A branch of the Elven race altered and adapted for aquatic dwelling; effectively Mer-Elves.

The Teleri probably broke off from the parent race during the expansion of the Elven Empire, using arcane magics to permanently change themselves in a way that bred true.

Almost all contact was lost with the Teleri during and after the War of Tears; some Teleri have been seen around Terranova in modern times.

The term is also used to refer to those sea-faring elves who dwell upon the Elven Isles, although these are not merfolk.
