Fey-Touched

The fey are known for their curiosity (some would say obsession) with Humans, and sometimes a fey falls in love with these creatures. The end result of these relationships is known as a fey-touched.

Physical Description:
Fey-touched are a wide group of beings. Some are wispy and beautiful while others are ugly and brutish. Some resemble elves, with pointed ears and almond shaped eyes. Others look more like trolls with warty skin and dis-proportioned limbs. As there are many types of fey out there hiding in this world there are that many of the fey touched. While not all fey are beautiful and alluring. There are some that are equally terrifying with a grace and presence that can rival the most beautiful of the fey. Regardless, all fey-touched have at least one feature or one characteristic that is out of the norm. They often have vibrantly colored hair or eyes to name a few.

Society:

Fey-touched have no cohesive culture, and either become isolated loners or they immerse themselves in a cosmopolitan society, sampling everything it has to offer. They are also drawn to the same settings that other fey call home. Depending on who they come from, they can take on the habits of their forbearers. As some fey can be happy in a home tending to families, others prefer the open air or the open sea. If they choose to immerse in the society around them, they tend to blend in or stand out proudly. Just as fey are curious about mortals and man, the fey-touched hold the same curiosity to life and those they meet.

Relations:
Most fey react favorably to fey-touched and consider them distant cousins. Sometimes the more beautiful fey-touched tend to get along with most races, but tend to be distrustful of Half Orcs, Rai, Half Ogres and Asterion.

Alignment and Religion:

Just like true Fey, good aligned, with a strong predilection towards chaos over law. Their impulsive, whimsical, and at times, frustratingly mercurial attitude towards the world can rub others the wrong way, as can their cultural fascination with jokes and pranks. At their worst, however, they are mischievous rather than malicious. They adore humor, beauty, creation, and magic, so they venerate gods who value these same things. Unlike many half-breed races, however, they rarely worship humanoid gods. They appreciate those divinities with shared values, such as gods of dreams, love, magic, and trickery, but almost uniformly, Fey-touched worship their own pantheon of gods, collectively known as the Ancients; though, a great deal of them worship Yadira.

Adventurers:

Fey-touched are more often than not seen as annoying, oddly-colored pests and never fully fit into most humanoid cultures. Regardless, they are utterly fascinated by them. They are often stricken by wanderlust and a desire to experience all that is new and shiny in the world, many Fey-touched take up adventuring.

Given their natural abilities, Fey-touched most often become bards, rogues, and sorcerers, but are also frequently bookish wizards or combinations of these classes. Those living in close proximity to fey dabble in druidic magic more than their natural abilities might suggest. Beyond the more magical or stealthy classes, their diminutive nature and their relatively fragile bodies limit their exposure to martial classes. Fey-touched rarely take up arms, but the rare exception does exist. Against all odds of a Fey touched abandoning the more chaotic streaks of their kind and becoming a paladin, a rare few devote themselves to a lawful deity and take up the paladin's oath.
