Backstory of another character I had once. (Because I thought it was cool and didn't want to delete it.)
Rathe was born by accident into human form but is actually a member of a barely sentient race from another plane of existence that cannot die but normally just do nothing other than exist. Anything capable of detecting psionics will be able to notice his true form.
Rathe lived on a farm and tended to the animals for most of his life but rarely did anything else. He had a cat and a good family who suggested he study magical arts with his intellect but he never really cared about doing anything but living. When a friend of his parents who was a wizard at a local cabal came to interview Rathe he noted that Rathe had an unusual aura about him. He told Rathe that he was actually a psion and said he would hire a psion to investigate Rathe further. When the psion came with the wizard a few weeks later he determined that Rathe was not completely human and that he was a member of a race of psionic jellyfish-like beings that he had heard legends about from an obscure tome of Illithid lore. Many years later, when both of Rathe's parents had died and he was left to tend the farm, Rathe was abducted by a radical clerical group who opposed all psionics and they attempted to banish him back to his home plane. Because of his unusual nature Rathe was sent catapulting through the planes until he arrived at the town by chance. Rathe has decided to never use his psionic powers in any capacity since that time.
Miscellaneous: Rathe's species is basically a bunch of large sized psionic jellyfish floating around in an infinite demiplane doing nothing. Their tentacles are not harmful as they have no natural enemies and they are psionic because of the nature of the plane they inhabit. Rathe is controlling his human body by tethering his tentacles to it's various parts and moving them in the same space as the organs they inhabit. He is well tethered to his body such that he travels with it, but he might not be able to control his body as efficiently if it were too large.
In another similarity to jellyfish, Rathe's species cannot actually have predators. As such the plane in which they are currently residing holds a massive population of them and that population constantly increases at an exponential rate (a single female can produce thousands of new members within an hour). The reproductive process is not involuntary but they have little in the way of sentience to inhibit it. Also, for the moment at least, they cannot reproduce on planes other than their home plane of existence. Rathe is the single disturbing exception which he hopes will be an isolated occurrence lest the multiverse be swarmed with his kind. His kind swarming the multiverse might not be a problem in terms of crowding as they can move through absolutely everything and do not even physically interact with each other (even during the mating process). However, if they were not completely transparent as is the case on their home plane (they are semi-transparent on their home plane and not visible on others without special enhancements to sight such as detecting psionics) it could be difficult for native denizens of planes to see very far without impediment.
