Älvor (elves) are beautiful girls or young women with flowers in their hair and insect wings. They can be seen dancing through the mist over meadows during sunset and sunrise, and they will bid passing men to join them.

✩ Gandalf’s staff appears to be a natural piece of wood, but the crown of the shaft holds something supernatural. Within the crown, the wood has grown around a hollow, white lattice-shaped bulb. The lattice is vaguely Elven in design, and holds a great power. At Gandalf’s command, he can cause the crown to illuminate and light his way at night, or to spark a blue flame to ignite fire. The staff is also imbued with a great strength, allowing Gandalf to shatter stone with one strike.
