The Wingly are a race of angelic beings from the feywilds. Often benevolent, they take a form that rebels the common elf. They were chased to the dark secluded areas of the feywild, as result of losing a multi-specie war known in legend as "The Dragon Campaign". Those who remain now live in small, secular communities, rarely leaving of their own accord, though some with rebellious natures may leave out of distaste for the strict moral codes of the community, and take up life as an adventurer.

Winglies are the same basic height and weight as humans, and so can easily be confused with a human at first glance. The main difference outside of the true form is that all Winglies have platinum hair, and their eyes show the signs of their true age. Winglies can live to ages beyond those of most other races, easily counting centuries as though they were decades. Though there is no known venerable age for Winglies, the oldest Wingly is recorded to have aged over 11,000 years, the exact year even she does not know.
Playing as a Wingly
You are part of a proud race, and many of your race see others as inferior. This can lead to an extremely condescending attitude in neutral- and evil-based characters, but leads primarily to pity with good-based characters. Those few Winglies who treat other races as equals are often shunned, and sometimes banished from their home in they Feywild. The young can be brash, preferring to charge into battle at full speeds, while older Winglies tend to be slightly more reserved and cautious. However, once insulted, the Wingly’s fiery temper will not allow them to back down from a fight.

Lloyd, a powerful Wingly, though unknown to most humans, had made his life goal to transform the continent of Endiness into a utopian land. In his mission to do so, he inadvertently brought about the harbinger of its demise. Upon realizing his mistake, Lloyd fought the harbinger, and was quickly killed. Through circumstances, however, the world was saved by a group of adventurers who had previously opposed Lloyd from the beginning. The irony is laughable.
