Featherborn (Human Variant)
Ever since you were born, it seems as though the birds of the forest were naturally calm around you. Unlike other humans, who birds fly away from on sight, birds of all kinds stay where they are upon your arrival, chirping and tweeting loudly in delight due to your presence. It seems that they trust you, as if they believe that you are there to protect them and keep them safe from the dangerous world they live in. This affiliation with feathered creatures that you possess most likely comes from your bloodline but can stem from other places as well.
Ability Score Increase. Your Wisdom score increases by 2 and your Dexterity score increases by 1.
Alignment. As enthusiasts of nature, featherborn humans are overwhelmingly chaotic in nature, leaning more towards good.
Natural Heart. You are proficient in the Animal Handling skill and may double your proficiency bonus when making Animal Handling skill checks that involve birds.
Avian Understanding. You can understand and speak to birds as if you shared a language. Additionally, birds of non-magical origins (i.e. a hawk) are friendly towards you and will not attack you or your party unless provoked.
Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and one extra language of your choice.
