About Edit

Fey ClassificationsEdit

Powers and Abilities Edit

Weaknesses Edit

  • Iron: Iron sickness—It saps Fey energy, tears through their defenses like silver does to a were.[1]

Source of Magic Edit

  • A massive energy of the planet as it moves at terrifying speeds through space. Gravity, sunlight, the pull of the moon, can all be converted to energy by those who know how—like the Fey, to a much lesser degree, lycanthropes.[2]

Fey Protocol, Customs, Traditions, etc.Edit

  • Fey protocol demands a gift to gain an audience. [3]

Character / NatureEdit

  • Fey women who are full bloods want full-blooded children, for the prestige and also because many estates cannot be passed to half-bloods. Those who are already partly human also want a full-blood so as not to weaken the line further.

Anti-Slaving AgreementEdit

  • In 1624 an agreement was worked out between the Fey and the Silver Circle stating that no more abductions of witches or any female magic users were to take place.[4]

Illegal AliensEdit

The Fey have been coming into the mortal world for centuries. But the numbers have greatly increased recently because the Light Fey have been making things difficult for the Dark Fey—like Gargoyles. The mages who handle Fey affairs for the Silver Circle have been complaining about the number of unauthorized arrivals as a result. [5]

Physical DescriptionEdit

  • Tall, but with a slender, almost willowy build.[6]
  • they moved like gazelles, with a quick, springy grace and perfect balance.[7]
  • Light Fey are as legendary for their beauty as the Dark are for their gruesomeness.[8]
  • Gracefully curved ears that stuck up through the hair.

  • The Light Fey and the Dark Fey blame the other side as the one slaving witches. [10]
  • A lot vampires didn't believe in the Fey–that they existed. [11]
  • Regular weapons won't do much against the Fey—magical powers to hold up against their power. [12]
  • Those who enter Faerie without passes get an automatic death sentence.[13]
  • Kit Marlowe uses the Dark Fey to spy on the Light Fey, and vice versa. [14]
  • Flora and fauna are used as spies by the Dark Fey. [15]
  • Fey are really fond of babies.[16]
  • Fey never produced a Null —so they'd been looking for a way to add that gift to their magical arsenal.[17]

  • Used to kidnap witches to help wiht their fertility problem, supposedly outlawed now.[19]
  • Real names are never used—can be used to strengthen magic spells.[20]
  • Calling the Fey "Elves" is considered a derogatory term among the Fey—only humans use the term.[21]

Two-Natured FeyEdit

  • Both sides gain some of the other's abilities, making you far stronger in either form than you would have been otherwise[22]
  • When one of the Two-Natured reaches puberty, they usually come into their second self. If not, it tends to happen the first time they have intercourse with another Fey. [23]
  • The power unleashed is always considerable, and some families can feel it when a new child manifests. [24]

Fey History of Slaving Edit

Events in the Series Edit

This section may have spoilers. Think of the book title as a "Spoiler Warning" if you haven’t read it yet.

1. Touch the DarkEdit

The Fey are livid that they lost one of their nobles in the crossfire between Rasputin and the Senate.[26] Tony has been selling Witches to the Fey—Slaving.[27] Per Billy Joe: "Dark Fey have traced the problem to Tony. They can't afford for the Light Fey to outbreed them, but with fertile magic users to help with the population shortage, that's what's going to happen fairly soon. And then the Light Fey will rule all of Faerie." Tony allied with Rasputin to get protection from M.A.G.I.C. and the Dark Fey.[28] Per Mircea: one of the witches Cassie assisted came to the Circle to describe her captivity. Both the Dark Fey and the Light Fey deny the practice of Slaving and point the finger at the other side.[29]
