Restricted Class

Source: Mordenkainens Tome of Foes (5e-wiz-mtf-61), not using the Eladrin from Dungeon Masters Guide (5e-wiz-dmg)

Also known as Eladrin or Sylvan Elf.

All elves have a kinship with the dragons. For as long as can be remembered, there have been no wars between the elves and the dragons. Only the Eladrin and the scholars know why, due to a shared heritage. In their folk tales elves strove to be more than they were, creating the eladrin and through them the dragons. Though it is also said that either the eladrin or the dragons were offshoots of their magical advancements. Eladrin worship the elven god of trickery and mischief. Due to their perceived closer ties to the feywild, many eladrin also have those traits.
