Today is NOT that half-elf's day. And yeah- the dude with the brown hair is a half-elf. They can come out in all sorts of varieties, depending on what genes are dominant from which parent- some can look almost completely human and some can look almost completely elvish, and some a mix between the two. Some half-elves can even have two different skintones at the same time, but that doesn't happen very often. All the same, there aren't a whole lot of half-and-halves, since most kinds prefer to keep marriage within themselves. Still, the elves at least are very tolerant and even quite accepting of people of mixed blood, as the huge thing for elves is the ability to pass on the color gene, and a little human DNA certainly won't get in the way of that.
Fun fact- the grey elf's face is borrowed from a character from another story.
Something to think about- the chapter is going to be coming to a close fairly soon, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to take Theorah's suggestion and make an info page about various parts of the Ciudan culture(s) in between chapters, and I'm going to make two- one for the end of last chapter, and one for this chapter. What do you guys want to hear about? I was thinking about doing one on elves and color. Other options are: marriage, forefighters, naming/counting years, magic, organization of NAK, or if you guys have any other suggestions, that'd be great.
