Since the destruction of their lands, they have been rootless and nomadic people, drawn to fighting and ubale to settle to more peaceful tasks. They are intense, brooding, proud and warlike. As a result, they have earned the mistrust of other Elves of Ulthuan, but depsite this, they are among the most loyal subjects of the Pheonix King. Tales of their daring exploits are many, and it is an unusual Elf indeed who has not heard of their valour. Though they are wilder and perhaps more vicious than the rest of the High Elves, it is because of their tragic past rather than innate cruelty. Given the bitter times through which they have lived, this is a flaw that we find easy to understand.
