Elves were one of the most common slave races within the Dominion, and also the largest group within the rebellion leading to the collapse. As slaves, they often functioned as personal servants and elite soldiers (or personal guards). Following the Collapse, many elven slaves relocated to their newly-founded kingdom of Llionvialle.
Prior to their enslavement, the elves of Kythar lived in the open plains and forests of the Known World, becoming masters of magic and the art of the sword and bow. Family ties are very important to the elves, and most will do anything to improve the standing of their family name, or to cause suffering to those their family is feuding with. Duels between members of two families that openly dislike each other are very common.
