Physical Description[edit]

Lightborn are humans who are somehow infused with positive energy.



They are typically brave and noble heroes. Native outsiders that had in their blood some good, otherworldly characteristics. They were often, but not always, descended from angels and other creatures of pure good alignment, although some are self righteous over-zealots who take drastic steps for the "greater good" and are by no means always good. Lightborn are indistinguishable from humans although when they use their abilities, their hair glows gold. Exceptionally rare throughout Toril, And or Eberron and, as such, had no true cities or societies of their own a LightBorn could live for the whole of their life's without ever meeting another of their kind and, as such, were resigned to living amongst other races alone.
