A half-elf is born to an elf and a human, or to two half-elves. The life
of a half-elf can be difficult, often marked by a struggle to fit in. Half-elves
don’t have their own homeland on Golarion, nor are populations of half-elves
particularly tied to one another, since they often have very disparate human
and elven traditions. Instead, most half-elves attempt to find acceptance in
either human or elven settlements.
Half-elves often appear primarily human, with subtly pointed ears and a taller stature than most full-blooded humans. Half-elves lack the almost alien eyes of their elf parents, though they do have a natural presence—and often a striking beauty— that leads many to become artists or entertainers. Despite this innate appeal, many half‑elves have difficulty forming lasting bonds with either humans or elves due to the distance they feel from both peoples as a whole.
Half-elves live longer than other humans, often reaching an age around 150 years. This causes some of them to fear friendship and romance with humans, knowing that they’ll likely outlive their companions.
You can create a half-elf character by selecting the half-elf heritage at 1st level. This gives you access to elf and half-elf ancestry feats in addition to human ancestry feats.
By default, half-elves and half-orcs descend from humans, but your GM might allow you to be the offspring of an elf, orc, or different ancestry. In these cases, the GM will let you select the half-elf or half-orc heritage as the heritage for this other ancestry. The most likely other parent of a half-elf are gnomes and halflings.
