Avariels are a race of winged Elves who live in open areas and are most
happy when flying. They love the air so much that they cannot stand being
indoors when it is not absolutely necessary. The avariel are very rare,
however, since they have been nearly hunted to extinction by dragons, who
developed a taste for the flying creatures.
Traits and Abilities:
Being of Elven descent, they are very similar in form, excluding the wings.
They are not particularly strong creatures, and have even less stamina than
an Elf, but they have become more dextrous. They are excellent conjurers,
highwaymen, or druids. They are terrible fighters due to their lack of arm
strength. Their strong minds make them resistant to charm spells, but their
frail wings are quite vulnerable to fire.
It is known that the Avariels were descended from Elves, but it is a
complete mystery as to how it happened. It is assumed that it was the work
of some god or goddess, but that can not currently be verified. What is
known about the Avariels is that there numbers used to range in the hundreds
of thousands, until the dragons found their home land and started wiping them
out. The few that remained went into hiding underground, much to their
dismay. Eventually they ventured back out and left those lands forever.
