Dark Elves are beautiful, ageless, and naturally magical, despite being a depraved and evil subterranean offshoot of elves. While some might consdier their beauty to match their elven cousins, their jet black skin and stark contrasting pale hair make most consider them slightly less alluring. Dark elves tend to avoid mingling with other races, preferring the subterranean locale of their home. Dark elves tend to be smaller and thinner than elves, standing about 5 to 6 feet tall and typically weighing 85 to 120 pounds, with dark elf men the same height as and only marginally heavier than dark elf women. Dark elves possess unearthly grace and fine features, like elves, but also share their frail nature. They tend to have jet black skin and white hair, but almost any pale shade of hair color is possible, and their eyes are often a vivid red. Much like elves, dark elves have no facial or body hair. An elf reaches adulthood at about 110 years of age and can live to be thousands of years old, though this is rare due to the violent nature of dark elves. Most other races see the dark elves as evil, but they see their morals in the light of their religious devotion. Their society is matriarchal and rigidly controlled by the priesthood. It is this religion that drives them towards subjugation or extermination of races. When a dark elf is encountered outside of their village or war band, either the individual is an advance scout for an impending war band or is a dark elf that has left their village due to religious (and moral) differences. These refugees always depart on their own; if these differences are ever discovered by the village, the individual is put to death for sake of racial purity rather than being cast out.
