In the fantasy genre all have a favorite race. My favorite race are three:
The first race: The Elves. Galadriel, Fingolfin, Celebrimbor and Haldir.
Mainly my absolute favorites are the elves of Tolkien, but this does not mean that I do not like the other kinds, I’m talking of the half elves,Drows, dark elves, or as Tolkien also called: The Moriquendi. Second race: The Drow or Moriquendi hate sunlight, are suspicious, cruel, ruthless. In the case of the Drow of R.Salvatore, Drow revere the cruel spider goddess Lolth. Speaking of Tolkien, are important Eöl the dark elf father of Maeglin, both are important characters, especially Maeglin, one of my favorites. in the chronicles of Drizzt Do’Urden, Salvatore shows that not all Drow are ruthless as they seem to be.

Third race: Orcs. Absolutely orcs of Tolkien or Uruk-hai of Saruman. Source: These creatures of humanoid form, a progeny elven corrupted in mind and body by Melkor maiming and torturing elves from him imprisoned in Utumno during the First Age, as explained in The Silmarillion: Ainu decayed fact he has not created, is not able to create any living being “because of his rebellion in Ainulindalë before the Beginning,” but the seed of Orcs playing perpetuating the original corruption and Melkor made them his slaves although these creatures in their hearts detest.
Born in the year 532 of the First Age to Eärendil and Elwing in the Havens of Sirion, Elrond and Elros were only six years of age when their lives were forever changed.
With an absent Eärendil, who said begun his sailing when the children were only two years old, the boys had no memory of their birth
father, and never would. As for their mother, Elrond retains a faint
memory of her before watching her leap into the sea with the cursed Silmaril and leaving them alone to face
They expected death as their kin lay bloody outside the
doors of the bedchambers in which they took refuge. When the
Sons entered the room and found only the children left, they took
the elflings as prisoners and the boys were
raised by the brothers together and taught to read and fight.
Prisoners of war, it took several months for the elves to earn the
trust of the children. Once gained, however, Maglor and Maedhros
became the fathers that Eärendil had failed to be.
Elrond loved his fosters dearly, and only ever spoke of them as
loving fathers, despite their horrifying oaths and deeds in history.
When Maglor disappeared, Elrond spent years trying to find him.
In his spare time, he would hunt the seaside for his lost father,
calling his name until he became hoarse and was forced to stop.
