half-elf

The Basics:

Elves and humans sometimes have children together, giving rise to half-elves. With many of the best features of both humans and elves, half-elves have capabilities distinct from both races. They are charismatic and versatile.

Average Height: 5´5˝–6´2˝
Average Weight: 130–190 lb.

Aging: Half-elves have life spans comparable to humans, but like elves they remain vigorous well into old age.

Language: common, elven

Specifics:

Half-elves are found across the entirety of the Southern Lands and the Moonlit Isle. Many are raised with more influence from one parent race or the other, and therefore take on more characteristics of that race.

Half-elves tend to be sturdier of build than elves but more slender than most humans. Half-elves have the same range of complexions as humans and elves, and like elves, half-elves often have eye or hair colors not normally found among humans. Male half-elves can grow facial hair, unlike male elves, and often sport thin mustaches, goatees, or short beards. Half-elves’ ears are about the size of human ears, but they are tapered, like the ears of their elven ancestors.

Half-elves usually adopt the dress and hairstyles of the society they spend the most time with; for example, a half-elf raised among a barbaric human tribe dresses in the furs and skins favored by the tribe and adopts the tribe’s style of braids and face paint. However, it would not be unusual for half-elves raised among humans to seek out articles of elven clothing or jewelry so that they can proudly display signs of their dual heritage.

Half-Elf Characteristics: Accommodating, adaptable, charming, confident, gregarious, open-minded.
