Do they exist? From the Thalevili River entry:
The river is home to a group of mostly elves, named by the residents of Santhala disrespectively as the "Water Rats", after the vermin that populates the river. These elves are members of a large extended family who travel in small numbers up and down the river and the surrounding coast lines. Some have even been, so they will tell you, to Aeruillin and the Northern Continent. They travel in small numbers, believing that you cannot be close in thought to Avá's Dream if you remain always in the place you were born - in the forest, away from other races! Urban ledgend in New-Santhala says that when questioned by a Quaelhoirhim merchant about their life style, a member of the group responded, "How can you belong to the land if you know not what it is to belong to the Sea? Can you be close to the Dreamer if you do not look upon all of Her Dream?" The Water Rats make a living from doing odd jobs, and making small items to sell. Many residents dislike the Rats because they do not pay city taxes (hence their name), yet may moor in cities and towns for weeks at a time. They are also often blamed for leaving the river bank in a mess! However, most "Water Rats" hold the River in the upmost respect.

From the Rimmerins Ring, the point of contention:
Living in the river itself, one finds the “Water Rat” elves, who travel up and down the Thaehelvil every year, and occasionally create small settlements where they rest and trade.
So - should we eliminate the Water Rats, integrate them with another tribe, leave them seperate but largely undeveloped, or put them on the table for possible devving at a later date?

I'd say these are Wren's babies, and as she plans to work on practically "all things elfy" once she gets back, this would be something she could give is some more insights eventually :)
