The Aen Elle (Elder Speech: People of the Alders or Alder Folk), are elves who inhabit another world and are culturally distinct from Aen Seidhe elves. Their ancestral homeworld was at the brink of destruction so both left for new worlds long before the Conjunction of the Spheres. While the former arrived in a new world, the latter arrived on the Continent.
Upon arriving in what would come to be known as the world of the Aen Elle, the Aen Elle encountered two sentient species already living there: the unicorns, and ￼￼humans￼￼. They are constantly at war with the unicorns, and commited genocide against the humans to the point of creating mountains of bones.  The humans in this world were wiped out, which caused the need for the Wild Hunt to be formed to acquire (mostly human) slaves from other worlds since the unicorns made unsuitable slaves for obvious reasons. The King of the Alders, Auberon Muircetach, governed his people from the capital city of Tir ná Lia.
Notable Aen Elle
There is a quote from Gerhart of Aelle where he is describing this elven group:
- The Aen Elle are likely based on the dark elves of Norse mythology and the Unseelie Court of Fairies in Scottish folklore.
