Cartura (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


Cartura are fey creatures known for their loyalty and their hatred for elves.

Physical Description[edit]

Cartura are brown and grey-furred with long snouts, and lion-like tails. Their eyes can be any color imaginable. They are quite finesse creatures due to their forest ways and are short between 2-3 feet.


Cartura were gentle creatures that lived in the feywilds for thousands of years until an elf made a heinous insult against a cartura diplomat. This resulted in a long war known as the War of the Seventh Rosen Throne, which ended in the cartura being banished from the feywilds forever. Most cartura still harbor their strong resentment of the elven clans, however, some have managed to move past this hatred and even forget it all together. After the banishment, some Cartura could not abandon their forest ways while others of their race saw this as an opportunity to grow and change becoming more adapted to plain living.


Cartura are usually instinctively mistrustful of other races especially elves, but they often will take a liking to halflings, dragonborn and any other race that are either outcast or out of the way. For now, the Cartura live in disorganized tribes mostly with a few towns dotting their ranks. They are wise rulers and even wiser warriors.
