Fey'ri, or demonfey, 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]

EcologyEdit

Physical characteristicsEdit

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

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 means that breeding typically only occurred with other fey'ri, or, exceptionally, 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 it helped 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 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]

During the Hundred Years of Chaos the fey'ri were nearly hunted down to the last of their number, with House Dlardrageth wiped out completely. However, a few from lesser houses and communities remained, though well-hidden and nearly unheard of.[9] Many of the survivors returned to their former strongholds around the southern High Forest, including a base built by Sarya Dlardrageth beneath Lothen of the Silver Spires.[10]
