Races of Middle-Earth: ELVES


Elves, aka the Unfallen Race, can be considered as angels of Middle-Earth. Their race is all together graceful, timeless, heavenly and mysterious. Elves are the oldest and wisest among all dwellers.

They are highly inclined in arts and lore. No doubt that elves are powerful creatures gifted with sharp senses.

They're divided into two branches: The West-Elves (Eldar) and the East-Elves (those from Mirkwood and Lorien). There are two elven languages: the High-elven (Quenya), considered to be an ancient tongue and the Grey-elven (Sindarin).

Every elf's desire is to move unto the Grey Havens when they grew tired of the mortal lands.
