Physical Description[edit]

Dryad, Pauline Baynes for Narnia

The average member of the Chaik race has a fair build, skin resembling birch bark, and has hair in shades between red and blonde. They have birthmarks that resemble tree knots in color, but they do not emerge from the skin. Chaik eyes vary between the colours of blue and yellow.

History[edit]

They haven't kept a compendium of their history. The here and now of the land is too important for that. All they know is that they have been neutral in most past conflicts.

Society[edit]

The Chaik race is native to the Feywild. They have never been on any side, Seelie, Unseelie, LeShay, or Eladrin. They hold their own. Their society is very widespread and mostly unregulated, as they have no central government. They mostly either have small nomadic camps they live in or live together in groups in towns. In small towns, they can often be found in the role of medicine man or woman. Chaik culture promotes modest clothing that doesn't grab attention. However, their religious and ritualistic garb is very colorful and elaborate. Any given Chaik will probably know their way around their neck of the Feywild. Even with this knowledge of the place, they are often pessimistic and chaotic in their rationale. They have a distinct preference for theatre and the arts over social or technological progress.
