Nightcrawler - The Order of X by NateHallinanArt Nightcrawler - The Order of X by NateHallinanArt
(Kyrt V'wagnyr – Roughly translates from elven as Nightcrawler.)
Kyrt never knew his real parents. He was found by a band of elves as an infant. They were on a twilight march, celebrating the new moon, when they found him crawling next to his basket on a riverbank. They happily adopted him seeing that he was part elf. His enchanting midnight appearance and mysterious abilities makes him highly regarded among elves. Magic runs deep in the race of elves but Kyrt's abilities are more potent than most.

Kyrt joined The Order of X because he, being different himself, strongly believes in their quest. Additionally, Xavier's family has always been friends of the elves. Kyrt also hopes that one day he might find answers to his past and discover who his parents are.

(Personal notes) Elves have become clean-shaven beings in popular media. I felt it would be fun to make elves in this reality closer to nature like animals and, in contrast, slightly more fury. (Maybe also have tails?)

Check out the character exploration of him here.

Great costume. It can be considered long. Every detail is in place and the topic! And the claws on the boots and pants "from the film" and jacket - all super. Implanted metal tail looks great. 
But his face does not look like ... 
Sorry, I'm picky.

Elves with beards? Are you mad! Real elves do nothave beards (or body hair)!

Nightcrawler would have either made a very good Tiefling (perhaps part-elvish) or if you want to keep his nickname a dark elf with (blue skin and) fuzzy hair but still looking 'human' (five fingers, five toes, no tail).

I see you have taken his nickname of fuzzy elf literally, and as a huge Kurt fan, I absolutely love what you've done! Love the fact that the  arrow-tip of his tail is another blade rather than a natural draconian shape, gives the 'blue elf' a sort of transitional look between a monkey and a human almost, but not quite. He kind of has an assassin/pirate theme going.
