Elnari (High Elf)
The Elnari, or self-titled "Eladrin", are a tall, brightend-skinned race, hailing from the Anshys Isles. They are also known as High Elves by other races of Arkacia. In the Arkacian Empire, "High" is often understood to mean proud or snobbish, and as the Elnari generally personify these characteristics, the "lesser races" generally resent them. Elnari live two to three times as long as humans; with a 200-year-old Elnari being old and a 300-year-old Elnari being very, very old. Elnari consider themselves to be the most civilized culture of Arkacia; the common tongue of the continent is based on Elnari speech and writing, and most of the Empire's arts, crafts, laws, and sciences are derived from Elnari traditions.
