Wrong. Timmain explained, in the end of the original quest, that the "coneheads" had SPIED upon the humans of that world of two moons and they DETECTED that the humans worshipped and had LEGENDS about beings with THAT appearance.

Once more, my conclusion is that this "elf" form comes literally from.. NOWHERE.

Nope. They can CHOOSE how deeply they change themselves.
Even as deep as genetically so.


Making them the most incredible shapechangers of the universe, potentially.

Unless their magic fails them.

This may be the point, PC.

ALL Coneheads are able to change to a genetical level (more or less deep) within the magical aura of the Palace.

ONLY Timmain was able to do so in the magic-hostile environment of the World of Two Moons.

Ok, I'll be a bit more specific, they choose the shape of their faces, the colour of their hair, the colour of their eyes etc. randomly. One conehead looks just like the other. Afterwards, some had red hairs, other had white hair. Randomly.

I'm pretty sure, Wendy or Richard said somewhere, that there is not going to be a human-elf hybrid, since Timmain and the wolf was a one time only thing and other high ones or elves can't shape down to the genetic level

They DID say that.

However, considering they also recently allowed Shenshen's experiment...
Considering that, in the "Rebels" and "Jink" series, we see humans with elf-like mental powers...


I would not be SO sure.

What if Redlance encountered Baby Groot from "Guardians of the Galaxy 2"?

What if Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and Sylvester the cat are descended from elves?

I won't post pictures, but you can look them up online.

Bugs, Porky and Sylvester stand upright, talk and have somewhat human anatomy, as though each were a cross between an animal and an intelligent creature. (Bugs and Sylvester have fur, while Porky wears clothes.)

Their proportions differ from both humans and animals. They have large eyes in proportion to their heads, and large heads in proportion to their bodies. All three have pointed ears, with Porky's ears being the most elf-like.

None of them seem to age. Porky's been around since 1935. They recover quickly from injuries that would kill or permanently maim humans, suggesting they either have self-healing powers or have access to an Elfin healer.

While they display no specific magic powers, each of them seem capable of occasionally defying the laws of physics. Examples include teleportation and levitation.

I was reading an article about self-images and mirrors. Most people can recognise their own faces best, because it's the face they are most familiar with. However, there was a time without mirrors and people couldn't really know what they look like. Sure, you could try to see your own reflection in water, but the image would be dark, because your head is blocking the light. That's the whole reason Narcissus drowned.

Sooo... I guess most elves could ask another elf to send him or her a vision of his or hers own appearance. "What do I look like?" But what about elves who don't send? Or those, who live alone? Do Go Backs have a different self-image than Wolfriders? Did the self-image of the Sun Folk change with the process of learning how to send*? Does Two-Edge knows his own face?


*Maybe the Sun Folk had polished metal mirrors. However, even though they are better than water reflections, they still aren't that good.

Good question. I Corinthians 13:12 refers to the poor quality of mirroring devices two thousand years ago. Go-Backs might have been able to see their reflection occasionally in smooth ice.

I think, in one of the novels, a High One tried to make glass, but the results weren't useful. A skilled rockshaper must be able to make a mirror out of some kind of mineral.

It would be funny if Elves could use other Elves to send selfies (Elfies?)

If the Holt is a willow tree, do Elves step outside and chew on the bark when they have headaches or fevers?

Not usually. Redlance has made sure that everyone has some "inside bark" right at their sleeping corner!

What the fuck kinda hair-product does Korafay use? She spends basically all her time underwater, yet is able to maintain her hair's crazy volume.

just read through the whole original arcs and the special..pretty much up til before Shard's war, and i had one specific question, but got a couple more from reading through this thread.

Main question: not so silly, but meaningless....what happened to Leetah's velvet? the one Moonshade implied would keep her in mends for decades, if not centuries? did it rot? did Cutter get rid of it and keep it a secret? IT WAS SO PRETTY. why do we never see bits and pieces of it in Leetah's new outfits?

so...elves can tan. elves can be dark skinned. does this mean elves can have freckles? and why do we never see a canon freckled elf? why did NONE of the wolfrider's develope freckles or any skintone change after settling in Sorrows End?
