Shadar-kai names - Dungeons & Dragons

This name generator will give you 10 names that will generally fit the Shadar-kai in the Dungeons & Dragons universe.

The Shadar-kai are elf-like fey beings who worship the Raven Queen within Shadowfell, though other origin stories float about as well. They usually have gray skin and dark hair, though there are variations on this as well. Shadowfell turned them into beings devoid of most emotions, though anger still coursed through their veins. They were also cursed by a "shadow curse", which would sap parts of their soul whenever they were incapacitated or close to death. While possible to resist this pull, once part of a soul has been pulled it is forever lost to the Plane of Shadow and future pulls are all the harder to resist. The curse drained their will to live as well, making most Shadar-kai live with an often dangerous disregard for their own safety, though many do strife for glory in order to reach some form of immortality after their death through the stories told of their deeds.

Shadar-kai names are quite melodic with a few guttural elements here and there, with male names being slightly more melodic than female names despite female names ending in vowels quite often. Names are usually 2-3 syllables long, though female names lean more often toward 3 syllables than male names.
