Default Facial hair

My cousin was wanting to know if Eldar have facial hair. I think it's for a model idea.

There is no representation of any kind of eldar with beard or moustache...and since they were Space elf...I would say no since elves are beardless.

I have seen elves with facial hair before, but it is always sparse and very subtle. I would imagine they the could have facial hair, but it would be difficult for them to get very much.

Dra'Tuisich Novae might disagree with you there.

Anyway, I don't know if there's a canon source either way, but if there is, it would be in xenology. If there isn't, go for whatever it is you want to do.

Yeah, looked up and down the Xenology entry to Eldar already and didn't see anything there. In actuality, the Eldar "specimen" they had in the book, he never needed to shave it seemed. Nothing says "no" as far I see, but there is no evidence to support a "maybe" either to my understanding. Since I don't read the books (just skim through them and read short stories in collections) I don't know if something might've been mentioned there.

I'd caution on a 'no.' It's never mentioned, you are correct, but it's also -never- been displayed. The Eldar are based heavily of Elves, also, which don't generally grow facial hair in most fantasy stories.

Exactly. There's nothing to say that they don't specifically, but in all the material we have we have no evidence to say that they even might. So I'd say they don't.
