Male Elfling, pencil on paper.
Elflings consider themselves one of the first creatures to walk Uteria, and also claim that they gave the original names to many things. The Elves, considered cousins by the Elflings, do not hold to this belief. One should note that the terms Elves, Elf and Elfling are all human or dwarven in origin and each respective race has their own names for themselves, though elflings are quite content with keeping their common tongue name. In fact they readily accept the common tongue that they often have very illustrative surnames as Hilljumper or Stonethrower.
