Faeries are ancient beings that were said to cause mischief to humans and other living creatures by ways of magic. They can be benevolent or malevolent, exerting good or bad influences over the lives of humans. The fae are a rapidly dying breed, already on the fringes of extinction, mostly due to vampires hunting them down and draining them of blood. In our world, they have the appearance of humans, although no more of ‘pure blood’ remain: even with both faeries for parents, a faerie holds some percentage of human blood in them. When a fairy dies a corpse is not left, just a sparkling powder (or fairy dust); the body just disintegrates. Faeries are secretive about their own race, customs, interactions and world. Those who have fae blood in them but one human parent have limited powers while maintaining some of the qualities of fairies.

Strengths

  • STEALTH
  • HERBAL HEALING - healing oneself through ways of plant essence.
  • PLANT MANIPULATION - older fae can create, shape and manipulate plants, including wood, vines, plants, moss, and parts of the plants, such as leaves, seeds, fruits and flowers. The user can cause plants to grow, move/attack or even rise from the soil and “walk”, mutate plants by rearranging DNA structure and revive withered or dead plants. It takes a lot of time and energy to master this ability, therefore newer fae have very little control over it.
  • GLAMOUR - the use of glamour depends on the faerie. Some use glamour to change their appearance while others can use it to create illusions by bending light. The older the faerie, the stronger and more detailed the illusions are. Some faeries use glamour to hide from enemies or they can hide another person, thing or even a specific place. Typically, glamour is a defensive power, used more for protection than as a weapon.
  • TELEPATHY - faeries are able to read the thoughts of any sentient creature that gives off brain waves (which means it excludes vampires). They can receive images or sentences, depending on the person. If they concentrate, they can “turn off” this ability. If they focus hard enough, they can “enter” another person’s mind and “reset” memories that have been tampered with.
  • MAGIC REVERSAL - it has been shown that fae can break and reverse magic spells cast by witches if their intentions are pure. However this takes a lot of energy and can be incredibly draining, so is not something to be undertaken lightly. The type of magical spells and curses that a ferie can reverse is strongly dependant on the strength of the faerie and the power behind the witch who performed the spell. Faeries are aware that it is very unlikely for them to survive a magic reversal.
  • ATTRACTIVENESS - faeries are extremely attractive to all species. None more so than vampires who have a hard time resisting the mythical creatures because of their smell and taste; fairy blood is intoxicating to vampires.
  • LONGER LIFESPAN - faeries can live much longer than most other creatures, but only faeries who are born from two faerie parents have immortality. Faeries that have one human parent will eventually face natural death but can live up to 150 years of age. This type of immortality does not make them invulnerable to injury. All faeries can be injured or drained of their blood to the point of their deaths. Upon dying, a fairy returns to their original appearance and their corpse dissolves into glittering dust.

Weaknesses

  • IRON - Direct contact with iron will burn a fey’s skin unless they have an anti-iron magical ring. Without one, even the smell of iron will choke a fey if too much contact.
  • FIRE
  • POISONOUS BUGS AND PLANTS -There are certain bugs and plants in the supernatural world that are poisonous to faeries.
  • VAMPIRES -Their attractiveness to vampires are their greatest weakness and it is the reason why most of the faeries are extinct 

Glossary

  • GLAMOUR - a type of power that the faeries can use. It is fueled by the emotions of others, including lust, love, and fear. The fey commonly use glamour to appear invisible or play tricks on others minds.
    FAE - another name for faerie folk
    IMP - a type of faerie folk known to cause more mischief than the average fae. This is often done with darker intentions. Imps are talented pranksters and they make excellent spies, as they can sneak along quietly and disguise themselves or disappear when necessary.

Fae Blood

  • INTOXICATION - any vampire that drinks fey blood becomes intoxicated with it, going into a state humans would describe as “drunk”. The amount of drunkenness displayed by a vampire depends on the amount of fey blood the vampire drank.
  • DAYWALKING - depending on the amount of blood drank, vampires grow immune to their weakness to sunlight after drinking fairy blood. The effects last shortly, however, and the pureness of the blood is a factor too.

Fae Names

A fae will never give away their full names. These are distinct and often secret to everyone because offering up their full name is essentially giving away their free will. Using the name and any command, the fae MUST obey it. This could even mean killing themselves. Because of this, fae will often choose an alias to go by. It’s not a rule that fae can’t give their real names to people but it’s very dangerous. They usually will only do this to people they absolutely love and trust.

Their true name is given to fae by their parents through a ceremony where they are partially immersed in water before their parents claim their name, thus connecting them to nature. This ceremony is typically performed as soon as fae are born, but it can be performed much later in life. However, fae who don’t go through the ceremony aren’t connected with nature and thus cannot access their fae powers: aside from immortality and their delicious vampire-luring blood, they’ll be completely human.

Hello, members and applicants!  First off, we are proud to announce we’ve reached 45+ characters!  However, we seem to have an imbalance as far as species are concerned.  For that reason, we’ll be momentarily holding off on accepting any new applications for vampires (wanted connections excluded) until we get a little more variety.  In case we receive new applications for vampires, they’ll be added to a waiting list.  We are in need of more merfolk and humans specially, but any species other than vampires will do.  We will let you know when this temporary ban is over and we thank you for your patience.

Have you ever ripped the wings off a bug?-closed rp

Vin was very much a nocturnal creature, and it was wonderful to get to hunt on his own once again. He’d left a note, of course, he wasn’t rude. Of course, he did fail to realize that, ‘Hey, survivors probably don’t know the language of the ruins’, but at least he made an effort. 

He’d given himself a week- though of course, he knew it wouldn’t take that long at all. It was just to get some exploring in as well. Vin had been trekking through the forest ever since the sun had touched the horizon, and it was nearing moonrise. He’d picked up on a rather peculiar scent and decided to follow it; not only did it lead not too far off but it was also an area he was unfamiliar with. Killing two crows with one rock. Excellent.

Ailene => Take shelter.

> Erm…well…to the best of your ability. You’re down one leg and one hand, leading a delicious meat trail for the beast with your blood. You’d been foolish to gamble such a prize, to hunt such a creature. Your entire mission lay on the verge of being dashed against the rocks- oh, and your life too, but this paled in comparison..

> You huddle up in a hollowed tree, scarcely visible to the eye but a blatant eyesore to the nose. You have your rifle. You’ll go down fighting if you must.

I was listening to fleetwood mac and I remembered that noxernia and I had come up with a faery themed Kingdom Hearts RP where Zexion was a high sidhe member of the winter court….

so i drew a pointy faerie baby. (I changed his features a good bit from how I usually draw him mostly because… in my head, the higher ranking fae all look pointy and winter fae look especially glass-like. So sharp edges and all that.)
