Houri

Note: Female only

Nymphs are immortal creatures of great beauty and fine bearing. They rarely bare children, and when they do is nearly always with a fey mate. Such children are always female and always nymphs. Outside of fey races only elves are able to sire a nymph's child while elf-blooded nymph children are always female they are not true nymphs themselves. These Houri, also known as muses, Artemisians and Ninevah, are fetching creatures of elven wit and fey grace.

Physical Description: Houri are among the most beautiful of all mortal races. They are universally fair, and their body types tend to range from lithe and petite to slender with much to show in the bosom area. They have flawlessly smooth skin, luxuriant hair, beautiful eyes, perfect features and delicate pointed ears. A Houri may have any skin coloration depending on the appearance of her parents. Pale and creamy skin with blonde hair, and green eyes are most common, but Houri have been born with brown, black or well-tanned skin and a vast array of hair and eye color.

Houri never show signs of age when they do mature. Once they reach their middle age, they take on an ageless beauty, making it impossible to determine the relative age of Houri who are past their youth. Even undead Houri do not lose their beauty for their bodies never suffer from the ravages of vermin or decomposition.

Society: Houri rarely stay with their mothers, instead most end up joining some mortal community where they gain acceptance and often becoming heroes, wives, and matriarchs.

Relations: *Houri get along with most any race or class, though they are sometimes hounded by young bards wishing to compose epics to their beauty. Though Houri appreciate the dedication to the defense of the good and the innocent, some paladins are too strict and conservative for Houri to feel comfortable around them.

Alignment and Religion: Most Houri are neutral good, valuing kindness, justice, fair play and honesty but without being convinced that there is only one true path for achieving and protecting these things. Evil Houri are usually the result of a disillusioning trauma knowing that they can get almost anything they want by most men they tend to become selfish and fall to darker paths.
Houri usually worship Eyvra however there are a few that worship Samaria and Yadira

Adventurers: Houri usually go on adventuring to protect and carry out the cause of good however some do it for selfish needs such as money. Most houri become spellcasters. A Houri is perfectly capable of physical violence, however and more than one foe has been taken aback by the power of Houri fighters.
