Faerie Elf

Physical Description

A vague comparison between the Chaotic and Tranquil Factions

Faerie elves are roughly the same height as gnomes but weigh roughly 25 to 60 lbs. Faeries tend to have more vibrant eye colors of shimmering greens, blues, and reds. They have a pair of transparent wings that allow them to fly. Other than that they look like most wood elves.


Although not many people have seen these crossbreeds, the faerie elf is a mixture of a elf and a fey. They tend to keep their societies and culture hidden from public view. Faerie elves are known to have many conflicts within their society, from what little has been observed. They tend to have very different views of other races and cultures. There are two primary groups, or "Factions", the faeries tend to choose from, and both come with their own set of special traits and physical appearances. There is the Chaotic faction of faerie elves. Their views of other races tend to be more negative and the Faeries of this faction tend to be more violent-minded. These faeries are more focused on their brute strength rather than magic. The second group is known as the Tranquil faction. They tend to view other races equally to their own and are more keen on having open relationships with others. The Tranquil faction tends to focus more on nature magic, similar to a druid.


Faerie elves tend to keep to themselves and tend to hide from other outside sources, mainly due to the harsh discrimination and prejudice their ancestors have experienced. They are buried deep within forests and caves and have a strong sense of family. They tend to have a hard time developing new relations with others, especially if they're neither fey, elf, or faerie. The ones who do leave the villages tend to be brave adventurers determined to prove the old ways are over.

Faerie Elf Names
