- Race special trait 1 : Psychology
A dark elve NPC love to receive flattery ; they are very sensitive about is (the romura incident with the older shop keeper Granbell ). They may dislike other races. In fact, they can be seen as haughty or arrogant, be it by the orc Elder or humans standard . Also they do NOT have that benevolent elvic nature "to protect and value life" and tend to be "quarrelsome and greedy". "They can be seen as picky, lazy and have to be constantly pampered like they are some kind of nobility". Otherwise they will be reluctant to have any conversations with humans. Even shopping or hearing basic stories in a bar is possible but the profit will still be left minimal.

In group, they are capable of using a very strong Flame spell who could burn down thousands of orcs in one shot.
This powerful race is long allied to the blood necromancers and are sheltering their Black Temple. After the Orc conquest of their citadel, they swiftly made an alliance with the glorious orc leader to help him kill the Lich Shire and his undead legion. Their policy : "The enemy of our enemy is our friend". In that sense, their survival skill is stronger than their pride.
After the undead legion destruction, and the peace truce with the other races, the dark elves started very soon to open shops and sell some of their productions. The local products are fruits, medical herbs, weapons (bows and dagger mostly), various tools... and they have plenty rare things. They also take pride into "in the flexibility, elasticity and rigidity of their cultivated trees" and of any their craftmanship.
- Dark elf
The origin of the fantasy theme of the dark elves is to be found in the old northern mythology. It was updated through Tolkien, and the "dark" and/or "drow"  elfic theme was developed through RPG D&D. Especially through the goddess "Lolth"  in the Queen of the demon web  story. But this part was not included in the LMS novel.
