Half-Fairy (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


"I have to protect my people." A half-fairy says when his forest is attacked. The day started off as any other, with the morning sun peeking through the trees of the sacred forest. By midday, the whole forest would be engulfed in a demonic fire. The half-fairy did every thing he could do to protect the forest from attacking Demons.

Three giant red creatures stomp through the forest burning everything in their path. The half-fairy springs into action to defeat the demons. But the power of one half-fairy is not enough to defeat these invaders. Within hours of their arrival, the demons had used their power to destroy everything in the forest. The demons are gone, but the forest lies in ashes as one of the last remaining half-fairies vows revenge on those who destroyed his home. -Thomas Dermody loosely based on Seven Deadly Sins

Physical Description[edit]

Half-fairies range in height from about 3 to 4 feet tall, and look like short, skinny elves with large pointy ears. Half-fairies skin ranges from a host of normal skin tones to a few copper and bronze skin tones. Their back contains a set of large butterfly or beetle style wings and eyes that colors swirl with a primary and secondary color such as green, blue, purple, black, and yellow being the most common. They are also known to flaunt jewelry and fancy clothing either because of their upbringing or their nature.


Thousands of years ago, a elf met up with a fairy and history was made. They produced a half fairy half elf hybrid. With the skills of both elves and fairies, they are one of the few half breed races that aren't hated by their parent communities, in fact they are highly respected by both fairies and elves. They inherit great magic abilities from the fairy side and incredible agility from their elven side, and the two races' shared love of forests is even stronger in them. They truly are the best of both worlds.


The half-fairies tend to live in great numbers within sacred forests blessed by various Gods and Goddesses pertaining to nature. As such, they are indestructible aside from unholy fire, they are also often secluded and rarely visited by by races other than half-fairies. They generally are distrustful of other races who enter the forest. They have a natural love of all nature, and will never do anything to harm the natural world.

Half-Fairy Names[edit]

Much like other half races, half-fairies generally have either fairy or elf names, based on who they are raised by. If raised by elves, they will follow the elven tradition of having a child name until they declare themselves adults and then select an adult name for themselves. However, if raised by the fairy half, they will have names more typical of fairies, that is to say that they usually take elven names or plant names.
