In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, the elan is a type of fictional creature for player characters to encounter. Players can also use the elan as a player character race.

Publication history[edit]

The elan appeared in the third edition in the Expanded Psionics Handbook (2004).[1] The Athasian elan appeared as a player character race for the Dark Sun setting in Dragon #319 (May 2004).


Elan are a race of aberrations with psionic powers. Originally human, they are changed into a new form by other elan. While still humanoid looking, they are immortal and able to sustain their bodies with psionic power instead of food and drink.
