"These are not wicked folk. If they have a fault it is distrust of strangers. Though their magic is strong, even in those days they were Fearless. They differed from the High Elves of the West and were more dangerous and wiser. For most of them (together with their scattered relations in the hills and mountains Wolves and Neighborly Pets) were descended from the ancient tribes that never went to Faerie in the West."—"The Bone Of The Paws"
