“No mercy, no quarter given. We of the Uulihanni will not rest until our dark kin have been eradicated.”
Twilight elves consider themselves to be the guardians and justicars of the elven people. It is they who keep the dark elves, their fallen cousins, from threatening the surface in force. Their martial prowess and military tactics rival those of the Hobgoblins – indeed the two races have much in common, though both would find the idea revolting. While the twilight elves have made their homes underground to fight their hated foe they are not well suited to the environment. They are the tallest, and most handsome of all the elves, radiating the arrogant beauty of the original elves before the Great Schism that led to the separation of the elves into distinct subcultures.
The twilight elves have taken the matriarchal social structure from their hated foes – women are priestesses and powerful sorceresses while the men are almost exclusively soldiers. The twilight elves worship the Lady Love primarily but do not extend the Goddess’ teachings to their enemies. They care for the weak and helpless while at the same time ruthlessly and savagely fighting those they consider evil. For a race that worships the deity of love and kindness, the twilight elves carry much hatred in their hearts.
Twilight elves are the tallest of all the elves – standing on average 6 feet and some reaching upwards to 6’4″. Both sexes tend to be well toned, with some males reaching very muscular builds. Their hair tends to be blonde, though dark brown or even black is not too uncommon. Red hair crops up occasionally and is usually indicative of high magical potential.
Twilight Elves favor the Sorcerer, Paladin, Fighter, Avenger, and Warlord classes.
