Let’s get started!

Wandering Dreams of Dal Quor

The Kalashtar is born from the union of a human and a renegade spirit from the Plane of Dreams, known as Dal Quor. In the earlier millennia of the Material World, Eberron and Dal Quor are two interconnected dimensions. The native creatures of Dal Quor can freely visit Eberron as they please. Any creatures from the Material Plane who dream in their sleep are psionically being connected to Dal Quor, and the fragments of their dreams become a reality in it. At the center of Dal Quor came a large spirit called Quar Tarai, who feeds on the dreams that the realm collects. In time, the Quar Tarai created entities from these dreams called Quori. Quoris are mortal beings that live in Dal Quor. They refer to their creator as il-Lashtavar.

In time, Quar Tarai, or il-Lashtavar, became evil and began producing nightmares called the ‘Dreaming Dark’ at the center of Dal Quor. The Quori from the Dreaming Dark invaded the neighboring plane of Eberron and eventually declared war on the rest of the continent of Xen’drik. The giants, with the help of the dragons, subdued this invasion and disconnected the link of Dal Quor to the rest of the Material Plane at a heavy price: It wiped out the entire giant’s race from the continent.

The evil Quori of Dal Quor now seeks new ways to influence and reconnect to the Material Plane. They found out that the only way they can contact other realms is through dreams or psychic projections. However, not all Quori are evil. Some of them grew tired of the evil ways of il-Lashtavar and would prefer a stop with its plan of domination. A rebel group of sixty-seven Quori escaped the Plane of Dreams by transforming themselves into spiritual projections and merging with human monks from the Material Plane. This Quoris transferred their thoughts and spirit unto the monks, creating the first set of Kalashtars in the Material Plane.

Many generations have passed, Kalashtars are no longer possessed with ancient Quori spirits but are born with them. They became a recognized race, a unique union of Quori spirit and human. They were able to bring with them the Quori language and beliefs into the Material Plane. Present-time Kalashtar is tied with the original virtuous spirits of Dal Quor. They devote themselves to shifting the darkness to light. They defend themselves from the influences of the Dreaming Dark by focusing their devotion to the Path of Light. Some bolder Kalashtars seek out agents of the Dreaming Dark to sabotage their plans and protect innocent people. Other Kalashtar grow up isolated and knows nothing about the Dal Quor or the Dreaming Dark. These orphans may tend to use their abilities for personal purposes or begin to act against the virtuous instincts of the Quori spirits within them. This creates internal conflicts and may often lead to hostility.

Kalashtar means ‘Wandering Dreams’ in the Common tongue.

Below is the summary of Kalashtar’s racial features and traits.

Attribute/
Skill Trait
Effect

Ability Score

Increase

Kalashtars are filled with the wisdom of the virtuous Quori spirits. They have a bonus +2 tow Wisdom and a bonus +1 to Charisma.

Age

Kalashtar’s body is still human. They age and mature at the same rate as humans.

Alignment

The virtuous spirit of the Quori binds all the Kalashtar toward lawful and good behavior. They have deep compassion for all living beings. Some Kalashtars, however, resist this virtuous influence.

Size

Medium-sized. A player can set a Kalashtar’s height and weight by following the formula below:

Size Modifier = 2d6

Height = 5 feet + 4 inches + Size Modifier in inches

Weight in pounds = 110 + (1d6 x Size Modifier)

Speed

Kalashtar’s base walking speed is 30 feet.

Dual Mind

A Kalashtar has a combined mind of a human and a Quori. They have an advantage on all Wisdom saving throws.

Mental Discipline

Kalashtars have psionic and psychic abilities making them more resistant to psychic damage.

Mind Link

Kalashtars can speak telepathically to any creatures they see, for as long as the creature is within several feet equal to 10x the Kalashtar’s level. Kalashtars do not need to share a language with the creature and they will always understand your telepathic words.

When using this trait, Kalashtars can use an action to give that creature the ability to speak with you telepathically for 1 hour or until the Kalashtar ends this effect as an action.

The creature must be able to see the Kalashtar to use this ability and should be within the trait’s range. This ability can only be given to one creature at a time; giving it to another creature takes it away from the creature who has it.

Severed from Dreams

When Kalashtars sleep, they do not connect to the Plane of Dreams, unlike other creatures. Instead, their minds recall memories of their Quori spirit as they sleep.

With this, Kalashtars are immune to spells or other magical effects that require creatures to dream. Kalashtars are not immune to spells or magical effects that put them to sleep.

Languages

Kalashtars can speak, read, and write in the Common, Quori, and one other language of their choice.

You were introduced to a list of suggested names for male or female Kalashtar and get to know some weird and funny names. As a finale, we’ll rank our Top 10 Best Kalashtar name suggestions based on our earlier list. The rankings are based on how the name sounds and how relevant is the lore for a Kalashtar character. Check them out below!

Rank
Name
Gender
Description

1

Vilkhor

/vil-kor/

Male

Earning our top spot is the name Vilkhor. We place it on this spot because we like the lore and how the name sounds. ‘Khor’ means preeminence in the Common tongue, depicting a powerful or a superior Quori. We also like the background story of a human who merged with an agent of a Dreaming Dark, producing a corrupted Kalashtar. Something new, yes.

2

Lenovyr

/le-no-vir/

Male or Female

Kalashtars have mind powers or psychic abilities. So, we came to the idea of having a Kalashtar that can take a glimpse of the future (that’s psychic too, right?). Lenovyr is the name for this Kalashtar; a human who communes with its Quori spirit Novyr. Additionally, the name sounds ‘Quori’ and rings a nice tone when used as a Kalashtar name.

3

Quivauri

/ki-vaw-ri/

Male or Female

On the third spot is Quivauri, the Kalashtar of the Deep Mind. Quivauri is a Kalashtar that has a deep understanding of the course of nature and time. Quite impressive for a background description. We also like the story of Vauri, fighting il-Lashtavar together with its twin sibling but ends up being defeated.

4

Halekesh

/ha-le-kesh/

Male or Female

First off, this name sounds great for a Kalashtar character. Additionally, the story of Halekesh revolves around defending the weak and the oppressed. A trait that we expect to see in a generic Kalashtar; someone who follows the Path of Light and gives value and hopes to every creature.

5

Ythalga

/i-tal-ga/

Male or Female

Ythalga the Stellar earned the 5th spot for this list. We love the idea of a Kalashtar who feels their distant connection with the Plane of Dreams. Its Quori counterpart probably misses their homeland, and would one day want to return with the Path of Light away from the nightmares. Whatever the reason for this connection, it’s for the players to further expound.

6

Vehereth

/ve-he-reth/

Female

For the 6th spot, we have Vehereth the Ethereal one. What we like about this name is the way it is pronounced. It sounds classy, right? Aside from that, the background lore of a psychic Kalashtar that can feel the pain and suffering of those around her is admirable and awesome.

7

Dolvonash

/dol-vo-nash/

Male or Female

We also include on the list a Kalashtar that has no history or knowledge about the Quori and the Plane of Dreams. We are amazed by how this character may discover his powers on his own and learn of his true self (character development, huh?). Lots of possible stories that we can add to this name. In the meantime, we are putting this name at the 7th spot.

8

Quallari

/ka-la-ri/

Female

This name is one of our favorite picks (but we didn’t put it on the number 1 spot. We’re not that biased). It gives us a nice tone on how a Kalashtar name should sound like. Additionally, we want the description of a Kalashtar having a dusk-like eye and black hair that greatly resembles the Quori spirit within her.

9

Myrkhala

/mir-ka-la/

Male or Female

This Kalashtar name is derived from ‘Khala’, meaning ‘daylight’. Wow, it’s a nice name itself and it gets even better with the background lore. Myrhkala is an inspirational Kalashtar that everyone aspires to be. We see her as someone filled with knowledge and wisdom.

10

Eshaveth

/e-sha-vet/

Female

Last but not the least, Eshaveth earned our 10th spot for this list. What we love about this name is its affinity with the concept of balance. She is someone who strives for balance, whether good or evil. Talk about being chaotic neutral, we find her to be someone who understands the world as something that cannot progress without good and evil dwelling in it.
