Fairies are known to be full of life and often whimsical. They are known for their long lifespan, as well as their child-like demeanor. However, this demeanor does not mean that they are of child-like in intelligence. Many fairies also tend to leave a trail of chaos in their wake; this chaos can range from small pranks to more sinister acts.

Trolls were one for the first races to walk Orn. Spawned from the leftovers of creation, their bodies reflect the highly tumultuous nature of the early days of Orn. Trolls have incredible regenerative abilities as a whole, but share a fear of the sun and light.  Troll-kind come in a selection of natural colors from stony greys and blues to vibrant greens and earthy browns. They also have an innate ability to disrupt and re-forge magic and as a result are talented enchanters and craftspeople.
