The phaethon are a fascinating and unusual race. They are said to have once been a tribe of danaan who trafficked much with beings of elemental Fire. In a great work of magic, they were all radically transformed, and took a new name for themselves from the being who had worked the change. A phaethon resembles a particularly tall, thin, sharp-featured elf with coppery skin and fiery red eyes. Most striking, though, are the fire-sheathed wings that sprout from their backs, which they are known for using to burn their opponents in combat. Phaethon are stronger and more sturdy than their dana kin, but have lost many of the gifts of the danaan, mentally and otherwise; however, they have gained others of their own. Typical of this is that they have lost their nightvision, but that the light cast by their fiery wings removes the need for it.

Phaethon have a great degree of tolerance for fire and heat, though they can still be burned; they also have great difficulty with cold and water. Even the touch of water brings them pain. As well, they retain the fey vulnerability to iron, in greater degree if anything. They live in a great variety of climes despite these things, however, and are relatively gregarious. They still speak Sperethiel, and have also, interestingly enough, formed close alliances with the Pixies, and speak Aelvalie fluently. Their lives are much shorter than those of danaan, a mere 500 years on average, but they often seem to live more fiercely. They posses all of the usual Fey Abilities.
