Aseri (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Aseri visually look like humans. The only notable difference is that they don’t have eyes. Instead it looks as if there is just light in their eye sockets. This light can be any color you prefer. Aseri that receive the family gift at birth have a metal sphere that floats around them. This sphere is made of an unidentified metal, but can have veins of color streaked through it.
Centuries ago a curious woman, with the last name of Aseri, unearthed a mysterious and alien magic while exploring. The magic flooded into her body on contact, but she couldn’t figure out what it was. It seemed to have no effect so she chose to tell no one of her discovery until she could understand it herself. Years passed and she had all but forgotten the foreign magic living inside her, until she birthed her son. Her son appeared normal except for the fact that he had no eyes, and instead light poured from where they should have been. If this was the only thing out of place then it might have been blown over, but one more oddity took place. A being of pure light appeared shortly after the birth of the child, and it brought with it a perfect sphere of metal. The sphere floated out of the figures hand and hovered beside the newborn infant. The figure, now believed to be a god, left leaving the sphere. The news of the peculiar events of the child’s birth spread like wildfire throughout the village. People avoided the woman and her husband, some due to superstition others due to reverence. The child was believed to be blessed by the gods and the family was left alone. As the child grew it became clear that the sphere was connected to him. From the start he was able to form the sphere into simple shapes, and as he reached maturity he was able to form any tool or weapon he chose. His eyes were determined to be a result of his connection to the divine being that gave him the sphere. Eventually, he had a family and the same event took place at his children’s births. He passed his knowledge of the power down to his children and then to their own, over time they began to understand more about the sphere and their power, but no Aseri has ever been able to speak with the mysterious figure that grants them their powers. As there became more generations less Aseri received a sphere. An Aseri who doesn’t receive a sphere cannot have a child that receives a sphere.

As a bonus action you can morph your sphere into any tool, weapon or instrument you are proficient in (If you are looking to dual wield it is possible to split it into two light weapons). The sphere can absorb other weapons, tools, or instruments during a long rest and can then transform into them. An example of this feature is if you find a +1 longsword, and are proficient with the longsword, you can have the sphere absorb it over a long rest and then turn your sphere into a +1 longsword. This works with magic weapons, but not magic items unless you somehow have proficiency with the item. You can make your sphere release a weapon, tool, or instrument it has absorbed over a long rest.
