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.[2]

DescriptionEdit

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.[5]

Some fey'ri were not visibly different to elves at all, and some were raised amongst elves, some never knowing their true nature.[5]

AbilitiesEdit

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.[6]

SocietyEdit

Fey'riHouseDlardrageth

The fey'ri of House Dlardrageth ambush some orcs.

Most fey'ri became sorcerers, rogues, or fighters.[2] Fey'ri sought to reestablish the old elven realms of Cormanthor with themselves at their head.[2]

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.[7]

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.[8]

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.[7]

Notable Fey'riEdit

HistoryEdit

The fey'ri fought during the Crown Wars.[6]
