The Ifer'hém Elves

Image description.

The Ifer'hém, originally an offshoot of the Royal Elves, were immaculate and beautiful to behold; eyes clear and bright; of emerald and stormy greys, and hair colours ranging to a flaxen gold to a rich ebony. Their bodies were thin and had soft, supple skin; the colour of honeymilk. They had delicate features; high cheekbones, thin, expressive lips and nimble hands. As the Ifer'hém turned to the worship of the Element of Fire, their appearance began to change. Their skin too lost its richness; a pallid white began to emerge from their honeymilk complexions. Their bodies became emaciated, their skin drawn and tight over their delicate bones.  Picture drawn by Viresse.
