High Elves are the same old haughty, stratified, racist and classist assholes that you know and love from every high fantasy since Tolkien. In this universe, the high elves dominate the trading hub of Aeldrum and form the ruling class of the spires. Ruling over a multicultural (and more recently, multi-pocket-dimensional) empire, the High Elves have managed to maintain the complete disdain for "lesser" creatures (which is to say, everyone else) which propelled them to kick the shit out of them in the early days of Aeldrum.
