Elves are the most varied and adaptive of all races, so summarizing them is a tad difficult. Some elves are wildsmen, living solitarily in the forests for their entire lives. Others have never spent a day outside of the city, burying themselves in their studies and practicing politics amongst the other nobles. Others still are nomads, existing in small, tight-knit communities in search of natural resources.
Elves have known of Minecraftia for eons, but have only recently ventured into it after learning the Dwarves discovered valuable resources there. The Dwarven and Elven nobilities have long been at odds with one another, and live in constant fear of the other race gaining a military advantage.
When Elf is selected your character looks slightly taller and stretched.
