CHAPTER III: Demi-humans


“For the rest, they shall represent the other Free Peoples of the World: Elves, Dwarves, and Men, Legolas shall be for the Elves; and Gimli son of Gloin for the Dwarves. They are willing to go at least to the passes of the Mountains, and maybe beyond.”

  • J.R.R. Tolkien

The Fellowship of the Ring

“We do not want merely to see beauty… we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. That is why we have peopled air and earth and water with gods and goddesses, and nymphs and elves.”

  • C. S. Lewis

“Trust not in Sprites nor the motivations of a Gnome.”

  • Jefferson Smith
