Ashes of the West
A race that seems similar to humans. They have pointed ears, and average height three inches above that of a human, and a more muscular physique than humans, and they once controlled all of North America. When the humans arrived from Europe to colonize American, they began a long, costly war with the elves, who were unwilling to give up their land. After nearly a century, the humans had defeated them, driving them north into Canada to rebuild. Their defeat left behind many destroyed elven ruins, some of which are still home to powerful arcane and technological secrets of the past.
Their culture is similar to that of the ancient Romans, in architecture, philosophy, and religion. Before the elven clans unified as the Corinium Ascendancy, they operated in a clan-like structure. They are innately magical, and many find that sorcery comes naturally.
It has been discovered that they were once human, accounting for their few differences. A critical event occurred that increased their strength and durability, gave them pointed ears, and bestowed magical talent upon each and every one of them. It is unknown exactly what the critical event was, though the Dominator is known to have had a hand in it.
