A feral elfling belongs to a group of elflings who were caught between the worlds during the Disappearance. They lived in a harsh dream-like world, fighting for their lives against the environment and demons. Unlike their cousins, the feral elflings have little problem with violence, having gone to severe lengths to survive during their Exile, as they call it. They are not adjusting well to the world since their return, and they find its inhabitants soft. They do not get along with others, though some tribes have slowly begun to accept contact from the outside.
They are the same small stature as their cousins, but they have a wild look to their eyes, a paler skin color, and often have sharpened teeth and tribal scarification.
Time in the Between
There were some Alfiren who were caught in the Eastlands during the Great War. They were pulled into the Between and like the elves, spent around seven centuries stuck there. Unlike the elves, they were trapped in the Eastlands, which were tied closely to the Navirim. Stuck there they battled against the demons for centuries and became very different from their cousins who stayed in Uteria.
While the Elflings of Uteria feasted on milk and honey from bees and cows, the feral Alfirin had only the kudza vine, which can be ground down into a bitter sugar and the meat of the demons to subsist on. Some of the tribes even viewed eating the raw meat of their enemies to give them strength.
How to play a Feral Elfling
Feral Elflings love chaos as much as their Westlands cousins, but to them it has become a full reality. The time in the Between has changed their outlook and they can not accept the reality of the “real” world.
Feral Alfiren are wild and untamed. They survived by fighting directly against the demons, and have no problem with violence. They still have a love of chaos and travel the Eastlands in hunt for the demons.
Feral Alfiren get a -1 to Cha but a +2 to Dex.
