Legends of Arcur
High Elves are the natives of the Ecclesiarchy of Lethray, and while they are found in many places throughout the world they are vastly more common there. They claim to be the oldest race in Arcur, and to date none have been able to find any evidence to the contrary. Graceful and aloof, High Elves often work as benefactors to their community and are usually dedicated to the ideals of law and good, often following Mundael the Crusader as their deity. For the most part, High Elves rarely laud their perceived superiority over others, and are often content to lead simple lives working to strengthen those around them.
High Elves are tall and lean, standing somewhere between six to six and a half feet tall, with delicate features and slender limbs. Their hair is usually golden, and their eyes bright and jewel-toned.
