imma be honest i just wanted to post the cooler Malekith.
My dark elf lore is that the term dark elf reffers to elves who have commited heinous acts, ie: serial killer elves, sorcerers and wizards who bring horrors into the world, those who desecrate tombs and disturb the ancestors and those who private others from their freedom.
I use the shadar-kai from 5e as shadow elves, they live on the shadow of the world because the sun disolves them, they can only resist it for a time with the use of magic tattoos and charms. they steal, kill, torture and more just to get their rocks off, the material realm is like an LSD trip to them. you can hire one as a guide to the shadow of the world if you manage to arrange a price but it's always something fucked. they are called dark elves only by non-elves. dwarves also get called dark elves because both a race of sadistic psychopaths that die in the sun, but dwarves turn to stone instead of disolving in smoke
the PHB drow or the purple skin-white hair ones in general i just relabeled as night elves and are hardcore isolaitonists because high elves almost genocided them during the elven schism
