What if humans are a crossbreed between elves and dwarves?
Those silly Elfling females are not stout or hairy enough to carry a good hearty Dwarf child!
No stout, hardy and honourable Dwarf woman would be attracted to such a tall, skinny and weak Elfling!
I actually had this happen in Divinity 2 later on in the story where my female Elf main ended up getting freaky with the dwarf Beast in a sexy time interlude.But why stick to Dwarves, get some of that Orc action going on.
It's just evolution. Dwarves live underground. The less you have to carve out, the better, and so they evolved to be shorter. The dandelion eaters, er, Elves chose the open air and so grew tall to enjoy the sun, they so adore.
