Blood Elf[edit]

Physical Description[edit]

Physically identical to high elves, blood elves tend to wear gold and red to remind themselves of their race's terrible losses. Many bear painted runes or mysterious tattoos on their faces, arms and shoulders for warding off demons or celebrating significant kills or simply to look intimidating — something high elves would never do. They also adopted hairstyles that went against the norms of high elf society. Blood elf males typically have slender, muscular, and athletic bodies. They possess long pointed ears, acute senses and keen sight in the darkness. Blood elf females possess the same characteristics, albeit typically sporting a slim elven physique. Like all elves, blood elves are considered highly attractive by the standards of most mortal races.


Cut off from the powerful energies of the Well of Eternity and no longer immortal, many of the high elves died from exposure or starvation during their long journey. Using a vial of sacred water stolen from the first Well of Eternity, the high elves created a fount of mystical power at a convergence of powerful ley energies in Quel'Thalas. They named this fountain the Sunwell, and its potent arcane magic fed and strengthened all high elves. The power of the high elves grew, and they cast an enchantment on the forest that would keep them bathed in eternal springtime.


Blood elves are perhaps the most magically-attuned race on Azeroth. Even more so than their high elven brethren, because blood elves have dared to delve into the darker arts. It is integral to society.
