Daywraith

Daywraith are Fae who live in meadows and fields. They are strongest when the sun is highest and prefer light and warmth. When threatened, they can produce an intense heat wave that can dehydrate enemies. They were born from the union of a Fae and a devil, which causes their infernal appearance.

Traits

Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 2, and your Charisma score increases by 1.

Age. Daywraith become adults in their late teens. They can live to be 200 years old.

Alignment. Capricious and self-centered, daywraith tend to be chaotic. An infernal taint leads many daywraith away from good and toward evil. Most daywraith are chaotic neutral.

Rarity. Legendary.

Size. Daywraith are 6 to 7 feet tall, and their horns can make them top 8 feet. However, they are quite thin, weighing only 150 to 200 pounds. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Heritage (Fiend, Fey, Tiefling). You are humanoid, but you are considered to be a fiend or fey whenever it is detrimental for you. In addition, you meet the tiefling prerequisite for racial feats.

Midday Magic. You know the light and sacred flame cantrips. Once you reach 3rd level, you can cast burning hands as a 1st-level spell once per day, except the spell deals radiant damage for you. Once you reach 5th level, you can cast heat metal as a 2nd-level spell once per day. Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells, and you need no material components for them.

Meadow Mask. You can attempt to hide even when you are only lightly obscured by plants or other natural terrain.

Sunlight Affinity. If you finish a short rest in natural sunlight or the area of a daylight spell, you regain 1 additional hit point for each Hit Die you spend. Conversely, if you finish a short rest in an area that lacks natural sunlight or is not in the area of a daylight spell, you regain 1 fewer hit point for each Hit Die you spend.

Languages. You speak, read, and write Common and Sylvan. Some daywraith learn Infernal instead of or in addition to Sylvan.
