Elves and half elves are the second most common races in Ilarion. Elves tend to live about twice as long as humans, but also mature at half the speed. They are the majority race in Atsmah, Bláthnata, Falder Nor and Torleif. The current king of Bourkland is a half elf.
Humans generally regard half elves as elves, due to their pointed ears, but many elves believe themselves to be superior to half elves.
