OK, here is the fluff for a Highborn. It is probably crap but I'm very high on sugar and caffeine and felt like writing this.
Scurion was not the richest highborn. Because as all Dark Elves love to gamble, Scurions' father, Ekdmus, gambled away a particularly fine dragon when he was drunk. After he sobered up a bit, he realised what he had done and gambled away his fortune attempting to get the dragon back. Finally, he only had one thing left: Scurion. This he lost and Scurion ended up learning to be a good (or maybe evil?) Dark Elf in the castle of Todall, a particularly powerful highborn.
Scurion 'graduated' quite quickly. He got full marks in the 'Killing' category for murdering his master aged only 121. He had let the intestines dangle on a flagpole for three days. Anyway, there were three career options offered to Scurion; a foot soldier, a cavalry officer, or the captain of a Black Arc, the Relios. Scurion chose the captain's chair.
After killing his father for placing him on the gambling table, Scurion went on his first mission: to raid a punitive Empire hamlet somwhere north of Brettonia. This did not appeal to Scurion and even though Malekith himself had given the order to the young Captain, he instead raided Lothern, killing over two hundred people and capturing over 1,000-losing just fourteen men. Despite the success, Malekith was furious Scurion disobeyed his orders, but he let Scurion off the hook-this time.
However, the Dark Elf public had different ideas and were soon singing Scurions name. Enraged and worried Scurion would take over from him, Malekith put Scurion on a suicide mission: just with his own Arc, Scurion was to attack and defeat five High Elf hawkships. The unsucspecting Dark Elf happily took up the challenge.
Of course, being Scurion of Clar Karond he was winning when he received a second message from Malekith; now, he had to invade the chaos wastelands. Scurion's face must've looked like this: :blink:. "Yes sir," he muttered, riping up the document, "I'm gonna attack the daemons. I'm also going to go to the moon with the grand inquisitor."
If you liked this tell me and I will post part two.

Major point: Shadowblade is considered young and in human years is 150 years old, a Dark Elf finishing his training at 21 is beyond incredible.
Also your battlefield figures for attacking the High Elves are way too good, Lothern would probably be utterly depopulated by such an attack.
I was undeer the impression that like 200000 people lived in othern and also he is ecsagarating because ALl the fLLuf exagarates!
I am cool

Anyway, I was under the impression that the population of Lothern was much higher. I made him sound a child prodgidy becauseit makes him sound better. And although Shadowblade is young, this does not mean Elves take longer to get their qualifications. If anything, their sharper brains make it quicker. Anyway, I have altered my thread as you can see. The main thing is, now I am sober again I can see what a total idiot I have made of myself.
Also I would stress adam1911 to lay off LO untill he is about my age. Frankly, you are too young.

Up the age to somewhere between 100 and 150 and tone down the casualties and losses. Itâ€™s the numbers that remove all suspense of disbelief.
Think legend not demi-god
Uh, I did that already., if you see under the original thread it sys 'edited' yesterday'
