Avariel

Within Faerun exists a race of winged elves, they were one of the first elven races to migrate to Faerun. Conflict with dragons almost wiped them out, making them a rare sight to behold. Most consider them myths or legends, as they could barely be found until recently. Scattered throughout Toril, most are found in the Aerie of the Snow Eagles atop Mount Sundabar.

 Avariel have two sides to their culture: War and Peace. One being honor-bound warriors sworn to fight for their protection. While the other side is devout priests and scholars who are sworn to diplomacy and healing. Avariel are lithe and light, their smaller thinner builds help them take flight and soar in the skies, fighting foes like dragons. Most Avariel honor Aerdrie Faenya and are free spirits.

Their complexion is pale, ivory, and light tan, and their hair ranges from whiteish blonde to darkest black. They do not have any unusual colors such as purples, greens, etc. Their eyes are green, blue, golden, brown, and silver. Their wings are typically black, brown, white, or speckled, matching in color to their hair.

Darkvision

You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions, negating the Perception and to-hit penalties present at nighttime and in the dark areas of the world.

Fey Ancestry

You are immune to magical sleep effects.

Keen Senses

Elves are highly attuned to their surroundings. You have proficiency in Perception.


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.
 

Wings

Because of your wings, your movement counts as flying type all the time. You cannot take fall damage unless you are incapacitated when falling. Broad and feathered, they can span up to 10 feet when fully extended. They are usually white, but could be black, brown or speckled.
