Dark elves (Second Human Empire: Hamo Yuti'kio Poiu'uiki) are one of the known elf races found in the Mink'ius and Vop'lla Universes.
Mink'ius Universe Edit
In the Mink'ius Universe, 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. The Mink'ius Dark Elves joined the Axis of Empires.
Vop'lla Universe Edit
In the Vop'lla Universe, Dark Elves, or Druchii in Eltharin, are the dark cousins of the High Elves from the same universe. Originally both elven kindred were united as a single people, living in the island nation of Ulthuan, but a civil war was fought between the forces of Malekith - the Prince of Nagarythe and son of Aenarion - and the forces of Caledor, the elected Phoenix King. The war eventually led to the Sundering, which left Nagarythe destroyed and drove the Druchii out of Ulthuan to the cold land of Naggaroth. The Vop'lla Dark Elves joined the Coalition of Independent States.
