Being immortal, Elves continued to live peacefully throughout the Fourth Age. While those had left Middle-earth, the Elves that lived in Aman chose to stay and live in a blissful happiness as they did before the Revolt of the Ñoldor. All the Wood elves in the Woodland Realm chose to stay, and became more secretive, civilized, and great in number. Most from Lothlórien have chosen to stay while some, which included Celeborn and Galadriel, sailed to the Undying Lands. However, Celeborn and Galadriel had a vision that they would return to Middle-earth once a year during the Fourth Age. The elves from other places in Middle-earth, never chose to sail into the Utter West and chose to remain civilized during the Fourth Age while the rest sailed to the Undying Lands.
More than 3,000 High elves continued to live peacefully in Lindon while most of them sailed for Valinor after Gil-galad's death. The High elves also shared their connection with the other elven realms in Middle-earth and began to slowly populate after Sauron's death.
Fifth Age Edit
As the Fifth Age dawned, the Elves evolved into Elfes (single: Elfe) and the old Elves's spirits reached out and took over the bodies until the Elves were no more. The spirits lingered until they were turned to Souls.
