The Alfar were once a race of elves who played with arcane magic as if it were toy, which led to arrogance and haughtiness among their people. Eventually, this caused in-fighting amongst their people, and most of their race died out in the resulting war. Those who survived fled to isolated parts of the land and looked to the gods of good for guidance. In exchange for generations of their time, these gods granted them the insight, intelligence, and charisma necessary to avoid conflict with each other. However, when they emerged, they noticed that the land was in a new stage of conflict itself, and decided to put their new skills to use in order to quell this turmoil.

Play an Alfar if you want...

  • to be wise, charismatic, and intelligent.
  • to excel at either divine or arcane magic.
  • to be a member of a race that favors the cleric, invoker, and wizard classes.

Physical Qualities[edit]

Alfar are commonly pale-skinned due to their limited physical activity and general seclusion from the outside world. Alfar are short, even by elven standards, and have elongated ears much like elves and eladrin. Their hair is commonly a pallid blonde, silver, or light-blue, reflecting their enlightened status. Alfar eyes are either light blue or an almost neon green color, and they commonly have symbols reflecting their patron deity tattooed somewhere on their body (commonly the face or arms). An Alfar that becomes physically strong will be more athletic than overly-muscular, although the difference is still apparent. Men are only a few inches taller and a few pounds heavier than women in general and sprout no facial hair.

Playing an Alfar[edit]

As a race, Alfar are almost always good in nature, but certain circumstances can prevent an Alfar from receiving the same upbringing as others, making it very rare, but not impossible, for an Alfar to be unaligned or even evil, although all Alfar have a natural connection to the gods, making them drawn to the divine power source. Alfar rarely get unorganized and are rather neat and tidy in general, preferring order and a calm environment above most else, but, in times of need, they can become very fierce protectors. However, in their quest to stop conflict, they are often pushy and are not above making their opinions and goals known to others.

Alfar Characteristics: Pious, calm, neat, kind, pushy, vocal

Male Names: Alminaar, Athiston, Bello'mas, Cylkas, Erthus, Ghelbad, Lirris, Naffir, Phelnat, Syruduk

Female Names: Aalthina, Beline, Dylaia, Eamala, Elmoase, Himi'nas, Poleia, Salcyi, Thimala
