Faeries are a set of supernatural creatures that appear in a wide variety of shapes. They are legendary for the bright whimsy and dark terror that they bring with them.

Also Known As: Fairies, Fae, Fey, The Good Folk, The Gentry, The Sidhe

Common Locations: Everywhere in the Faelands.

Pureborn: The Unformed

All Pureborn Fae begin their existence in the same manner — as an invisible disembodied spirit. No one is exactly certain how they come into existance. One popular theory is that new Faeries are unconsciously created by the Dreaming Ones. The new Faerie has consciousness, but no form. In the early stage of its existence, it does little but float about and observe the life around it. This may go on for years, until it has learned to use its Glamour to communicate with others. Then it may project an image that it can use to interact with others. Common images are Wisps, Ghosts, or Sprites. This practice of projecting insubstantial images has encouraged the uninformed to confuse the Fae with the spirits of the dead. Continue reading

Johann Katz

Johann Katz“I don’t want you to go, Johann.”

The childlike queen crushed the ginger Tomcat to her. He gave her a hug around the neck with his front paws as he spoke,”I know, your majesty, but we agreed that this was an important mission. I will return to you in six months with much news of the mortal world.”

“Yes, yes,” she sighed, “There is an Evil growing here. I only wish that the Round Table hadn’t asked for you. They were adamant that a Fey with your knowledge of magic would be a perfect spy.”

She lowered him to the farm road just outside Berlin, Germany. He gave a little shiver as his paws touched mortal soil for the first time. There was so much power here! So different from back home. His eyes closed as the sun caressed his furry face. So much brighter than home! The sweet scent of hay and wildflowers reached his nostrils and he breathed deeply. He was already in love with this place.

Like a candle melting in reverse, his form began to grow taller and broader.  Ginger fur changed to golden blonde hair as his new face began to match the image of the German youth he had formed in his mind. He kept one aspect of his original cat form, his tail. His Glamour clothed the new form in the style of the day to cover that imperfection. He opened brilliant blue eyes and looked at Titania.

She pouted prettily at him in an attempt to break his heart and make him come back with her, “I’ve already lost you, haven’t I?”

“Never,” the conviction in his voice surprised him, “I will always be your little brother. I will see you in six months.”

With that, the newly-minted vagabond took his first step into a new life.

Cait Sith

“Johann? Are you all right? It is time to wake up, little one!”

Cat Sith

Traditional Cait Sith,

One would think that a voice could not sound so sweet and so imperious simultaneously, but Titania managed to do it on a regular basis. At her command, Johann opened his golden eyes, blinked away the sleep stuff and yawned. He wobbled to his four feet and took a few experimental steps on the Faerie Queen’s bed.

She smiled sweetly to him, “How do you feel? Is it a comfortable fit? I really do think it’s my best work!”

He mewled to her and she scritched him under his furry chin. His head felt confused, but he was bursting with energy! So many sensations! He playfully batted at her hand as she withdrew it. She placed a silver mirror in front of him so he could see himself.

He cocked his head to the side and the cat in the mirror did so as well. Handsome little ginger beast, but something was wrong. Some part of his memory kept nagging at him. After several seconds of admiring himself, it struck him like a lightning bolt.

He reared up on his hind legs and spoke in the best voice he could manage, “THIS ISN’T WHAT I ASKED FOR!”


The Cait Sith are a Fey race that took the form of cats when they decided to manifest into a physical body, or a changeling that was born into the shape.

Common Locations: Northern Avalon and Tir Nan Og.

Appearance

Traditionally, Cait Sith possess black fur with a white spot upon their chest. This traditional form is that of the Kellas Cat of Scotland, which is a hybrid of wild and domestic cats. Wearers of this shape have reported to find it excellent for living in the wild, but not especially disturbing to humans.

Newer Cait Sith often choose to resemble common house cats, with a variety of colors and sizes. The Fey that have taken on these forms often do this to blend in better in human society.

Racial Abilities

Caith Sith all possess the Fey powers of Glamour, Shapeshifting, and Telekinesis, but are rarely seen using them. This is due to how deeply the Fey gets into the ‘role’ of being a cat. Many of them simply forget these powers, since most of them will consider using anything other and fangs and claws is somehow cheating.

They have claws and fangs, naturally. Of course, they also possess the agility and senses of a cat.

Cait Sith are capable of human speech.

Many Cait Sith aren’t entirely happy with paws, since they want to manipulate objects like a human would. These Fey will often develop “pawhands” with fingers that they can extend to handle and grip, but then curl up to act as ordinary paws.
