why would an elf want to be a templar though is another question
they’re probably not banned from joining the chantry either, but have we ever seen one go in a chantry voluntarily?
remember in lothering the chantry was the shelter for everyone but the elvhen family was staying outside, even though they were in desperate need of help. no doubt they knew they weren’t going to find any in there
^ good point
Only elves involved in anything “Chantry” seem to be mages…
