"You should leave," said the young fawn, "You aren't welcome here." Although Aark was young, even for a fawn, he spoke with such confidence and eloquence that I felt like I should at least back off. These blue and black creatures just prove how little we truly know of magic, and life as well.
—Bookame Daeran, Naodle's List of Magical Oddities

These deer-like fey live in caves or burrows in forests, especially nearby Feywild entrances. They are impressive gardeners who adapted a skillful method of climbing to get to the top of trees.

People of the Night[edit]

These nocturnal people learned to live in the dark to not be up when most predators are.

Skilled Gatherers[edit]

As a naturally herbivorous humanoid race in a world of magic, the fawns quickly adapted to the surrounding world. They learned to use magic to grow the plant life around them so they're in no short supply of food.

Exceptionally Quick[edit]

Fawns have adapted from having to escape from larger predators, and so are much faster than other races of their size and learned how to climb the trees in the forests that house them.

Fawn Names[edit]

Fawns have soft names that are pronounced strangely.

Male: Aark, Col, Eri, Gad, Isk, Kan, Lag, Mune

Female: Amia, Citu, Ena, Glim, Isia, Klim, Liyn, May
