natural lifespan is increased to between 250 and 500 years and they are more resistant to diseases and natural illnesses.
Stronger than their elven parents, wiser and more in tune with nature than their human parents, the Half-Elf has many of the best features of both races. They are patient, thoughtful, reserved, considerate, mellow and balanced.
Half-Elves have considerable endurance, needed only 4 hours of sleep per day to be fully rested. Their clothing varies, though it is generally well-made and beautifully and subtly adorned. Favoured colours are deep blues and greens, grays and gray-greens, silver and white.
