    Elves. There are numerous types of them throughout books, movies, and tv but what is one specific elf character or perhaps elf race that you like! My personal favorite elven character is Iorveth from the Witcher 2 as he breaks the typical elf stereotypes and is tough and gritty and has a dark side but is willing to sacrifice in order to help nonhumans and to further his cause .What's your favorite pointy eared race/person and why?

    Tolkien Elves are the only Elves I recognize as "cool." The fact that we call them "elves" and not "elfs" is because of Tolkien's insistence on it to his editor/publisher. 

    Cool discussion though.

    My first introduction to elves in any sense was from The Hobbit in 6th grade. From there, I remember being absolutely fascinated with Magic the Gathering art since I tried being an artist myself. I always loved the elven cards and the depictions of the specific cards.

    Love both Tolkiens elves and the elves in dragon age. I do love the elf races in the elder scrolls too but I hate that they can have beard so all my elf characters are beardless. Favorite elves must be Legolas from lord of the rings, Merril and Fenris from Dragon Age and Neloth from Skyrim.

    The first place I encounter elves was DA:O... And in that game Humans are the worst! I first learned about elves from the Rudolf the red nosed reindeer stomp motion special... yeah...

    That and actual Norse words would have translated to that form of grammar...

    But the editor/publisher didn't know that.
