The Elves (森精種(エルフ), Erufu) are the seventh ranked race of the Exceed and were created by Kainas, the Forest God. Their homeland is Elven Gard, the largest nation on Disboard.

Though the elf country is democratic with the largest families within the council of elders, they often have slaves from other races to serve them from within the conquered territories they have claimed or from bets that have been lost, this often results in generational slave families living with their owner families for life such as Chlammy Zell lives with Feel Nirvalen. It is noted that there are currently 2 factions within Elven Gard, the council of elders and the Hero of elves, who was not given much detail other than the Hero of Elves has the support of the Elven people, while the council is trying to gain more power over the people.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

The elves have the highest affinity to magic among the Creature Form races and are often synonymous with magic. They are the only Creature Form race capable of casting multiple spells at once. This advantage has allowed them an edge in games against other Creature Form races due to their unmatched usage of magic as a way to cheat and manipulate games. Despite this, certain situations such as the video games of the Werebeasts can nullify their magical advantage and level the playing field. During The Great War, they were able to create one of the three dominating forces that ended the war. A spell called Áka Si Anse developed by their creator, Kanias. While not as strong as the E-Bomb or Heaven's Strike, it was still considered world shaping and deemed as one of the three dominating forces that ended the war.

The natural talent of a Elf is correlated by their ability to cast multiple spells at a time. Talented Elves can maintain multiple spells, becoming duo or even tri-casters; which, according to Light Novel 5, makes up the majority of the Elven nobility. However, the famous house of Nilvalen has birthed some of the finest Elves to ever exist such as Feel Nilvalen (hexcaster) and Shinku Nilvalen (octocaster); both possessing magical abilities that scrape the echelon of legend among the Elves.

History[edit | edit source]

During the Great War, they were believed to be created by Kanias, the Forest God.

The Elves and the Fairies formed an alliance in order to develop magic that could control the 'life' Ixseed with the test subject being the Phantasma Insein Nebia also known as the '"Death fog" however for unknown reasons the experiments performed on it failed and the Phantasma escaped the facility causing the Flugel to intervene and they destroyed every single facility involved in developing the Elvish Áka Si Anse was destroyed except the capitals whose facility was hidden.( The same one Riku and Shuvi visited)

After the Elves were put in an extremely exposed position the Dwarves attempted to attack the Elvish capital led by Ronnie Drauvnil and during his duel with Think Nirvalen the latter cast the Ág Ni Anse rite which disrupted the flow of spirits above the capital which caused the Flugel Jibril to fall and caused her to hurt herself and in anger she decided to destroy the entire capital by casting Heavens smite immediately a squadron of the Elvish army containing 3000 mages cast a defensive rite intertwined with all their spirits and their life force but their efforts were hopeless as Jibril easily destroyed the barrier and plundered the capital for any grimoires and even plundered the Elvish people sheltering in the capitals center.

The Dwarven fleet had been evaporated by the Heavens smite and Ronnie had lost the duel and was forced to retreat.

As Jibril plundered the capital Think Nirvalen and Nina Clive fled the city and resided in the current capital Mellwall where Think retired from her secret services and forced Nina to become the Corolla

is known that 800 years before the installment of the Ten Oaths, Jibril had single-handedly destroyed their capital city Merlin in a single strike within a fit of rage after she was knocked from the sky by an anti-flying spell placed above the capital city and hurt herself. In practical war game, the spell that knocked Jibril out of the sky turned out to be the Ág Ni Anse used by Think Nirvalen during her duel with the Dwarven leader Ronnie Drauvnil. stole their books, containing knowledge of magic, stalling the growth of their magic ability for a long time.

Form of Government[edit | edit source]

The Elves have a seemingly complex form of government with the Nirvalen family only being an upper diet member it is assumed that many families together govern Elven Gard. The top governing body of Elven Gard seems to be the Elven High Council although a singular representative has not been revealed yet.
