Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Innate Magic is different from the standard innate spellcasting such as Infernal Legacy, but the main problem is gaining the 3rd level spell blink at 2nd level.

House-Elf[edit]

House-Elves is a race based on creatures of the same name from the Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling.

Physical Description[edit]

House-elves are between two to three feet tall, with spindly arms and legs and over-sized heads and eyes. They have pointed, bat-like ears and high, squeaky voices. Rather than conventional clothing, house-elves wear discarded items like pillowcases and tea-towels.

Society[edit]

House-elves are often owned by older wizarding families who live in large houses. They aren't usually considered a person and are similar to a slave or a servant.

House-Elf Names[edit]

Most known house-elves are given names by their master(s). They are often odd.

Male: Dobby, Kreacher, and Hooky are names of some known male house-elves in Harry Potter.

Female: Winky and Hokey are names of some known female house-elves in Harry Potter.

Obedience. A house-elf must obey any commands given to them by their masters. At times, they seem to desire to disobey these orders, but as their master's orders are "the house-elf's highest law," they cannot, and are forced to punish themselves if they do( If an order is disobeyed by a house-elf with a master they must take 1d4+Strength) . However, a house-elf may find loopholes within their master's or mistress's orders. A house-elf can only be freed when their master presents them with clothes.
Innate Magic. House-elves may use magic to protect a master or complete tasks. At level 1 House-elves know the spell mage hand and witch bolt. At level 2 house-elves can use the spell blink, but must take a short rest before cast blink again. INT is your spell casting modifier when casting these spells.
