    User: Switch Trinity
    Blood Classification: Pureblood
    Type: Ellylon with some Coblynau Blood
    Magical Signature: Ozone of Electrical Charge and Zinnias ( Never forget absent friends )
    Physical appearance: Gender Optional. Slim, androgynous, and usually bearing various ribbons or charms tied to portions of their limbs, with a partial head of shaggy, rough hair.
    When unglamoured, their many limbs can be seen for what they are: articulated, artificial, and replaceable. They casually switch out limbs like other people switch clothes, and their body is... less made by nature and more by their own hands.
    Age: Current body has been in use for about a decade. Well. Most of it. Overall. Well. Older than The Dog.
    Allied with: The Dog
    Rank: Leader of The Dog
    Family: Optional and Half-Forgotten. Most likely think Switch is long-dead. The Dog sometimes counts.
    Occupation: Tinkerer and Hermit, mostly. Embracing the internet age.
    Brief Backstory: Far from the typical Faerie, Switch, from their youth, spent progressively more and more time in the human realm than that of the fae.
    They have made a home under Detroit with The Dog in a Shallowing under the abandoned Detroit Mall, packed full of strange technological bits and baubles to boot.
    User Ophidian
    Blood Classification Pureblood
    Type 1/4 Peri, 1/4th Ellyllon, 1/4th Doppleganger, 1/4th Daoine Sidhe
    Magical Signature smoke and rafflesia
    Physical appearance While glamoured - Varies from time to time, always taking on the appearance of a recently disappeared human. Normally short. A sharp eye might be able to glimpse their skin rippling, occasionally. Unglamoured - Tall, lean, and misshapen, with yellow eyes and red hair, sporting many teeth and a pair of shimmering buglike wings trailing dust. Rippling, pale, amorphous skin that is constantly changing colors.
    Age Indeterminate, but fairly young
    Allied with Father
    Rank None
    Family Father is 1/2 Ellyllon 1/2 Daoine Sidhe, and a prominent but ambitious courtier. Mother is 1/2 Doppleganger and 1/2 Peri, and is Very Scary.
    Occupation Dangerous Miscreant, Courtier's Child
    Brief Backstory Father used Mother to further his ambitions, and now Father uses Ophidian now that Mother is gone.
    User Aish
    Blood Classification Fae
    Type Cait Sidhe
    Magical Signature juniper berries and soot
    Physical appearance 5'1, gold and grey eyes, long grey hair. Their cat form is a long-haired silver tabby.
    Age 35
    Allied with the local Court of Cats
    Rank Cat
    Family Both parents belong to the local Queen's court. Aish has a changeling half-sister, Ari, ~25 years older by their mother who is also part of the King's court.
    Occupation Cat. Takes odd jobs from the local King of Cats
    Brief Backstory Aish left the Queen's court and joined the court of the local King of Cats shortly after turning 20. They live with the rest of the court and spend their time working odd jobs for the king or helping their sister do any jobs that need an extra set of hands.
    User: Duck Newton
    Blood Classification: Changeling
    Type: Tuatha de Danann
    Magical Signature: pulled weeds and dust
    Physical appearance: Short cropped, dyed-blue hair, 5'8.5", so pale as to be almost blue.
    Age: Born 1970
    Allied with: None
    Rank: None
    Family: Tuatha de mother long vanished. Promised to return some day. Goose would rather she didn't. Human father Clint tries his best and is somewhere... probably? It weirds him out that his son ages so slow.
    Occupation: Pickpocket, because writing resumes is hard. Also, he can teleport, so robbing banks is easy (and the tellers aren't paid enough to car).
    Brief Backstory: Has been some kind of activist for thirty years now (most recently, robbing banks for almost altruistic reasons), the recent goblin fruit influx has taken all of his focus

    Awesome: I've added both to the first post, though Switch, I changed the bio to reflect that your character is pureblood fae even if they're a mix of types of fae.

    User: Sorrel Owens
    Blood Classification: Changeling
    Type: Cait Sidhe
    Magical Signature: water mint and isopropyl alcohol
    Physical appearance: Brown skin, black hair, green eyes with slit pupils, 5'11, athletic build. Hidden by illusion and clothes, their skin has a tabby-stripe pattern and a fine layer of fuzz. They keep a beanie over their kitty ears when illusion won't work. Bob tail. Can't shapeshift--they look somewhat like the middle of an animorphs cover all the time.
    Age: Old enough. Looks maybe 30.
    Allied with: none
    Rank: n/a
    Family: Dead or otherwise not worth mentioning.
    Occupation: Assistant medical examiner. They work through the night and handle The Weird Cases. Almost definitely did not get this job through entirely legitimate means.
    Brief Backstory: Tends not to stay in one place very long. They've been in Detroit for a few years now, though. There's been a spike in Weird Cases lately, bodies found with goblin fruit in their systems, and Sorrel wants to know what's going on.

    Everything is going to be fun.

    Also, everyone got an invitation to meet at like 3am at a Denny's. Because that's how all epic quests start, probably.

    Ophidian believes that the dead changeling is the one who received the invitation, though this may not necessarily be the case.

    ugh, the wiki has nothing on it, but there's a huge social taboo among the fae about thanking people. a lot of changelings struggle with it, but purebloods generally don't ever use the words "thank you" unless they're in Very Serious settings

    Ftr, Switch is a bit of a space case and is only just now registering the number of people present.

    @Aish question: what is the nature of geases in this universe? i am aware that they can be placed on people, compelling them to either complete a task or die, but there isn't really any further information on them in the wiki
     
  20. Aish

    Aish RP sub| 18+

    so, geasa can mostly bind people to do tasks or to not do certain things under some punishment, or make it impossible for the person to do that action. more complex ones have a mechanism to tell the binder when the bound person breaks one or comes close to breaking one, but the only person we've seen in canon do that is a firstborn. geasa are strengthened by blood and are part illusion magic, and part blood magic (sometimes, depending on how they're cast), so the daoine sidhe are some of the best at them. but any race with illusion/flower magic or blood magic will have some skill with them. there might be another way of casting them that doesn't involve either blood or illusions, but the Luidaeg hasn't given any explanation about how she does her work when she isn't using blood so that's all I have

    @Ghost Fox, did I miss anything?
