Innocent (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
Innocents appear to be young children on the outside and even act nigh identical to them. However, Innocents are still aware of their true nature and will show it if need be. One of the main reasons it is so difficult to find innocents is that they hid in plain sight. They blend in perfectly with children, and only masters of observation and the most attentive can find clues to their true nature.
First is the Devil Child. This creature is usually connected to a hellish figure, namely Satan, and was sent to the mortal realm to collect souls for him. However, some say that a Devil Child means no harm, and only devours souls due to their demonic instincts. There exists a tale of a girl named Lucy, a Devil Child, who came to the mortal realm. She encountered many allies and enemies, and as she grew to understand humans and the other mortal races, she began to shed her demonic ways. It is said that she is still out there, to this day, doing her best to be a kind soul. Many Devil Children are stated to be completely Chaotic Evil, though may are, in fact, Chaotic Good. A minute portion, like Lucy, even try to be Lawful Good.
Second, we have the Pure Bloods. These Innocents are always pacifists and do their best to end conflict when possible. They specialize in healing others and bringing peace to those around them. Adventurers, common folk, and even villains of all races and backgrounds have told tales of what they believed to be their demise. When they closed their eyes, they had accepted their fate. Yet, to their surprise, they eventually woke up, with their wounds healed. It is said that when this happens, the faint laugh of a happy child could be heard in the distance. Pure Bloods are always Lawful Good unless a law is specifically aiming to harm someone. They are always on the side of pacifism.
Last, but certainly not least, we have Spazzes. These Innocents contain more energy than a power plant. Jumping from place to place and thought to thought is completely normal among them. Spazzes are incredibly fast thinkers and runners. Their biggest struggle is attempting to focus and stay still. There have been a few accounts of people reporting they think they saw a child run past them at inhuman speeds, yet weren't quite sure, as it was moving too fast to truly tell. Although Spazzes are often trouble makers, they do their best to be Lawful Good, though they are more often Neutral Good or True Neutral.
Innocents have been regarded as "wonder children" throughout history. There are many different tales about Innocents, ranging from great heroic deeds to causing anarchy. No matter where you go, or how far back you look, you are sure to find these remarkable children appear in tomes and even wall carvings. Although they are called Innocents, they have been known to go by "Children of the Divine."
