Archfey were fey beings who gained nearly god-like powers and established a position of preeminence among fey-kind. Each archfey had a unique appearance and set of abilities, most controlled a portion of the Feywild and had self-proclaimed titles.[1][2]

Some of them were powerful fey of many races, others were the awakened spirits of natural places such as forests or rivers, others the sentient incarnations of different types of animals, and others were noble eladrin so old and powerful they transcended the bounds of mortality.[1]

Some archfey were regarded as deities and granted divine abilities to their worshipers.[3] Archfey could be contacted by a willing warlock to form a fey pact.[4][5]

Notable Archfey

Additionally, the deities Auril (under the name of Aurilandür),[3] Relkath,[3] Sarula Iliene,[3] and Lurue[3] had all been mistakenly identified as archfey in the past.
