The Feytouched
Every now and then, some sort of mystical spirit pops into the prime material plane and likes what it sees. Then it mates with what it sees. Gross, considering the anatomy of some mortal races, but it still happens. Anyways, the result of said nastiness is a Feytouched. Half-Giant or Half-Humanoid and half-fey. "Half" fun.

Half-life Due to your shadowy nature, you are both considered living and undead for various effects. However, you still receive magical healing that normally does not effect undead. This makes you resistant against necrotic and poison damage, but weak against radiant damage.
