I told him no right off the bat...But he's extremely insistent about it Just tell the player "no," again; you are allowed to do that as DM There are a number of reasons for this. An invisible stalker is an elemental; PCs are humanoids1 The CR of an invisible stalker is 6; it usually takes 2 or 3 PCs of level 6 to defeat an invisible stalker; the ...

Ask the player "why?" First step to solving these types of issues is asking why they want a thing. If the character wants to be invisible all the time just for the sake of that, just say no.

Some of this is do-able in 5e, but some is not. If I understand your question correctly, you're asking if this highly specific character build can be made in D&D 5th edition. Do-able Some of this is possible, and your DM wil probably grant most requests: Backstory details are entirely fine in 5th edition. The Fullangr doesn't exist in D&D 5e, but ...

One thought, allow them to be invisible, but at a low level they have not ability to interact with the world around them while invisible. For instance, they can walk though doors and walls,but cannot open doors. They can view everything around them, but cannot pick up things. This forces them to come out of invisibility then once fully visible (whole) they ...
