Robbing a concept from Star Trek, when asked about the ancient Elves, a Tolkien Elf replied "It is a part of our history we choose not to discuss".
He seems less knowledgeable of the great Elven philosophies and arts, but closer to nature, and a formidable woodsman. Incredibly well made, Eph. The hand fletching is a job in real scale, let alone this small. I also like that he carries a smaller, cruder bow. No steel, either. A fascinating creature.
