They couldn't protect all of us, I'm sorry. It was me, I killed my father

Physical Description[edit]

Xelph's are mostly humanoid, they are tiny, often barely reaching 3 feet. They have small, tyrannosaurus-like arms, underneath their real ones, which it cannot control, save for using a special cookie. Their eyes are entirely pink, and their rough skin is also pink, but slightly paler. Inside it's mouth, small teeth, stand like small jagged rocks, their nose is a barely visible point on their face. Long, pointy, ears adorn each side of their head, they can have hair, but they are more often then not completely bald. Their legs are very long and skinny, ending with small feet that also possess small toes. Their diet consits almost entirely of goblin, gnome, human and dragonborne feces and, as such, they emit a very foul aroma.


The Xelph's are an old race, they seem to pretty much entirely worship Clerics and will follow almost every command they give. They've been around for a long time, but only have a short lifespan, the Clerics are why they're still alive, which is why they worship them so strongly. They are hated widely across a lot of different races, as they have had a long history of eating other people's gardening essentials, mostly manure. Often having a knack for getting them and the rest of the group in trouble, they try to stay loyal, but ultimately fail their task.


As they aren't really liked throughout different races, they don't communicate with others. Through time, they used the experience in talking only to each other and eventually began to generate their own language. They tend to be mightily shy when first meeting someone, but also lighten up and start trusting the group later down the line. They lived on a small island called Braischia, lived, until it was taken over by gnomes, they now reside in the outer planes of Ayvantigah.
