Elves in Divinity Original Sin: 2 Edit
"Elegant and long-lived, elves are skilled Sourcerers. Memory is the keystone to elven culture; they can absorb memories by consuming the flesh of others."
Elves begin the game with two natural talents.
Elegant - Grants +2 to Finesse.
Corpse Eater - Allows you to eat certain body parts to gain memories of the dead, also grants some healing.
The Elves racial ability is Flesh Sacrifice.
Due to the Elves ability to gain memories from body parts they eat the Elves are probably the best race to play for story as you will gain more insight into characters and some relevant stories by consuming body parts.
