Elves

Elf live in the forest, or in your shoes, or a crack in the walkway, or possibly exist in a realm that is next to but not touching this one. Like the dwarfs, elves are often thought to be fiction by the people of Aldsburg.

Found is some book:
Elves both terrify and fascinate humans (often in the opposite order). They are similar but endowed with a strange alien beauty that belies something sinister (or at least utterly self-absorbed) in the elfin heart. Elves are creatures still attached to the faerie and are therefore unpredictable at best, and destructive at worst. They tend to wear exquisite finery (even their adventuring gear is well made and stylish) which only adds to their allure.

The mind of an elf is a strange place. They have a penchant for arcane magics from the linger fey blood that courses through their veins, and because of their longevity, generally do not interact well with the short-lived humanoids they so often despise (most elves suffer from the Racism quirk). An elf is just as likely to lend a hand in raising a barn with a group of struggling mud farmers, as they are to then burn it down as some sort of a joke a year later, laughing hysterically while the farmers are forced to watch in arcane stasis.

Humans that know will steer clear and attempt not to anger an unknown elf … or a known elf for that matter. The curious tend to fawn over them. Elves, who in general believe themselves of ancient nobility among the races, find either of these attentions acceptable or punishable by cruelty. When not being batshit insane, elves do tend to make fantastic adventuring companions as they can wield a sword and shoot fire from their hand with equal skill, often understand the wilderness at a fundamental level, and have no compunction when it comes to some of the more morally questionable activities. On the flip side, monstrous humanoids love to dine of elf flesh, and elves tend to get a bit crazy about that.
