Darkvision: You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light as though it were bright light, and in darkness as though it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.
Fey Ancestry: You have advantage on Saving Throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put you to sleep.

Keen Senses: You gain proficiency with the Perception skill.

Trance: Elves don’t need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. (The Common word for such meditation is “trance.”) While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.

Elven Weapon Training: You have proficiency with the longsword, shortsword, shortbow and longbow.
