Alfar

Waking from their slumber, the elves of Certovia find themselves starting their days giving homage to the two gods of the Pius, Morifa and Ramus Cura, who formed them. Fair of skin and with grace in each step, their ages are unknown and they are obsessed with the beauty of art!. Tasked with being the protectors of the glade, they take their positions seriously!

 

As dwellers in dense forests, and being able to commune with nature, they have now become shared leaders of the Electi with their Human brothers. The Humans, being masterful hunters, have taught them skills, which they found awkward and despicable. So, to honor Morifa, they have changed fighting techniques into a new artform, which they use with stealth and cunning…even exceeding that of the Humans. Both cordially meet in Council to counter the Fallen with wisdom and law. The Darkness, after all, is a mutual enemy and must be stopped. And at what cost? Great responsibilities come to those who are Called!

Backstory: 

The Alfar of Thelrodah Valley, like other of the Gods creations, were brought into existence to keep the Dragons of the world in check. As children of Morfia, Goddess of color and beauty, the Alfar are the only race created by the Pius Gods which are free from the taint of Dark Magic. As such, they take it upon themselves to be the wardens and protectors of the natural order, to preserve the magnificent world touched by the hand of their creator.

 

 

Often confused by others as arrogance, the boundless sense of nobility that drives the Alfar to protect the other races, often puts them on the front lines of any conflict, excluding others from their ranks unless absolutely necessary.

Alfar Society:

Living alongside Humans, the Alfar harbor no ill will towards their shorter lived cousins, viewing them more as children that require protection. However, they have come to greatly appreciate, even admire, the human talent for diplomacy and wordplay – often the only means of diffusing volatile situations that arise when dealing with the Rel’goth, who the Alfar view more as tools to be utilized and not consulted.

As a whole, the society views themselves as self-appointed guardians for all things created by the Pius, which includes Humans and, as such, when a member of Alfar society comes of age, they are required to make a public oath of self sacrifice, pledging their lives to the defense of anything containing the spark of beauty from their patron deity, Morfia.

Strengths:

Alfar revel in the beauty of life and all art forms that are a part of the world. Dancing, music, philosophy, painting, and even poetry are all valuable to elves. It was a simple matter to transfer these attributes towards the artistry of combat and warfare. Given their more slender physique, Alfar tend to have exceptional grace, agility, charisma and intelligence, as well as a higher than average dexterity.
