Legends of Arcur
Sylvan Elves are elves that live in the deep woodlands and forests. High Elves will claim that the Sylvans are an offshoot, a branch that split off from them long ago abandoning the Ecclesiarchy to follow other pursuits. Sylvan Elves proclaim that they have always been a separate race, and find the idea that they are simply an offshoot to be laughable at best and insulting at worst. The Sylvan’s have a deep and strong familial bond between them, and a powerful cultural connection to the land. Druids and Rangers often hail from this proud people. Generally speaking they are carefree and fun loving, pursuing ventures on their whims and going where and how they please.
Sylvan Elves are about as tall as humans, though have similarly delicate features to High Elves, though often slightly sharper. Their hair color ranges from black to coppery red. Their skin ranges from pale to dark tan, and their eyes are larger but carry similar colors to humans. They have a strong and graceful build, and their warriors often carry themselves like predators.
