The matchmakers work to make sure elves with different Talents and physical features end up together. They also make sure their personalities get along by assigning a questionnaire. Matchmakers must go through centuries of training to do this.
You receive your matchmaking packet during your Level 5 year, right after midterms. You're supposed to finish them by the end of the school year.
A very extensive questionnaire is filled out by the elf receiving the matches. After all of the factors are taken into consideration, the matchmakers release a list of 100 names. A numbered scroll from 1 to 100 is delivered. There are up to five different lists that can be released, each a month after the last. However, most elves find their match on the first list.
In order of delivery, the lists are:
- Top Tier
- Second Contenders
- Third Considerations
- Fourth Runners-Up
- Final Alternatives
If an elf marries another elf without their name being on the list it is considered a bad match. This is usually caused by one of the Elves having a Talent and the other being Talentless. In most cases, being a bad match causes emotional distress.
