Thousands of years ago, the Dark Elves were little more than a small group within High Elf society who turned their back on traditional Elven ways. They eschewed nobility and grace for power and glory, believing their immortality marked them out as the most powerful of all the world's races. When their thirst for conquest led to a bitter civil war that rocked the Elven kingdoms- which they lost- the Dark Elves were banished from their homeland. This enforced exile only strengthened their resolve, and to this day they make every effort to prove to their former kin that they were right all along [1].

Dark Elf teams exhibit similar strengths and weaknesses to their Elven cousins, but are distinctly more aggressive in their game. But sheer spite makes the Dark Elves enjoy the running game, particularly when a team includes a remarkable player like Jeremiah Kool. In fact, it is hard to believe that the Flashing Blade won't be tempted out of retirement- if not by the Darkside Cowboys, then by some other team [1].
