Keen Senses: You have proficiency in the Perception skill.
Fey Ancestry: You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can't put you to sleep.
Trance: Elves don't need to sleep. Instead, they meditate deeply, remaining semiconscious, for 4 hours a day. After resting in this way, you gain the same benefit that a human does from 8 hours of sleep.

Wanderer: You have an excellent memory for maps and geography, and you can always recall the general layout of terrain, settlements, and other features around you. In addition, you can find food and fresh water for yourself and up to five other people each day, provided that the land offers berries, small game, water, and so forth.
Druidic: You know Druidic, the secret language of druids. You can speak the language and use it to leave hidden messages. You and others who know this language automatically spot such a message. Others spot the message's presence with a successful DC 15 Wisdom (Perception) check but can't decipher it without magic.
Spellcasting: Drawing on the divine essence of nature itself, you can cast spells to shape that essence to your will.
• Cantrips: At 1st level, you know two cantrips of your choice from the druid spell list. You learn additional druid cantrips of your choice at higher levels.
• Preparing and Casting Spells: The Druid table shows how many spell slots you have to cast your spells of 1st level and higher. To cast one of these druid spells, you must expend a slot of the spell's level or higher. You regain all expended spell slots when you finish a long rest. You prepare the list of druid spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the druid spell list. When you do so, choose a number of druid spells equal to your Wisdom modifier + your druid level. The spell must be of a level for which you have spell slots. You can also change your list of prepared spells when you finish a long rest.
• Spellcasting Ability: Wisdom is your spellcasting ability for your druid spells, since your magic draws upon your devotion and attunement to nature. You use your Wisdom whenever a spell refers to your spellcasting ability. In addition, you use your Wisdom modifier when setting the saving throw DC for a druid spell you cast and when making an attack roll with one.
• Ritual Casting: You can cast a druid spell as a ritual if that spell has the ritual tag and you have the spell prepared.
• Spellcasting Focus: You can use a druidic focus as a spellcasting focus for your druid spells.

Antheia was born into an enclave of Moon Elves that had splintered off from Silverymoon centuries ago as they sought to establish a land of their own, one with greater religious tolerance. Because all of the group's members, who were primarily followers of Mielikki, regarded the veneration of nature as central to their beliefs. And their wandering pilgrimage, which eventually led them to the Ten-Towns area of Icewind Dale, was their final act of peaceable dissent.

Life upon the frigid tundra was initially difficult for them, but the Moon Elves perservered and even prospered to a certain extent due to their collective survival skills. However, their numbers never grew, only dwindled over time, as they eked out a gray existence just a few leagues east of current-day Bryn Shander. However, Antheia's recent auspicious birth sparked a flicker of hope, for she was found to be naturally gifted in the ancient druidic ways.

To the enclave, the young elven woman was a living embodiment of their ideals. So they groomed her to be their envoy, the one they would send back south to proselytize others of their kind to help bolster their numbers. Unfortunately, Antheia's trip was cut short, for while she was in Luskan she received word that her mother had gone missing. She immediately made plans to return home, even going so far as to getting herself hired on as a guard with the last caravan heading north. Now, it's a race against time to reach the Dale before winter locks the North/South Pass in its icy grip.
