"Once upon a time, God Almighty came to visit Adam and Eve. They received him with joy, and showed him everything they had in the house. They also brought their children to him which he found promising and full of hope. Then He asked Eve whether she had no other children than these whom she had showed him. She said "None." But it so happened that she had not finished washing them all, and being ashamed to let God see them dirty, she had hidden the unwashed ones. Of course God knew, and there for said angrily to her, "What man hides from God, God will hide from man."
These unwashed children became invisible, and later found a home in mounds, hills, and rocks. From these are the elves descended, but we men from those of Eve's children whom she had openly and frankly shown to God. And it is only by the will and desire of the elves themselves if humans can ever see them.
The hidden people can be either friendly or hostile towards humans."
