Half-Alv is one of the eight races players can choose from in Elder Tale. Half-Alvs have a high affinity for ancient magical ruins.

When Elder Tale was a game, a player with this race could occasionally have storyline bonuses.

Although the Alv race is extinct due to the war, they historically intermarried with humans because the last remaining Alvs were kept as slaves, and a Half-Alv child is sometimes born into a human family due to the emergence of recessive genes. Half-Alvs naturally have difficulty conceiving children, and a child born to two Half-Alv parents may not be Half-Alv themselves, making them a slowly declining race.

The birth of a Half-Alv is viewed as an ill omen by People of the Land, and they often face persecution from an early age. In the rural countryside, they may be forced to leave their villages, while in noble families, they may be kept away from society as a mark of shame.

However, because they are physically almost identical to humans, and have high magical prowess, many Half-Alvs move to large cities to blend in. In magical research institutions, they may even get prestige for their abilities.

Physically, they are almost identical to humans. Their eyes are somewhat beadier, but the only sure-fire way to identify one is with the tattoo-like mark on their tongues in the form of the Alv emblem. Because of this, many Half-Alvs detest being asked to show their tongues.[1]


Half-Alvs have the sole ability to operate the magical apparatuses left behind by the Alvs, though that doesn't necessarily mean they know how the devices work. Because of their innate magical abilities, they are best-suited for Healer and Mage classes.
