Dark elves are one of the three known ancient elf races, one of the oldest on Norrath. They are known by the elf word, Teir'Dal, a word meaning "elf of the abyss." They have existed for ages in the dark underworlds of Norrath, and are the children of Innoruuk.
It is said that Innoruuk, as part of his retribution against the gods that did not invite him to create a race on Norrath as part of their pact against Veeshan, kidnapped the leaders of Tunare's creations, the first elven king and queen, and tortured them over the span of 300 years, tearing them apart and rebuilding them in his own twisted image.
Whatever their true origins may be, there is no doubt that the dark elves have embraced Hate as a guiding force in their lives. Hate, when disciplined, can make one strong and focused. When inspired in others, it can be a means to corrupt and control them. The practice of necromancy (magical power over death and the dead), which the Teir'Dal see as Innoruuk's gift to their race, is very much at the core of their culture.
Dark elves look down upon all other races, but in the past have made use of trolls and ogres as evil pawns. While ogres have regained their former intellect and are no longer prone to Teir'Dal manipulation, dark elves continue to look for ways to manipulate anyone they can.
Their race's traditional capitol city is Neriak, City of Hate. The Dead, a group with necromantic leanings led by Queen Cristanos Thex, took control of Neriak after the War of Fay. Queen Cristanos is the queen corrupted by Innoruuk so long ago. A group known as the Thexians plots its own domination of Neriak as well.
黑暗精灵传统的都城是尼瑞克，憎恶之城。在仙灵之战争以后，尼瑞克就被名为长眠者的组织控制。长眠者由死灵魔法爱好者组成，由女王Cristanos Thex领导。女王Cristanos是很久以前被Innoruuk引诱堕落的女王。一个被称为Thexians 的组织同样在谋划获得他们自己对尼瑞克的控制权。
