I shall rise above the darkness of the night and become the shade you hide in

Physical Description[edit]

These elves usually have dark green skin with brown or silver eyes and black hair standing at about 5'0" to 5'9" feet tall, usually slender with several tattoos on their bodies and faces and weight about 130 to 180 Lbs.

History[edit]

These elves came into being from a Dark elf and a high elf. They are Known to excel in knowledge and intelligence with a quick temper and a thirst for power. The Shade Elves have once tried to conquer the multiverse, but after centuries of battles they were ultimately lead to retreat to the dark swamps they call home, their numbers diminished. They are more active at night and are under high surveillance from the other elven races, as they are a very dangerous race if they are left alone for too long.

Society[edit]

This race excels in research and combat efficiency, as such, they have turned their homes into an inventor's dream with ingeniously crafted housing structures and creatively designed research buildings that blend in with the surrounding swamps. Most of the shade elves are arrogant and firmly believe they are better than others, they also hate outsiders. They believe in a structured society where science prevails over religion.
