Fae—Fairies. Any number of Paran races that resulted from the Schism that formed the two separate Courts. Initially there was only one race of Fae—the Sidhe—with a single queen. The rise of humans began to cause issues among the Sidhe. Some wanted to kill the fledgling race while others felt it was best to just let them be. A small group of Sidhe began to encourage the growing unrest. Tensions became so high that the Sidhe began to become corrupted, forming the various races of the Fae. This strife caused the Sidhe queen to split somehow—An event called the Schism—And formed two distinct entities with personalities cleaved along the same lines as the races. The Seelie, or Light Fae, ruled by Queen Titania, favored leaving the humans to their own devices, while Queen Mab and the Unseelie or Dark Fae favored wiping humans out. The small group of Fae that instigated the Schism were labeled as traitors and are referred to as Anseelie—those of neither light nor dark. No one knows how many races there are of any Court, but neither of the two Courts can hold sway over the other for very long without serious ramifications for the world at-large. Fae are all conniving and untrustworthy, but they cannot lie or break their word, which they are loathe to give. Honor binds them to their word. The Anseelie Fae are completely anathema and follow no such contrivances. Full members of either Court are of pure Sidhe lineage. Some Fae have issues with water, while all have issues with alloys of metal and particularly iron. They have no known life spans.
