|Manga Debut:||Chapter 1|
Elves appear in many fairy tales, poems, legends, and are rarely seen by human eyes. They are creatures who exist in the astral world, and may appear in the actual world. Such careless acts as being seen could be done on purpose, or could only be seen if one believes in elves and/or has had experiences with astral creatures. The most famous legends of Elves is one of Peekaf, which is a children's story, and King Hanafubuku.
Elves have many different powers. They are capable of healing injuries, sensing people's feelings, and some even say that they have the power to bring one happiness. They can create medicine with their dust from their wings, known as Elf Dust. Although their size generally limits their usefulness in combat, they may use a bright flash, acting as a flare to blind enemies temporarily, and carry small objects.
Long ago, Elves dwelled within various locations such as Godo's mining cave and Rosine's tree in the Misty Valley. However, in time, the Holy See Religious Order established its doctrines with the Elves forced to withdraw to the magicial island of Skellig to their homeland Elfhelm. But the areas once home to elves offer a sanctuary for those preyed upon by restless spirits, Guts having Casca placed in Godo's cave for her safety. It was only after the cave was destroyed that Puck suggested taking Casca to Elfhelm, with Guts learning that the Elvish king Hanufubuku could restore Casca's mental state.
There apparently are different races of Elves that coexist in the Astral World, with Puck and Ivalera being of the Pisky race who are descended from the Sylph and famed for their bubbly, friendly and funny-loving nature.
- The Elves appear to be influence by various types of fairies with Puck and Ivalera being pixies.
