The avariel are the most reclusive and least numerous of the elven subraces on Faerun. This elusiveness, along with their natural beauty, has instilled within them condescension and pity for their land-bound kin. They are, by nature, free spirits who possess and irrepressible zest for life. The most striking feature of the avariels is their soft, striking wings. Their skin is pale, often porcelain white, with tinges of blue of faint silver. They generally have silver-white or black hair, and are considered the most beautiful of the elven races.
