  • Fey Ancestry. The sable elf has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put them to sleep.



  • Witch Eye. The sable elf can cast detect magic without expending a spell slot.


A bald, silver-skinned elfin woman dressed in decorative robes made of layers of black, grey, and white gauze strikes an imposing figure before you. The top portion of her face is covered by a midnight-blue and silver mask that extends upward into an elaborate, feathered headdress. As her hands twist in an arcane gesture, you note the eyes tattooed upon her palms.

Sable elves who are discontent to wander in disgrace often seek to join the cult of Hecate, the goddess who presides over witchcraft.

Arcane Advisors. Hecate only grants the powers of hierophant to the most cunning, powerful, and charismatic of her worshippers. This combination of requirements makes a hierophant an attractive advisor and religious guide to magically inclined societies. Sable elf hierophants are often seen among the royal courts of the shadow fey or in other elite social circles.

Witch Queen. Hecate is regarded as one of the oldest of the gods, and her worship dates back before the elves settled the mortal world. While her popularity has waxed and waned over the epochs, small covens of practitioners who praise her name have consistently existed across all geographic regions and cultures.
