Fetchlings, sometimes known as kayal,[6] are descendants of humans who long ago became trapped on the Shadow Plane.[7]


Warped by the alien energies of the Shadow Plane, fetchlings have become extremely slender in build, with stark white or black hair and pale yellow eyes. To combat their monochromatic nature, they often dye their hair with vivid colors acquired from plane-traveling merchants.[7]


Fetchlings have a reputation as travelers. Many fetchlings leverage their natural agility as swashbucklers or rogues. The Shadow Plane's influence evokes hidden power in many fetchling bards or sorcerers (especially those of the shadow bloodline) or drives them to research deeper mysteries as witches or wizards.[8]


As they are aware of their extraplanar origins, they often serve as middlemen between visitors to the Shadow Plane and its other native inhabitants. They make up nearly the majority of Shadow Absalom, although they do not rule it.[7]
