The Elven Race are one of the most ancient and powerful of all the races of the Warhammer world. They are tall, slender humanoids who are inherently magical and live for millennia. Compared to humans, Elves are tall, fair-skinned, and slender. Most art shows them with high cheekbones and slightly angular faces and slanted eyes.
When the Dark Elves launched a attack on the High Elves, their leader recalled the Elven forces from the Old World to deal with the Dark Elves. However, some High Elf colonists living in the Old World refused to leave as they had grown attached to their new home. Without the protection of the High Elf military, these colonists were vulnerable to attacks from Greenskins and Beastmen, as well as Dwarfs. Over time they retreated further and further into the mysterious enchanted forest of Athel Loren, where the now so-called Wood Elves stay till this day.
