I must have missed something about folklore (even the second time through the story). I always took this exchange to be flippant -- "Them scary? Nah, I shot it full of lead." When did they mention elves are immune to bullets?

I don't know. If it had been me, I would have made it clear to Jon I didn't intend to kill him before lowering my hood. Of course Sarine does OK as is; but there was always the risk he MIGHT have been a bit faster than she was. On the other hand, Sarine has apparently been more physically competent than almost anyone she's met for so long, she may not even think of those possibilities anymore.

Also, I'd have double-checked to make sure Jon's hands were both above the table. They both are, but having seen the original Star Wars (Han shot first), that's something I'd want to be completely clear on before sitting down. :D

I always assumed some ignorant humans had tried to shoot some elves before, hit magical shields, and chalked it up to an "elf thing." That, or Jon wasn't referring to folklore which said elves are immune to bullets. It could have just been that folklore says elves are really good at magic, and thus, they'd be able to protect themselves from things like bullets. Maybe people conflated ones like we see later in the story, who do block bullets, with all elves.

In that case, the folklore would just be, "Elves are amazing," and Jon found out that isn't necessarily true.
