Tal'Dorei Campaign Setting

With Artagan's help, a group of fey slipped through the defenses of Syngorn while the city was in the Feywild during the Chroma Crisis, and made their home in the mansion of Lady Il'Shavfa by the time the elven city returned to the Material Plane. Within the mansion, the fey partied and experimented with wild new magic, and their pixie leader Windybranch found particular pleasure in planting strange fey plants in the mansion and watching them integrate with it. As a result, the mansion became a living, breathing, and thinking new friend of the fey.[3]
