The Unseelie Fae Court

The Unseelie Court or Unblessed Court contains the most malicious, malevolent and evil of the faeries, and a number of monsters of horrible appearance and fearsome abilities as well. They comprise the Slaugh, or The Host, the band of the unsanctified dead who fly above the earth, stealing mortals and take great pleasure in harming humans.

Often called the ‘Unblessed Ones,’ the Unseelie are depicted as a dark cloud riding upon the wind from where their unnerving cackles and howls can be heard. Though not necessarily evil, they are far from kind. These unsavory characters tend towards evil and are often malignant. Legends claim that the Unseelie were fallen Seelie, those who could not live up to the strict standards of chivalry of the shining court. They have no method of reproduction, so they enslave mortals whom they think would never be missed and carry them along to become one of them. The Unseelie Court is almost always out to harm, or at least bedevil and trick, humankind.

Unlike the selective, restrictive Seelie Court, the Unseelie Court welcomes anyone and everything with even a drop of ancestral fFae blood. Fae can and do breed with anything, creating odd, mixed creatures. Most species consider the offspring grotesque monsters. The mutant creatures gravitate towards the Unseelie Court, which welcomes them and gives them an environment where peculiar physiology's and abilities are the norm.

The Unseelie Court is a more hospitable place for non-Fae as well. Court nobles eagerly provide patronage for creatures who are extremely strong, dexterous, clever, beautiful, or talented. Obtaining the sponsorship of a court noble is not without its rewards, nor without its dangers. For instance, a gifted bard whose playing impresses a Fae nobleman might be invited to his castle as a guest. Once there, the bard will be feted and asked to play every night -- and never be permitted to leave.

Though the land mirrors that of the Seelie, beautiful and luring, after a millennia of indiscriminate breeding, the physical appearance of the Unseelie Court itself borders on the macabre. Twisted columns, trees forced into unnatural growth by royal gardeners, are scattered haphazardly through the hall. Curtains of shadows hide blood-soaked alcoves. Drawn back for times of celebration, the gaping crevasses reveal uninvited guests captured for the amusement of the court. Riotous blooms of nightshades and blood warts glow red in the evening, providing a maddening light to the misshapen court. The throne of the Unseelie Court is shaped like a great shadow dragon, a creature of midnight and darkness, like the Queen herself.

The Code of the Unseelie Court:

Change Is Good: The Unseelie firmly believe that security is an illusion. They consider chaos to be the ruling force in the universe, and accept that they have to adapt and change to survive.
Glamour Is Free: Glamour is the magick of the Daoine Sidhe. Both the Seelie and Unseelie possess its power. However, the two Courts have differing opinions over its use. The Unseelie believe that to have power and not to use it is near to sin. They use their power for whatever they see fit.
Honor Is A Lie: The Unseelie place no stock in the ideals of honor. Instead, they pursue their own self-interests vigorously. The Unseelie feel as if truth can only be reached through a devotion to self, not a devotion to others.
Passion Before Duty: Passion is considered to be the truest state of being. The Unseelie act without thought on pure instinct and passion.
