About Elves

Elves are one of the races in the Shannara series of epic fantasy novels by Terry Brooks. They are the only race of the faerie creatures (apart from the King of the Silver River and Uhl Belk) still in the World, though they now have become mortal. Though Elves usually refers to the Westland Elves, Elves can be split into two: the 'Land Elves' and the 'Sky Elves'. Note: when the word 'Elves' is used in this article, it is referring to the Land Elves. The Land and Sky Elves are the names for two separate groups of Elves in the Westland. Ethnically they are almost identical, but culturally very different. Sky Elves interact with the giant Roc birds, whereas Land Elves do not. The Sky Elves live in the far south in the Wing Hove (on the coast of the Blue Divide), whereas a majority of the Land Elves live in their capital city, Arborlon, or in the surrounding towns. In the time of Faerie, the Elves were created as servants and shepherds of the forests.
