Black elves are one of the races of elves in the world of Daventry


They are extremely ugly and evil, live underground, and are descended from maggots. They love to inflict injury and sickness on people.[1] Like other elves they have their own kings, laws, and customs, but do not live together in towns and cities.

Behind the sceneEdit

The black elves originate from Norse mythology known as the svartálfar. Some scholars think they are synonomous with dwarfs, and potentially the dark elves (dökkálfar) as well.
