Re: Fae Identity Crisis
I wouldn't put it past the fae and the elven peoples to be intermingling and interbreeding. Don't mistake me, they are absolutely different types. But crossbreed kin are absolutely possible. I've met quite a few.
I would say go with your gut feeling on their race or speices. If they FEEL more like a form of elven people to you then they likely are.
Incidently, not all fae have wings either. Many of the creatures we would consider fae don't resemble the "people with wings" appearance at all.
