The Fey

The Fey includes any magical group with a primary drive of survival. They will do anything to stay alive, which drives them to be some of the greatest inventors and innovators among the MythosStep into a 15,000-year history through the eyes of its leas....

World name: the Silver DawningThe parallel world of the Fey. It's... shall we say, colorfu....

The Fey don’t do well away from natural light. They also feed on love and other such emotions – very different emotions, which at times can cause problems. All that emotion-feasting began because of the ThroneSee Mab (throne) and Jaden (scepter).(More will come soo... and the ScepterSee Mab (throne) and Jaden (scepter)., in the First WarThe first war the world ever knew was so great, so horrific,.... (More on THAT another time.)

They are honestly magpie-like; they collect. This means weapons, jewels, spells, CDs (or more likely, vinyl records)….

Books, cars, nicely woven baskets, goats, trees, friends….

Memories, kisses, songs, fans, enemies….

Fingerprints, candy, number of times counting the stars, differently-colored grains of sand, one single spoon from every single country….

You get the idea. It’s so ingrained in them that they don’t usually realize what it is they’re collecting. GreyJohn Baron Grey: runaway Unseelie prince and heir to The Thr..., for example, has no idea; he thinks he doesn’t collect things.

The Fey age slowly and not entirely differently from humans, but the way their bodies show it is unique: they harden. They can move and procreate and bleed red blood, but their skin and flesh lose their softness. They move more slowly. In the end, when they’re about to die (if they live to the end of their natural thousand-year span, which doesn’t happen often), they resemble statues.

The primary Fey drive is survival. They have an instinct for self-preservation that borders on prescient; trollsThe source of "dwarf" rumors - but only because of young tro... often joke that Fey are the canaries of the “upside” (above-ground) world: if there’s even a whiff of trouble, you can count on the Fey to sniff it out first. Their power is a little more complicated, and I won’t be able to go into it fully here. I’ll just say this: after the First War, the Fey withdrew word-wide. Some of them hid completely; some, like the Seelie and Unseelie Fey, are much more public, but at a price. The magic they create is channeled away from them and to the power-base for each empire, the Throne and the Scepter, respectively. As a result, they have to find external means to refill their own power.

Trivia: DragonsDragons (not to be confused with "dargons") are among the mo... call them children of the grasses because they scuttle around in the grass (from a dragon’s point of view).
