Physical description[]

Illuskans were tall, fair-skinned people. Most had blue or steel gray eyes. Those living on the islands in the Trackless Sea and Icewind Dale had more blond hair, and slightly less red and brown. Those in the Sword Coast North and surrounding lands had more raven black hair, from their significant Netherese heritage.


The Northlanders originated in the island of Ruathym. The island was thought of as their ancestral home, from where they spread into other islands in the Sea of Swords and into the continent following the founding of the city of Luskan.[4]
