Chibido (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|“||A small girl took the small tavern's stage next; she was cute, hair-like oats and honey, eyes like the setting sun, and a voice that could melt even a white dragon’s frozen heart.||”|
|—Human Paladin Virgil Strega describing a chibido woman at a tavern|
The Chibido are a strange people. They are beautiful humanoids famous for their incredible singing voice, but on the other hand they are extremely small in stature. Their hair is is typically a beautiful golden blond color with some Chibido even having pure white hair. Their eye colors vary on a cool color spectrum, varying from green, to blue, to purple. Throughout their whole life, they appear similar to that of a young child and keep their young and cute appearance up until death. Most Chibido are female but male Chibido aren't uncommon. The males are wrinkled and deformed do not reap the benefits of the good looks and smooth sounding voices of their female brethren
The Chibido history is tragic but full of love and hope. Minielsheda was once a beautiful and elegant princess who was the ruler of a great land. She had looks like the stars and a voice as smooth and elegant as silk. For she was the daughter of Aeshmaniala, goddess of love and song. Minielsheda had six daughters and one son and she ruled her kingdom justly. They were a perfect family. This eventually caught the eye of a cunning witch who was jealous of their life and decided to take it all for herself. For three days she came to the families court disguised as a simple beggar and asked for three separate gifts. On the first day, she asked for a strand of hair from each family member saying how she wished that she could have hair like theirs, which the family graciously gave. The brother, who was much more vain and selfish than his siblings reluctantly gave the beggar a strand of his hair. On the second day, she told the family about her poor life and living situation. Each member of the family shed a tear for her of which the witch took. Even the brother shed a tear after hearing her story. Then, on the third day, she asked for the family's blessing and asked for a simple kiss from each member of the family. But the brother, to vain and selfish in his ways and disgusted by the woman's appearance, refused to kiss the beggar. Upon refusing to give the beggar a kiss, the witch revealed herself and set a curse upon the family. They entire family shrunk in size, and the mother and daughters appeared similar to small children, but still retained their fair skin, golden hair and a beautiful voice. The brother also shrunk is size, but for him, the witch cursed him with the same ugliness that her beggar persona possessed. His fair and young skin turned gray and wrinkly, his golden hair turned grey and brown and his beautiful, smooth voice turned harsh and raspy. In shame and disgust of his appearance, the brother ran away, but the others remained strong. Do to their diminished forms, they could not stand up to the witch and left. Instead of succumbing to fear and sorrow like the brother, they accepted their fate and moved on. From them spawned the race of Chibido.
Chibido are fairly uncommon and don’t have much of their own society. They generally dwell peacefully with Elves but can also take up residence with Humans. They enjoy Halflings willingness to party and gnome’s good humor and kindness much like their own. Female Chibido are physically unable to reproduce on their own and require another humanoid female to reproduce. Upon finding a fair female humanoid, they will give the humanoid their blessing, were upon the female will become pregnant. Chibido typically will bless Humans, Elves or Halflings. The female will give birth and the baby will appear common for their race and will have an average childhood. But prior to reaching maturity, the humanoid will go under a transformation. Females will rapidly decrease in height and weight, their hair and eyes will change color and their voices will become much smoother and more elegant, and they will apear similar to that of a young child. At the end the humanoid will have transformed into a Chibido and will be able to continue on with their lives. They are able to quickly adapt to their new forms and many say that they feel more natural and at peace with themselves. Males on the other hand will undergo a different transformation. They will rapidly decrease in height, they skin will become gray and wrinkled and they will appear revolting and ugly. Many become hateful and ashamed and will run away to hide in the deep corners of the world.
