Half-Pixie (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|“||Little tricksters, I'll get you for this!||”|
|—Angry elf at Half-Pixie|
Cute as a kitten and mischievous as a fox Half-Pixies are the curious trouble children of humans and pixies. These little tricksters are as diverse as humans and as loved by nature as pixies. They are one of the friendliest races you'll ever meet but keep their pixie parents caution. Because they are typically raised by their human parents they wear more common attire such as cotton pants and shirts with leather boots yet still try to stay fashionable. Make a friend of one of these little beings and you'll find yourself a steadfast friend, just be ready for the occasional prank or two.
Because of their heritage Half-Pixies have strong ties to magic and nature, some are even powerful enough to enter the Feywild on a whim. Thier Pixie blood draws them to nature which often leads them to become rangers and druids to protect it.
Most Half-Pixies have wings like their parents and enjoy using them. As they skim through the sky a trail of shining dust comes off their wings, unlike their parents their dust cannot grant flight but still grant the various other effects of Pixie dust. Half-Pixie wings are able to fold into their backs so they don't have to worry about blending into human society.
Half-Pixies just like humans seek out adventure and to earn glory in the eyes of their fellows. This drive often sends them down various path forcing them to be adaptable opportunists looking for any way to further their goals. While they have little in the way of written history they have a long and precise oral history. They achieve this by imbuing this history into magical words. Every Half-Pixie is taught the history and how to tell others.
Half-Pixies stand close to dwarves in height but have a more human physic and boast large clear insectoid wing with extravagant designs. These wings are typically luminescent and hidden just beneath the skin. Half-Pixies keep more human skin tones but still have natural hair colors like greens, yellows, browns, and reds. Their bodies are lighter than they appear this is so they can fly with less effort.
This race is only a century and a half younger than humans but their history is quite sparse. This is because Half-Pixies pass down their history through a special magic song called the Song of Past which they developed some years ago. Half-Pixies are very protective of their history and only tell their young after they pass their Ritual Maturation Trials.
Half-Pixies tend to be raised by their human parents as the Pixie parent tends to prefer to be free from responsibilities. While Half-Pixies don't mind human society they would rather spend time with each other in nature. Half-Pixies will seek out Half-Pixie villages or found them in the treetops of large forests. Half-Pixies born into these villages are free spirits that enjoy roaming the village and the surrounding area. Half-Pixies dislike marriage and enjoy community relations. All Half-Pixie villages participate in the Ritual Maturation Trials on the Harvest Night and Spring Eve after they turn 100. While open to visitors on any other occasion Half-Pixie villages will do their best to keep this trial a secret even to the point of killing intruders. After the trials are completed those who pass are taught the Song of Past and are given their village's unique tattoo. Half-Pixies can identify each other through these tattoos. Half-Pixie elders have an additional tattoo above the first in the form of a single red circle. Half-Pixie elders are chosen on the Winter Solstice every thirteen years by an Archfey or god.
Half-Pixies names are picked out by whichever parent raises them. If they are born into a Half-Pixie village their first name is given after the completion of the Ritual Maturation Trials. Until the completion of their trials they are called Pombis and Levbos, male and female respectively. First names are derived from natural elements and plants
