After the atmosphere has been set, he asks the elf in regards to their homeland and more specifically about any dark elves that might be present.

Whilst Ainz and his charges were busy learning how to interact with the dark elves, another plot was unfolding in a distant are of the New World. Said plot involved the fabled Corpus of the Abyss, a secret cabal of undead liches who worked in the shadows conducting magical research. Recently the organization had come under the control of an unknown entity. Due to the entity's power the undead magic caster accepted its leadership. Originally it was believed that the entity would benefit Corpus of the Abyss, but as time went on, it became apparent that the entity had no bearing of a ruler nor respected the undead magic casters. Instead it sought to monopolize their research for personal gain. Unknown to the entity, the magic caster had began to make moves to ferment a rebellion against it, feigning loyalty whilst secretly plotting countermeasures, has they unanimously had enough of being extorted.
