Sun elves, or gold elves, are famed for their command of both arcane and divine magic, which exceeds that of any other living race. Works of elven high magic thousands of years old still survive in the hidden refuges of sun elves. Sun elves have bronze skin, hair of golden blond, copper or black, and eyes of green or gold. They favor contemplation, lore and study over the quick games and light-hearted songs of other elves, but seem to embody the unearthly beauty, grace and presence of elven folk.
