Female Elf on Sosarian coast, from Ultima III manual.
First appearance: Ultima I
Last appearance: Ultima III

Inhabitants of the world long before humans appeared, the ancient race of elves once flourished in the forests. Slighter and shorter than humans (but still taller than the race of dwarves), they were gifted with natural grace, speed, and considerably long lifespans. The majestic elves departed the lands of Sosaria under mysterious circumstances, not long after the fall of Exodus (as chronicled in Ultima III).

A divergent aquatic race of blue-hued elves, known as nixies, are first encountered in Ultima IV.


An elf consults with her human companion, from Ultima III manual.

Shorter than their human counterparts by the span of three hands, the elves of Sosaria are slight of build and swift of movement. Their superior natural agility makes them excellent musicians and clever thieves. At home amongst the trees of the deepest forest or in the alleyways of the capital, the Sosarian elf makes a stalwart companion and a relentless foe.
