Fey'ri were not a true elven subrace. They were to elves as tieflings were to humans and tanarukks were to orcs. The fey'ri were the result of interbreeding between sun elves and tanar'ri in an attempt to strengthen the sun elf bloodline.
Description[edit | edit source]
The fey'ri resembled elves "the way tieflings resemble humans", but generally rejected the notion of elven resemblance as offensive. Some fey'ri had barbed tails, fangs, forked tongues, or horns, or any combination. Some had multiple sets of arms and one or more sets of wings.
Some fey'ri were not visibly different to elves at all, and some were raised amongst elves, some never knowing their true nature.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Fey'ri had a talent for the use of magic, and some would practice bladesong. Almost all fey'ri had the ability to change shape, which aided in concealing themselves in society. Other abilities varied, including producing flames, draining life, or resisting spells.
Fey'ri considered their bloodline to be very important, and prided themselves on being able to trace it back to House Dlardrageth or the daemonfey. This meant that breeding typically only occurred with other fey'ri or, very rarely, elves.
The fey'ri would generally look negatively upon outsiders, but were respectful towards intelligence, strength, and flexible morals. Even once having made a "friend", a fey'ri would abandon that person immediately if the fey'ri saw that individual as more than a minor annoyance.
Combat[edit | edit source]
Society[edit | edit source]
They have an autarchic way of life, with a strong sense of community.
After the death of Sarya Dlardrageth, most fey'ri considered themselves to be without a leader. As of 1479 DR, however, Lilianviaten claimed to be an older brother of Sarya and the "Last Heir", and claimed to have escaped imprisonment, roaming freely and undiscovered for thousands of years.
Religion[edit | edit source]
Despite their elven blood, Fey'ri did not worship the good gods of the Seldarine. They neither follow the Tiefling practice of worshiping the demons. Instead, one of the older of the Floshin house has been converted to Ghaunadaur's cult for centuries, until the majority of the Fey'ri worship him. This confirm the corruption that tainted the Fey'ri's blood.
More recently some neutral Fey'ris were more receptive to Fenmarel Mestarine as the god of banished elves and parias. He is still worshiped in secret but the Fey'ris that follow him which to understand better the Faerun of today.
History[edit | edit source]
The first house was the Dlardrageth from Cormanthor which was imprisoned after being discovered by others elves. During their detention, they made an alliance with three minor houses from Siluvanede. The houses released the Dlardrageth in exchange for magical objects, and they also procreated with demons. In the end, they all got magically locked up until three members of the clan got free and destroyed the magical seal.
After that event, Sarya Dlardrageth launched the invasion of Evereska and then of Myth Drannor with thousands of fey'ri, demons, and orcs but were defeated by Seiveril Miritar leading a crusade of volunteers from Evermeet that later turned into a return.
