The elven side would warm to the relationship faster and more universally, once the shock of the unusual pairing wore off, but the dwarf side might not ever fully accept it.
In Golarion, how would their respective societies view an Elf-Dwarf couple?
Specifically, an Elf from Kyonin and a Dwarf from the Five Kings Mountains.
Would such a couple be considered unusual? Deviants? Hated? Shunted? Made outcasts? Or would they be accepted as an unusual, but acceptable relationship? Or is such a relation ship considered perfectly normal? Or even preferred due to their relative long lives?
And what if both are of noble or royal birth?
I'm trying to make sense of a character backstory in the Golarion setting.
Thanks for answering!
I fear as much...
From what I have read on the elves of Kyonin, they are extreme isolationist.
1) So would Kyonin accept an adopted Dwarf child of such a union? As in if the Dwarf takes up the family name of the Elf and they choose to live in Kyonin, would the elves even accept it?
2) Especially if both parents, Elf and Dwarf are nobles or even members of the royal family in their respective nations?
3) And how would such a Elvish speaking Dwarf child, growing up in Kyonin,see him or herself and the world?. Would he or she sees herself as a... Dwelf?
I'm assuming adopted elven or half-elven children would have a much easier time then the dwarf child in Kyonin.
