Elves are wild-nomadic groups on the fringes of society. They hate men for the history of hatred against them. Like Dwarves, many elves are still enslaved to men, and treated as cheap (free) labour. Upon entering slavery, they are tattooed to mark them as owned, the tattoo differing upon the owner. Elves have embraced the ritual, tattooing their bodies as a symbol against their oppression. As such, it is not uncommon to find Elves who are covered in ink.
