I sort of came up with the idea from living in Europe. Racism, prejudice, or whatever you want to call it is not based on skin color but on cultural differences and the country one comes from. This was a perfect window into The World. No one cares that a Human's, Elf's, Gnome's, or Dwarf's skin is darker or lighter. You're simply a Human, Elf, Gnome, or Dwarf. You either share their culture and region of origin or you don't. Another race is just that, another race ... aka another species.
Anyway, how do you like Mike's character? Does this fit your image of Dark Elves?
The Character Sheet Information:
Mike Eyedol: Mike, Florida, Half-Human/Dark Elf Shadow Assassin, Nightmare start, a best friend of Jason’s.
*Since I know Mike IRL, I never worried about describing how he looked in the Character Sheet, only inside the story when we meet each of their characters =D
