The eladrin are a type of extraplanar creature that resembles an elf.[3] They are found on the plane of Thelanis.[1][2]

History[]

Eladrin and elves may share a common ancestry.[2]

At one time the eladrin clashed with the fomorians in Thelanis.[6]

Description[]

Eladrin originate in Thelanis, where the power of story holds sway. Individual eladrin have appearances reflective of the story of their feyspire and the archfey that dominate it.[7]

Some eladrin warriors wear wooden masks.[7][8]

Abilities[]

Eladrin have the ability to teleport short distances by briefly passing through another plane.[5]

Some eladrin are adept shapechangers and can assume abstract forms such as a ball of light or a whirlwind.[3]

Society[]

Eladrin dwell in the feyspires of Thelanis, where they are divided between the various courts overseen by the archfey of the Faerie Court.[2]

Specific kinds of eladrin are known by titles including bralani, coure, and ghaele.[3][5][9] These noble eladrin attain these ranks mostly on their own merit, and stand above their peers in individual power.[5][9]

Notable Eladrin[]

  • Luca Syara, the playwright of the Diamond Theater in Lower Menthis Plateau of Sharn. She is secretly a ghaele eladrin that has settled in Sharn and masquerades as a human. She originally left Thelanis to fight in the Last War on behalf of Cyre and a righteous cause. But Luca grew so disaffected by the war that she vowed to never return to her home or do battle ever again.[10] Her plays deal with heavy themes from the Last War.[10][11]
  • Shan Lian Doresh, the Lord of the Fading Dream, is a former ghaele eladrin that was banished to Dal Quor after an ancient war with the giants of the Cul'sir Empire of Xen'drik. He is the lord of Taer Lian Doresh, the Fortress of Fading Dreams.[8][12]
  • Shan Syraen, the Lord of Winter, a ghaele eladrin embodying the power of winter. He is lord of Taer Syraen, the Winter Citadel, a feyspire that stands in the Karrnwood of Karrnath. He rules a large force of mainly eladrin, with some gnome and other kinds of fey servants as well.[7][13]

Background[]

In 3.5 edition, eladrin were powerful outsiders embodying pure chaotic good, but in 4th edition eladrin were changed to fey-like elves hailing from the Feywild.[5] In the Eberron setting, they remained the native inhabitants of Thelanis, the Faerie Court, but were changed to reside within seven feyspires that alternate between Thelanis and Eberron.[2] Bralani, coure, and ghaeles, once specific types of eladrin, became specific titles for an eladrin-like archfey.[3][5][9]

Notes[]

  1. In the Eberron Campaign Guide, the eladrin change from being residents of Thelanis to being located in the Feyspires that traveled between Eberron and the Faerie Court until they were bound to the Material Plane after the Day of Mourning.
  2. In 3.5e the eladrin can communicate with any creature that has a language using its Tongues special ability
