She sat alone in Bosco, on official business for the family. Though, the threat of her family was most important. Bosco had called her here on important business. One thing caught her attention here, non-human races were treated like garbage. They were either ignored or spat on by the public, even she had her few negative interactions themselves. Lee leaned back in her seat remember what her cousin, Tadashi, had told her the other day.

-Flashback-

Tired, she laid back her head against the wall. She was almost drifting off to sleep when she felt a tap on her shoulder. Quickly, she startled awake to see her cousin, Tadashi. He had bright pink hair like his mother with glasses and headphones around his neck. "It's my turn to stand watch" he spoke.

Lee was too tired to move and groaned. Tadashi got that as a sign that she wasn't going to move until she gotten some rest. He sat down and looked at his lacrima mp3 player for music. Without a word, he thought about something and turned to Lee. He had known her since they were young. For the longest time, everyone knew she was human, or thought so, but recently the past five years, she had changed into a demi0human or neko. Recent changes brought onto his thought about why his eldest brother would attack the family and rumors he was racist towards other races like Lee and others. "You know Lee, you're pretty special" he smiled.

The comment made her confused because it came out of no where. A contort look was expressed. "How?"

Tadashi gave a small smile and leaned forward to look at her. "You have seen the best and worst of both worlds. You were human before and now a demi-human. Not a lot of people have the chance to experience what both worlds are like. I have experience being human all my life, but you have both under your belt" he explained. Lee thought about it. She agreed since he had a point. It was something she didn't think about often. She never saw herself as a non-human race since it never bothered her like most people. Everyone who met her knew she was a capable person. "You can be the one that can bring our worlds together, Lee. I would love to see it happen someday. A safe place for both humans and non-humans to co-exist" he explained.

She blinked. Tadashi was quiet and never spoke his mind. Though, when he did talk, it was always extremely insightful.


That moment weeks ago had sent her thoughts into a spiral about a solution to the problem. Since joining Blue Pegasus, she had met more non-humans than humans such as Raymus and Atani. They all knew Blue Pegasus was a great guild, but it wasn't fitting well with either of them, especially Lee and Raymus. Atani she couldn't get a good read on just yet. "Here's your tea, ma'am" spoke a waitress. She handed Lee some peppermint tea that Aegis had suggested the other day. The tea soothed her thought as she carefully sipped the hot liquid. Setting it down, she looked at her exceed friend. Lector was busy trying to eat his sandwich with his small paws. "I am sure homesick. Wonder what Atani or Raymus are doing right about now" she spoke out loud.

Politics were exhausting.

Atani normally didn't care for them much, but it seemed every mage from Fiore wanted a hand in the power struggle in Bosco. So, she might as well join in on the fun. Besides, it was important that their neighboring country had a capable sibling on the throne. As for who to support, Hildegard made that decision easy for the Wood Elf. The racial inequality in Bosco that could result from others taking the throne instead fueled the mage's veins with white hot anger, though there was little she could do about that if someone like Brunhilde took the throne instead. She would return to Fiore, and Bosco would be on its own.

What Atani could do in the meantime, however, was help Hildegard gain the support she needs to resonate with her citizens. And she had done just that, though her time in Bosco wouldn't be something pleasant to remember if she only spent it on political business. She was in a new country for Sayha's sake. It would do her some good to relax and enjoy the vastly different culture.

The girl came across something that looked like a nice and quiet spot to have a drink or two. She entered, not quite knowing what she even wanted to order. She wasn't sure how many Fiorian visitors they got over in Bosco, but her fingers were crossed there wouldn't be much of a language barrier. Much to her surprise, however, Atani found that there may not have been much of a need for struggling with broken Boscosi that day. A familiar kitsune was there.

"... Wonder what Atani or Raymus are doing right about now."

"Having tea, same as you."

She hoped she didn't startle Lee too bad. The Wood Elf had ordered Hagebuttentee, whatever that was. She didn't understand what it meant on the menu, but she was a fan of all sorts of teas. She wagered she'd most likely enjoy it.

"And Ray from the guild? He's actually in Bosco too." She paused for a moment and looked to the cat alongside Lee. Or at least, she thought it was a cat. It appeared feline, but it was far from your ordinary pet. "I didn't know you had a... cat?"

The uncertainty was clear in her voice. The Wood Elf had never seen such an animal.

Lee heard a voice, one that was sweet as honey. Her eyes glanced to see Atani. What were the odds? She was so happy to see her new friend. Lee gave a huge grin seeing her. Atani and Raymus were her two new friends she made in the guild. Slowly, Blue Pegasus was making her more and more social it was a gradual process. "That was good timing, Atani" she smiled. Taking another sip of her teas, it tasted sweet and good to her taste buds. It was a new replacement for her alcoholic addiction. Aegis really gave her a good selection of teas to drink. She really loved tea now. It calmed her down.

She perked up hearing Ray was in Bosco too. "Ray is here too! Oh sweet!!" She smiled widely. Lector giggled. He gave a huge smile at Lee with a cheeky expression on his face. "Lee and Raymus sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-i-N-G" he teased. The kitsune growled at her exceed. The exceed smiled, knowing what bothered her. Anytime she mentioned her guy friends like Aegis and Raymus, he teased her. "Sorry Atani. Anyways, yes I cannot wait to see him. I have grown fond on you and Raymus as friends. It's finally good tl have people to depend on" she smiled.

The mention of Lector from Atani made her look at him. Not many people knew about the exceed species. It made feel Lector feel extremely special. "This is Lector, he's an exceed. He found me, wanting to follow me on my journey" she smiled. Lector knew how strong Lee was and admired everything about her. She made him proud to be an exceed. "Yeah, I am an exceed. I can fly and talk your human language. Lee is the strongest fire mage I know and the fastest too" he smiled.

Atani took a seat alongside Lee as the two friends greeted one another. The elf took a sip of her cup of hagebuttentee. Upon the liquid touching her lips, she recognized the flavor to be of rosehips. Unless there were other sparse flavors in the brew, she wagered that this hagebuttentee was the Boscosi equivalent of Fiore's rosehip tea. That was one new word added to her vocabulary, though she did not even know where to begin with its pronunciation, and she wasn't about to embarrass herself trying.

The elf grinned as she saw Lee's reaction to hearing of Ray also being in Bosco. It seemed those two guild mates were good friends as well. But it seemed she wasn't the only one mildly entertained by the kitsune's excitement. Much to Atani's surprise, Lee's feline companion spoke in perfect Fiorian, teasing her about liking Raymus. She would have laughed with the joke, but she was taken so aback by the creature speaking like a human, it completely slipped her mind. Evidently, this was because the cat-- Lector-- was not really a cat; he was an exceed.

"I've never seen an exceed before," she replied, still astounded by unprecedented speech capabilities of the strange creature. "Good to meet you then?"

Atani wasn't sure if that was the appropriate thing to do. Normally, she did not speak this way with animals. Though the elf possessed a rare ability to converse with animals, it did not come across as plain Fiorian like how this exceed spoke. This dynamic, it was entirely different.

"So, what brings you to Bosco?"

The bond between both exceed and demi-human was clear. They really were close on many levels just by the way they spoke to each other. Lector heavily admired a lot with her skills with fire magic and chilivary to protect those around her. She was very devoted to her friends and family, mainly family. There was no questioning how seriously, she took the safety of her family. Friends were even considered family. The teasing about Lee and Raymus being a couple made Lee's blood boil. It was Lector's way of having fun with her. When Lector spoke, Lee noticed her reaction to such a little creature next to her. It was not uncommon to have people wonder what in the world Lector was. A talking cat was very much a rare sight to behold.

"It's okay to feel a little...unsure. We get this reaction a lot of the time. Not a common sight to see animals talking, ya know" she laughed. Lector took a sip of Lee's tea while she was not looking. He smacked his lips and shivered at the taste of the tea. Lee usually drank alcohol, but since meeting Aegis, the introduction to tea opened a whole new world. It was now her new preference. Atani asked what brought her to Bosco since it was such a coquesince that her, Raymus, and Atani were all in the same area."Lee, didn't you say your mother sent you here?"

"Yes and no. I came here since my mother has connections to Bosco, seeing as she is from here. Though, my reason is for family and personal reasons. I have noticed a rather...unusual lack of representation of non-human species in this world and was curious to see how bad it was. As well, I came here to help my family seeing as the politics will affect them. My allegiance is with Cassia with Hildegard as well, but kinda on the fence about the two. In all honesty, I support Cassia since her outlook matches with the Nakamura family, but Hildegard does share my support as well. It's a difficult situation" she explained. The miniature rant made her quiet for several minutes. The thoughts about Tadashi's comment really did reside with her. Lector had heard all about it multiple times. He was even curious about what she would do. "Atani, you're a person who's probably experienced some sort of discrimination. My cousin spoke to me the other day saying how I have been both human and non-human that I possess a special understanding of the struggles of both worlds. That comment has made me think...could I do something about the problems we experience?"

Atani gave an appreciative smile to the kitsune as she explained that it was okay to be unsure around exceeds, especially for the first time. They were a rare species that very few encountered in their lifetime. She should count herself lucky to have met one. As much as elves loved nature, she couldn't imagine that many of them have even seen an exceed due to their reclusiveness. They might have known the forest and its residents inside and out, but foreign species? Not so much. Maybe through a textbook, but certainly not through experience.

As for why Lee was in Bosco, Lector mentioned it had to do something with Lee's mother; however, that was only part of the truth. As with many mages who traveled to Bosco in these times, there was the lure of the current royalty conflict. It seemed the two non-humans were in agreement with Cassia and Hildegard being among the better choices of the Sachsenwald siblings. For Lee, it stemmed from both familial and personal matters. For Cassia, the Nakamura ideals as a whole aligned with hers. For Hildegard, however... Well, not much needed to be said there.

"It is," she solemnly agreed. The elf took another sip of her rosehip tea. Some silence passed between the two before Lee finally broke the silence with the ever so sensitive topic that was bound to result from the mention of Hildegard and her views. While Atani had spent the entirety of her life being a Wood Elf, or in general a non-human, the same could not be said for Lee. As the kitsune had said before, she was not even aware of her demi traits until later due to some form of magical suppression. So, she was correct. She did have a unique understanding on the views and struggles of both sides of the world. Specifically, the human and non-human sides. While each race still underwent their own form of discrimination, the majority of it was still rooted in the causation being human supremacy.

"Could you even do something?" Atani asked. Realistically speaking, there was not much a simple mage of Blue Pegasus could do about the situation. "Not to be blunt or anything... But as much as I want change to happen, what could a mage do? I don't think either of us have much say about what goes on in our own guild, let alone many things in Fiore."

Atani was being realistic about the whole situation. In all honesty, it was no easy fear to change the way society think about a heavily rooted problem. Blue Pegasus didn't do much in that aspect of helping those who really need it in the non-human department. Hell, Raymus was evidence. He was forced by Qlisa to dress "fancy" on one of their mission. She knew it wasn't who Rqymus was. She teased him about it and told him to dress more of himself. She saw through the fake news of how he acted. Lee's eyes narrowed. Ragtime could sense the doubt coming in about what her cousin had said."Listen Kid, I know you better than anyone. You get results when you apply yourself. Stop moping and be the start of that change" Ragtime spoke to her. Inside her mind, Ragtime gave off a positive glow making her feel a little bit better.

"True. I even see it in Raymus's behavior hoe much Blue Pegasus forced himt o be something he wasn't. Even I teased him about how those fancy clothes made him look. My point is...Blue Pegasus...how can I out this...it's not meant for people like us with our goals in mind. Ita great to make friends but not for our reasons" she spoke. She was right. Atani could possibly advocate for what she had spoken of. Raymus even felt a little bit out of place she could tell. All three of them bonded instantly problem through their own hardships such as being forced into a bunny costume and men gawking for all the wrong reasons. Lee wanted a man in her life, but not for those specific ideas in mind.

"If we by ourselves cannot change, then as a group we can. What I am about to say is going to sound crazy...but...let's make our own guild! One that advocates for humans and non-huamns to live in hormony...to help those who needs a start, work, specially to give them a sense of belonging. I know it sounds far fetched, but...this is something I have had on my mind for a while now" she spoke. Anyone could tell she was passionate about doing something. Probably just as much as she would be about her family, which was a lot.

Atani knit her brows as she heard what Lee said about Raymus. The man was a werewolf. As the stereotype went, they weren't exactly the classiest of people. From what she gathered of Lee's words, he fit that to a degree. From Atani's own fight with him, she too could see what Lee meant. The guy was itching to fight left and right. His movements were anything but elegant. For a Wood Elf such as herself, the stereotype was the complete opposite. Elves were expected to have an air of elegance in everything they did. Most weren't even expected to be robust fighters. They were often thin and agile, not muscular and brash. Yet, even so, Atani did not find herself fitting in with all the ideals Blue Pegasus held.

"I agree," she found herself saying. The elf set down her cup of tea and folded her hands together in concentration. She held them up by propping her forearms against the side of the table. "I initially joined Blue Pegasus because I was lost in Fiore. I knew I wanted to join a mage's guild, but everything was so new... And I heard great things about the guild, how the guildmaster was strong, how it had a good reputation. The members there were so willing to get me acquainted with Fiore, but once I finally got some time to see more of the guild myself, the things you're talking about became apparent."

The mage clenched her jaw just thinking of the springtime event held in Hargeon where so many members of the guild had to change into rabbit themed clothes. Atani, of course, was included among those numbers and wore an uncomfortably revealing bunny suit. She had to put on a mask out of sheer embarrassment. That sort of unique brand of 'elegance' was the thing she was referring to. The elf had no qualms about dressing up, but there was a time and place for everything. If she had worn such an outfit in public in her homeland, she would have been laughed off the streets. Elves would be talking about it for weeks on end. What was more, if she hadn't worn the mandatory bunny attire, she couldn't have helped with the events, and then she would have felt guilty for not doing so. Those sorts of things were expected of the superfluous guild. If nobody helped put on the annual event, it would have let Hargeon's citizens (and most importantly its children) down.

"... let's make our own guild!"

Atani's hands unclasped. Her emerald eyes widened in surprise. "Our own guild?" The shock still hadn't yet left her mind. "I mean, I haven't really been happy in Blue Pegasus, but do you know what that means? It'd be a huge responsibility."

As those words left the elf's lips, she realized that statement was probably something Lee well understood, but it nonetheless remained to be an important point. It sounded to her like the kitsune already had a lot on her plate dealing with family matters, and now she wanted to be the leader of a guild. Not even Atani, who had no family issues to deal with, could imagine herself trying to start up a guild... But then again she was still in the process of becoming familiar with Fiore itself. In all likelihood, Lee had a better understanding of how these sorts of things, including guilds, operated. Even so, it sounded incredibly ambitious.

It was both agreed they did feel not nessicarily felt unwelcomed, but the guild wasn't the right fit. While Lee had some fond memories being in the guild, it was very clear a piece of her was still missing. She felt at eased when she was around her family as that was the only place she felt welcomed. Being an outsider in your own guild was not a very good feeling. Atani, Raymus, and herself were strong mages, but felt just another piece on the chess board of life. There was no real significance within their lives they felt with being a non-human race. Most of the guild was made up of humans in fact. The numbers were still accurate with the human vs non-human ratio.

"I joined since Manzo asked me when we were traveling together, but since then I have not felt...at home. Even with making all these new friends and connections, getting used to a guild setting from my Rune Knight life, I still felt like I was an outsider in my own home. I love Blue Pegasus, but I feel...lost. It's a good guild. There are some great people, but I feel it's ideals are pushed against me and Raymus specifically. Seeing how some of the members hate how brutal and violent I can get when I loose me temper. Fair, I can get violent, but only when pushed" she explained. She could relate to Atani's feelings 100%. Even if she had family or not, Lee could understand being lost in her own home. For the longest time, the only friend she had was Judina. now, she had Atani and Raymus by her side that she could count on. Now...she was.

When she proposed the idea of creating a guild, Atani seemed shocked. There was some uncertainty with how big of a task it would be, but Lee knew Atani felt the same as she did. If they couldn't find a place, might as well create it. She knew all too well about the process seeing as she was a Rune Knight for several years and seeing the process of having a guild approved as very...much of a task. "I know how much of a task it is. Trust me, I was a Rune Knight for several years and learned the process by nature since my mother always complained about how tasky it is" she explained. She had the papers ready to go back at her hotel room in case she ever decided to follow through with it. Since her talk with her cousin, she copied the papers and nessicary forms in case she ever decided to follow through with it. "With my current workload, I know I am going to over excerte myself. That's why I am asking you for your help. You and Raymus. I will talk with him actually soon. I normally hate asking for help, but this is a collarbative effort to make a difference. I...want to be there person that can start a change. I want to give other humans and non-humans to chance to understand each other. Most of all, I want somewhere that we can belong" she spoke. There was a lot of passion and edge in her voice. Lee was wanting this more than anything, more so the confidence her family gave when they always told her she was special. Tadashi rarely spoke to her, but when he did it was always memorable.

"It's going to be tough, but I know with you, me, and Raymus, we can make this guild happen!"

Atani solemnly nodded as she listened to Lee's own experience with the guild. Like her, she saw the good in the guild. It was strong and filled with great people. It was filled with friends like Manzo and Raymus, but those things could only bring a guild so far. The people in it could not make up for the clash of ideals. Particularly, Lee mentioned Blue Pegasus' distaste for violence. Evidently, sometimes she was pushed too far, and destruction resulted from it. With the mention of Raymus, Atani could only expect that the werewolf was in a similar situation.

"I can't say I relate to that," she admitted. "Elves are a peaceful race, but I can understand where you're coming from. Nobody should have to be shamed for who they are."

The girl's own beliefs were similar to that of the majority of Wood Elves when it came to violence. She preferred to negotiate when possible, but if required, she was not afraid to hold back in combat. That said, she understood others were not raised under the same principles she was. She understood that others even preferred combat over negotiation, be it that fighting was faster, they had no negotiation skills to begin with, or some other reason. Though of course she appreciated it when people made efforts to keep peace, she did not find fault in doing otherwise unless it was excessive.

As for the matter of starting up a guild, Lee understood the process both from being a Rune Knight at one point and being the daughter of one. She did not know the kitsune used to belong to the Magic Council before today. That faction had racial issues of their own since last she checked. Perhaps it was the reason why LeeAnn left, but in the end, it was good she was able to learn about the nuances and legalities behind creating a guild. While the fire mage would have to deal with all the paperwork, there was still plenty more that had to be taken care of. It was not hard to see where her concerns with the workload came from. She couldn't help but smile at her impassioned friend.

"I want a place where everyone can belong too." Atani took another sip of her tea. "I have no qualms about leaving Blue Pegasus. When you talk to Ray, you can tell him you have my support, but this guild is going to need more than just three people. I'm afraid I still don't know many people in Fiore," she frowned, "though it sounds like you've had your eye on this issue for a while. And given how widespread these problems are, I doubt it'd be hard to find others."

She had dealt with a lot of her own issues mentally. When she changed races from human to non-human, she feared what your elder brother, Hikaru, would say. Luckily, he was really infactuated with her new look and found it to be very stylish. He even considered trying to change races, despite how hard it was. She smiled thinking about how protective her elder brother was despite being absent in their lives most of the time. Hikaru did his own thing and she did hers. He was more of an independent than she was, even now they could problably consider themselves equal at this point in her life. Lately, asking for help was something she was still working on. This was the first step in the right direction. The only reason why she join Blue Pegasus was because her grandmother, Hikari Nakamura, was apart of that guild for a long time before marrying her grandfather. She recommended it to her when she was lost.

"Raymus and I don't fit in. We're not materialistic and stulish types. Even if Raymus was hiding the fact he was uncomfortable, I could tell through that. I read people pretty easily. While I try to remain peaceful, sometimes for my temper its unavoidable" she spoke.

Lector remained quiet. He had seen her temper once and vowed to never provoke it again. This was when they were at the Blue Pegasus Event. She let it through. He was busy waiting tables with her when all of it broke loose. Raymus helped her calm down since that event. They really clicked since then. Atani had no problem leaving Blue Pegaus and given her full support to the idea. Though, she did warn Lee that they would need more members than just three. This made Lee laugh a little. She was overjoyed by the fact that her friend had her support about this project. Lee gave a thumbs up at Atani. "I've got some connections to make things happen. Plus, its going to take some time to get things together correctly. In the meantime..Atani could you tell me a little bit about elven culture and literature" she spoke.

"Raymus and I don't fit in."

The words hit home. They felt like a pin through her heart. It was a feeling she could relate to all too well.

Wood Elves were not like humans. Though they physically looked much like them, save for the ears, it was hard for Atani to feel that she truly fit in Fiore: a country dominated by mankind. She could only assume the same for others who were set apart from humans. With guilds such as Blue Pegasus, that feeling of difference was exacerbated. People like Lee and Raymus were pressured into being someone they weren't. To not be comfortable in your own skin, that wasn't something anyone should experience.

With the rest of what LeeAnn said, Atani felt as if she had already given her two cents on the matter. She nodded her head in understanding, a show that she agreed with the kitsune's points and that she too felt Blue Pegasus was not a good fit for the three of them. It was likely not a good fit for others either. But neither was Fairy Tail and neither was Empyrean Divine. Dark guilds were out of the question. There was a gaping hole for light guilds in Fiore that needed to be filled. It needed to be filled with something like what Lee had in mind.

Regarding the guild, she confirmed that there were more connections lined up, which was good. The lack of interest was something Atani was worried about, but it seemed the ex-Rune Knight had it all covered. While the elf expected her friend to go on about this guild she wanted to start, the topic changed rather abruptly. Lee wanted to know more about her culture and her people's literature.

"Really?" She was shocked. "Well, hmm..." If she was being honest, literature was sparse. Most written things were either academia or poetry. Very little works of fiction for enjoyment were produced. The novelty of such a thing was something she found herself falling in love with upon arrival in mainland Fiore.

"As far as literature goes, I suppose it's mostly poetry. Elves love writing poetry and songs. We have over 10 different words for what to call them alone in our native tongue, sometimes more depending on the dialect. What else specifically did you want to know? I believe I already told you the most important aspect to our culture before about it completely revolving around nature."

A guild needed to be more than a place for mages to join for work. She wanted it to be more than just a santuary. It had to be home. Somewhere that everyone could call their home. Her visison were people using an eternal library full of information about different cultures and races. It would be a grand way to connect those who lack understanding of different cultures. It would be free for the public to use at any cost, it would be a library. She wanted to provide people a chance to get back on their feet especially those who were non-native to Fiore and non-humans.

Work was hard to come by sometimes. Blue Pegasus and Fairy Tail had their own gigs or themes. Theirs was a whole different level. She wanted to be something big. Atani was the best person or elf she knew of that would fit with literature. Lee read some, but no where near as much as Atani probably did. She seemed to be a typical bookworm, in a good sense. Though, that's what Lee assumed. She knew there was a likely chance of being entirely wrong. For all she knew, Atani could be a world famous boxer without even knowing about it. Not every was an open book like her family at times or Ragtime. "Reason why I ask, one of my other goals is to inform people about the different cultures. From what I have gathered, there aren't that many literature written by other kinds besides humans in most libraries. I want to have authentic books with true information by the people for hte people. The guild is going to have a libaray free for the public to use anytime to help give others a better understanding of other races and cultures. I dont wnat this to be another themed guild. I want this to be a source and home for others to use" she explained further. This would probaby give Atani some insight what would be going on witihn the thoughts of the hybrid.

Atani explained a bit further about elven culture. Tehy loved anyhting with nature and poetry. Songs and music sere common ways for many cultures to comminicate or wite their history in a simple form without the need for writing lengthy pamphlets about it. LeeAnn nodded to what she had said. "I figured you might have some book titles or something. I do recall you saying...wood elf right? Wood elves loving nature. Correct me if I got the wrong elf, my memory ain't the sharpest at the moment. I only ask so I dcan educate myself and others about wood elves, kitsunes, any races and/or culture as possible" she spoke.

Atani nodded her head as she listened to Lee's reasoning for her rather unusual inquiry. Evidently, she had taken notice of the fact that libraries in Fiore were filled with books written by human authors. Lee wanted to change that for her own guild. Not only would her guild's library provide a wealth of knowledge to the public, but it would inform about other races, particularly the ones who were often overshadowed by man.

"I see," she commented. "I suppose I could help with that. Wood Elves also like to write nonfiction and works of academia. It may be hard to find the original elven works not altered by humans, but I'm sure I can get my hands on something."

Saying that out loud, there were already a few spots that came to mind where she could find books translated to Fiorian. The ones she had at home were of course either written in Elvarin or Val'Elvarin, both of which were languages few humans knew. They would amount to no more than mere decoration at the guild, lest other elves decided to visit the library.

Lee continued to speak. Atani continued to sip her rosehip tea. She swallowed the liquid and couldn't help but chuckle at the kitsune who tried her best to be correct in her terminology.

"Wood Elf is right. I'm certainly no High Elf--" She didn't feel the need to mention Dark Elves, for their skin often took to shades of gray or pale violet-- "In fact, you'll hardly run into them. I would say they're even more reclusive than us. But while we tend to stray from humans due to both... moral and historical conflicts, High Elves hold themselves above all, even Wood Elves. Unless you take a trip to Elvhenair, I highly doubt you'll see one anytime soon." Perhaps ever.
