Swamp Elves, also known as Bissix, are wiry and nimble. They have pale skin with a green tint. Their hair grows in mats and ranges from blonde to brown. The eyes of a Swamp Elf are bulbous and slit like a cats to allow for more light to enter. Bissix have very keen senses. Large concentrations of Swamp Elves can be found in the Blackfoot March and the Bramblemoor. Swamp Elves tend to not be overly social, seeing things through the eyes of the unforgiving marsh land that they live in. They tend to lean to the neutral side of law/chaos, good/evil, preferring to just take care of themselves.
