Avariels are without a doubt the most reclusive and least numerous of the elven subraces, having been driven to near-extinction on a number of Primes. Due to this, most Avariels encountered in Sigil hail from Arvandor, although the occasional Prime native can be encountered.
The most striking feature of the Avariels is their soft, feathered wings. Avariels take great pride in their wings and spend long hours grooming them. Their skin is pale, often porcelain white, with tinges of blue or faint silver. They have silver-white or black hair with other shades being rare but not unheard of. The Avariels’ eyes are large and more impressive than those of other elves, and they tend to be brilliant shades of blue or green. They are the most beautiful and striking of the elven races, although too often this beauty is marred by haughtiness and condescension toward their land-bound kin, who they often pity.
