"Katisha's face briefly wore the envious, wistful look humans got when contemplating the thousand-year lifespan Elves had been granted by the gods. True, few ever actually lived that long as disease and violence took their respective tolls. But they could. And one or two of them actually did." - From the Real Barenziah, a book found in the Elder Scrolls games
That's vague, though. Weren't there only one type of elf early on, then they separated? Even if that isn't the case, that could be implying only one lives that long, not all three. Plus, they say in Skyrim that Altmer only live to be 700.
This is was quite heartwarming. I would love see a continuation of this short story though is unlikely but a man can wish XD. The colors are just beautiful and really set the mood for this. Wish I could return to Morrowind after the eruption of Red Mountain.
