The elves of Eldin were high elves many thousands of years ago but have since “gone native,” living among humans in settled regions and forsaking their treetop dwellings. Many elves still find themselves drawn to forested areas, but the majority of them live in Eldin’s walled cities as easily as humans. As a result, even those who consider themselves purely elven likely have some measure of human ancestry. As such, they stand a bit taller than normal high elves and live for only 400 or so years. Many no longer partake of the Reverie, choosing instead to sleep. Whether this change is genetic or the result of conformity to the diurnal nature of their neighbours is uncertain.
