Plowking - why is everybody always falling in the same trap?

Leaf Swifthand is a Half-Elf. You know nothing about his background and education.

Why is it always that a Half-Elf is an Elf, and a Half-Human never a human?
What about Half-Dwarf? Half-Orc? Half-??

Is this a human trait? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/sad.gif" alt="" />

That philosophical thought set aside - I've been thinking about it!
I've been thinking a lot about it actually - but nothing so far gave me a good feeling - that's why I am trying to broaden the inspiration base <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Elliot - thanks. I am aware that it may not the best possible choice of words. Contrary to my previous story excerpt, this is NOT a translation. I wrote it directly in English, and it's the best I can do without a lot of work with dictionary, thesaurus and the like. Bear with me - and do tell me (the least it will do is improve my English, and that's not the worst I can achieve here! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />)

I'll wait a while to see more feedback, before discussing Plowking's other concept. (Which I think is worth discussing)

EDIT: and I am aware that some ambiente description is falling a little short, but I wanted to keep it in a moderate size. And the purpose is to test ideas, concepts - not (yet) the fullfledged formulation.
