Details

Both more rugged and more ruthless than normal pixies, the aridni are an especially greedy breed of fey bandits and kidnappers.
These ashen-faced fey with gray moth wings fire green-glowing arrows with a sneer and a curse.
Caravan Raiders. They’ve developed different magical abilities that aid them well when they raid caravans for captives to enslave and sell; charming foes into slavery is a favorite tactic.
Wealth for Status. They delight in taking plunder from humans and dwarves, not so much for its own sake but as a sign of their power over mortals, and their contempt for those who lack fey blood.

Environments
 
Tactics Pale Archers. Aridni prefer ranged combat whenever possible, and they are quite difficult to lure into melee. They sometimes accept a personal challenge or respond to accusations of cowardice.
