Fey Mice (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Fey mice are tiny little creatures that are only about a foot tall at most. They have short white fur and large, shiny dark eyes. Their hands have four fingers and they are a digitigrade species with three toes. They have two small feelers above their eyes between their huge flaps of ears, and their tail ends in a slight nub. Their fur is known to be luminescent. Aura leaf fey mice have a greenish glow about them while spirit flame fey mice have a reddish orange glow. This glow is lost once they take a humanoid form.
Fey mice naturally grow from spirit trees. These forest giants are rare wonders of the Feywilds. they require particular weather to maintain, which makes them a rarity in the unpredictable climate of the Feywilds. From their roots, they draw from the richness of magical energies inherent in fey on the plane, pooling it within their giant hollows. From these pools, a fey mouse will coalesce in form. These hollows double as nests for newborns. Despite this unnatural birth, they are purely fey, as they are born from the raw energies coursing through the realm itself. Fey mice are known to interact a lot with the uroa, particularly those exiled from their groups. They take care about the forests where the wilder fey would trample or eat them.
These tiny fey live among nests and communities formed by trees in small patches of forests. Fey mice society has three tribes that they can belong to: Sasacinos, Fymītes, and Dræthè. There are also eight other lesser known tribes: Jetūiīts, Yrirœ, Tiopå, Herēt, Saêr, Kikisdr, Žćars, and Qìuneene. Usually, these tribes remain scattered and separate, each occupied only with their own territory. The better known three of the eleven do not impose on the other eight, for example. However, as sensitive fey of the light, the fey mice bear the disproportionately large burden of protecting other fey from invaders of darkness. The tribes will band together in such times of need. They usually also act as support for other fey, being able to enhance combat abilities or heal through their magic.
