4.12.2 The Edhel Race
Swift and graceful, the elves of Midkemia are a legendary race of long lived
beings. The elves are the eldest race upon Midkemia, originating on the world long before the younger races arrived fleeing the destruction of the Chaos Wars. Dwelling in forest and mountain, they are known by many names, some good and some evil. "Elf" is a Human name for these ancient and ethereal beings, who call themselves either Eledhel - "the light ones" - or Moredhel - "the dark ones" - in their own tongue, and do not recognize each other as kin. Both terms derive from the elvish word for themselves: Edhel, meaning the People.
