Physical Description[edit]

Foxfolk are foxlike humanoids who are slender and walk around on two legs. They have mostly red fur with some white and black fur.


Long ago, a clever fox heard rumors that a very famous and powerful wizard was searching for an ancient artifact. The fox had recently been blessed with the ability to talk and so he searched for the wizard. He then led the wizard to the ancient artifact that the wizard had been searching for. The fox knew where it was because he had hidden it. In return, the fox asked for a human body. The wizard refused to turn him into a human saying that he was beautiful as he was. The fox convinced the wizard to turn the fox and his family into the first Foxfolk.


Foxfolk live in hidden villages deep in forests. They typically avoid other races and only interact with them if necessary. They are seen as pickpockets and thieves to most others and are treated as such. Foxfolk hunt at night and only hunt what they need, never for sport. Foxfolk towns are filled to the brim with shops selling are sorts of goods. Foxfolks often have festivals at equinoxes and solstices that usually last for a week. Foxfolk worship the seasons and have gods according to such. At 13, all Foxfolk undergo a rite of passage, and if they succeed they are seen as an adult.


The Foxfolk are led by the Fox King who they see as a god and they believe that the king is behind the seasons. The Fox King's palace is in the Feywild, and can only be found with the help of a Foxfolk. All Foxfolk know how to get there and many Foxfolk live there. Every year, all the Foxfolk migrate to the Feywild to celebrate their king.
