What are Dark Elves?
Dark Elves are a common subdivision of the fantasy elf race. They possess a lot of the same physical and character traits that are common with the elf as a species. Dark elves differ in that they are far more cruel and untrustworthy, a trait that is not common at all with the standard elf personality.
Dark elves tend to have a darker skin tone and dress differently to regular elves. This is not where the name comes from. The visual appearance of a dark elf is more a reflection of their inner darkness and serves as a way for people to more easily identify them from the standard elves.
