What is an elf?

Elves are often depicted as diminutive creatures with pointed ears, long noses, and sparkling eyes. They typically have slender builds and appear to be very graceful. While they share some common features with humans, elves also have their own unique characteristics that set them apart from other people. For example, elves can move quickly and quietly through the forest or even up tall trees without making a sound. They are also masters of illusion and can perform amazing feats of magic.
