You might want to check out the Paranthropus genus of hominids, also known
as robust australopithecines (and sometimes considered part of the
Australopithecus genus). Heavily built and little brains. Quite a bit
farther removed from Homo sapiens than are Neanderthals
To continue the elvesy ramblings, the coniverse to which my Yargish orcs
belong is supposed to include elves (the world is, among other things,
characterized by non-capitalized race-names!). I've not, as yet, done any
real work on them, but the setting features no good or evil races, so there
going to be both noble, heroic elves, and drug-dependent misfit elves.
Biologically, they're going to be pretty standard; tall thin humanoids with
pointy ears and longer life-span than humans.
