History
Half-Elves are generally a split between the human and elven halves that made up their personality. Half-Elves raised in Human environs will take up human traits, the reverse applying for Half-Elves raised in Elven environs. In either, they will face hazing because of their mixed heritage, this thereby making them more introverted and shy. Once they feel comfortable around a group though, they do become more open, but still, they may be withdrawn.

Description
Half-Elves are slightly shorter than an average Human (range from 5'7" to 5'9") and are not as strongly built as one, but do look more rugged than their Elven cousins, and their features are smoother than Human, but not as smooth as an Elf. Also the eyes aren't as almond shaped as an Elf's , nor are their ears as pointed. Hair and eye color runs from Almost a whitish blond to a medium brown for hair, and pale blue to deep green for eye color, though rarely, a brown-eyed Half-Elf may be born
