Drow are a subterranean subrace of elves; with shorter, slimmer, dark-skinned (see the palette below) humanoids with long, pointed ears. Their hair is always stark white, pale yellow or more rarely, silver or copper. They commonly have red eyes, or pale in shades of lilac, silver and blue. They are typically evil, decadent, hedonistic, deceptive and ambitious. From birth, a drow is taught that all other races are beneath them and as a result they are often violent, sadistic and arrogant.

Darkvision: You have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light as though it were bright light, and in darkness as though it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.
Fey Ancestry: You have advantage on Saving Throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put you to sleep.
Keen Senses: You gain proficiency with the Perception skill.
Sunlight Sensitivity: You have poor vision above ground in natural daylight. While in direct sunlight or interacting with a creature in direct sunlight, you roll disadvantage on attack rolls and Wisdom (Perception) checks. (This is the responsibility of the player to enforce on themselves if they so desire, but it is otherwise not strictly enforced unless by a DM.)
Trance: Elves don’t need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. (The Common word for such meditation is “trance.”) While meditating, you can dream after a fashion; such dreams are actually mental exercises that have become reflexive through years of practice. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.
Drow Weapon Training: You have proficiency with rapiers, shortswords and hand crossbows.
