Ter Falcana are descendants of a great air elemental that appeared on the prime material plane and mated with an avian. They have a great hatred for dragons and will warn towns and good tribes of imminent attack. They speak avian, but understand common. Ter Falcanna can be psionically or magically contacted and beseeched to act as a companion for up to two weeks. They serve as an airborne set of eyes, a guide, or simply a good-aligned creature willing to share their knowledge of geography and any other matters that they have observed.

They inhabit cloud isles or remote mountain peaks amidst the strongest known winds. These ladies of the air rarely engage in combat, as their flight enables them to flee before virtually every confrontation.

When forced to engage in combat, they prefer to dive at their foes, tearing them apart with their diamond tipped claws. Once they inflict the wounds, they depart quickly, soaring into the clouds for cover.

Fae-Nom: Pathfinder Faerie Playable Character Race

This is the NPC faerie race that I use in my games. They usually reside in rural environments and while never loud or dangerous, they are always ready to lend a hand. 


Fae-Nom (Fae-Na is the singular) appear as shorter than average humans, though not as cherubic as Halflings or as quick as Elves. Most reside in rural areas and having atypical clothing of farmers, fishers or work-hands. They use simple tools that can also be used as weapons. Their simplistic appearance disguises their nature: fae beings with a dual bond to both the settlements and the Fae Wild-Lands.

Their existence in farming towns is known but little understood. They have the same desires as many civilized races to work, earn coin and enjoy the finer things in life – thus they have a pull to live in towns to earn these things. However, they can never truly abandon their connection to the Wild-Lands. Also, since this is the fey Homeland, they have a strong responsibility to keep it safe and free from external threats (orcs, undead, etc)

While many Fae-Nom live a blended lifestyle, a rare few, due to demand gain in experience, and turn literally into a more typical representation of faeries. They shrink in size, gain wings and gain more magical abilities, especially their dreaded fae strike.

Personality: They are at heart rural simple folk, with a deep connection both to nature, the wild and the benefits of society. When threats appear, they are driven to protect both of their homes regardless of the cost. They try to avoid conflicts with allies, both within and outside of civilization.

Physical Description: Fae-Nom appear as five feet tall, humans with shaggy brown hair and farm clothing. They carry simple farm or fishing lifestyle weapons. Those who gain levels, become more typical of the fairies, with paler skin, tipped ears and eventually gossamer wings. They use very light weapons when needed.

Relations: Fae-Nom families usually reside in farms or rural areas, and few know of them even their friends. As they grow and gain in abilities, their adventures often help them build strong connections with halflings, elves, and dwarves as they all have a strong belief in keeping the home and nature safe. Humans rarely know the Fae-Nom are in their presence.

Alignment: They tend towards both goodness and neutrality. These peaceful folk are rarely officially organized in groups, most times individuals step forward to take heroic acts.

Lands: They have no territory of their own. They reside in larger human or elf communities.

Religion: Their faith is most often druidic, neutral or good aligned spirits that assist in agriculture, communities or fertility. They have many more druids than clerics.

Language: Druid, Halfling, Elf & the common tongue.

Adventurers: Technically, every Fae-Na is tasked to help keep the Wildlands free from corruption, thus, they help in patrols or called into action during times of peril. A hardy few, whether lucky or truly courageous, are defined by their bravery, and experience moments that enable them to grow into the wondrous examples of True Fae. These individuals travel to make allies, find magic or just to escape the monotony of their mundane farming existence.

Favored Class: Ranger, Druid or Rogue.
