  • Clothing Banishment. If a Humanoid offers a fenodyree a gift of clothing, it must succeed on a DC 15 Charisma saving throw or be instantly banished to the Otherworld.
  • Fey Ancestry. The fenodyree has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put the fenodyree to sleep.
  • Innate Spellcasting. The fenodyree’s innate spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 13). The fenodyree can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:


  • Scythe. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (2d4 + 4) slashing damage. Entangling Plants (Recharge 5 6). Grasping roots and vines sprout in a 15-foot radius centered on the blight, withering away after 1 minute. For the duration, that area is difficult terrain for nonplant creatures. In addition, each creature of the fenodyree’s choice in that area when the plants appear must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or become restrained. A creature can use its action to make a DC 12 Strength check, freeing itself or another entangled creature within reach on a success.
  • Time Lapse (Recharges after a Short or Long Rest). The fenodyree accelerates the passage of time around itself, enabling it to accomplish up to 1 hour of work in a matter of seconds. This work can’t affect any creature other than the fenodyree, or any object being worn or carried by another creature, and the activity must take place within a 10-foot cube.


  • Helpful. The fenodyree can take the Help action as a bonus action, and the creature who receives the help gains a 1d6 bonus to the d20 roll. If that roll is an attack roll, the creature can forgo adding the bonus to it, and then if the attack hits, the creature can add the bonus to the attack’s damage roll against one target.


The fenodyree is a fey creature just two feet tall with a shaggy mane covering its body. It has fiery eyes that radiate warmth. The fenodyree typically appears in a naked state, wearing no clothing, and is often seen carrying out tasks with remarkable strength and agility.

Fenodyrees are beautiful fey turned into their hairy form as a result of some transgression against fey nobility. They see their current forms as punishment that must be worked over decades or even centuries before they can return to their true forms. The fenodyree is known for helping out with heavy tasks on farms in return for a small offering of grain and a bowl of cream. It is a friendly and generally helpful creature, often performing arduous chores and lending a hand to those in need.

Fenodyrees can be found in rural areas, particularly in close proximity to farms and human dwellings. They are particularly fond of elder trees and can sometimes be seen living among the branches of these trees.

Fenodyrees are generally benign beings, assisting farmers and individuals with various tasks on their farms. They are renowned for their incredible strength and speed when completing chores like transporting heavy stones, cutting meadow grass, herding animals during storms, and more.

To summon a fenodyree, humans must follow the correct protocol by taking off their headgear and saying the proper words and charms. If done correctly, the fenodyree may appear to help with various tasks. However, if vexed or offered clothing as a gift, the fenodyree can become mischievous and might steal away a farm’s entire livestock or disappear into the woods, mourning the loss of its Fairy Bower.

Despite their abilities, fenodyrees are gentle creatures and can be easily appeased through acts of kindness and gratitude, such as leaving a small offering of food in exchange for their help.
