Mountain Elf

The Mountain Elves are a clan of Elves that live in the bowels of the Dragon Spine Mountains. They have been led by Queen Morganae Sunderstone for thousands of years, and still are today.

Appearance

Mountain Elves are commonly pale and thin with dark hair and eyes, although a child of summer season's hair or sky-colored eyes does appear from time to time. Black-hearted as the night, a Mountain Elf's devious mind is not to be trifled with.

Summary of portions of "The Elven Folk" by Matron Selidhn, an Elf

The Mountain Elves were once a part of the Wind Clan, but according to their stories around 2900 BL these Elves were invited to feast with the Dwarven Mountain King of the Dragon Spine Mountains. Once there they were all poisoned and the warriors and adults were killed, leaving the children to be enslaved. When one of the original survivors, Morganae, had lived in captivity for 150 years she lead a revolt that killed all the Dwarves in the mountain and made Morganae the Queen of the Mountain Elves. When the Elves tried to leave most found the sunlight of the outside world was intolerable and remained in the mountains. The few that did leave formed the loose association of Elves known as the Bone Elves.
