My original concept was that this sub-race of Elf has been corrupted as they turned their back on ‘traditional’ avenues to power and began fusing their bloodlines with draconic energies. This stirred an ancient serpent deity that began manipulating the now ‘dark’ elves into its service.
Vrael’Olo are the result of elves being corrupted by insidious influences to the point that they have developed a significant affinity with serpents. This affinity has replaced some of the typical elf traits with strange adaptations and mutations.
Vrael’Olo value their privacy and traditions, their only interaction with other civilizations is as conquerors, assassins and slavers. Vrael’Olo seek power and influence over other races they cannot overcome by force. They are adept infiltrators and masters of mis-information.
