Avariel Background (From Races of Faerun):The Avariel, or winged elves, are without doubt the most reclusive and least numerous of the elven subraces on Faerun. Many scholars have long dismissed them as creatures of myth. In truth, small numbers of avariels still dwell on Faerun, concealed in hidden enclaves and remote regions.

The most striking features of the avariels is their soft, feathered wings. They have wing spans of anywhere between twelve and sixteen feet and are usually white, but also may be grey, black, brown or speckled. Avariels take great pride in their wings and spend long hours grooming them. Their skin is pale, often porcelain white, with tinges of blue or faint silver. They have silver-white or black hair, with other shades being rare but not unheard of. The avariels' eyes are rather large and more expressive than those of other elves, and they tend to be brilliant shades of blue or green. A few avariel have scintillating violet eyes as pure as amethysts. Avariels stand 5'9" tall on average, with thin, graceful limbs and angular facial features. They are the most beautiful and striking of the elven races, although too often this beauty is marred by haughtiness and condescension towards their landbound kin, who they tend to pity.

Avariles are even more delicate than other elves, and their movements are quick, calculated, and graceful. They prefer to wear loose fitting, diaphanous clothing that catches the wind in flight and ripples and weaves in the air. Armour is almost never worn, because it tends to weigh the avariles down and hinder their graceful motion. Avariles cannot fly while wearing heavy armour.

Background: Born and raised at the Aerie of the Snow Eagles, the sacred glass citadel of the avariels, she was educated and taught among other avariels. Having been taught everything by her father and mother, how to use a bow, flying and the like, she has joined the avariel as an agile, quick-thinking and intelligent scout. Her goals, like many other avariels, is to explore different regions of the world, from the sky and ground below, and to report findings so other may gain knowledge from it.

Although trained in a military-like fashion, she has inherited traits most avariel have: bardic powers and song; having a great passion for music and art, and great understanding in the art of arcane magics. However, although prepared for combat, she rarely resorts to it, there being no need if she can simply fly above the enemy. However, she'd use it to her advantage if any landbound creatures were stupid enough to attack a creature that could kill them from the sky.

She has come to these new lands, from her secure homeland, to search the area, to gain knowledge and possibly even interacting with the other races - gaining trust. She has been sent for diplomacy and scouting reasons, but everyone knows, it can't be as simple as that. Having all the knowledge she could possibly have on the land - that being extremely little, she has begun the search for power, knowledge, and allies.

Unfortunately, the world had other plans - and the one thing she didn't expect to come across as she flew for many, many miles to seek the land, greeted her in hordes of many - zombies. Keeping above ground height, she looks on in horror, shock, and great curiousity. Although returning home to a seemingly pointless journey looked to be the best option, she remained to stay around - and kept muttering to herself, that there was something deeply wrong, and more of the newly founded lands to see. In the quest for knowledge for the avariels back home, she has decided to look around the lands, and gain what knowledge she can. Well, without the zombies getting to her first...

I've some mild concerns, but I suppose, given that they're easily handled, I needn't raise them.

I'll ask around, get some views, and then get back to you.
