The City of Lanterns
Aloof and darkly beautiful the Dark Elves of Balefire are a mysterious race. Once the most dominant race in the city the past century has seen their slow decline. Outnumbered now by humans the Dark Elves have gone underground as it were. The dealings of the Dark Elves in the City are dealt with by envoys known as Syndics who represent the collective will of the Dark Elven Houses, or the Syndicate.
Most of the greatest Shadowdancer Academies, Assassins Guilds, and Dueling Societies in Balefire are run by Dark Elves. Their natural grace and dark impulses make them the premier connoisseurs of these shadowy arts. Dark Elves are also master Transmuters and the finest Shapers among them rise to prominance quickly. The foremost Shaper in Balefire today is Milluefar as his creation of the Beacon Moth have given the City Watch a signiture mount and a thriving beast trade.
