The elves of Sym are quite drastically different from the elves of the other lands, which again suggests that they had undergone some form of harsh trials, probably forced upon them. They are higher than normal elves, and indeed often higher than humans. They have a tendency for light hair and eyes. Their lifespan, although exceeding the normal human one by nearly two and a half times is by far less than that of the other elves. A feature that is always quickly apparent are the elves’ pointed ears.

If anything can be said about the elves is this: they’ve got style. Elves, appreciators of all kinds of beauty, have got good taste in clothing and are very sensitive to fashion, albeit only elven fashion.
