First of all, so I don't offend any serious fantasy fans, Bastion-Elves (or Palace-Elves) are a little creation of my own. They're similar to the Elves of LOTR save for their habitat, which are palace-like structures generally bordering the forest or completely outside of the forest. Anyhow, Bastion-Elves are physically identical to the High Wood-Elves, and though they have a similar great respect for nature and are virtually omniscient, they tend to live a lifestyle more similar to that of humans. They generally carry a set of swords such as these. (This actually shows two colors of one set; they wouldn't actually carry six blades--most of the time.) These sets are similar to the Daisho of the Samurai.
