The Wind Elves names come from the general Scandinavian areas. The Clawkin are original Native Caribbean/Puerto Rican islander.
From Eukara Vox;
Wind elves have varying degrees of grey colouration due to the strength of their abilities. The darker the grey, the more powerful their magic. The lighter the grey, the weaker or more specific their magic is. I say specific, since someone may be born only able to do something very specific with their magic (like being able to spin wind in very thin filaments that would be useful for boring into things), which won't make them particularly powerful but very useful. Most wind elves will have a varied spectrum of abilities with their magic, even those whose magic is weak.
The wings and eye colour match, and is based on personality type. Wings do vary in form, but that is simply a genetic thing.
Wings manifest themselves when the elf's magic develops and solidifies itself within the elf. Some get their abilities and magic early, as in Kara. She got her wings very young. And some may not get their wings, even as they leave puberty and enter adulthood. You will see some without them yet, and those tend to be better warriors than magical fighters. I believe the Elf, Svera, you may meet soon is one of those.
The commonality between them all is the body markings and skin colour. Wind elves vary, as I like for a people to have variation within them. Humans have such beautiful variations and characteristics throughout the world, creating one of the best and most complex canvases of art. I figured, if humans are so wonderfully made and varied, I would like the Wind Elves to be like that.
As to the presence of wings, the wings can conjure wind if a natural breeze or storm is not present to be manipulated. Wings can also conjure air movement for use in fighting. And, perhaps there is something interesting in their people's history that is yet unrevealed.
Akanthus, the soldiers hunting Sulen'Eska (a village that, despite having a static location on the map, actually moves since it's a guerrilla camp), and Espina Rosa are the extreme side of the Rose. If you have a group of elvish mercenaries attacking your forces while hiding out in the depths of swamp... you're probably gonna send in your hard core special ops guys to take them out, which is what Akanthus did. Most people in Lore, and probably a lot of the grunt-level Rose members, don't even realize what's going on in the swamp, other than occasional "attacks" by the Vind. With most beings, if you're happy and protected inside your bubble then you live your life or, conversely, whatever issues are happening on your doorstep are much more important than stuff that's happening someplace you'll never visit.
