Instead of being born, this young inquisitive race of omnivorous plant humanoids sprouts, awakening from their pre-life Dream from which they keep the glimpsed knowledge and use it in their future journeys they all are so keen to go on.

They are eager to learn and usually take a direct and honest approach, taking things as they are. When it comes to religion, they prefer proof over belief while being perfectly ready to accept the new reality should any new evidence happen to appear.

The knowledge they acquired while dreaming has been but a taste of what the world offers, and their curious minds make them go on adventures where their names become known, names such as Caedmon, Melrone, Davina, and Amyneddgar.

Sylvari are a young race who recently began to come alive. While most races are born, they are plant humanoids who awaken from the Dream, a pre-life state where the past knowledge acquired during that dream stays with them. They are honest and direct, a society where honor matters and all knowledge is welcomed, and their inquisitive minds guide them towards traveling the world where they can constantly gain new experiences. Think about where the character sprouted, who might be their nearby family, is there any special task they have today, are there any future goals, and think of a name worthy of this honorable and curious approach to life this race takes.
