Elves are immortal. They can only die in battle. When they grow tired of Middle Earth, they go to the Grey Havens, which are near The Shire and sail to the Undying Lands. as the Third Age of Middle Earth comes to an end, the time of the Elves is waning. Only a few remain. Elves have a love of nature and they live in forests. They are skilled craftsmen. Major settlements remain in Lothlórien (home of Celeborn and Galadriel), Mirkwood (home of Legolas), and Rivendell (home to Elrond). They distrust Dwarves because of their greedy tendancies.
