Nymphs were fey that typically resembled Tel-quessir women, not just physically beautiful, but literally blindingly so. They usually dwelt in forests, streams, waterfalls, or coves. They were the guardians and protectors of these and the portals to the faerie realm. It was said that their beauty could lead anyone who gazed upon them to either blindness, madness, or even death. However, they could suppress this ability if they wished. They absolutely hated anything that was either evil or ugly.[citation needed]

Their queen was more powerful than their king. They had the ability to wield the power of nature. They celebrated many different festivals. They tended to live near hollow hills. They were immortal.[citation needed]

Nymphs were sometimes sent as agents of the elven gods Corellon Larethian or Erevan Ilesere.[2]

AppearanceEdit

They were very similar to wood elves in most cases; for instance, they had markedly pointed ears. Nymphs were always female, possessing incredible beauty that was dangerous to behold. As such, they were the frequent target of satyrs and lecherous human males.[citation needed]
