The elves are one of the two civilized races known to the Empire. They make their homes primarily in the great forests to the west of the Birchon Valley. Politically, they are currently a loose coalition of city-states: a more central organization has not appealed to them since the days of Amnor.
Although initially greatly interested in the Empire, the elves have grown a bit more distant over time, at least politically. They still maintain nominal political ties to both the Kingdom and the Empire. They also still participate in a lot of trade, especially selling their services as excellent elemental sorcerers. They are outwardly polite to the humans, but most of them believe that the Empire’s days on Selanis are numbered and don’t have very high expectations of them.
