Cosmic Elf (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Elfs affected by the astral plane on a molecular level and now possessing unique powers.
Cosmos elves are extremely similar to normal elves, but their bodies always have a characteristic that reflects their cosmic origin and sub-race.
Starchilds usually have hair that constantly floats around like the "flames" of the sun, their hair has various colors from the color spectrum, and they are able to change the color of their hair as they go through life (the whiter, the older the elf).
Planetary Child are robust and their movements are slightly rigid, like a planet with its tectonic plates moving, their bodies are also extremely well defined and have phenomenal health and physical capabilities, even among Cosmo Elves.
Moon Child, are more delicate like the moon, with a delicate and even feminine appearance (it is common for a male Moon Child to be mistaken for a woman). Moon Childs have smooth, pale skin, delicate voices, and fluid movements like water.
The Meteoric Children are a strange variation, often born out of relationships between known and unknown types of Cosmos Elf, they possess characteristics of both their father and mother, sometimes they can have the delicate appearance of a Moonchild but the muscular body of a Planetary Child, however they are the most common to be seen around, as they tend to strangely wander wherever they are trying to figure out what they are perfectly
Starchilds are most commonly male
Planetary Child are perfectly divided between both genders
Moon Childs are most commonly female
Eons ago, a group of elves decided to venture into the vast cosmos, and over time, an elf was banished to the Astral plane for a crime that history, long forgotten, cannot tell if she did it herself or not. Because of the Astral Energy united with the Cosmic Energy, she became the First Cosmos Elf, as the eons passed, each of the new elves that were born, gained more and more characteristics of the astronomical objects, clans emerged initially and because of this they were constantly at war, but after a specific elf with a Name that means Light appeared, he managed to unite all the clans into one family, this family is now known as Galactia and because of this, the Cosmos elves tend to keep themselves isolated at a distance, trying to avoid getting out of the delicate attunement they reached to go back to the Chaos of the past
The Cosmos Elf Society is something that mimics the cosmos itself, with each family normally having a Starchild as their main member (Patriarch or Matriarch) and with several Planetary Childs close to and obidient to them, all of whom in turn are below the very rare BlackHole Born (very little is known about these, since they only command a whole galaxy of families from a distance) and finally the BlackHole Borns are below the Cosmos Elf Gods.
Due to the energy that altered these elves, they separate themselves from the Elven Gods and worship their own Gods, the First Elven Cosmos and the 12 Constellation.
Cosmos Elf Names
Cosmos Elf names are very close to common elven names, but usually giving a characteristic relating to the Cosmos or Cosmology. You can name your Cosmos Elf anyway you like, but remember they tend to use names related to the Cosmos or Cosmology (As Eons, Quark, Neutron and etc).

Extended Cosmic Elf
This part of the race is completely optional and not recommended for a normal campaign. This part will only be balanced if other players and DMs also use Expanded Races or Your DM use this race as base for an expansion of other players' races (for a better understanding of what a race expansion looks like and giving credit where I got this idea from, see Enpowered Races).
This was done in order to allow your choice of race to influence your choice of race beyond the lv1 choice and to represent your character becoming more powerful and accessing more power within your own race.
Upon reaching Lv3 you receive +1 proficiency of your choice to your Cosmos Trance and your Cosmos Trance can now give proficiency in Tools and Armors.
