Holy Elf[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Holy Elves are near identical to their non-holy counterparts, except that the eyes are always blue, they are much shorter, and the hair will never be any dark than a light shade of brown. They also have slight ridges to their ears, at the base of the ear. The picture is nearly a perfect explanation of holy elves, except that their hair can't be green, and this would be a child of age 8.

History[edit]

Holy elves, unlike normal elves, have been blessed by a Goddess (whose name was lost) eons ago. They were gifted with intelligence of various religions of the many Gods of the worlds. Using this knowledge, they began creating places of worship all over their homes. This is where the divide between normal and holy elves came in, as holy elves began to drive out non-believers. Today, Holy Elves are accepting of all religions, except for one, Holy Elves are extremely opposed to atheism. Holy elves will actively draw from their limitless supply of Gods and proof of them to get them into at least one.

Society[edit]

Holy elves are constantly worshiping their Gods, and often spend 5 hours of the day doing so. Everyone is accepting in Holy Elf society, because despite their opposing loyalties, there is a unanimous acknowledgement that all known Gods and Goddesses exist. Most will avoid conflict unless their Deity calls for arms, but this is rare.

Holy Elf Names[edit]

Holy Elves are named like normal elves.

Male: Keavan, Ellamin, Adric

Female: Daedi, Wynrel, Faenala
