The Dark Elves are best known for their cruelty and ruthlessnes. Their skin
is a dull grey from generations of underground dwelling. Typically they
possess white hair, and cold eyes. They are a medium race of average height,
much like the elves of the surface.
Traits and Abilities:
The Drow elves come from the darkest parts of the world, where no light
is allowed entrance. They have the innate abilities of darksight and
infravision due to these conditions. Granting them vision at night, and to
see in the heat spectrum as well. This also brings them great pain in the
light though, for all drow are weak to bright, holy attacks. Because of
their cruel nature most drow understand their dark minds so well that they
have become more resiliant to attempted mental intrusions. They also have
the ability to levitate when they are deep under the surface world.
The elusive Dark Elf is the oldest of all the Elven races. Created in the
image of Sulru'Shu Daeshaalmaeron himself. Sulru'Shu helped create the world
alongside Aarchane and Laurelin dating back to the earliest days of the world
of Draknor. They were created in the deep, dark caverns below the surface,
and to this day thrive underground. During the First Age of the world a
large population of Drow could no longer bear the dark and deceptive ways of
their brethren. They moved to the surface and developed themselves there,
thus creating the other elven forms: Half Elves and Surface Elves.
