The half-elven race began (and still continues to a small degree) as the product of relationships between humans and elves, but has developed into a true-breeding race since then. Half-elves combine human and elven traits, and as a consequence tend to be considered outsiders by both races. On the other hand, the combination of human skill with elven beauty makes them good artists and entertainers as well as well-traveled adventurers.
Half-elves stand taller than humans, yet shorter than elves, and have pointed ears. They retain the lean build and comely appearance of the elves, though their ears are less pronounced. Their skin, while fair, takes its color from their human lineage. Their appearance can vary widely, depending on which of their lineages is the dominant. This variance can often lead to social stigmas, as the more human-looking half-elves are more-easily accepted in human society, and vice versa.
Half-elves in Golarion
Although large parts of Golarion are unknown, it is safe to assume that half-elves live everywhere where their parent races co-exist. Few settlements have a majority of half-elves in their populations. One exception is the town of Erages in Kyonin, where they exist separately from the full-blooded elves of that nation.
