Stone elves have white skin, pointed ears, and black lips. Their legends claim that they were once carefree and selfish elves who were magically cursed, but they now accept their lives as an improvement over the emotion that had previously led to their ruin.
Stone elves show no emotion, and have the appearance of being eternally calm. Their discipline and their mental strength have made it possible to suppress or rid a stone elf of such a burden.
On average, stone elves live to be approximately 1200 years old, and as such they have a different view on matters than humans and other short-lived races. Patience is easier to learn for them, and it is a common belief that most conflicts resolve themselves with time.
Few stone elves experience the desire to leave their home community, but often the quest for knowledge takes one all over the lands. These quests can take several hundred years. Most stone elves follow the career path of one parent, with the goal of contributing to the community as a whole.
The specifics of a stone elf society will differ, however it is always based upon a logical format. Typically, the culture will arrange itself into houses and elders, which can manage parts of the community rather than every issue requiring the attention of every adult; this particularly happens in any stone elf community that reaches any real size.
Marriages are carefully considered, and require compatible traits and logical reasons for the pairing that can work to the couple’s advantage their entire lives. This is essential, because during the marriage, the two bond mentally in a way that can never be broken. Role-playing a stone elf is no easy task; in fact, it is probably the hardest race to play. It can be mentally draining to watch yourself for any sign of emotion and repress it.
Stone elves have a natural affinity for celestial magic and make excellent celestial casters. Although there are of course healers in their society, most stone elf casters are celestial. Stone elves, like biata, have spent years honing mental skills and as such can perform certain mental mind abilities. These abilities are all completely role-playing in nature
