The elves are a slender and wise humanoid race spread throughout all lands of Palodar, in both their own cities and society and living in others. Several bloodlines of the elves inhabit the lands, although certain lines are more commonly found in certain parts of the world than others.
The elven races and bloodlines were established after elves began walking the lands. Settlements and kingdoms separated the first elves as traditions became their own.
Elves are seen to see to have unearthly beauty and grace not gifted to other races, therefore they are typically held in higher regard.
Elves located in other societies are those longing to experience more than just their traditions, sent as a part of reaching maturity or even those of exile. Those settled in other societies can be settled into various roles from advisors, diplomats, artisans and, scouts or rangers.
The elven races stand taller than most other races with otherworldly grace and fine features. Appearing hauntingly beautiful to all other races, unmatched by any other.
Due to the size and differences in every kingdom, there is no set standard for how the military is viewed. Each kingdom will have its own different military and militia views, as some will be a military state kingdom, whereas some will solely rely on able-bodied militias to defend their lands.
It is common to see each major city have its own military which will also be responsible for the protection and law-keeping of not only their city but also the city-state surrounding.
Smaller towns may have a full unit of official city-state guards as well as a number of able-bodied people who are able to bear arms.
