|Dungeons & Dragons creature|
In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the planetouched are mortal creatures whose ancestors were extraplanar creatures such as celestials, fiends, or elementals. Aasimar, tieflings, and genasi are the primary planetouched races. Fey'ri are a type of elf-derived tiefling found in the Forgotten Realms.
Planetouched are considered native outsiders.
