Fusilier (5e Race)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


I saw an Aasimar once, but she was strange, had things coming from her lower back. I thought it was odd, but she told me that the gods had not forsaken me.
—Tavern drunk
She came from above, weaving spells and empowering our warriors against the goblin threat. The next thing we knew, she threw divine light down upon them, killing them with ease while healing our wounded.

Physical Description[edit]

Astrisk Kome, Winged Fusilier

At first glance, Fusiliers seem like humans, especially when seen from the front with their wings folded. However, they are different in many ways from Aarakocra or Aasimar. Their wings are located on their lower back, accompanied by a large feathered tail that grants them superior aerial skills compared to the other two races. They also lack feathers outside of their wings and tail, and their hands have talons, setting them apart from Aarakocra. While using their wings, they may resemble Aasimar, but closer inspection reveals their distinct nature.


Believing themselves secluded from the other races of Faerun, the Fusiliers have maintained several settlements across the continents. However, this seclusion is far-fetched as they have fought in numerous wars alongside the other races of the realm, considering themselves equals. They do, however, have no respect for laws that cause suffering to others and have ended up stirring up trouble on pilgrimages.


Fusiliers are more nomadic than other races and prefer to live around mountains and other high areas. While some permanent settlements exist, they are mostly inhabited by elders, children, and parents. At an early age, Fusiliers are encouraged to embark on long journeys, either by visiting other settlements or exploring the lands. Some choose never to return to their villages.

Fusiliers have become adept at trading goods. They engage in trade involving mining, clothing, and lumber with other settlements belonging to various races, as they do not hold malice toward any particular race.
