Nelfalem tend to be distant minded people, whether they are the general in a king's army, or a simple farmer, most folk, highborn and low, look to Nelfalem as curiosities and bewilderment, by virtue of their very birth. Many do not let the distrust or admiration go to their heads, and go on to be well-rounded individuals.

Physical Description[edit]

All Nelfalem look like humans, and are just as varied in appearance, yet are almost as blessed as any Angel with Dynamic Personality or as cursed as an Demon with a natural Eerie Presence. Don't be fooled if you come across one that looks young. That Nelfalem boy you saw once, may very well have been several decades older than you. When a Nelfalem turns thirteen, they stop aging until they are around 145 years old, at which point they (almost overnight) look to be in their early 20's. They retain this appearance throughout their long lives, never physically aging, even in old age. Unlike other Half-Celestial's, they do not possess wings, and cannot fly.


Nelfalem get along well with most other races.




Some Nelfalem live in towns, like most people, they typically do outlive their mortal parent.


Nephalem can worship any deity of any alignment.


Nelfalem speak Common, Celestial, Infernal, Draconic, and may choose one other. Can learn all languages, including secret languages. This is an inheritance of theirs, from their Angel/ Demon parents, who posses the ability to speak in tongues.


Nelfalem receive their true names from their angel or demon parent. This name is sacred to them, and should only be known to those who the Nelfalem deems trustworthy. Otherwise a Nelfalem can use whatever name they choose.
