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