A leShay was an immortal, albino, elf-like fey creature of extraordinary magical power.[1] Some scholars believe that the leShay were one of the creator races.[2]


LeShay were tall and thin and looked like albino elves. However, instead of the red eyes common to true albinos, leShay had deep black eyes; even the whites of their eyes were black. They had pointed ears, but they were not quite so pointed as an elf's.[1]

LeShay were immortal; they could only die if killed.[1]


LeShay had a vast array of magical powers inherent to themselves. Most notable among such powers were their ability to charm other creatures by simply looking at them and the strange power of forming weapons out of nothing by power of thought alone. These "leShay weapons" were formed from the essence of each individual leShay as if they were extensions of his or her own body. LeShay could also change form, teleport, turn invisible, and breathe underwater with their magics, among other things.[1]

The minds of leShay are particularly geared towards the learning of language; that is, all leShay are essentially polyglots. They can understand nearly any language with only moments of hearing it spoken.[1]


Despite these powers—on par with the oldest of dragons—leShay tended to avoid initiating combat. They were superb fighters, but they preferred to act on the defensive.[1]


A leShay typically is very concerned with proper behavior, manners, and mores and cares strongly about matters of respect.[1]
