The Anar'Shayri (those born in the sun, without kin) usually just Anar (Ah-Nar) are sometimes called Sun Elves by humans and are a race first seen in the late 4th age. Recently returned into the fold of the surface communities, these former Drow now live in the city of Findle. After centuries of life on the surface, younger Drow are born without the world caverns taint and have been cleansed of some Drow traits, as a result, being difficult to distinguish from Gold Elves by the average layperson. Other elves, can instantly recognize the difference however, and do not accept the Anar as kin, due to their lineage from the Drow and the Shayri curse.

Anar were originally very few in number, but have increased to be the largest elven population in Findle by the 5th age. They see themselves as natives of Findle and generally follow Findleite culture. Anar are nearly identical to their Drow ancestors aside than their tawny skin.

As an offshoot of Drow, the Anar have a decreased lifespan when compared to older elf subraces. Sun Elves have a more human-like mindset and age in a similar manner as half elves, rarely living past 250 years. Like other elves, Anar do not grow infirm with age and appear youthful to the end.
