The question comes up, from time to time, about whether or not there can be elf-human cross-breeds in the world of Elfquest. The short answer is no.
Here’s the longer answer, with amplification (maybe even up to 11):
We (Wendy and Richard) decided long ago, at the very beginning, that there would be no elf-human hybrids in the world of Elfquest. Mostly, we did this for one very good reason: many other fantasy worlds allow them. To us, the elf-human mix has become, well, kind of tired and a bit boring.
Now that his tale is told, we thought you’d enjoy seeing Wendy’s very first design for the human hunter, Lehrigen. If nothing else, it’s a reminder of the differences the passage of time has on us, and on the elves.
