Dream Thieves – Psychic-Vampire Unseelie Fey for D&D 5th Edition

“Let me just reach into your mind…”

Deep within the realms of the fae lie particularly insidious spirits that thrive off the minds and life forces of material plane creatures.  These parasites drain both energy and sanity from their hosts, rendering them into a vegetative state or possibly empty husks.  Referred to as psychic vampires by some, this category isn’t far from the truth.  They have the ability to mentally drain targets who are very much awake, making them a threat in active combat too.  Few have seen to recount about their fateful incursions.  Most remark that these winged creatures have muted and soulless features.  In a sense, they fit the mold of the classic vampire in many ways, but with a more faerie-driven motif as well.

Luckily, these creatures are quite cowardly.  If put in a situation beyond their control, they will do all in their path to escape and search for a much weaker target to feast from.  Their preferred prey is helpless creatures locked into sleep.  This is where their name comes from, despite them being indifferent towards targeting unconscious or generally helpless creatures.
