Spriggan

Physical Description

Made from living vines, trees, and other plants the spriggan are one of the stranger races of the Feywild. Spriggan have a roughly humanoid shape, but typically have dark, barklike skin—and where a human has hair, a spriggan has springy moss or supple leaves. Spriggan, as nature spirits, are most at home in forests and grassy hills, but there are more than a few reports of spriggan making their homes in parks within cities.

Society

Defender of One, Protector of All. All spriggan are driven by the innate urge to protect, be it an ideal, a person, a place, or an entire people. They have been known to guard locations such as magical springs, mushroom circles, and tree groves due to feelings of connection to the place. Likewise a spriggan may serve another fey or—rarely—a mortal acting as an eternal bodyguard. These feelings of protection often lead the spriggan to find themselves joining druidic circles or swearing a paladin’s oath. High-ranking members of the Summer Court employ battalions of spriggan to keep safe their fortresses within the Feywild, protecting their borders against invasions from the Shadowfell.

Humorless Sentinels. The fey are renowned for strong emotions and their willful-yet-carefree attitudes. Though their thoughts and motives are completely inscrutable, they always wear their feelings on their sleeves. Spriggan are an emotionless exception. Satyrs and other jokesters think them humorless sticks-in-the-mud. In the Feywild, something unusual or out-of-place is idiomatically described as “a laughing spriggan.” The spriggan don’t understand that idiom, either.

Bloom into Being. Spriggan are genderless and do not reproduce like most other races. During each spriggan’s life, it enters a dormant phase called budding. During this time the spriggan asks a creature it has formed a personal bond with to protect their charge in their stead, so they may retreat into seclusion for one year. Over that year, the spriggan’s buds take root in the ground, and their parent brings water and mulch to nourish them. At the end of the year, new spriggan spring forth from the soil fully grown and filled with the impulse to find a charge to defend.
