Their Place in the World
The Ancient Fey are the oldest creatures in the entirety of Isekai and their descendants are numerous, it is said that the goddess Lycana
made them with the intent of watching them explore and experience all the world had to offer. Their role in the Eldritch War
was a primal one as they seemed to ignore the existence of the creatures until they touched and sapped the strength of the Feywild
in various areas, at that point they responded like the immune system of the world and greatly weakened the monsters though they paid dearly for their intervention and some areas of the Feywild
are lost forever. The Ancient Fey are emotional creatures that vary far more than any on Isekai in temperament, shape, and powers allotted to them but they are sources of vast experience and magical might that few creatures of even the Divine Races
can hope to match.
Currently, they reside almost exclusively within the Feywild
and the Shadowfell
. The most powerful of the Ancient Fey claim areas to themselves and make small kingdoms as they divide up the world. They are considered almost godlike in these areas, changing their weather and geography with whims as slight as a mood swing. A well-known member of their race is a being that is five generations from the first of the Ancient Fey, an early member of the Fairy
race known as Festival Snix
the Fairy King, he qualifies as an Ancient Fey due to his emergence in the world far before the actual race of Fairies
The Ancient Fey have very little in the way of traditional law, in their world emotion is made material and magic is the measure of your will made into power. In a sense their world revolves around a Might is Right mentality though they are quite whimsical, aloof, and obsessed with things that most creatures would think mere madness. As a whole, these creatures answer to very few beings and expect nothing from another person unless that person intends to enter or reside in their domain. They recognize the goddess Lycana
as their mother and direct authority but they could hardly be called lawful creatures, a type of chaos that blurs the line of good and evil is the norm for this society and when two powerful beings clash they simply have it out with little regard for collateral damage in the area.
They find other races adorable, things like Elves
that have descended from them are treated like small children. Races that resemble their offspring, like Humans
, are treated the same way and they usually do not acknowledge the idea of a given creature being an adult in their own culture.
The Ancient Fey will dislike a race based upon things that seem superficial like voice tone or demeanor. For this reason, they dislike a few types of Dragons
such as Gold for being too strict and Red for being too arrogant, Green for playing games that are rather pointless, and Mithril for being "too concerned about the future." They will tend to dislike people that they consider to be "unfun" or not jovial enough, while this differs from individual to individual they seem to measure a person's worth by how much they align with their own whims and fancy.
The Ancient Fey can be insulted by seemingly anything and likewise anything may be taken as a joke, interacting with them is to be done at your own peril.
