What exactly makes an Elf an Elf?
(What is the definition of an Elf?)

I am answering random questions today about world building, over on Reddit and decided to take my answers from there and expand upon them even further over here. So that's what this page is. Me rambling on about various aspects of world building techniques I use when writing the Quaraun series. The questions I am answering are embedded here. Clicking the link in the embedded question will take you to the original Reddit page where you can see the original answer along with other people's answers. If you wish to comment, you can do so on the Reddit page where a place to do so is provided.

What exactly makes an elf an elf? from worldbuilding

If you look up actual folklore (Elves before the invention of the Fantasy novel), the traditional Elf society was thought to be a type of "fallen angel", not quite as evil as demons. They actually originate from the Bible (Elves are Hebrew mythology, and known as a type of 6 winged Seraphim that had it's wings cut off to brand it as a sinner for having had sex with humans) and were originally called "The Watchers" or "Grigori Angels" Elves were considered a type of Faerie, but were seen as less evil, less blood thirsty then Faeries.

Most Elf mythology tells of their society being cast out of heaven and their wings cut off (an Elf being an archangel who's wings were cut off). They had their wings cut off because it was forbidden for Angels to have sex with Humans, and a wingless Angel, known as an Alfar (Elf) or Grigori (Watcher) was how one could identify an Angel that had fathered Nephilum (half-Elves)

The original story of Elves comes from the Bible. It's the story of Noah. (You'll need a Bible from BEFORE 1611 to find the full story, as King James removed 77 books from the Bible and more then 700 chapters from the books not removed. You will want to read the Books of Enoch, Macabees, Tobias, Nag Hamid, and others from that set.)

In the original Bible story of Noah (the one King James removed) the Angels road on Unicorns and battled Dragons, then some celebrated by kidnapping & raping Human women. Angels began taking hoards of women hostage, and their half breed children became viscous warlords who were slaughtering Humans. To save the Human race and stop the Angels from eating Humans and breeding with Humans, he sent the flood and had Noah build the ark, etc. The Genesis version of the story cuts out the Battle of Heaven and the Fall of One Third of the angels.

In Medieval Times (800 to 1400), it was believed that the Alfar (Elves) had survived the flood by hiding in caves beneath mountains, and that they continued to come down out of the mountains to kidnap and rape women.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elf says: "Elves are prominently associated with sexual threats, seducing people and causing them harm."

In Bible times they were called Angels, in Medieval times they were called Alfar (Elves), in Renaissance Times they were called Faeries, in modern times they are called Pleiadians aliens (aka The Nordics) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordic_aliens

Because they were "The Sons of God" they had the ability to control the weather and could kill people with lightening bolts or tornadoes (read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah - the see what a transvestite ArchAngel/Elf did to 2 cities when the men tried to rape him - he went on a rampage and murdered 300,000 humans by causing brim stone and fire to fall on the men of the city to punish them for raping him.)

They are also attributed with invention of swords, knives, bow/arrows, embroidery, beads, make-up, jewelry, and prostitution. (See Ecclesiaticus, Maccabees, and the Books of Enoch - note none of those books are in the KJV you need a bible printed before 1611)

It is because of their god-like abilities to control the weather, that in Medieval times they were described as wizards and wielders of magic.

Tolkien based the Elves in Lord of the Rings off of this mythology.

Gary Gygax, based his Elves (Dungeons and Dragons) off Tolkien's Elves.

Most Fantasy novels today base their Elves off a combination of Tolkien and Gygax and never once look at the original folklore or try to base Elves off the original stories about them in the Bible and Medieval texts.

In the original folklore, they were always males, and there was no such thing as a female Elf, thus why they had sex with humans to create half-Elves (the half Elves were called Nephillum) and they were seen by humans as sex crazed monsters who raped women and ate men.

The actual history of ancient Elf folklore is fascinating. They were serious bad asses, with viscous tempers and quick to off any human that pissed them off with nothing more then the wave of a hand. I'd actually like to see more people use old pre-Tolkien Medieval style Elves in their novels more often, because I think they are way more interesting and complex then the way over used and extremely watered down Tolkien versions.


What exactly makes an Elf an Elf, in the Quaraun series? 

You know, I've never really stopped and sat down to think about this.

Quaraun started out as a character I played in AD&D SpellJammer. That said, he's a Moon Elf from Outer Space (an Alien Elf or a Space Elf) who'd been attacked by Illithids (Mind Flayers) and is slowly going insane as the Illithid larvae eats his brain and becomes him.

However, long before that I was writing a fanfiction series called "The Bride of Sesshomaru" on FanFiction.net. Sesshomaru being a Yoaki, which is a type of Elf-like Demon in Japanese folklore.

And even longer ago before that I wrote The Twighlight Manor series about a family of human-eating Elf-like quasi-vampires from out of space trapped on Earth, and bemoaning the loss of their planet that burned up when the sun super nova, and the loss of their leader "The Grand High Emperor of The Triple Planets".

In 2012 FanFiction.net had a ToS change and deleted the stories of some 11,000 members, including The Bride of Sesshomaru series.

That same year, my game group changed campaigns.

At this same time period, fans of the TMseries were asking me to write about the Emperor who was often mentioned but had never made an appearance in the series.

The Quaraun series, came about as a result of me talking the Bride of Sesshomaru series (a set of 130 short stories), removing all the copyrighted characters, replacing them with the TMseries characters, and then taking Lord Sesshomaru and replacing him with Quaraun. 

The end result of which is Quaraun is the Grand High Emperor of the TMseries and The Quaraun series is the prequel to the TMseries, which tells the life of the emperor often mentioned, but never seen in the TMseries.


In the TMseries the people are called Flamites aka The People From The Flaming Planet.

All of the Elves in the Quaraun series are Space Elves. There are no Elves who are native to Earth.

Three groups/races/tribes escaped the Planet of Flame before it's demise:

  • The Trailkites (aka Wild Elves or Blood Elves)
  • The Parytheans (aka Wood Elves or Common Elves)
  • The Ecrodons (The True Elves aka High Elves or Moon Elves & Sun Elves)

The Trailkites (aka Wild Elves or Blood Elves)

The Trailkites were divided into two groups: The Red Trailkites and The Blond Trailkites. Each of whom divided off into small clans.

The Trailkites were viscous, wild, savage, and blood thirsty. They set out to slaughtering all the rest, and once they arrived on Earth, found Humans to be tasty.

In the TMseries, it is said the the Human race created the vampire mythology to explain these viscous alien men who hunted them at night.

While they are not "true" vampires (an undead person who feasts on the blood and flesh of the living), the Trailkites are often refereed to by Humans as being Vampires or Vampire Aliens From Outer Space.

In the Quaraun series they are known as "The Wild Elves" or "Blood Elves".

While prominent in the Twighlight Manor series, particular note is primary character General Tavey, the Trailkites/Wild Elves/Blood elves are rarely mentioned in the Quaraun series.

They feature prominently in Zebulon's Captive and are seen infrequently in random other novels, but for the most part they are not often used in the Quaraun series, due to their living mostly in warmer regions, while Quaraun himself, is a native of Quebec and rarely travels outside of Canada or New England.

The Parytheans (aka Wood Elves or Common Elves)

The Parytheans are known as "The Wood Elves" in the Quaraun series, and are red/brown skinned with black eyes and black hair. They resemble Native Americans and based off Maritime Native American tribes.

They are what most people think of when one thinks Forest Elf or Nature Elf.

The Common Elves rarely have an interest in magic, book learning, or technology and are hunter gathers. The Common Elves are "less refined" not caring about building cities. They live in small tribes or clans and move seasonally, following herds.

The Common Elves and Wild Elves frequently intermarry, resulting in many sub-types, mixed races, and cultures with in the two groups.

While prominent in the Twighlight Manor series, particular note is primary character Colonel Faunte', the Parytheans/Wood Elves/Common Elves are rarely featured as primary characters in the Quaraun series. Though they do appear in most every novel in the series, however, any Wood Elf to walk into the story will often quickly be killed and eaten by King Gwallmaiic/Unicorn/The Elf Eater of Pepper Valley (Quaraun's Lich lover)

The Ecrodons (The True Elves aka High Elves or Moon Elves & Sun Elves)

Both primary Elves of the Quaraun series (Quaraun and his half-Elf lover GhoulSpawn) are Ecrodons/High Elves. 

The Ecrodons are an albino race whose history I wrote in more detail HERE. They are racist radicals, similar to Nazis and Ku Klux Klan, believing in purity of blood and the eradication of all life that is not them. Centuries of inbreeding and incest drove them mad.

The Ecrodons eventually broke off into 2 tribes, one moving south and mixing with others, resulting in their skin becoming darker and their hair yellow, while the more radical ones moved north and inbreed themselves into a race off all albinos. The dark tribe became the Sun Elves while the Albino tribe became the Moon Elves.

The Sun Elves are Lutinos and have neon yellow hair, pale skin, and glowing yellow eyes.

The Moon Elves are Albinos and are white skinned, white haired, and have ice blue eyes with pink pupils.

The Ecrodons inter-married another race of aliens known as The Crystonites. The half-breed children of these unions were called The Ratzins.

All Ratzins resulted from one union, when The Grand High Emperor of the Triple Planets, murdered all the Chrystonites, save Empress Glacious, whom he kept alive, forcing her to watch the deaths of her husband and children, after she murdered his wife and children, before he then raped murderess, resulting in the birth of the first Ratzin: Dr. Gwanneesh Vangoneese Swanzen. (This event is what is known throughout the series as "The Battle of Ongadada"). All Ratzins are descendants of Dr. Vangoneese. Dr. Vangoneese is Quaraun's youngest son.

Technically, only the Ecrodons are actually Elves, thus the term "True" Elves is often applied to them.

They did not originate on the Burning Planet and instead came from a completely different solar system.

They are a seperate species, not related to either the Trailkites or the Parytheans.

Because they are a different species, the High Elves are not capable of sexually reproducing with the Common Elves or the Wild Elves.

Earth is their 3rd home.

While the High Elves call themselves "High" Elves because they crowned themselves as rulers of the planets, other races, call them "High" Elves because of their excessive drug use.

Physically Ecrodons are smaller then Humans and have hollow bird-like bones that break easily.


Basically, the Elves of the Quaraun series, are a race of very savage, often blood-thirsty, frequently cannibalistic, and very incestuous, Human-like aliens who are the last survivors of a dead planet, and are fighting to survive on Earth, a planet they do not belong on and are invaders of.

While they have "magical abilities", they are not truly magical beings. They possess the ability to communicate with each other in a quasi-telepathic method via a hive mind. They possess slight psyonic powers and are able to levitate briefly, and can levitate objects.

Only the priests/wizards are truly magical and spend two or three centuries training and learning to manipulate the world around them. Wizards are feared for their ability to control the weather, cast illusions, and call up the dead. All magic is done by mind control and requires intense focus. Wizards meditate for hours, sometimes days on end to absorb the mental energy of those around them and harness the life force of those around them to control anything and everything that is their will to control.

The rigors of training are detrimental to the mind and most wizards of any great skill, have gained that skill at the expense of their sanity. The more powerful the wizard, the more deeply insane they are.

While Humans are able to learn some of the skills of wizards, the life span of a Human is too short to allow them to learn any advanced magic skills. Elves live about 500 years and have much more time to study magic. Also, Elves have the inborn psychic powers that allow them to learn magic faster. Thus why Elves are proficient in magic.

Many of the High Elves use drugs as a way to enhance their magic.

Some (like Quaraun) using opium to mellow out and aid in lengthy meditations, while other Elves (like GhoulSpawn) use psychedelics (often LSD) to help them see "gateways" or "portals" to other realms that can not be seen without said drugs.


The Trailkites and Paryetheans are the "Common Elves" while the Ecrodons and Ratzins are the "High Elves".

The High Elves are extremely arrogant, obsessed with purity, and believe themselves to be directly descended from the gods/creators of the universe. They obsessively learn magic, mostly out of a desire to become more god-like.

A few High Elves (like Quaraun and GhoulSpawn) are not driven by power, but rather are more "tree hugging, nature loving hippies".

GhoulSpawn (a time travelling teenager/half-Elf from the 1970s) is a roving animal rights activist, a member of PETA, and a boycotter of Proctor & Gamble. He wears a coat, with dozens of pockets, each pocket being a bag of holding, and he spends much of his days rescuing animals, hiding them in his pockets and finding them homes.

While Quaraun (a full blooded Elf wizard from the 1400s) is obsessed with protecting plants, tress, flowers, and especially roses from the decimation of the "Earth's parasites" (Quaraun refers to Humans as parasites and does not see them as sentient-thinking beings. He often refers to police officers as "the blue monsters".)

The High Elves tend to prance around in sparkly elegant robes, like something you'd expect to see Liberace or Barbara Cartland be wearing.

For those wondering... 

Quaraun's pink wardrobe is based of Liberace's pink feather capes:



GhoulSpawn's green coat is based off the green coat Liberace is seen wearing here:

How are the cultures of your world's races influenced by biological sex?

Are any of your world's races severely sexually dimorphic or asexual?

Are there any races in your world whose male/female birthrate isn't 50/50?

Do the women exhibit physical features and psychological tendencies that we might consider more masculine, and vice versa with men?

How do these traits affect the structure of that race's society and their culture?


How are the cultures of your world's races influenced by biological sex? from worldbuilding

For some unknown reason that I have never made an attempt to explain, either in the novels themselves or in the worldbuilding process... Elves are about 90% male and 10% female, with the females dying very young (rarely living past 200) and the males living very old (often more then 500) and very few females being born to replace the ones dying off.

Basically the only explanation the books ever say is: "The Elves were fast becoming extinct. It used to be folks said they were surprised to see a Moon Elf alive, now they said they were surprised to see any Elves at all. Elves were becoming rare, but no one knew why."

The Persian Elves of EldQuest

Throughout the series there are hints to the fact that males lose interest in sexual activity and simply cease to make any attempt to reproduce after about 300 years of age.

Mentions are made of the fact that Elves commonly give birth to male twins, but rarely give birth to any females at all, both facts resulting in the high male to low female ratio.

If you start to compare the Elves in the Quaraun series to Elves in other series, you start to see a heavy influence from the Graphic Novels "ElfQuest" of the 1980s.

Including the Persian characters like Quaraun, and black characters like Unicorn, both of which were influenced by the black and Persian Elves in the ElfQuest series.

One thing you see, that is duplicated almost identically from the ElfQuest series is the polyamorous relationships between Elves.

Often the Quaraun stories reference the fact that multiple males will live together and share a single female who is wife to all of them. (My main character has 2 male lovers and 1 female, the 4 of them all bedding together.)

The black Elf from ElfQuest, who acted as the inspiration for BoomFuzzy the Unicorn in the Quaraun Series

All of them sleep together in a single bed, all of then snuggled up together. It is not uncommon for a family group to have 5 to 10 males and 2 to 4 females, all of them classifying each other as the husbands and wives of each.

There will usually be one male more dominate than the rest who takes to role of head/leader/protector of the family and looks out for the rest (this one dominant male may also refer to ALL of the others in his group as his wives - both the females and the males and this one male will likely have sex with the other males in addition to the females, though the other males will only have sex with the females.)

(My main character by the way, is NOT the dominate male in his family unit and is in fact the least dominate, most submissive of the group.)

When asked by Humans/etc how they know who the father of the children is, the Elves just shrug and say something to the effect of:

"No one really notices who is cuddled up with who, just as long as every one is together, it's all good." (Quaraun himself, says this frequently.)

If forced to have to declare a father, they'll all point to the dominate/leader male of their group, wither he is the biological father of the children or not.

Humans in the series, tend to look at Elves and see them as "earthy" or "overly sexual" because of the multi-partner family units they live in.

An ElfQuest Family Unit


The Elves look at Humans and point out that it is the Humans who have trouble being faithful to their spouses, and Elves point out that the whore houses are filled with prostitutes precisely because Humans are strange by only having 1 wife. They also point out that there is no such thing as a prostitute in Elf culture.

Though the polyamorus relationships of the Elves often results in Human characters saying the Elves are perverted or immoral, in actuality adultery, cheating, or sexual relationships outside of the family unit is rare to the point of being almost unheard of, with the Elves of each family group forming strong bonds with each other.

The Elves in turn, find the Human practice of 1 male with 1 female to be odd and the Elves are often troubled by this. Many Elves comment on it and use it as "proof" that Humans are very isolated and selfish creatures incapable of true compassion, prone to jealously, and over all too much ruled by petty emotions.

The Elves tend to be very "Spock-like" thinking logically and suppressing emotions.

The calendar picture mentioned below

Also, Elves have the ability to form a "hive mind" method of sharing their emotions with each other, so that when one Elf in the family unit feels happy, all the others immediately feel happy with him.

If one member of the family becomes sick or wounded, all of the members of the family unit feel it as well and suffer with him. If any member of the family unit dies, the others mourn deeply and may together die from grief at the lose of a part of themselves.

In essence, each family unit becomes like the Man Of War Jellyfish which is actually thousands of tiny jellyfish that all stuck together to create one giant jellyfish. (In fact, the Man of War Jellyfish is where I got the idea to create this type of family unit for my Elves.)

Also, I remember reading ElfQuest years ago, back when it was new, and I remember the Elves living in these large families with multiple spouses all curled up together in bird-like nests at night... there was one calendar picture the artists did that has forever stuck in my mind - it was of all the Elves - about 7 of them, all curled up together asleep.

The title was something like "Safe and Happy Together". It just stuck in my head. I was like: "THIS is what all Elves should be like." I remember that polyamorus aspect of the ElfQuest Elves, really made the Elves stand out as not Human.

Something that has always bothered me about Elves in a lot of Fantasy is the fact that Elves seem to be just Humans with pointy ears. Nothing ever really sets them apart from Humans.

So when I was creating my Elves, I just kept thinking: What makes an Elf an Elf? How are Elves different then Humans? Why write Elves when I could write Humans? What makes an Elf different from a Human. And I just kept remembering that old ElfQuest picture of all the Elves happily sleeping together in a big pile of bodies all wrapped around each other, every one hugging every one else, and them all looking so happy and content together like that.

I ended up developing this whole theory that the Elf sex life, reproductive habits, and family unit was dramatically different from what we as Humans are used to, and ended up with my Elves based off that.

Also: The males are extremely feminine, while the females are far more masculine.

  • Male Elves a beautiful, dainty little things.
  • Female Elves are big and burly.
  • Males Elves are much smaller then the females.
  • Female Elves are up to 6 feet tall (183 cm)
  • Male Elves are rarely more the 5 feet 9 inches (178 cm), with most being much shorter. (My main character is 5 feet 6 inches/ 170 cm.)
  • Males often have very long thin ears, 8 to 12 inches long (20 to 30 cm), giving them a very rabbit-like appearance.
  • Females often have small points on the ends of their ears, that is barely noticeable as being different from Human ears.
  • Males tend to be very slim and not very strong.
  • Females on the other hand tend to be on the well rounded to chubby size and are much more physically stronger then the males.
  • Male Elves have an interesting physical feature - their bones are hollow and bird like, making them very light-weight, and able to walk very silently. Their bones break easily.
  • Female Elves on the other hand have thick strong bones.
  • Males tend to be skittish and nervous, quick to run away like a scared rabbit.
  • Females can be fierce, viscous, and are highly protective of their male lovers.
  • Males are more likely to be at home studying, playing music, sewing fancy clothes, etc. (My main character likes to embroider and grow roses.)
  • Females are more likely to be doing the hunting, gathering, harvesting, fighting/going off to war.
  • Males usually prance around daintily in long flowing silk robes.
  • The females are prone to wearing more practical and serviceable clothes often of thick wools, leather or fur.

I love this. My own setting features a race that is primarily polyamorous. In my own setting, females are rare, so it's often 3 or 4 or more males, to 1 female, but each family may have as many as 10 or more males and 4 or more females, with all of them being a spouse to each of all of the others. The race is also bi-sexual in addition to being polyamorous, so it's not just all the males having sex with just the 1 female. Like yours, they take marriage very seriously and cheating/adultery is practically unheard of.

Usually you only see polyamorous relationships used in poorly written Erotica. It's not often used as a serious element in more mainstream genres. I like that you are using a family unit set up of this type. It's definitely something I'd like to see more of in Fantasy settings.

On Writing The Quaraun Series



.

.



The Quaraun Series On Amazon:

I am wondering why has Amazon moved the Quaraun books to the category "Transgender Romance" and also "Gay Erotica"? The base story is a deeply depressed, suicidal, drug addict Elf who's lover commit suicide and he's trying not to do the same. It's an old Elf in a tavern, monologuing a lot of flashbacks and back story scenes of his youth. These stories are dark, bloody, angsty, full of drug use, murder, rape, Medieval torture, mental/physical/emotional abuse, and references to depression and suicide - no romance in it, unless you count the occasional (and usually brutally violent) rape scenes that show up in nearly every volume - sorry - no clue what Amazon is thinking or why they moved these to Romance and Erotica, but these books are NOT even close to being Romance or Erotica on any level at all. When I published these books I put them in "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi". If they show up in any category other then "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi", it's because Amazon put them there without my authorization or approval.

Reacting To Old Orchard Beach's
White Power Gay Hating Over Reaction Ban
Of The Quaraun Series:


The 4 door white truck continues to sit at the end of my drive way (146 Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine) near every night around sunset, reeving it's engine and squealing it's tires, with the driver yelling anti-gay threats and obscenities out the window. He continues to do the same thing at my dad's apartment building (Biddeford Maine) a few times a week, usually in mid to late afternoon time. He continues to follow me to shopping to various stores in various towns throughout the states.

Phrases he yells from the truck include:

"Kill or be killed remember Saco Shaws all transsexuals are alike"

"I keep a gun under the seat of my truck, I'm gonna use it to shoot you in the head, you transvestite freak"

if cars are going by he yells to them: "that thing is Ken's son, look at how's it's dressed; it's insane, it has autism, we can't allow that thing and it's gay cars in our family friend town of Old Orchard Beach"

He often babbles deranged ramblings about something he calls "the gay-pocalypse", raving lunacy about how "all the gays are gathering" on his doorstep. He raves some crazy nonsense about how Armageddon is coming and the war to end all wars will be "the gays against the Christians" and Christians have to be ready to "kill the gays"

My car is the Autism Awareness Car and had 2.5million marbles glued to it (I have Autism - savant - Kanner's syndrome) he claims tat my car "is gay" because of what it looks like. My car has been vandalized several dozen times, including to have the tires slashed 7 times in 6 months.

After dark often around 10PM, he stands at the end of the logging road across the street from me and shoots at my motohome (in February 2014 he shot holes in my neighbour's barn while doing this). I have video footage of 3 of his shootings at me here:  https://youtu.be/NUebzJ9sz9U and here: https://youtu.be/C4dZbgG-Smw

This has gone on since August 2013 now, in addition to all the vandalism, hate crimes, pet beheadings, etc that has happened, including the bomb that blew up our house in 2006.

As you know, that whole time I had not been able to get a plate number on the truck. He as just here again, and I just realized why I could not get a plate number... there are no plates on the truck, either on the front or on the back. However, as he was driving away today... I noticed, there is a plate, stuck up in the back window of the truck, where it can barely be seen, deliberately obscured from view behind a silver tool box.

On Writing The Quaraun Series



.

.



The Quaraun Series On Amazon:

I am wondering why has Amazon moved the Quaraun books to the category "Transgender Romance" and also "Gay Erotica"? The base story is a deeply depressed, suicidal, drug addict Elf who's lover commit suicide and he's trying not to do the same. It's an old Elf in a tavern, monologuing a lot of flashbacks and back story scenes of his youth. These stories are dark, bloody, angsty, full of drug use, murder, rape, Medieval torture, mental/physical/emotional abuse, and references to depression and suicide - no romance in it, unless you count the occasional (and usually brutally violent) rape scenes that show up in nearly every volume - sorry - no clue what Amazon is thinking or why they moved these to Romance and Erotica, but these books are NOT even close to being Romance or Erotica on any level at all. When I published these books I put them in "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi". If they show up in any category other then "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi", it's because Amazon put them there without my authorization or approval.
