Probably because they tend to be 'tall and handsome' are usually thin
as well. Mostly things that fashion suggests are 'good looks' and
they often have good charisma in rules for that 'drop dead gorgeous'
tweak as well.

Compared with other games i have seen SR's elves are very tame game
mechanics wise, they have no penalties and make very good shamen but
Orcs have little penalty except looks and same name as Tolkiens
green skinned fiends most games copy, are stonger and absorb damage
better. Dawarfs fit in smaller holes (ie need less cover to duck like
frag, get +1 willpower! and trolls beat two shades of forever out of
anything else in melee combat.
