“Why do humans always think I speak in goofy broken Common? That is somewhat racist.”
– “Fishbreath”, A Seafaring Fey Shiba Bard
Small but ever curious
Fey dogs are an energetic race of canine-like beings. Typically, the breeds reflect smaller dog breeds rather than large, as they better fit the whimsical nature of faerie. Oddly enough, their name is a misnomer. While they live in the realms of faerie, they aren’t true fae, but rather one of many kinds of animals uplifted by fae magic.
Few breeds are the adventurous sort, save for the rare few, as most tend to stay within their realms. This is either out of a fearful need for protection or phobia of the outside world.
Those who wander away from their home realms do so to learn about the many worlds around them. To these lone strangers, the world is full of new sights, sounds, and even smells! For fey dogs, this new life is one full of excitement wherever they go.
At Home Anywhere
Despite their origins in the realms of Faerie, adventurous fey dogs are comfortable almost everywhere. Leaving behind their prejudice and fear, they adapt to new homes much like their non-sentient ancestors. And just like their ancestors, they are quick to bond to other races that become friendly with them. While fey dogs aren’t always willing to obey and listen, they prove to be very faithful companions in the long run.
EDIT: Even though the base idea wasn’t mine, I’m in the midst of reorganizing due to people copying the work I have done. I might rework the base stats of this into another work or project though. If it becomes a product, the base stats provided here might be removed and a link put up in their place. Until then, enjoy this living draft.
