    The Elven Castle was the residence of the rulers of Elfheim. It featured a large throne room and a treasure vault located just outside the castle walls. The evil Dark Elf Astos attacked the Castle five years before the arrival of the Warriors of Light and cursed the young Elf Prince to perpetual slumber. The Prince slept in the throne room presided over by his loyal Healer, who was helpless to remedy the Prince's curse. The Warriors of Light defeated Astos and brought a vial of Jolt Tonic to the Prince, awakening him and restoring peace to Elfheim.

GAME INFO
    The Elven Castle is found right outside the town of Elfheim.

NAME ORIGIN
    Elven is an adjective relating to Elves. Elves are mythical creatures found in Northern European folklore. Most depictions are of small, sprite-like creatures with magical powers. However, some interpretations, such as J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, depict Elves as human-like magical beings. The word comes from the Old English ælf. A castle is a fortified residence used by nobility in feudal times. The word comes from the Latin word castellum meaning "a fortified settlement".
