Fey Warrior[edit]

A warrior with otherworldly powers to destroy their enemies.


An assassin hunts her halfling prey through the crowded city streets. She has her eyes perfectly trained on her target, and closes in for the kill. Suddenly, the halfling is gone. Searching the most logical place for her target to have escaped, the assassin steps into a nearby alleway. But, her target is nowhere to be seen. Suddenly, she is stabbed in the back and pushed away. The assassin turns around to see her halfling target standing at the ready, before flashing a blinding flame in her face. The halfling sees his opening, and strikes with a handful of magical dust. Hours later, the assassin awakens. She has survived the encounter, but has learned to be wary of her target.

A dragonborn conjures a ring of mushrooms at his feet, pushing back the bandit hordes that have crowded him. With a swing of his mighty weapon, the dragonborn cuts through his enemies, and feels himself rejuvenating as he steals the life of his enemies. The bandits have been pushed back, and the dragonborn disappears before their eyes. The thieves all close in for the kill where they last saw their opponent, but they find that he has gone from his position. With a frightful cry that sends fear through their ranks, the bandits start getting cut down one by one. None live to see the next day.

A human faces against an opponent in the ring of combat. The cheers of the crowd favor her opponent. The half-orc opponent swings his weapon at the human, who dodges left and right, until suddenly in a cloud of dust, the half-orc finds himself faced with four identical opponents to fight. He attacks one, which bursts into dust. He grapples the second, and finds that it is solid. He has found the correct target. Suddenly, he feels a sharp pain that forces him to let go of the human. Before his eyes, the human undergoes a monstrous transformation, now towering over him and growing horns, fangs, and claws. Frightened, he throws his weapon at the head of the creature, but it does no good, as he is beaten into submission.

Creating a Fey Warrior[edit]

One has to consider where and how the fey warrior got their powers? Was it something they learned while they were lost in the Fey Wilds? Was it a trick by some mischievous fairy that had unexpected results? Were they raised by the little folk, who trained them in the ways of their magic?
