The land of the Faeries is a beautiful and unpredictable place. It is a land of magic, and
aesthetics. The morale and nature of this world is similar, yet distinctively different
from the mortal world. It is governed by a monarchy of a King and Queen, with the Queen
having the greatest influence. Art is adored and found in every form, and the fey society
is ruled by a strict set of rules:
-The fey cannot lie (they are physically unable to)
-A Faerie cannot break an oath, or promise. If they do so, they are cast out of the Faerie
-It is rude for a Faerie to ask a personal or privet question before they are invited to
-Fey cannot reveal their secrets to a human, lest they be exiled or executed.
-It is rude to show anger in front of another Faerie.
-It is not polite to use common mortal etiquette in the faerie world. They do not use
“Thank you”, or “You’re Welcome”. They are empty words to Faeries. Instead, they
find genuine ways to show their appreciation, or say something like “I appreciate your
-It is rude to not compliment another Faerie if it is obvious that the Faerie purposely
dressed up, or tried to look nicer than usual that day.
Iron/steel is poisonous and leathel to faeries. If a Faerie is wounded with an iron
object, they will most likely die if not healed with powerful magic soon after the injury.
The fey are also weakened, and cannot perform magic if they are exposed to the metal for
long periods of time, or are surrounded by it.
There are many different types of Fey including Sidhe, which are Fey of human height
(usually slightly taller), with striking, seductive beauty, and incredible amounts of
magic. The amount of magic a specific Sidhe has is different from one to the other. These
Faeries are normally of royal blood, and belong to the Seelie Court.
Demi-Fey are the little, winged fairies that humans typically imagine the fey to be.
However, not all of the Demi-Fey have wings, contrary to popular mortal belief, and it is
actually rare. Normally these little creatures fly with magic, on the backs of small
animals and/or insects, or by shape shifting into birds or insects. They vary in sizes but
are normally three to four inches tall. Most of them also have pointy teeth that they use
to bite for either defense or eating. If they are winged (again this is rare) then their
wings are almost completely transparent, and resemble those of a dragonfly’.
These two species are just two types of the fey that reside in this world, and their
appearances differ greatly depending on their levels of magic, and age. Some may appear to
resemble a human, while another is almost completely transparent with large, gaping holes
for eyes. Some fey with the ability to shapeshift may have a physical feature strictly
related to the animal or insect they can change to, for example, a fey that can transform
into a doe may have the eyes of one.
There are also other malicious fey that reside in the Unseelie court, which are
more sinister then the fey of the Seelie. They are usually grotesque in appearance,
though some can be beautiful (dangerously so). The fey of the Unseelie court are not
allowed inside the Seelie Kingdom where the Queen reins, just as if a Seelie court fey
travels outside of their kingdom, they are at the (non-existent) mercy of the Unseelie
fey. Neither court is more powerful than the other, so they are forced to tolerate one

there are many different beliefs about Faeries. The second link states that the Sidhe are
small, and wear green tunics, when in this club, the Sidhe are human sized, if not a bit
