The elven people always lived apart from men, under other laws and morals. However, alliances and trade between both species flourished over time.
With the fall of the Council, many sorcerers fled to the neighboring kingdom of the Elves, to find their doors closed and their arrows pointing at them. These beings did not want to mix with human disputes, much less something as corrupt as magic.
When the war ended with the victory of the Dark Wizard, the Elves sent an embassy to their castle ... from which only their mounts returned. The elves understood the message, and none of the parties contacted each other again.
Perhaps for that reason, a member of that race enters the castle; maybe he's hoping to rescue their long lost brothers or at least know their fate ...
Note: This one is a minor edit of Dutchmogul's Starfall Sentinel; I've just replaced its base and rescaled the whole model to 28mm, to make it fit better with my other remixes.
06/11/18 EDIT: Added the 22mm version, which is the proper scale for the game.
