Describe half-elves here.
And here again.
Since the time of Kith-Kanan, when elves first began to interact extensively with human races, elves and humans have fallen in love and married. Whether born of love or hate, the mixed blood of the half-elves forever brands them as outcasts from both elven and human society.
Half-elves inherit the best qualities of both their parents. They have the love of beauty and reverence for nature of the elves and the ambition and drive of humans. Due, perhaps, to the prejudice they face from both societies, half-elves tend to be introverts and loners. Scorned and belittled, some half-elves are insecure and rebellious, lashing out at those who hate them for what they are.
Half-elves strongly resemble their elven parents, though unlike elves, they are capable of growing facial hair. The hair coloration of half-elves is inconsistent with elven heritage, while their eyes are quiet often blue or hazel. Half-elves are more stocky than elves, but slimmer than humans. Lacking the unapproachable beauty of the elven parent, half-elves still tend to be attractive, with fair skin and nimble grace. Half-elven dress reflects the culture in which they are raised or currently living.
Half-elves are treated as outcasts by both humans and elves, so it is not surprising that many find more companionship with members of other “outcast” races, such as gnomes and kender. Caught in the middle of the political and social tensions between elves and humans, half-elves try to avoid having to deal with either race if at all possible.
Half-elves share the same characteristics of chaos or lawfulness as their elven parent, in addition to the human tendency toward extremes. They value independence and freedom of expression and have little love for authority. Born outsiders, they often resent the rules and demands placed upon them by others, and can at times prove to be unpredictable or unreliable.
Half-elves have no land of their own, since they are outcasts from the societies of both parents. Loners, half-elves move from community to community, always searching for a place to call home.
Half-elves raised in an elven community follow the elven religious beliefs, while those raised among humans tend towards worshiping the gods as humans do.
Half-elves share the language of both their human and elven heritage. Their usage of Elven tends to be less precise than a true elf's, though only another elf would notice the difference.
Half-elves are often named in the tradition of their mother's heritage, whether that is elven of human. Those born outside of wedlock are only given a first name, with a sobriquet appended as a last name that indicates the half-elves status (such as Half-Elf, White-Robe, and so on). Half-elves born in wedlock receive the proper full name of their parents.
As loners and outcasts, half-elves roam the world, searching for a place where they can be accepted despite their heritage. Half-elves are drawn to other outcasts or outsiders for whom they fell an affinity.
