Humans, dwarves, and ogres.
Boreans (Homo borealis)—
Cavefolk (Homo heidelbergensis)—
Homo heidelbergensis giganteus, descendants of Cavefolk. Large, brutish hominids.
Homo heidelbergensis dwarfensis, descendants of Cavefolk. Stocky, powerful hominids.
Lightelves (Homo alvinus photosophia) —
Moonelves — believe themselves to be a pure race descended from the ancestral Lightelves. Another popular theory is that they originated as hybrids between Lightelves and Darkelves.
Darkelves (Homo alvinus umbra) — believe themselves to be one of the two original branches of the elf family tree, directly descended from the ancestral Aldelves. Another popular theory is that they originated as hybrids between the Swartelves and the Moonelves, or perhapse between the Swartleves and the Nightelves.
Swartelves — descend from Earthelves.
Nightelves (Homo alvinus noctus)— believe themselves to be one of the two original branches of the elf family tree, directly descended from the ancestral Aldelves. Another popular theory is that they originated as hybrids between the Moonelves and the Darkelves.
Woodelves (Homo alvinus sylvanus)— believe themselves, in one version of their mythology, to be a pure race directly descended from the ancient Aldelves. In another version of their mythology, their race began when a male Aldelf (or possibly a Lightelf) took a Woodnymph as his bride. Another popular theory is that they descended from the Aldelves through the Earthelves. The Darkelves believe the Woodleves to be hybrids of Earthelves and Sunelves. Speak a dialect of Faerish heavily influenced by the Sylvan Dialect of the Eldertongue.
Earthelves — believe themselves to a pure race directly descended from the ancient Aldelves. Another popular theory is that they descended from the Swartelves.
Sea-elves — a type of Waterelf.
