Fornraeth (3.5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
A Fornraeth is a demon. They come from the top of an unrecorded mountain which is so remote and northern that no mortal can go there, which is exactly what they wanted when they came to the mortal realm. Nevertheless they come down from their hiding spot and attempt to fit in to their surroundings; when they get down from their mountain they try to act like any other mortal, or, at least more like a mortal than they were in their homeland.
Fornraeths are not unlike elves, with an average height of 5 to 5 1/2 feet. But their weight is more than a human's; 130 to 200 lb. the female is about a quarter inch shorter than the males and weighs about 5 pounds lighter. short, steady, and well balanced. Their hair is normally black when mature, and the rare pre-mature Fornraeth that enter to the mortal realm or is born there has mainly maroon hair, and while a maturing Fornraeth they may appear to have black hair with maroon highlights. they have ashen black skin, when they grow old they may have red cracks on it, but that's rare. Fornreaths also mainly have dark or light red eyes. So all together they look like a typical humanoid demon, except that they don't have horns and rather than Albinos, they have what they call Loss flad, or "snow skinned" in elven, which is when all their skin, eyes, hair, etc. are basically inverted, but not precisely, they are basically what they're called; snow skinned, so they look like ice demons or something.
They were normal clothes, but in the south you may catch them freezing their clothes to keep cool or even cold, because they are most comfortable in freezimg weather.
A Fornraeth reaches adulthood at age 140, and they can live forever if they are in their realm, otherwise they live up to about 750-1000 years.
Fornreathes get along with a lot of creature (if they friendly) and pointy-eared races (because that indicates a non-human) and half-orc and dwarves. They despise humans for whatever reason, but its possible for a Fornraeth to befriend a human.
Fornraethes can be any alignment, but it was noticed that a larger percentage of them are evil or neutral.
Fornreathes like the cold, so they mainly live up north. And their own realm was guessed to be an icy wasteland, but Fornraeth citizens refuse to utter a word about their homeland.
There's never a majority for Fornreathe's deities, but most prefer not to worship anything.
Fornraethes speak Elven, Draconic, and other creature-based languages.
Everyone in the mortal realm lacks the necessary tongue to say any Fornraethan names, so they prefer to use elven names.
