People come up with all sorts of excuses to make their characters get out from under being a void elf.
Just because they, say went with their families and got caught in the blast, so to say, it doesn’t mean they’re all fine and dandy and don’t need to deal with the whispers. It’s poor character design, to be frank.
They can just play a high elf with a void elven model (which many actually do) if they really want a “normal” character.
But still, sure, velf civilians can be pulled off right. if they’re pulled off right. What I truly despise with a burning passion is emotionally barely if at all stable, nervous wrecks or shy little girls wanting to hide behind mommy’s skirt at the lightest breeze. If they even stutter, just to make it even more annoying, I’m just exploding.
Like, really… no. Just no. Please.
