Elves, Ivory (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
The offspring of a deeka and an elf is known as an ivory elf, named for the color of their skin. These half-breeds never quite fit into their parent’s societies. Those who are put up for adoption are often taken into churches, were they are put to good use. An ivory elf has strength greater than his (half-human) half-elven cousins.
This increase in physical strength and prowess is due to "hybrid vigor", a common occurrence between two closely-related species, where the offspring gains the best aspects of his parents. While most ivory elves are the result of crossbreeding, some are simply the offspring of two ivory elven parents.
A tale of an ivory-drow that was without weakness to light or dark, had gray skin and white hair who fought with determined malice has long been a favorite of bardic tales, but the accuracy surrounding it has never been substantiated.
Ivory elves raised in deekan society, tend to behave more like their deeka parent. However, when raised outside deekan cities, they tend to be reserved and thoughtful, but with no less perseverance and determination.
Ivory elves appear noble, with sleek ivory skin, striking platinum blond hair and cold pale eyes. They also retain the small shoulder protuberances of their deekan parentage. Ivory elves also have more sylvan features and are slightly shorter than their deeka parent, but taller than their elven parent. They grow to slightly over-tall human height, but are very statuesque. The unfamiliar often can confuse them with celestials or aasimars.
Ivory elves have no predetermination toward a preferred alignment.
Ivory elves live in either homeland of their parents. With such small numbers, they hold no lands of their own.
Ivory elves practice religion as either of their parents.
Ivory elves speak Common, Elven and Deeka.
Ivory elves carry names from either of their bloodlines, depending on where they were raised. If orphaned, ivory elves are often named after celestial beings or angels.
