Florges (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|A red Florges. Source|
Florges are slender Pokémon with a white upper body and a green lower body separated by two black diamond-shaped markings on its chest. Its head is rounded with a pointed, upturned nose, long drooping ears, and dark eyes with long green eyelashes. It has thin arms ending in three tiny fingers. Its lower body resembles a mermaid's tail with two large leaves sprouting above the tail-fin. Its most prominent feature, the bouquet of flowers that surround its head, are predominantly red, yellow, orange, blue, or white, though smaller flowers of different colors can also be found in their head-bouquet. Interestingly, white Florges are the rarest.
Strangely enough, some Florges have been known to, in only extremely rare instances, possess green colored diamond markings on its chest instead of black and purple lower bodies and eyelashes instead of green.
Florges, along with their Flabébé and Floette offspring, were originally discovered in the flower fields of Kalos, but only Flabébé and Floette have been found in other regions, namely the flower meadows of the Alola region. Oddly enough, only Flabébé with yellow, orange and white flowers have been found in Alola, but Floettes holding flowers of those colors along with blue and red can be found. Though wild Florges have not been seen in Alola, it is believed this is due to the rarity of shiny stones in the region.
Before a sprout blooms into a beautiful flower, it must first start as a seed. Such is the case with Florges. These gorgeous garden pokemon start out as a Flabébé - a very tiny (usually just 4 inches tall), white fey with yellow healing pollen around its head in the shape of a flower crown that clings to special flowers known as "Fairy Flowers" by the stigma. This flower is very important to the Flabébé because it requires the hidden power of its flower, which it controls and draws out, in order to survive. If it ever loses its flower, it will immediately begin looking for a new one or cling to someone it trusts until it finds a replacement. As it clings to the flower, it lets itself be carried by the wind, though it is capable of moving the flower on its own.
After approximately two decades, the Flabébé will eventually turn into a Floette, which results in it doubling in size, growing green eyelashes and it's lower half growing two small leaves at the end. Instead of holding the stigma of the fairy flower, it instead holds it by the stem. While it still draws power from its flower and uses it to battle, it has now developed powers of its own and uses them to tend to wilting flowers. Floettes care so deeply about flowers that they will never forgive someone who messes up a flower bed.
Once exposed to a shiny stone, the inner magic a Floette has developed over its life reacts, causing it to fuse with the flower it has clung to for so long resulting in it becoming a Florges. These garden matrons claim vast meadows and exquisite flower gardens as its territory. Such is the power and majesty of a Florges that governors of castles would seek them out to create flower gardens to embellish the castle domains. They are said to devote their entire lives to protecting gardens.

Legends tell of a Floette with a blue colored lower half and eyelashes who clung to a mysterious, red and black flower - a flower so rare that only one other specimen is known to exist. As the legend goes, this floette was befriended by the ancient king of Kalos thousands of years ago but was killed during a great war. Using a weapon to draw out the life energy of pokemon, the king ended the war and brought his friend back to life, who then left him after realizing the destruction he caused. Ever since the king wandered the land attempting to locate his friend. Three thousand years later, after being defeated by a young individual who had recently become the Kalos Champion, the grief and guilt he harbored for so long was lifted and the Floette returned to him, the flower it held on to still in full bloom. The fact that the flower it held was still in bloom after all this time, and the fact it was still alive after 3 millennia, earned it the name "Eternal Flower Floette". It is unknown if this Floette ever became a Florges.
Florges can be found in meadows, valleys and even swamps caring for not just Flabébé and Floette but also for any pokemon that dwell in their domain as well. Though they mostly prefer to be out in the wild, caring for pokemon and flowers, finding them in human society is not uncommon, as they are often sought after by gardeners and governors alike to help embellish flower gardens and help beautify the area. Due to how rare white Florges are, they are the most sought after by nobles. It doesn't help that it is often thought that white florges being stronger than other Florges, but these rumors are completely unfounded and are most likely based on its rarity.
Florges, being a race exclusively made of females, have female names which are usually Sylvan, but they will sometimes pick a Common name if they chose to live in human society.
