The Elenfar are a race of tall, slender humanoids with angled features and (most notably) long pointed ears. Their large, narrow eyes are almond shaped and canted at an angle slightly-downwards by the bridge of the nose. High cheek-bones, pale skin, and slender, dextrous fingers are also marks of a pure-blood Elenfar.
Elenfar are a long-lived race, with records showing that some members have lived for almost a thousand years. Typically, they live an average of 500 if allowed to survive to old age. While they are long lived, they are not a very populous race; females only give birth once or twice in their long lifetimes, if at all. The need for a larger population to draw labor resources from drove the Elenfar Empire to breed regularly with human females, the only known race that could produce an offspring with the Elenfar. This breeding program resulted in the creation of the Shodar.
Pureblood Elenfar are rarely seen off their homeworld. Most hold high positions within the ruling class of the Empire. Most are either military commanders, heads of corporations observing their holdings, or Inquisitors on a mission of the Emperess.
