Elves on the Discworld are based more on the nastier kind of fairy-folk in British and European folklore than elves as portrayed in most modern (post-Tolkien) fantasy fiction.
While the Discworld elves are nastier than Tolkien's elves, Tolkein's elves were darker than the Victorian era elves, which were often depicted more like Tinkerbell.--220.127.116.11 15:45, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
The elves are not infact the fairies that some say, but originally nearly Identical to Tolkiens elves, also shakespeare hade turned them into strange childish fairy thingies, they are much like the thutha de daan in norse folklore. this is from one angry edhel. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 11:12, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
