Journey of Embers
Half-elves are conceived of Human and Elf parentage. This mix does mean that Half-elves have shortened life expectancy when compared to their Elf parents. It is not uncommon for the Elf parent to outlive their spouse and their children. Half-elves do tend to live approximately 20 years longer than Humans.
They do tend to fall into martial pursuits but it is common, possibly due their Human upbringing, to see them in any field.
Half-elves are the only common half breeds seen in Isidora. Likely this is due to the general similarities that Elf and Human races share. Due to this they have had social struggles as most of the races consider them unnatural. There has been great stride to remove this prejudice but it is still something that they occasionally have to deal with.
