Physiology[edit | edit source]
Dark Elves are virtually identical to their closest kin, Snow Elves. They are just as tall, although they are much more flexible. This makes it easier for them to carry out assassination jobs. Like Snow Elves, they have golden colored eyes, but instead of light blue eyes, they often have light red colored eyes or deep black eyes.
Dark Elves wear darker clothing made of Maltrio, a metal used by the Dark Elves. This metal is very resistant, but also very bendable, making it useful for their armor.
Language[edit | edit source]
Dark Elves once spoke the language known as Elven Tongue, but now speak the Common Tongue. The only races who still speak the Elven Tongue are the Snow Elves, Sand Elves and the Moon Elves. though the Drow use some words.
Combat[edit | edit source]
Dark Elves are moderately good at magic, preferring spells that cloak the user and enhance stealth. They prefer a combo of blade and magic, cloaking themselves in invisibility and assassinating the target.
Religion and Government[edit | edit source]
Dark Elves worship the Maiden of Darkness, the goddess Maltayr. They have an extremely close relationship with the goddess and like Snow Elves, have a religion based government.
Temples[edit | edit source]
In all of Dakmeri, there are many shrines of Maltayr, consisting of altars to sacrifice to the deity, as killing is actually a deed of good for the goddess. However there is only one true temple to the goddess, the Temple of the Dark Maiden. Here the Arch-Priestess, female ruler of the Dark Elves, lives and performs sacrificial rituals for Maltayr.
Gender Equality[edit | edit source]
In Dark Elf religion and culture females are considered superior to males; males are referred to as only farmers, warriors, and hunters, not priests, assassins, or any other jobs.
Arch-Priestess[edit | edit source]
The Arch-Priestess, like the Snow Elf ruler, High Son of Kryossiom, is the religious and governmental ruler. She is given the title from her mother. However there hasn't been an Arch-Priestess since the Dark Blood War, where the Blood Elves killed the last Arch-Priestess and literally sacrificed her blood to their god. She had no daughter and it is unknown who will be the next Arch-Priestess. The Priests say that until Maltayr herself elects a new one, the Priests will rule in unison.
Alliances[edit | edit source]
The Dark Elves create the Dark Elf Legion to unite the greater beings, as they see, and rule Dawn. They say they have been told by the Dark Maiden herself, the only people worth sparing are the Snow Elves, the Blood Elves, and Drow. The Dark Elf Legion makes its home on Dakmeri.
