Half-elves are found in very small numbers in most regions of Ghelspad, but are more likely to be found in areas like Amalthea and the Bridged City, even there they are not especially common they are more numerous than just about anywhere else.

Things are more difficult for the half-elves of Termana, the majority of whom descend from the forsaken elves. Cursed by the titan Chem in the latter days of the Divine War, elves from Termana are unable to bear healthy children; some desperate elves have been known to steal human infants (belonging to settlers brought to Termana as part of Virduk‘s Promise), raising them among the elves to serve as breeding stockso as to perpetuate the elves’ own dying bloodlines. Though they have difficulty finding acceptance among either humans or elves, these half-elves do have considerable value in conflicts, and as such find ready acceptance among the legions of King Virduk. This of course upsets the elves who bred the half-elves to begin with but since the forsaken elves treat their offspring like half-breed lepers it should come as no surprise that the half-elves seek their fortunes elsewhere.
