“The Chronicles of Corum” The Star (Malajzio):

Another character by famed British author Michael Moorcock’s Eternal Champion (the other being Elric and Hawkmoon).
Corum Jhaelen Irsei or The Prince in the Scarlet Robe first appeared in the book The Knight of Swords and is the last of an ancient race of elves, who had been slaughtered by the Mabden (or humans)….

….Moorcock relied on Cornish mythology and language here and Corum is an underrated gem by the author, primarily overshadowed by the popularity of Elric.
