Adverseric Elf Race Details

Adverseric Elves are a magical people being decedents from The Adversary living between the worlds but not entirely part of it. They live in places of ethereal beauty, in the midst of floating islands in glittering with faerie light, gentle fragrances waft on the breeze. Adverseric Elves love magic and destruction, art and artistry, music and grace, and the chaotic things of the world.

Standards and Ranges

With their gods like grace and fine features, Adverseric Elves appear hauntingly beautiful to humans and members of many other races. They are slightly taller than humans on average, ranging from well under 5' 6" tall to just over 6' 6". They are around the same size as humans, weighing around 100 to 300 pounds. Males and females are about the same height, and males are only marginally heavier than females.

Adverseric Elves’ coloration encompasses the normal human range and also includes skin in shades of purple, pinks, and bluish-white, hair of green or blue, and eyes like pools of liquid etherium in the coloration of cyan's, green's, blue's, and purple's. Elves have little to no facial or body hair. They favor elegant clothing in dark colors, and they enjoy extravagant jewelry.

A Timeless Advance 

Adverseric Elves can live well nearly forever, giving them a broader perspective on events that might trouble the shorter-lived races more deeply. They are more often excited, and more likely to be greedy. They tend to remain unfazed by small happenstance. When pursuing a goal, however, whether adventuring on a mission or learning a new skill or art, Adverseric Elves can be focused and relentless. After reaching their stage of adulthood aging slows to almost nothing.  

Hidden Realms

Most Adverseric Elves dwell through spatial rifts of Etherium living inside the voidless space. Highly advanced magic users create floating islands out of pure etherium. Adverseric Elves hunt creatures, gather food and grow vegetable on these floating islands. Their skills with etheric magic allow them to support themselves without the need for outer realm imports. They are talented artisans, crafting fanciful clothes and other extravagant details to suit their fanciful lifestyle. Their contact with outsiders is usually limited, though a few Adverseric Elves make a good living by trading through the black markets in the outer realms.

Adverseric Elves encountered outside their own lands are commonly dealing among the black markets, doing illegal activities, or harvesting of other races and capturing them to bring back to their rifts as slaves.

Exploration

Adverseric Elves take up adventuring out of necessity in order to spread their cause of domination and criminal activities. They revile the pace of human society, which is regimented from day to day but constantly changing over the decades. Adverseric Elves also enjoy exercising their martial prowess or gaining greater magical power, and adventuring allows them to do so. Some might disown their family joins with rebels fighting against oppression, and others might become champions for their own moral causes.
