Elementals are the manifestation of the four basic elements, Earth, Air, Water and Fire into physical form. The creatures are magical in nature, sometimes appearing indistinguishable from humans and in other tales having beast-like characteristics in alignment with their respective elements.
Elves are supernatural humanoids gifted with unsurpassed beauty by human standards. The word elf means "white beings" in Germanic tongues and many legends also claim that these wild folk possess magical powers which can be used to help or hinder those they encounter. Elves are a long-lived race and sometimes associated with fairies and dwarves.
