— High Elf Archer

High Elf Archer (妖精弓手 (エルフ) , Erufu) is an adventurer who is a member of Goblin Slayer's party. She is a 2,000 year old elf, which is considered young by elven standards.


High Elf Archer is a slender and tall elf with green hair that is long in the back and short in front, with two braids at the side. She has long ears that confirm her status as a High Elf. She wears a green sleeveless archer corset, shorts, a pair of uneven black gloves, knee high boots, and a hood. On adventures, she wears an additional black sleeve over her left arm, the arm guard for her bow arm. She is described as stunningly beautiful, even among elves. On several occasions, she is shown to take the immediate attention of males. She has a small bust, which she is sensitive over.


Despite her great age, High Elf Archer is still quite innocent to the darker aspects of the world and has her own ideas about what an adventure involves. Her first quest with Goblin Slayer has her witness the brutal and severely-overlooked cruelty of goblins for the first time, followed by the joyless killing of them with a knife. Still, by the end of that affair, High Elf Archer promised herself to take Goblin Slayer on an adventure suited to her own standards.

One of High Elf Archer's defining traits is her hot-tempered personality. Prone to outbursts, she lashes out at Goblin Slayer on more than one occasion and frequently argues with Dwarf Shaman during various adventures. This trait is usually amplified whenever she drinks alcohol, which she has a low tolerance to and so she tries to avoid drinking.[3]


HEA archery

High Elf Archer can shoot arrows in arced paths

  • Archery: High Elf Archer fires arrows with tremendous accuracy. She has demonstrated the ability to fire arrows in curved paths and can fire multiple arrows at the same time. However, she admits she's not as experienced as her older sister, as she can't fire arrows while dodging attacks.
  • Trap Detection: She is skilled enough to detect and disarm simple traps.
  • Agility: She is remarkably acrobatic, able to dodge ranged attacks by jumping and flipping, as well as scaling tall objects such as trees effortlessly.
  • Hearing: Her long ears grant her a large sense of hearing, which she can utilize for reconnaissance during adventures. She has also used it to eavesdrop from a distance, as shown during Goblin Slayer's date with Cow Girl[4] and when she listened in on Dark Elf and Rhea Scout.[5]
  • Multi-lingual: High Elf Archer can speak elven and common.[6]
  • Lockpicking: High Elf Archer is able to lock pick complex locks, which Goblin Slayer isn't able to.


  • Great bow: A long carved wooden bow, this appears to be her main weapon. Its thread is woven from spider silk.[7]
  • Shortbow: After a few adventures with Goblin Slayer, she has taken up using a secondary shortbow for confined spaces such as sewers or to conserve the durability of her great bow.
  • Quiver and arrows: Worn at waist height, her arrows can be used with either of her bows. She has taken to retrieving her unbroken arrows from dead enemies in an effort to conserve arrows much like Goblin Slayer would do with weapons, though she denies copying him, only wishing not to use crude goblin-made arrows.
  • Knives: Two knives used for multiple tasks. She may have some attachment to them, as when they became unusable due to being covered in goblin blood and fat, she stowed them away before salvaging a dagger from the battlefield, copying the tactics of Goblin Slayer.


  • High Elf Archer doesn't wear underwear as she doesn't understand the point of it.[7]
  • On the textboard version of the series, High Elf Archer's placeholder design was that of Shino Asada from the Sword Art Online franchise. [8]
