Violet Faeries are quite a bit taller than other faeries, with their average height being on the smaller end of the normal height of a human. They are all slim and sleak, with the largest males looking more athletic than muscular. They complexions range from white to soft pink to deep purple and nearly black. Their hair is straight and fine, with the same color range as their complexions. Most Violet Faeries cannot grow hair past their shoulders but those that can are considered nobility. Their ears are pointed like elves and their eyes are orbs of either white, gold, silver, or black. The wings of a Violet Faerie are the same color as their complexion but are filled with designs unqiue to each Violet Faerie, much like a fingerprint.
Violet Faeries grow at the same rate as humans but aging comes to a near halt after they reach maturity around 20. A female Violet Faerie can only have two children throughout their entire lives, so those who can still reproduce are highly sought after by males. Violet Faeries live to nearly 150 years.
Playing a Violet Faerie
Violet Faeries live in clustered pockets in the Feywild, using their magic to disguise their villages from aggressive outsiders. What they lack in physical strength, they make up for in trickiness and arcane power. Violet Faeries are natural spellcasters, able to tap into the wonder of the Feywild from an early age. This has sometimes led to chaos, but generally younglings are taught how to control the arcane power that flows all around them.
Violet Faeries live in almost an ignorant bliss. They hide themselves from the outside world, only venturing when needed. Their society is based on nobility, yet being a noble only means you are guaranteed a mate. The population of Violet Faeries is disproportionately female, who make up 70% of the population. Males are treated with great respect, as it is an honour to even have children. Violet Faeries who have not given birth are considered of lower social status. Violet Faeries are led by a single queen, usually the oldest female with the longest hair and has already given birth to her two children.

Violet Faerie Adventurers
Violet Faeries favour the Bard, Warlock, and Wizard classes. Three sample characters are described below.
Firo is a Violet Faerie Bard. After the wrongful execution of his best friend, he receded to the wilderness, disillusioned with their blissfully ignorant society. He could no longer see how their society abides by such laws. Leaving his past life behind, he took to singing of his sorrows on the road. His latent bardic abilities awakened with each tearful ode he wove in memory of his friend he had lost forever, imprinting his sorrowful will into reality through his immense sadness.
Strombo is a Violet Faerie Warlock. Although it is incredibly rare for Violet Faeries because of the limit on children they can have, Strombo was abandoned from a young age. A traveling evil Warlock took care of him, although it was with little compassion. He taught Strombo from a young age to have a lust for power regardless of what it takes. The Warlock shows Strombo that one of the more powerful patrons known as Shar has pacts with his family, and she is determined to have Strombo serve her as well. She offers him near-infinite potential, for his soul. Easy choice for him to make; his life of pain has led to him becoming evil and now his goal is to become powerful enough to get his way, and of course, serve Shar.
Kala is a Violet Faerie Wizard. She avoids major places of gathering as society's debasement disgusts her. She was chosen by the Wizard of her village over several other candidates to serve as an apprentice. He taught her to look beyond the common ignorance of their race; to have curiosity and learn to satiate it. As such, she is not afraid to venture out of her safe space to find answers to the many questions she has developed in her apprenticeship.
- Plot Note: this warlock could later take make use of Strombo in many ways
