About

The changeling can look like any humanoid and lives amongst them. The offspring of doppelgangers and humans, its true form can come as a shock to some. Even in Feyland their pale bodies and large eyes are noticeable. They are extremely stealthy and are used as spies by both of the fey courts.

Diplomatic Doppelganger. Changelings are patient and calm and make very good diplomats.

Cautious Creature. These creatures are rather sensitive and take their time getting to know others and trying new activities. However, changelings often wander far from their homes as they are curious about other races.

Prolific Performers. A large number of changelings end up as entertainers. Their many gifts lend themselves to the performing arts.
