The elfin figure before you has plaited black hair and silver skin. She looks world-weary as she leans heavily on a staff of white wood topped with a mote of silver light.

Everything about her feels faded and grey, as if washed out by the gloom of the world.

Sable elves have an innate affinity for arcane magic.

Long ago, they were exiled from the dwindling elven empire, and now the survivors of this dying race wander the dark places of the world, searching for purpose.

Blood Affinity. Every sable elf is born with an affinity for magic. As a sable elf matures, it becomes clear which school of magic they are particularly suited to, and they gain the innate ability to cast spells from the associated school of magic.

Fallen to Shadow. The few sable elves that remain possess the last vestiges of powerful elven magic that helped shape the early phases of the world, and they guard their secrets in isolation. Their powerful capabilities allow these ancient elves to survive in almost any climate, and the dark forests of the Shadow Realm house a handful of these wanderers.
