North's Elves

About the Elves

The elves don't actually make the toys, North and the others just let them and the rest of the world think that. It's the Yetis that make the toys while the Elves "test" them.


The elves are small little creatures with a red hat with a piont (a jingle bell at the top), covering their body all the way to the beginning of their legs. Their "body hats" tend to come in different shades of red, and around the elf's waistline is a belt that can come in different designs. There is a hole in the middle of this body hat, where the elf's face sticks out. There are also holes for the elf's pointy ears to stick out. The elf tends to wear a long sleeved shirt that can come in any color under their body hat. They also wear toeless, striped stockings, that also come in any color. The size of an elf would be about the size of half of your arm, even half of that perhaps. These little mischeiveous monsters also tend to have cute eyes, a scrunched up nose, and rosy cheeks, accompanied by a mouth with almost pointy teeth.


The elves were North's bandit band. They were cruel, vain and angry men but after they were returned back from stone, and transformed into small men they became silly and happy people.                                  


  • The elves were once North's mighty men, the very men who helped him rob and thieve, fighting grand armies with strong hearts. Upon their arrival in Santoff Claussen, the group of treasure hunters came across the Spirit of the Forest, who promised beautiful treasures. North did not fall for her tricks, for he heard calls for help in the city and left the promise of treasures to help. His men were greedy though, and were turned to stone by the Spirit of the Forest. Later, the Spirit of the Forest agreed to turn North's men back from stone. They did not return back into their normal selves, but into small eleven men with high pitched voices. Instead of angry or cruel men, they were happy and smiley elves.
  • Elves are first attested in Old English and Old Norse texts and are prominent in traditional British and Scandinavian folklore.
