The Arak are a race of sylvan creatures who live in the Shadow Rift. The true nature of the Arak has long been a subject of much debate. Although many travelers call these strange beings drow, this is not accurate. The inhabitants of Arak are no kin to the dark elves and in fact are not elves at all but children of the mysterious Demiplane of Shadow.
Arak have keen senses of humor and are prone to make mischief from time to time. The form this humor takes depends on the personality of the individual, ranging from harmless practical jokes to dangerous and even deadly. The type of Arak involved is also relevant: For example, sith have a morbid sense of humor and portune a very dry wit; shee love to mess with peoples’ emotions, while fir have such a strange sense of humor that other fey do not understand it, much less mortals.
