Sylphs

Basic Information

Anatomy & Morphology

Shape changers. Some choose a human-like physical form, others choose animal, others still choose inanimate objects or landforms. When their physical form dies, the rest of their spiritual energy is recycled into the havidir.

Are made, rather than born, and pop up as full grown, intelligent beings regardless of their physical form. Cannot reproduce with other sylphs, but can reproduce with humans by mimicking their reproductive system.
