Pixie

You often see things others miss. You notice the person frowning in the back, hear the words left unsaid, or even read the faulty logic of an argument. When this happens, rather than doing nothing — you act. It isn’t always appreciated by others and it’s exceedingly hard for you to hold back or filter yourself. You believe in utter, brutal honesty, and hope the people around you do as well. When you find out they don’t it’s often a startling let down.

People think you cause mischief and sow chaos — and they aren’t half wrong. What the big folk don’t understand is the motivation behind your actions. They think, small person, small motivation, merely acting on a lark, but they couldn’t be more wrong. This isn’t a misapprehension you’re going to correct them of though; it’s always to your advantage when people underestimate how committed you can be. Creatures larger than you often give you the wary respect afforded any pixie, but interactions with other pixies is more difficult. Pixie communication is a complex form of verbal and non-verbal signals. More can be said in one movement than in fifty words, and sometimes it’s impossible to get pixies to shut up. You feel you’ll spend your entire life trying to perfect blending in with them.

Traits

  • Ability Score Increase. Increase your Dexterity score by 2, and your Intelligence score by 1.
  • Age. Pixies mature quickly, reaching adulthood within a year of hatching from their egg. While effectively immortal (though not indestructible) within the Enchanted Forest, pixies live to about a century outside it.
  • Size. Pixies stand roughly six to eight inches tall. Your size is Tiny.
  • Speed. Your base walking speed is 5 feet. Your base flying speed is 30 feet.
  • Fey Ancestry. You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put you to sleep.
  • Geas. When you make a promise with someone, you may both agree to turn it into a supernaturally binding pact. If you or the other person breaks their word, the other knows. Many pixies use this ability to construct convoluted agreements, which most always result in someone else breaking their promise and owing the pixie a boon.
  • Pixie Magik. You know the minor illusion cantrip. When you reach 3rd level, you can cast faerie fire once per day. When you reach the 5th level, you can cast the major image spell once per day. Intelligence is your spellcasting ability for these spells.
  • Pixie Language. In addition to whatever languages you speak and read, you can also speak and smell Pixie — pixies have no written language and communicate using a complex combination of vocalizations mixing with an olfactory understanding of others to convey meaning behind what is said.
  • Small and Mighty. You can move through the space of any creature. Opportunity attacks made against you by a creature that is a size larger than yours are made with disadvantage.
  • Wings. You have wings and can fly.
