The main strength of the elf species is their strong mind. Even as infants, elves are capable of learning and utilizing almost endless amounts of learned facts and gained wisdom, thereby giving them an internal desire for knowledge and peace. This makes them excellent strategists and judges. No matter the situation, they will always do what is best in the name of peace, so battle and war will always be their last resort. This is why, when the vampires and sorcerers are once again at each other's throats, the elves with either be their peaceful mediators or simply will step back and allow them to fight it out. They will only get physically involved if the resulting battle or war between the vampires and sorcerers begins to disrupt the peace of everyone else in the surrounding societies.
