Female Elf on Sosarian coast, from Ultima III manual.
|First appearance:||Ultima I|
|Last appearance:||Ultima III|
Inhabitants of the world long before humans appeared, the ancient race of elves once flourished in the forests. Slighter and shorter than humans (but still taller than the race of dwarves), they were gifted with natural grace, speed, and considerably long lifespans. The majestic elves departed the lands of Sosaria under mysterious circumstances, not long after the fall of Exodus (as chronicled in Ultima III).
Shorter than their human counterparts by the span of three hands, the elves of Sosaria are slight of build and swift of movement. Their superior natural agility makes them excellent musicians and clever thieves. At home amongst the trees of the deepest forest or in the alleyways of the capital, the Sosarian elf makes a stalwart companion and a relentless foe.
- After Ultima III, elves disappeared, not only as a playable race, but from Sosaria/Britannia entirely.
- Elves reappeared as a playable race in the Mondain's Legacy expansion for Ultima Online.
- Elves were also scheduled to appear in the cancelled Ultima X. Their detailed historical write-up can be seen here.
