Unseelie

The Unseelie, is the title given to the creatures, dark fae, and
other wild abominations that live in the realm of the soulless.
These beings are powerful, dark forces of chaotic energy, that
follow the beliefs of their King.
It wasn't always this way, because at one point the
Seelie, Unseelie and humanity all lived together on Earth. This
was until the great war took place and the kingdoms were split
into three. The realm of the soulless, a dark and toxic place of
death and decay, the realm of the souls, a bright and annoying
place of sunshine and goody-goodies, and Earth, where the
weak and pathetic humans live in ignorance.
Once the worlds were split, very few possessed the
power to jump from world to world, meaning all the angry dark
creatures were stuck living in a world together. As you can
imagine, if not for the Dark King's guidance, all would have
turned to chaos. However, under his rule a hierarchy of power
and a social order was established.
The realm of the soulless may be dark, with a black
sun and oil-like water, but it is filled with the greatest power Unseelie Disadvantages:

the Unseelie were happy to help. The resulting effect was more (Mortums, Lunaris, and Changlings only)
than they hoped for.
When the first demon broke through the barrier
between the abyss and Earth, it had an additional
consequence. It weakened the barrier between all worlds and
the Unseelie loved it. Now able to push through they have
began to plunge into the chaos that is now the human world,
devouring everything they wish.
That is not to say all Unseelie are so primally
motivated, some just like the freedom, some came for the
battle, and some came to taste demonic souls. Regardless, they
are now here, and the world is forever changed by it.

Noble: You belong to a noble household. +1000 gp to start the

Ankou:

Appearance: Tall, beautiful and graceful, are a few words to describe


an Ankou. They are by far the most enchanting race of Unseelie from
the realm of the soulless. They have eyes of bright sapphire, gold,
silver, red, or turquoise and long pointed ears.
They have a nobility about them that entices, even seduces
others to them.

Personality: As the oldest and perhaps the strongest Unseelie race,


Ankou think of themselves as nobles. They take positions of power and
surround themselves with those they view as capable.
Although they hate the term vampire, whom they
perceive as weak and foolish, humans often refer to them as such
because of their need for blood. As all Unseelie are carnivorous
creatures, the Ankou ingest blood. They do not bite their prey, as that
would cause a euphoric reaction for their victims, instead they use
compulsion to make their victims cut themselves. Watching weak
minded humans harm themselves gives them both sustenance and
amusement.

History: The Ankou have been at the top of society and instrumental
in every major unseelie war. In the order of hierarchy, they are
ranked just below the T'dias, as the highest position attainable by
any race in the realm of the soulless.
When the first demons were summoned and the war against
humanity raged, they sent through their Lunaris troupes to clear Blood need: Ankou must consume at least 1 cup of blood a day to retain his

Changling:
Appearance: As shapeshifters they can alter their
appearance to fit their needs, making them impossible to
describe accurately
The few have ever seen the true appearance of a
Changling, describe them as odd, beautiful creatures
adorned by nature. They are bound to the earth and love
to live in nature.

History: Changlings are a strange creatures. They are


woven into most any culture, without the knowledge of
the society the meld into.
Personally, they have an odd maturation. Born
in the land of the soulless, changlings cannot survive the
toxicity of the black sun. So, their parents swap them
with a human child until they become adults. They age as
the human does, but when they become adults, their
human counterpart dies and they return home.

Personality: There is something a bit off about the


mentality of a Changling Maybe its the fact that they eat
the first human they ever met, after disguising as them
for years. Maybe its because they leave only people they
have ever known as family, when they come of age.
Maybe its because they shape-shifted one too many times.
usually keep some sort of facial hair as they hate the feeling of being hairless.
They are loyalists, bound to a particular family or person. When they
bind to someone, they serve that person for ever. This pact links both their
future generations and the future generations of the one they serve for
eternity.

skin that leans towards their cat type.
They are aggressive and although they can work in packs it is

Seelie
Seelie is the name given to those creatures of light, honor, and
protection. Races that will stand up against the Unseelie
savages and protect the souls of the pure.
That is why we separated the worlds. Those barbarians
and creatures of chaos were ravaging pure souls for power,
souls that were destined for greatness.
Then, when we are finally making a difference and
humanity is inspired to be good and pure, those fools make a
deal with the devil. Well, not literally, but you get what I mean.
Who makes a deal with a chaos god? I'll tell you who. Fools.
To make things worse, the deal would have been
worthless if not for humans giving in to greed and a lust for
power. They brought the destruction on themselves and that is
where our problem lies.
Some of us, wanted to rush to the aid of humans when

power, and honor.

History: They were the first to demand a split between the Seelie
and Unseelie, after all they had been the adjudicators for
thousands of years and there is only so much chaos and
destruction they could watch.
War after war, they saw the Ankou and others kill,
destroy and devour every human soul they could find. Good
souls, pure souls were consumed by these creatures of darkness
and their thirst for more power. Just be done with it already. Split
the worlds and let the animals rip each other apart.

Personality: As both warriors and nobility, the Phoenix race has a


righteous sense of honor and while some take their values to the
extreme, becoming radical fanatics against evil, most have a level
head. Fighting against evil doesn't mean that you must destroy
any Unseelie you find.
For the most part, Phoenix are honest, kind, with a
strength of spirit that makes them excellent leaders. They are
strong enough in combat to hold their own against a Lunaris, and
wise enough to strategize against an Ankou.

History: Although Undines hold a position in the Seelie court,
they rarely join for meetings They prefer to deal with their own
politics in the sea where they are seldom bothered by the
chaotic Unseelie.
In their world, they are currently dealing with matters
of their own. Their king passed recently and now the five noble
houses are feuding over who is the rightful heir.

Personality: Undines are a logical race, valuing planning,


forethought and reason above emotion. This can make
conversations with them arduous. They are not quick to anger,
but also not peace-loving. If you can give them an intellectual
reason for eradicating an entire city, they would be ready to
fight.
Unfortunately the same could be said arguing the other
perspective This has caused many a lengthy debate. In the end,
whichever side holds the most reason, wins the support of the
Undine.
