Physical Description[edit]

Omikyri are fey creatures that vaguely resemble humanoids with the heads of deer that love the shine of metallic objects almost as much as the beauty of nature, caring not for the value humanoids place on them, but rather to see their shine. In their humanoid form, they can appear as any humanoid. However, to fool someone that makes an Insight roll against this form, the Omikyr must make a surpassing Performance roll. In their hybrid form, which is most common in the Feywild, they appear like an anthropomorphic deer. When in its deer form, an Omikyr appears like a completely normal deer. Its gender follows it through these stages. Females will not have antlers while males will.



Omikyri also have some innate spellcasting that they use to distract foes, or to lead them astray, but they mostly use it to hide away their collections for safekeeping. They can also use their magic to transform from their normal forms to a humanoid form or into the form of a deer. It is said that each and every one carries a magical sack that it uses to store everything it finds, and never runs out of space, though the sack can only be seen, touched, or interacted with by the omikyr that owns it, and that the sack breaks and spills its contents into the Feywild when the omikyr dies.


Among their own kind, they rank each other based on the beauty and number of collected objects, with the owners of the largest collections being seen as nobility, so they fight fiercely to protect their collections. They fight with ornate shortswords and with the merest touch from their hand, they can inspire awe or fear, and they shun armor, finding it heavy and restricting, preferring to rely on their own natural thick skins for protection. However, they like to wear jewelry made from natural materials such as acorns, leaves, and bark, as well as favored trinkets from its collection, usually made from metal. Many Omikyri live in towns in the Feywild. However, most of them live either between planes or solely on the Primal Plane. Some even live among humans or elves. A majority of those who live on the Primal Plane simply amass as much treasure as possible either for themselves or for a coalition of Omikyri.
