Eldrazi (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


The origins of these massive monstrosities are unknown. They ravage worlds, looking for land to suck all energy from, and populate further until nothing is left from that lifeless world. Of all the Eldrazi, there are three titans to rule them all.

The first is Kozilek. Kozilek is a reality-breaking abomination of relentless insanity. When Kozilek or any of its brood drain the area of its mana, they leave mind-boggling geometric wastes in their wake, reminiscient of bismuth. Kozilek represents themes of deception, puzzles, lies, mind domination, transformation, and experimentation. Sages call Kozilek the confusion of panic, the trap of enigmas, and the harrower of thought. Kozilek's form is currently reforming in the Blind Eternities.

The second and the weakest is Ulamog. Ulamog is emblematic of plague, the blind bonds between parasite and host, and overabundance. When Ulamog or any of its brood drain the surrounding area of mana, they leave a chalky, grey-white material where the ground and life were. Ulamog is creation and destruction wrapped together in unholy harmony. Ulamog's form is currently reforming in the Blind Eternities.

Lastly, the most powerful and largest of the titans is Emrakul. When Emrakul or any of its brood drain the area of mana, the ground becomes fleshy/dusty and yellow, reminiscient of diseased skin. Emrakul causes silent terror wherever it soars, embodying desolation, emotional and physical distance, the chill of the void, and the terror of being alone. Emrakul is currently trapped in the moon of Innistrad.

Physical Description[edit]

The Eldrazi are abominations of all planes, colored in multiple shades of bright colors, such as blue, red and purple. Depending on the titan they came from, they could have many suckerless tentacles and bony carapaces, have eyes protruding from their entire body with impossible forms and polyhedral shapes floating above their "head" and the rest of their body, or have fungus-like skin and/or a twisted, unnatural form.

Because they have no real symmetric form, they are considered a crime against everything good.


Over a millennium ago, they wandered in realms that no mortal could survive in. They ravaged worlds, sucking all life and energy from the land. Eventually, the planeswalkers Nahiri, Ugin and Sorin sealed them away on a plane called Zendikar, inside a chamber called the Eye of Ugin.

Over time, they fought to escape, and the land fought back, developing defenses such as the Roil. Once they were sealed away the first time, peace was restored. Unfortunately enough, three other planeswalkers found the location of the Eye of Ugin, where they broke the seal, and released them once more.


There is no society for the Eldrazi. They only bow down to the Eldrazi Titan that spawned them. If you are not pulling your weight in gathering resources, or do not please your titan, you will be consumed.

Eldrazi Names[edit]

The Eldrazi are so ancient that only lore captures part of it, including the original titans names.

Those under the spawn of Ulamog usually have 'Ula' in their name. The spawn of Kozilek will have 'Koz' in their name. Finally, the spawn of Emrakul will have 'Emra' in their name.

The Eldrazi have no genders, but Ulamog and Kozilek are usually said with male pronouns, while Emrakul usually has female pronouns.

Eldrazi Traits[edit]

All Eldrazi have the same overall details, but some differences lie in which titan they spawn from. Because of this, the Eldrazi share these racial traits, but also must fall under a subrace.
