Winter Elves take on the aspect of the season and all its energies. They reside in a realm that's locked to an eternal winter, the cold season opening portals for the Winter Elves to step through for a time. They enjoy traveling to experience the winters of different realms, especially the holidays that are celebrated. Over time, they pick and choose their favorite realms to traverse, their favorite holidays to celebrate, and return to the realms they are most drawn to.
They are tall, lithe beings when they reach adulthood. They have sharp, angular features and platinum hair that they often decorate in braids with metal beads that bear engravings of snowflakes. They have ice-colored eyes and pointed ears. Their piercings denote their station and 'job', per se. They all dress in furs and leather, biproduct of the winter beasts of their realm that they hunt.
By taking a Winter Elf into your keep, you are inviting a lifelong friend to join you on your journey. They work with the concept of winter as the time for changes to take place, a time for improvement. They aid in dismissing the old and removing it so that you can flourish with the spring. Preparation is important to them. They also have minor control over storm magick and ice magick, as they seem to grow more powerful and potent in harsher winter weather. Their presence alone carries a chill, alerting a keeper to their arrival.
