Hmm. I suppose that makes sense. Blade Dancer IS kind of "artsy fartsy" but remember, we're dealing with Elves.

I know it's generalizing and hardly fair to lump all versions in the fantasy genre together but the general image of elves are elitist snobs who are holier than thou, at one with nature, masters of magic, et cetera.

I do like Avenger, too.

Bladestorm isn't terrible, but I don't know. It just sounds weird for a unit name. I've always ever encountered it as an ability which is probably why.
