Ok so I still don't know the exact differences between seelie and unseelie but I think main among them is that the seelie are more interested in...assimilating humanity? Like gaining control over it. Spring wants to change humanity to be less dangerous to fae, Summer wants to rule over them entirely. The unseelie are like....autumn just doesn't want anything to do with humanity and winter wants humans dead. How does that sound? Factions and subfactions! The Seelie Court The Spring Court The Summer Court The House of Magicians- basically the Seelies greatest peace offering to human magicians who want to work with them. Of course in order to join u gotta consent to a ritual that removes all your blood but like. Think of the maaaaaagic. The Unseelie Court The Autumn Court The Winter Court The City Fae- The Seelie claim them to be Unseelie, the Unseelie pretend they don't exist. They are fae that have adapted to living in human settlements, despite the danger, and some are starting to build up an immunity to iron....but at the same time they are losing their connection to natural magic and instead are now connected to the World Beyond. Shitty Baby Necromancer Fae basically. Unsure if they should go here or with others The Hunters The Lineages- Three ancient families of "monster" hunters who have gone back and forth between despising each other, reluctantly working together, and fucking each other. Have considerable witch blood bc of long familial contact w magic, tho I think usually more of the "special ability" kind. Currently at a reluctantly working together stage bc they wanna keep ahead of the "upstarts". Focus mostly on actual fae, seeing them as more dangerous than "simple" weres or vampires. The Knights- A more modern organization, although they trace their lineage back to all sorts of historical secret societies. Do not hold with any kinda magic, and hunt witches and magicians as well as vampires and weres. Due to their no magic stance they REALLY don't like the Lineages, who they see as witches themselves The Holy Order of the Maiden of Purity- Call your dad you're in a cult The....Others. Need a better name The Goblin Market- A loose collection of witches, magicians, weres, the occasional lesser fae, and even a few vampires. There is a "door" in every city, with its own culture, that all leads one central "bazaar" or such. Maybe its in stonehendge idk. Sorcerers of any kind are banned, and most fae are distrusted, esp greater fae The Street Magicians- Not just magicians, and not really an organized group as much as a collective of different magicians, sorcerers, vampires, ect, that for some reason or another aren't allowed or don't want in to the Goblin Market. Or maybe they just don't know much about it. Mostly shitty punks, mostly get into fights with the Knights God some word for shitty vampires- The closest thing vampires have to a central authority- and safety. Basically operate like a gang/the mafia. Not every vampire is a member, of course, but often once you join them you can't get out.
