Anulo Drow are slightly taller than their cousins, but weigh about the same. Anulo drow typically have two colors on their body, in a pattern much simlalir to the deva, in which a light pattern, usually a pasty white, light purple, gray or light blue color are usually non-dominant, and the darker colors, which include ebony,dark brown,blue, and purple. There are rare instances of the light colors being dominant, but it's very very rare, and usually signifies something very important about the person. Queen Arana, the founder of the Ra'a rebellion, when redeemed, her skin turned dark brown, her hair black,her eyes were piercing blue, with pupils, with strips of pasty white purple running along her arms.
Playing an Sky Drow
The Sky Drow are not a reclusive race by nature: many are very outgoing and charismatic, in a very direct way, much unlike their dark Drow cousins. Although many Sky Drow still retain the sly and sneaky thinking, and skills Drow of all kind posses, many resent this side of themselves, and vow to use this power only for good. The sky drow are not Xenophobic either, although the way they shut their home to outsiders may seems like it- it is for protection of their people. Many Drow still continue to find ways to eradicate the "filth" of the sky drow from the world, and Githyanki mercenaries are commonly hired and a constant danger to all Sky Drow and their precious air cities.
