Nymphs are also known in the Realms by various other names, such as the tree folk, glades, and slaavs (the latter is considered derogatory and impolite). Nymphs and elves have similar features, body shape and in general, are difficult to differentiate. This often leads most creatures to confuse the two races. However, Nymphs typically have fuller figures and less muscle mass.
The Nymph is one of the Sylvan, a group of humanoid races created to protect areas of the Material world. They were originally created by the Goddess Resive to lend aid to animals and ensure the survival of certain plants. The race has many oddities; chief among them is that the Nymph race is 100% female. Any coupling between Nymphs and any other humanoid, the offspring is always born female and always a Nymph. Nymphs are renowned for their beauty and charm. Their voices are very soothing and their presence tends to put those nearby at ease. This produces the false assumption that all Nymphs are fair and kind. They are not. There are many tales of Nymphs charming and seducing hunters only to trick them off the side of a cliff.
Because of their beauty and song, Nymphs have the sad distinction of being the most enslaved, and sought after slave, in the World of Serant. They can often be found in the ‘court’ of humanoid chieftains and warlords singing in chains. Sometimes, entire generations of Nymphs can be found in the gilded cages of evil rulers.
The majority of Nymphs live in small settlements known as Sacred Groves, hidden deep in the forests throughout the World of Serant. There, they carry out the purpose of their creation, to act as gardeners of the forest. However, like the Elves before them, the world outside the Sacred Groves is enticing to those with an adventurous spirit. Those Nymphs that do leave always hide their identity, pretending to be Elves, and tend to stay in the rural areas near forests.
