Dark Elf

Kit: Scale75
75mm White metal figure

“In Norse mythology, Svartálfar (Dark Elf) are subterranean creatures who dwell in the world of Svartálfheim, cousins of the elves of Alfheim, these swarthy creatures are most similar to the high elves, being tall and sinisterly beautiful. Their skin colour ranges from darker shades of purple to lighter shades of grey, although many groups have skin as black as night. In fact, in the twilight dark elves are virtually invisible, almost undetectable unless they desire to be seen. Some have white hair and some black, some glowing red eyes while others have white eyes seemingly without pupils, and yet others have normal appearing eyes. Eerily beautiful, these elves exude a sense of wickedness cloaked in mystery, they make superb assassins and are said by many to derive exquisite pleasure from the torture of their captives. In all fairness, it must be said that the majority of dark elves live by their own code of honour. If you bargain fairly with them, it is possible to survive an encounter with a dark elf. However, entering Svartalfheim is a risky proposition unless you are quite powerful, and even then you may well find that entering was much easier than leaving.”
