“How long do elves live? We don't know... No one's died of old age yet.”
—Sophie and Kenric, in Keeper
One of the main differences between elves and humans are their life spans. There has never been a recorded death by old age in the history of elves. Some of the oldest elves known are Fallon Vacker and Councillor Bronte, who are both considered Ancients, along with many other elves. Instead of physically aging by growing white hair and gaining wrinkles, elves' ears become pointy as they age. They stop physically aging, except for the ears, when they become adults.
