Elf Subrace[edit]

The lythari are lycanthropic elves that were able to change into elves. They were always good and aligned with the goddess Selune. Unlike werewolves, they either fully transformed into wolves or elves, not in between. Even in their wolf forms, they remained friendly to people and are considered true lycanthropes. They originated from groups of wood elves and propagate through a consensual bonding ritual which turns another party into a lythari. While they liked to hunt, they disliked violence outside that context. They often got along with wild normal wolves and warred against evil ones like worgs.
