Bralani Wintersoul

"I am the winter storm, the screaming blizzard, and the blinding snow."

Prerequisite: Eladrin

Nobility to the eladrin people is more than status—it is an investiture of power granted by the archfey in exchange for binding oaths and devotion. The eladrin refer to their nobles by many titles, and one traveling in their circles is bound to encounter coure, novier, firre, and others. Each title reflects a particular pact and the magical power gained as a result. The bralani are eladrin nobles who bind themselves to those archfey associated with nature, the seasons, and storms. The power they wield allows them to harness elements and make them their own.

You are a noble eladrin, having earned your greater standing through a pact made with the Winter Court. While the Winter Court expects you to serve it, the archfey rarely call in their debts. Thus you are free to pursue your own agenda as long as it is not at odds with your patron. You can harness winter’s power, weaving its wild magical energy into devastating attacks. Your connection to winter triggers other changes. Your skin becomes cold to the touch, your features assume a blue hue, and the air around you holds winter’s chill.
