Astral Elf

Long ago, groups of elves ventured from the Feywild to the Astral Plane to be closer to their gods. Life in the Silver Void has imbued their souls with a spark of divine light. That light manifests as a starry gleam in an astral elf's eyes.

Because nothing ages on the Astral Plane, astral elves who inhabit that plane can be very old, and their longevity gives them an unusual perspective on the passage of time. Some are prone to melancholy, while others might display an absence of feeling. Many look for creative ways to occupy themselves. Whether they choose to live in quiet contemplation or strike out to explore the reaches of the multiverse, astral elves tend to see things through the lens of time as having little or no meaning to them. Astral elves who don't dwell in the Astral Plane can live to be more than 750 years old.

Keen Senses

Starlight Step

As a bonus action, you can magically teleport up to 3 tiles to an unoccupied space you can see. You can use this trait once per long rest.

Trance

Elves don’t need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that non-elves do from 8 hours of sleep (a long rest).

Trancing is an intrinsic part of the elven experience, for elves peer back into their past memories to dissect them and learn from them. These memories extend back a century, and it is for this reason why elves are not considered adults until they've aged 100 years, for their trance will include memories of their past elven life within that span.
