Silvar-Elves (Elder-Elves)

When Ectharë was destroyed at the end of the Second Age, the Silvar-Elves divided into three groups that have essentially evolved into three different sub-races of elves known today: the Grey-Elves, the High-Elves, and the Wood-Elves. in Elvish lore, this event is called the "Sundering."

The Silvar-Elves of Corwyn; commonly known as the "Silvar," or "Elder-Elves," were an ancient race of elves who first migrated to Corwyn from Eryn Norvë at the beginning of the First Age and established the magnificent elvish realm of Ectharë.

The Elder-elves were only able to build a civilization after after defeating Calegorax and his army of evil dragons in the War of the Dragons.

Elvish legend has it that there were four other small splinter groups of Elves in the world; the Sky-Elves, the Sea-Elves, the Wild-Elves, and the Rockseer-Elves.
