Elves are a sapient species that reside in the hidden village of Elfwood in the Enchanted Forest, and they haven't been seen outside of their kingdom by humans for centuries. They spend all day making candy, singing, dancing, and obeying the Jolly Code (a law requiring them to act happy all the time). It is unknown who created this code, or why they follow it so intently. It was revealed in a conversation between Leavo and Rulo in the Trøg mines, that the original elven kingdom was located under dreamland. This eventually causes the elves to plan to retake their old kingdom from the people of Dreamland.


Known elves

Elf names almost always end with an 'o' and usually describe their demeanor. This naming convention is shared with Trolls and Trøgs.

Trivia

  • The elves' names are somewhat demonstrative of their roles or behaviors: Singo sings, Worko works, Shocko expresses shock. Sometimes they are used ironically for comic effect: no one ever returns - not even Returno! Speako is commanded to speak no more of Leavo. Weirdo is, well, weird and perverted.
  • It is unclear (and will probably never be known) how the elves get their names, but it is clear that the naming convention is played for laughs, and they shouldn't be taken too seriously or literally. (Clearly all the elves work, but there is only one Worko).
  • Elves are similar enough in appearance to Trolls and Dwarves that the three races can be easily confused for or masquerade as one another. The key differences are that Trolls and Dwarves don't like music, prefer hard liquor, and are able to grow body hair.
  • Another race of Elves, called Trog lives in the passages beneath Dreamland Castle. Unlike the Elves of Dreamland, they are completely white-skinned and black-eyed. They are somehow connected to Queen Dagmar and Maru, and a symbol representing them (a triangle above two circles indicative of eyes) in the tunnels is what Leavo had been searching for, tying them into what he described as "the destiny of the elves."
