The reclusive lythari elf or silver elf is true lycanthropes. Also known among the wood elves, as the
Silver shadows. These Elves are true lycanthropes; good aligned elves able to take lupine form (no hybrid forms). This is why the Silver Elves are called lycanthropes and
are so reclusive. While in their wolf form, the silver elves are quite beautiful. They have
pale gray or silver fur and the most intelligent looking blue or brown eyes you will ever
see. A wolf-silver leaves no impression of danger or ferocity, but rather seems very friendly, kind and
companionable. An adult wolf-silver elf is the size of a small pony and can carry a man-human ally if the need is greatly needed.
In the rare times the Silver Elves remain in their Elf form. Most times they would be in their wolf form, but in their Elf form-Lythari they are just as Beautiful and otherworldly, even for an Elf. They dress in furs, hides and other natural types of clothing. They decorate themselves with feathers, bone jewelry and other similar fashion of the ancient jewels than the oldest wood elf tribes.
They are very tall and pale skin in their Elfin form, and have light blue or green eyes. Their hair is flowing soft silver. The same color as their wolf-form.
In their wolf-form they speak in a manner that all wolves would understand, but when in their Silver Elfin form-Lythari they speak Elvish. Some can speak other races of their kin and human too. Like all elves the Silver Elves can pass through its natural surroundings, the woods or forest silently and nearly invisibly.
They dislike combat and prefer to flee rather than fighting. If they aid in Warfare at all, they
will only serve as a scout or messenger in war. But if cornered or if put in a situation to defend their own, they will fight with great skill and they do so in the wolf form. Which they prefer the most for combat. They usually only bite but if needed they will do more.
Unlike most lycanthropes, the Silver Elves -Wolf is a gentle, benevolent animal. Although they do hunt and kill in the manner as all wolves do. They neither inflict wanton violence nor attack intelligent species.
The Silver Elves-Wolfs typically are in community groups as large as 30 or more.
The typical encounter with a lythari is with a single hunter or the pack. The larger the tribal community is 30 or more with up to a dozen of younger Lythari learning to hunt.
Most Lythari's live between worlds, not dwelling on the prime material plane, but living in the forested places that can be only reached through special gates known only to themselves.
The Silver Elf's are known to be a very shy race, and preferring to remain far from civilization and even form other elves. They are a communal society and have no real leaders, its complete equality for all members of the tribe.
Specialty priests of the woodland deities.
Lythari reverse Rillifane Rallathil and other wilderness Seldarine deities.
The Silver Elves -Lythari' are interfertile and reproduce among themselves. They can also create new Lythari [Silver Elves] from being among other races in a special ritual of bonding that leaves a permanent scar resembling a wolf bite. The status of the Lythari can only be confirmed only if both silver elves that gave the wolf bite/scar and the elfin cousin agree to the transformation. And only if the secret initiation is performed.
Most all silver elves-Lythari live in groups of packs in the forest Ever meet. Some still linger in Faerun.Most still live in Magical fairylands that touch only the prime martial plane
One interesting note; If a Lythari runs with normal wolves, in their wolf form, they will be accepted in the pack as pack members, and treated with deference, while remaining outside the normal wolf pack
But the Evil Creatures such as; worgs,werewolves and most antherions such as werewolves will sense their differences and will drive them away or just slay them .
I found the Lythari Silver Elves very interesting I hope that you my reader do too..
