Fallen Human

Physical Description

Fallen humans are physically identical to normal humans; however, their souls are completely different. A fallen human's soul can take on one of 7 different properties: determination, patience, bravery, integrity, perseverance, kindness, or justice. Each property reflects the personality of the fallen human and gives them unique traits and abilities. The soul of a fallen human is incredibly powerful and is fully capable of persisting on the mortal plane, far after their owner's death.


Long ago humans and monsters lived together in harmony, but one day it was discovered that monsters had the ability to absorb human souls, and become frighteningly powerful. Humanity, despite knowing that monsters were too kind and merciful to harm anyone with this power, attacked them out of fear. During the short-lived "War of Humans and Monsters," humanity slaughtered countless monsters, with fallen humans leading the charge, before sealing the rest of them beneath Mt. Ebott, using the magic of 7 human wizards. As thousands of years passed, monsters faded into legends and so did the abilities of fallen humans. Most humans, despite forgetting that monsters exist, are superstitious of Mt. Ebott, since those that climb it never return. That superstition never stopped a handful of children, who ventured up the mountain and fell into the underground, where monsterkind was still residing. Most of those children were killed and their souls were taken, but eventually, the barrier, that kept monsterkind sealed underground, was destroyed and a small fallen human helped monsterkind incorporate themselves into human society.


Fallen humans are just another part of human society. They interact, form bonds, and procreate with other humans, so most of them will never discover their incredible abilities, but they can under two specific conditions. If a fallen human comes in contact with powerful magic, or a member of the monster race, their soul type will be revealed to them. Upon discovering their soul type, they gain access to its unique traits.

Fallen Human Names

Fallen humans appear to have a different naming structure than other humans. Instead of having traditionally male and female names, the names they give their children are gender neutral, or unisex.

Soul Type

Determination (Red Soul)

"Determination is the most basic of human qualities; however, a fallen human, who embodies determination, takes that concept to its illogical extreme. As someone who embodies determination, you never give up, no matter what."
Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 1.
Unbreakable Will. No matter what pain your mind or body is forced to endure, you stubbornly refuse to give up. Whenever you make a death saving throw you can add your proficiency bonus to the roll.

Patience (Light Blue / Cyan Soul)

"Patience is a very basic virtue, but it's still one of the most important ones. Many believe that good things come to those who wait and you couldn't agree more. As someone who embodies patience, you're not only more likely to live longer, but also make fewer mistakes."
Ability Score Increase. Your Wisdom score increases by 1.
Cumulative Wisdom. The wisdom you've gained over the years has made you become much more cautious and skeptical of the world around you. You have advantage on Wisdom saving throws against magic.

Bravery (Orange Soul)

"True bravery has always been a commodity. There are plenty of people who don't realize the real danger of a situation and charge in blindly, but there are also those who only pretend to be brave. As someone who embodies true bravery, you never back down from a challenge, no matter the odds, but you're not reckless either, at least not completely."
Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 1.
Courage. No matter how terrifying a foe may be, you never falter. You have advantage on saving throws against being frightened.
Go for Broke. You believe that whoever strikes first will win, so you intend to do just that. During your first turn in combat, you have advantage on your first attack roll.

Integrity (Blue Soul)

"Integrity is not something that is easily maintained. Life is full of temptations and difficult decisions; however, those that can keep their integrity intact live their lives with far less guilt and uncertainty. As someone who embodies integrity, you draw strength from it, giving you incredible mental and spiritual strength."
Ability Score Increase. Your Wisdom score increases by 1.
Moral Strength. Both peer pressure and magical influences are always around you, but despite that, you stick to your moral code. Your soul resonates with your choice, giving you a clear head and a surge of confidence. You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed.
Mental Fortitude. By continuing to stand by your moral code, you've strengthened both your mind and soul, giving you resistance to psychic damage.

Perseverance (Purple Soul)

"Perseverance is a trait commonly found in adventurers, but only the greatest of them will ever truly embody it, and the same could be said for any profession. Life is difficult, unfair, and cruel, so only those with the strength to keep moving forward will be able to reach the top. As someone who embodies perseverance, this world will never break you, but that doesn't mean it won't try..."
Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 1.
Second Wind. Despite what your enemies believe, being knocked down doesn't mean you're finished. Your burning desire to keep moving forward and win resonates deep within your soul. When you are reduced to 0 hit points but not killed outright, you can drop to 1 hit point instead. You can’t use this feature again until you finish a long rest.

Kindness (Green Soul)

"Kindness is a subtle, yet powerful, force. Those who show it to others not only improve their lives but also their own. As someone who embodies kindness, you know this better than anyone. As you continue to make the lives of those around you better, your resolve to keep showing others your kindness only grows stronger."
Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 1.
Selfless Nature. When a creature attacks your ally within 10 feet of you, you may use your reaction to move up to your ally and take the attack instead. You become the target of the attack, and it hits you automatically, however you take half as much damage from this attack. You can use this ability a number of times equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum of once). You regain any expended uses when you finish a long rest.

Justice (Yellow Soul)

"Justice, and in what degree it should be applied, is easily the most subjective concept on the planet. Everyone's moral standards are shaped by their own unique experiences growing up, as well as, by those they surrounded themselves with. When someone feels like they've been wronged, they desire revenge, and they do so out of their own sense of justice; however, there are those who believe that true justice can only be determined by the law. Either way, humans that have a strong sense of justice feel the need to act. As someone who embodies justice, you refuse to stand aside and let someone wrong you or those you care about, so in one way or another, for better or for worse, you take action."
Ability Score Increase. Your Strength score increases by 1.
Vengeance. You're willing to let some transgressions slide, but when someone hurts those you care about, you feel a strong desire to make them pay for it. When a hostile creature deals damage to an ally within 30 feet of you, you may choose to give yourself advantage on your next attack roll against that creature. In addition, if that attack hits, you may roll damage twice and choose the higher of the two rolls. After you use this ability, you can't use it again until you finish a short or long rest.
