Fae So Wild That They Defied Immortality
They were not of this realm, not of this place or time. Yet here they are, The fae of legend and lore. But the strangest part of all was that they were toiling in the dirt with the rest of us.Vierda and by extension all of Hune is home to a vast swath of mortal beings. Yet none have earned there place among them more perplexingly then the Alfaer. For like there distant cousins of Gnome and Boggart lineages they did not come from the bones of Giants but from the blood of Til Na Drah. It is however in The power they relinquished in traveling to Hune that truly sets the apart from other fae. The Alfaer are decedents of The fae courts, the high nobility of the fairer realm. They gave up immortality and magics beyond reason to become more human, more mortal, why such might folk do this willingly, not even they seem to fully understand. They now live among man, facing the same hardships and trails as any other mortal, but with the wild grace and unusual magics blessed to them even now in their new forms. The Alfaer are unbound by their Fae nature, allowing them to grow and change something that even the fae king or queen can not truly obtain. This untethering to their nature has left them alien in the eyes of both worlds. While An Alfaer remains on Hune they are not really the same person they once were, they can't understand the choices of there past and it left many among them wonder. Who am I and what am I capable of?
As Til Na Drah is a warped reflection of Hune, so to are Alfaer a mirror of humanity, with some wild twist of course. In general Alfaer can present themselves as male, female or a combination of the two. They range in heights but are more often thinner and shorter then humanity. while some might call them delicate, that would be a fatal mistake to make. They are just as powerful and quick as other faekin. Beyond the basics of humanity they show, Alfaer also have quite a few odd additions to there physical form. These can be broken down by the type of Fae they were in there past life. weather from Bramble lineage which often presents itself with traits like hooved feet, rams horns or maybe green flower hair. An Alfaer might have some, all or none of these particular characteristics and yet still be considered a member of the Bramble line. The Fae with Moors blood, often have raven black hair or odd shadows. Then there are The Alfaer of The Heights who have some of the most dramatic feature. That being wings of course. While not universal most of there kind have beautiful bird or insect wings that can bore them aloft if not saddle with too much weight.
Genetics and Reproduction
Alfaer can reproduce both with each other and with the various diverges of humanity. Regardless however the resulting child will always be a Blooded Changling. The reason for this is a matter of some debate. ranging from a the burden of their transformation into mortals to a curse place upon them by the courts. Regardless the outcome is the same Alfaer are not born, they are created.
