In the strictest sense, a mortal is a being that is born, and therefore can die. Whilst beings such as elves are incredibly longed live and could be classed amongst the immortal, because they are not invulnerable they are often brought under the hood of mortality. In common usage, mortal simply means, "that which is not a god or beast."

Examples of mortal races:

- Human

- Elf

- Dwarf
