I'm writing a story, and I can't figure out what species I want my character to be. I know it's a bit trivial, but I'm having a problem with it. As of now she's an elf, but I'm hesitant to stick with that because it seems like whenever there's a main female character in high fantasy she's an elf or a human. The other two MCs are a human and a dwarf, so I don't want her to be either of those, and I don't want her to be an orc, just because I'd feel like I was doing a knock off of a female orc character from a certain story I like. I'd like her to be humanoid, and that's basically all the cool humanoid fantasy races I know. So just a quick recap, I need a speaking humanoid fantasy race that is not humans, elves, dwarves, or orcs. Please help me.
