Astos PSP

Astos-map The Dark Elves are a race from Final Fantasy. They are somewhat related to the Elves inhabiting Elfheim, and are led by Astos. The Dark Elves once attempted to usurp control of Elfheim, but Astos was defeated by the Warriors of Light.

In addition to Astos, the Warriors of Light fight some Dark Elves as regular enemies. Dark Elves come in three forms: the Dark Wizard, the Dark Fighter and the Devil Wizard. Despite the Dark Fighter's name, both types of Dark Elf are magically inclined.

A Dark Elf also appears as a boss in Final Fantasy IV, with the same design as Astos.

Dark elves originate from Norse mythology, but have since become a fantasy trope. In Norse mythology dark elves are one of two contrasting types of elves; dark elves dwell within the earth and are most swarthy. Moriquendi is a fictional race of elves in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. Drow, or dark elves, is a fictional subrace of elves in Dungeons & Dragons and novels by R. A. Salvatore set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe. Dark elves also exist in the Warhammer fantasy series, and Dunmer is a type of dark elf in the Elder Scrolls fantasy series. Dark Elves also appear as one of the Myrran races in the strategy/fantasy game Master of Magic.
