Fellan are magical beings that live in the Fell Zone. They existed long before the first humans arrived at Dorne. Fellan have the power to take any shape they want. The weaknesses of the Fellan are salt and metal, which weakens them and cripples their magic.
Fellan are the original inhabitants of Dorne. Since time began, the forest of Dorne had been home to these beings steeped in magic. When, long ago, people from across the sea began settling on Dorne's wild coast, the Fellan were not troubled. Fellan have no use for the coast. The sea is their enemy. The salt in the sea water weakens their magic, as metal does, and the fierce sun of the shore scorches their delicate skins. Besides, the Fellan of that time knew full well that though the newcomers worked with metal, they were not evil beings, but merely wanderers seeking a home.
For some time the two people lived in harmony and marriages between the Fellan and the newcomers were not uncommon. The children of those unions loved the sea as well as the forest. and in their blood the drive of the human and the magic of the Fellan were combined.
However as the years went by, some pioneer farmers began pushing inland, cutting trees to make open fields for crops and herds. Rather than struggling against them, the Fellan withdrew into the depths of their shrinking forests, and from that time on, they were rarely seen by humans.
The Fellan have smooth, ageless faces that can be either green, brown or pale gold to match the environment around them. They have pointed chins, high cheekbones and brows that slant over their eyes. Their eyes are a brilliant green, the colour of the forest. Male and female Fellan both have long, red hair, usually tied in a plait. Fellan wear long robes with hoods that change colour to camouflage themselves.
Fellan have the power to tame beasts of their realm, they can change their shape at will, move from place to place in a breath, speak to each other through their mind an many other wonders that includes controlling the wind and presumably other elements of their forest.
