With sure, fluid movements, the lightly armored elven warrior turns, cloak whirling. One gloved hand holds a rapier; the other, a hand crossbow. His skin is pale, nearly white, as is his long hair. Now that you can see his face, he doesn’t appear completely elven. His features are sharper, ears longer, and his noble visage cannot conceal the malevolence burning in his eyes.
