In Wyrm Sons elven blood is powerful and keeps for long, almost no half-elf is the son or even grandson of an elf. There is instead a really rich half-elven community in the barbarian human kingdoms. This community formed at the time of human invasions, so the ancestors of the half-elves are the faerie elves. The half-elves live side by side with humans and they took their customs in the course of the centuries, departing from their original inheritance. To survive in a hard and hostile world they developed a strong racial tie and they specialized in fighting: their mercenary troops are the most trusted and lethal (and expensive) of the continent.
