Physical Description[edit]

Uroa are rotund fey creatures. They have small heads with smooth and hairless faces. Their body is covered in rich, soft fur which ranges from dark blue to deep purple shades of color. The belly of an uroa has a big patch of fur that is lighter in color. This patch of fur sometimes wraps around their entire midsection. Their faces are usually a very pale shade of their body color, and usually have a simple, childish look. The hair on their head is longer and thicker, concealing their ears. Their hands have four, short fingers, and their feet are split into only two stubby toes.


Uroa have little notable history, as they almost never left the Feywild, which they are native to. Upon the opening of the gates of the fey world to Toril, the uroa initially migrated with countless others and took up residences in lush forests of mystery. They showed great interest in humanoids, particularly that of humans. Their homes thus moved closer towards the settlements so they could observe. There soon arose rumors of child-snatchers among the trees. The uroa were known to steal children away into the woods. However, they did so only for the weak and frail ones, often spiriting them away to heal in nature. This did not stop the hunts for the uroa however, who were soon lumped with other child-snatchers like the evil forest spirits who replaced children in the crib with changelings. The uroa thus fled and returned to the Feywild, but they still can never forget a child in need. Thus, they make regular trips to settlements to take children away before eventually returning them back in a healthier state.


Uroa are spread out across the Feywild within forests. They live often among lush branches, springs, or nests and dried hollows. Their communities have no specific hierarchy. They usually live in groups of two to five, although some live alone. They have no binding laws or edicts, instead writing some simple rules to follow within groups. These rules differ extremely from group to group, but an uroa who breaks one of these rules is generally exiled as punishment. They would usually seek a different one, or to create their own. Others live alone for the rest of their lives. Uroa live closely with fey mice, and other fey creatures, and they have very amicable relationships. Exiled, lonesome uroa usually find a companion with another of these races.


Uroa are best characterized as gentle giants. They are rather big, but one should never judge them for their size. Their bodies fluffiness is reflected by their caring nature for other races, particularly those who are smaller than themselves. They can be timid when confronted and a bit easy to startle, showing their gentle nature. Their wanton caring is depicted through their acts of child snatching. While they certainly mean well and care, they do not always take the most rational or best course of action, which can lead to problems. They are also soft-spoken and so often cannot adequately defend their own positions or explain themselves.
