This humanoid-like fey stands less than a foot tall, and is seemingly of rough stock. Instead of wings, they have wisps of vibrant energy seeping out of their backs, forming the shape of ethereal wings on which they carry themselves. Quite attuned to the nature as they are, these little fey are fierce protectors of their woods and congregate happily in villages made of countless tiny houses cut out of the bark of the giant trees.
Preternaturally tough for their size, Merwyl stand an average of about 14 inches tall, their ethereal wings growing out in four distinct, thin shapes. Their flight is a form of magical propulsion that even inexperienced Merwyl can boast to master to great heights.
These creatures prefer to battle with druidic or divine magic, but will fight fiercely with surprising martial cunning when they are attacked in order to stave off the potential undesirables.
These merwyl are masters of nature, using their honed skills in order to stave off those who would do ill to the woods in which they live.
