Dark Elf

Depraved and evil subterranean offshoot of elves.

It was eons ago that the first elves split off from the moon elf tribes and made their way to the subterranean regions that they call home today. In the exploration of magic, a group of moon elves discovered the dark arts of necromancy and the summoning of monsters. As their art devoured them, they became disgusted with their carefree brethren who never used their superior powers to subjugate the lesser races. They decided to forsake the world altogether and gather their strength. Moving underground they gave up their worship of the moon, and embraced the true darkness of the world, becoming dark elves. The change became physical over the years, with their skin turning ebony and their hair white as snow. While the magic they possessed as moon elves also adapted to their new world; giving them infravision and a natural protection against magic. Dark elves remain lithe and graceful, but have become cruel and evil. They live in great cities deep beneath the earth, often warring with other races of the deep as well as between themselves. The dark elves despise all races that are weaker than they are and have a passionate hatred of all elves.
