Daoine Sidhe

The divine folk of Old Irish folklore. After the Tuatha Dé Danann were defeated by the Milesians (Gaels), those members who decided to stay in Ireland formed the Daoine Sidhe. They live in hollow mounds, hence the name sidhe which literally means "people of the (fairy) mounds". In Connaught they are ruled by Finbheara, who holds court beneath the fairy hill of Knockma. His wife is the fair Oonagh. In Munster, there are three fairy queens: Cliodna, Aine (said to be the mother of Earl Gerald, who sleeps under the castle of Mullaghmast), and Aoibhill.
The Daoine Sidhe are fond of battles, hurling (a kind of field hockey) and are skilled chess players. Many a mortal challenged Finvarra to a game and lost all his possessions, for the king has never been beaten. These fairies are small and this is responsible for the name of daoine beaga, "little folk". They may ride out to hunt, or stir up an eddy of dust, or engage in battles, or steal children, or prevent butter from forming in the churn.

TALES OF THE DAOINE SIDHE
(pronounced deenie shee - meaning - The Good People)

Folktales of Ireland
Is fearr go mall na go brach (better late than never)
This is a compilation of Irish folktales, originating from oral tradition and retold over the centuries.
Many versions have appeared in print and so the original authors are often lost in a maze of confusion. Some of them are my own version.


A quote on the lonely fate of fairies in our own century:
from "The Old Gods: The facts about Irish Fairies" by Patrick Logan
"Bulldozers now level fairie raths and sweep away fairie trees, and the Good People appear
to be unable to defend and preserve their homes.
No farmer nowadays would allow some of the milk from his milking machine to run off on the
ground as a tribute for the fairies.
Nobody ever applies to the fairies for permission and approval when he wishes to build a house.
Fairie places and fairie passes are no longer treated with respect...........
All this is obvious to anyone who looks around at the Ireland of today."


From"The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries" by Evans Wentz.
quote: I have never seen a man fairy nor a woman fairy, but my mother saw a troop of them. She herself and the other maidens of the townland were once out upon the summer sheiling (grazing). They were milking the cows, in the evening gloaming, when they observed a flock of fairies reeling and setting upon the green plain in front of the knoll. And, oh King! But it was they the fairies themselves that had the right to dancing, and not the children of men! Bell-helmets of green silk covered their heads, and garments of green satin covered their bodies, and sandals of yellow membrane covered their feet. Their heavy fair hair was streaming down their waist, and its lustre was of the fair golden sun of summer. Their skin was as white as the swan of the wave, and their voice was as melodious as the mavis of the wood, and they themselves were as beauteous of feature and as lithe of form as a picture, while their step was as light and stately and their minds as sportive as the little red hind of the hill. The damsel children of the sheiling-fold never saw sight but them, no never sight but them, never aught so beautiful.
There is not a wave of prosperity upon the fairies of the knoll, no, not a wave. There is no growth nor increase, no death nor withering upon the fairies. Seed unfortunate they! They went away from the Paradise with the One of the Great Pride. When the Father commanded the doors closed down and up, the intermediate fairies had no alternative but to leap into the holes of the earth, where they are, and where they will be.
This is what I heard upon the knee of my beloved mother. Blessings be with her ever evermore!...unquote

Daoine Sidhe
Through winding caves and surreal caverns you step, through tiny water-filled cracks and crevices. Sunlight cascades from openings above and reflects off trickling streams, casting luminescent patterns that dance upon the rocky walls. Lush emerald ferns sprout from the ground and multi-colored moss cling tenaciously to their stony homes. You reach an open area with footsteps embedded there, revealing centuries of travel.
You hear distant chatter as you near a cave opening ... stepping through, you find yourself in a magical world like no other ... a land populated with unique people, or fae rather, some of them bathing in the sun, others slipping in and out of the occasional shadow ... Though all look friendly, some appear to be friendlier than others...

Daoine Sidhe
If Humans can breed with Fae, and Humans can breed with Dragons, then it is a logical assumption that Fae can breed with Dragons. This assumption is true, but the practice is not looked upon with favor, as the result is sterile, and by anyone's definition, not altogether sane. The main problem comes in that fact that two races of very singular purpose are crossbreeding. The main driving force in a Dragon is its obsession with collecting things. Seelie, thanks to the actions of Auberon, are driven by the Compact to protect humans from the Unseelie. The Unseelie, thanks to the Adversary, are driven to destroy humanity. These obsessions mix disastrously. Thankfully, these cross-breeds are very rare. Only two Faerie Dragons and four Annwn Drakes have been reported throughout all of history.
Dragon-Seelie Crossbreeds
The Dragon-Seelie cross, also known as a Faerie Dragon, is truly a majestic creature. They look very much like a Daoine Sidhe, averaging seven to eight feet tall, with cat-like dragon eyes gazing startlingly out of their Seelie faces. Faerie Dragons have all the abilities of a Daoine Sidhe, as well as all the draconic powers, memories, and the sorcery skills of their dragon parent. Faerie Dragons are vulnerable to Cold Iron, and can cross into the Faerie Veil just as any other Daoine Sidhe. Anyone viewing a Faerie Dragon will see a kind of inner radiance, caused by the being's inherent physical and magickal power. In fact, Faerie Dragons give off a soft luminance that is enough to read by at night. In the past, they have often been mistaken for Angels or other supernatural beings.
The Seelie cold reserve crossed with the draconic calm detachment has resulted in a creature that feels detached from the rest of the world, feels almost no emotions, and possesses no morals simply because it does not understand the need for them. Their inhumanity makes them seem cruel to humans.
Faerie Dragons are dedicated foes of the Unseelie. Although they dwell in the remotest, loftiest areas away from all other life, they will take a clinical interest in anything that enters their territory. If it is Unseelie, they hunt it mercilessly. If it is human, they take it home. Faerie Dragons feel the compulsion to protect humans from the Unseelie, but they do it by collecting them - by taking humans back to their lair, and suspending them in time. In any Faerie Dragon's lair, you will find a collection of humans from all ages, stored away safely until such time as the world has been rid of Unseelie. Periodically, Faerie Dragons will go out into the world in search of important people that should be "saved." Anyone out alone when a Faerie Dragon is on the prowl may disappear without a trace.
Dragon-Unseelie Crossbreeds
The Dragon-Unseelie cross, also known as an Annwn Drake (prononced Anoon) , is as hellish as a Faerie Dragon is majestic. Their appearance, both in human and dragon forms, is so horribly twisted that they have been mistaken for demons, devils, and other mythical creatures spawned out of nightmares. Annwn Drakes have all the abilities of a Daoine Sidhe, as well as all the draconic powers, memories, and the sorcery skills of their dragon parent. Annwn Drakes are vulnerable to Cold Iron, and can cross into the Faerie Veil just as any other Daoine Sidhe. As Faerie Dragons give off light, Annwn Drakes absorb it. Even full daylight will dim in any area an Annwn Drake is present in.
Annwn Drakes are, even in Unseelie eyes, insane. The conflict between the Unseelie obsession to destroy humanity and burn the earth crossed with the draconic obsession for collections has resulted in something so unstable it is a wonder that it doesn't kill itself. For this reason, Annwn Drakes are even more antisocial than normal dragons. You will never find more than one Annwn Drake in any given area, not even at the command of the Adversary or during a Wild Hunt. If an Annwn Drake ever encounters another, the two will fight until nothing but bloody scraps are left.
Annwn Drakes are dedicated foes of the Seelie. While Faerie Dragons dwell in remote, lofty areas; Annwn Drakes dwell in remote caverns in the depths of the Earth, often deep within the calderas of active volcanoes. At least once every five hundred years, an Annwn Drake will leave its lair to hunt and terrorize. If it finds a Seelie, it hunts it mercilessly. If it is human, well, pity any human that falls into the clutches of an Annwn Drake. In the lair of an Annwn Drake, and along its flight path home from its hunting grounds, you will find pieces of its prey. Driven by the conflicting desires to destroy and collect, anything caught by an Annwn Drake is usually slowly nibbled to death, as the Annwn Drake eats a bite here, tears off a limb there, all the while saving the rest, so as to fulfill both desires.
When not out hunting, an Annwn Drake squats in its lair like a bloated spider, snarling and snapping at shadows, driven to destroy so much that it is filled with hatred and loathing for itself, but unable to kill itself (or finish eating anything it has collected) because of its obsession for preserving things. Even the Adversary is wary about approaching such creatures in the dark labyrinths of their lairs.

Daoine Sidhe - Ireland.

The Daoine Sidhe (pronounced Theena Shee) are the remnants of the Tuatha de Danaan (Tootha day danan) elves, or high faery people. Once they were gigantic in stature, but Christianity came along and diminished them in the stories in both importance and stature.
A Sidhe or Faery hill is called a "rath".
The Sidhe king, Finvarra, and queen, Oonagh, hold court under the faery hill of Knockma.
The Daoine Sidhe enjoy fighting and chess. They also enjoy "hurling". Sometimes, as in human matches, the excitement would get out of hand. This happened, for instance, in the hurling match between the faery folk of Munster and the home team of Connaught. When the Connaught team was winning, the Munster team changed to flying beetles and started devouring everything green in sight. The Connaught team came back by opening a hole in the ground from which came thousands of doves, which began to devour the marauding beetles.

Rhys, who looks like a bodybuilding priviate detective on the high seas, can quote from film noir and kill with a touch when he isn't defrizzing his waist length fall of white curls. But who is he really?

The direct translation of Cromm Crúaich is 'bent one of the mound'. It's thought to originate from the damage to idol where the top half was severed and pushed forward onto its face. Alternatively, the idol is Cenn Crúaich, 'head of the mound' or 'chief of the mound'.

A solar deity, his defeat was attributed to St Patrick in a dindshenchas (a type of poem used to tell a story about the origins of the names of places) found in the Book of Leinster, of Ballymote and of Lecan. In the poem, Cenn Crúaich received sacrifices of children and animal firstlings on the eve of samhain. St Patrick came across an idol of Cenn Crúaich, which bowed down before him before the earth opened up and swallowed it. No trace, however, has yet been discovered in the writings of Saint Patrick of any being remotely like Cenn Crúaich.

Cenn Crúaich was said to have been introduced to Ireland by Tiernmas (also spelled Tigernmas), the fifth Milesian king after Eremon. He's also credited with being the first to mine and smelt gold in Ireland, and his people were the first humans to discover the process of dying clothes; previously it seems only the the Tuatha Dé Danann knew how to dye clothes. This king and three-quarters of his people were said to have been killed while worshipping Cenn Crúaich on samhain.

Of course, if a Milesian king introduced the worship of Crenn Crúaich then the god was established after the Tuatha Dé Danann had retreated to their sithen. That doesn't fit with Rhys fighting the Formorians alongside the rest of the sidhe. A dindshenchas of Mag Slecht (the Plain of Adoration, where the sacrifices to idol took place) contains this line: 'Until Patricks (sic) advent he was the god of every folk that colonized Ireland.' This strongly suggests that here is an idol that predates the Mileasians. And if 'every' is taken literally, Crenn Crúaich might also predate the Tuatha Dé Danann, Firbolg, and Formorians.

Pantheon Pandemonium
Taranis isn't sidhe.

Stop laughing, I'm serious.

Where do I get off saying that sort of thing? Easy. Taranis wasn't one of the Tuatha Dé Dannan and he was still being worshipped as a god in Celtic Gaul some eight hundred years after the De Dannan were driven into their sithen by the invading Milesians.

The Roman poet Lucan notes in his poem Pharsalia: "...and those Gauls who propitiate with human sacrifices the merciless gods Teutas, Esus and Taranis - at whose altars the visitor shudders because they are as awe-inspiring as those of the Scythian Diana."

The three 'merciless gods' must have been a fun bunch to worship. Taranis liked his sacrificial victims immolated in a wicker cage. Esus was partial to blood-sacrifice and hanging. Teutates preferred his offerings drowned in a sacrificial lake.

Taranis, whose name is rooted in the Indo-European 'taran' or thunder, was associated with Jupiter by the Romans. He was symbolized by a solar wheel, lightening bolts, and fire. Esus (with one 's'), whose name means lord or master, was identified as Mars. For some reason he was depicted with three birds and a bull. Teutates, whose name can be rendered as 'god of the people' or 'protector-father', was identified with Mercury and Mars. He was seen as the god of war, wealth and fertility. Teutates was noted by Lucan and Julius Caesar as being the most revered of the three.

As a quick aside, Esus' consort was Rosmerta, who was a goddess of fertility and abundance. Perhaps with all the sacrifices, the Gaulish tribes felt they needed all the fertility deities they could get. As an aside to an aside, Rosmerta is also the name of the Irish (read: De Dannan) Lugh's wife in later traditions.

In the Merryverse, the noble fae or sidhe represent a distinct race. Recall that 'sidhe' is Irish Gaelic so it, like Seelie and Unseelie, is a term coined by humans and adopted by fae. It may very well be that the fae's native name for themselves doesn't translate to English or renders simply to a common self-naming such as 'the people'. In folklore, fae tended to be secretive about their true names and in Merry's world many fae have names that are likely second or third aliases (Rhys, Doyle, Nicca, Kitto, Barinthus, and Hedwick are easy examples). It's not too much a stretch to consider that the noble fae have not devulged their race-name for magical reasons.

I'd venture that the Tuatha De Dannan represent an ethnic grouping and while Taranis and his Gaulish cohorts were not 'people of the goddess Danu' they belong to the same racial type. One could theorize that the Tuatha De Dannan were a first wave migration from the Near East followed by the Gaulish group. One could go even further and theorize that both waves were seeking to escape the western migration of the pre-Celtic tribes. The Gaulish fae managed to get themselves worshipped by the Gaullish Celts so it's not too surprising they held out longer above ground than the De Dannan.

The following are couple short lists of French and Irish gods and goddesses for reference.

French (Gaul)

Abnoba - goddess of the hunt; similar to the Roman goddess Diana.

Seelie, Sidhe, Silly
Seelie : holy, blessed. From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "The Court of the kind and benign fairy host, usually seen around twilight in long solemn processions. These fairies help the poor with gifts of corn and bread."

Sidhe : people of the (fairy) hills. From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "Sidhe (pronounced 'shee') literally means "people of the (fairy) hills". It is the Gaelic name for the fairies in both Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland. Usually these fairies are attracted to those who are beautiful as well as wealthy." More specifically, Daoine Sidhe: "The divine folk of Old Irish folklore. After the Tuatha Dé Dannan were defeated by the Milesians (Gaels), those members who decided to stay in Ireland formed the Daoine Sidhe. They live in hollow mounds, hence the name sidhe which literally means "people of the (fairy) mounds".

Unseelie : unholy, damned. From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "The evil counterpart of the Seelie Court is always unfavorable towards mankind. The part which flies through the sky at night is called the 'Horde'. Mortals unfortunate enough to cross the Horde's path are taken along for a hell-ride. These poor victims are beaten and pinched and forced to participate in the bizarre nocturnal activities of these creatures. The Unseelie Court ("Unholy Court" solely consists of those of the fairy-like beings which are the most ugly and evil."

Unsidhe : a somewhat nonsensical modern construct attributed to erroneous Japanese anime interpretations of United Kingdom folklore. Literally, it would denote people not of the (fairy) hills (i.e. Joe Mortal).

Far-Flung Fae?
Among the Kurdish Yezidi, the evil spirit known as Rashe Shebbe or Shevve sometimes substitutes a human infant for a demon child in the first seven days of life.

Ahuras and daevas are the supernatural beings of Persian Magianism and the successor religion Zoroastrianism. Both names derive from the word devata, meaning, as in the case of the ahuras, the 'Shining Ones'.

Archaelogical investigations of Catal Huyuk, a double-mound of earth in Turkey, have uncovered no less than thirteen layers of occupation dating back to 6,500 BCE.

Approx 1,200 BCE : a race of underground smiths called the Cabiri were named the first metalworkers by the Greeks. Also called fire genii, the Cabiri came from Cappadocia, an area known for its basalt rock cones that reach over a hundred feet in height and its underground communities that could house an estimated 100,000 - 200,000 people. The subterranean communties Cappadocia have been dated to approximately 9,500 to 9,000 BCE.

Le Goblin
King Kurag, the Goblin King, speaks French. And if he doesn't speak French, he should.

Now why would anyone suggest that his highness speaks French? Doesn't he have enough going for him with the all over body warts, those sparkling three eyes, and that sentient parasitic twin?

Mai oui. But Kurag is a goblin and goblins are French by origin. French humans are passionately dedicated to preserving their language and culture; there's no good reason to assume French fey wouldn't have the same attitudes. Fey are not exactly known as progressive, avant-garde group.

The word goblin is borrowed from Norman French, itself a derivation of Old Northern French, dating back to the 10th century. Norman French was brought to English shores during the Norman Conquest of 1066 AD. Given the opportunistic nature of goblins, it's likely both word and creature landed when the Normans did. Norman French, called Anglo-Norman in England, was the language of court and privilege until the 13th century.

There's other details that might be hints: Kurag's skin is yellowed, a symptom of a life-long smoker. As anyone who's been to France will attest, they are a nation dedicated to their cigarettes. There is a low level animosity between goblin and sidhe, despite their alliances, that certainly echos the difficulties between French and English humans. The goblin standard of beauty strikes outsiders as bizarre and ugly. French high fashion affects many in much the same way.

Have Kurag and his goblins retained anything of their Normandy origins? No-one really knows. But perhaps the bones scattered in the goblin mound are frogs' legs and the rotting meat is pheasant, aging to perfection.

Flattened Vowels and Glottal Stops
"Made me nervous because many of the sidhe pride themselves on retaining their original accents." - Merry, KoS pg 100.

"Then I heard another man's voice, a smooth masculine voice, with just a touch of accent. I knew the voice." - Merry, KoS pg 121.

"He [Bucca-Dhu] spoke in clear thought accented English." - Merry, CoT 298.
Just what did Merry hear when she heard that touch of accent? She's American, born and raised. Her formative language learning years were spent in the public school system. She would hear a native American English speaker as accentless. Everyone else would sound accented.

The person who was referred to in the second quotation was Sholto, King of the Sluagh. He's Scottish and he was raised amid people speaking Scottish Gaelic . English would then be his second language, and he would speak with an accent. Gaelic, you ask? Where did that come from?

The sluagh (sloo-ah, lit. 'spirit multitude') are a group of fey that came out of the Highlands of Scotland. History isn't clear on how old the tradition of the sluagh is but it does go back to pre-Christian times. Perhaps those sluagh that were around to watch the Romans build their settlements spoke Brythonic Celtic. It is even possible that the language of the sluagh is a form of Pictish. The Picts themselves lost their much of their hold on the Highlands in the mid-8th century but the geography and dating fit. Gaelic was brought to Scotland through successive waves of migration from Ireland beginning roughly in the 6th century. By the 11th century, Gaelic was the lingua franca of Scotland.

So what do the rest of the court sound like to Merry? It depends. The Seelie and Unseelie Courts are both Scottish by tradition but the sidhe of the courts come from a variety of locals. Andais swears by the Irish goddess Danu, for example. Nicca is from Cornwall, as is Kitto. Others, such as Taranis (formerly a Gaulic god) came over from the continent. Court probably sounds like a European house party to Merry as they're all speaking accented English when she's around. After all, it's rude to use a language that the other person doesn't know and Merry would have to do a lot of catching up to be able to speak all the languages of Faerie.

Sidhe versus Elf
If one were unfortunate enough to be both sidhe-struck and elf-struck, then one would have had amazing, mind-bending sex with two different types of supernatural being. Lucky duck, I'd say. Are the terms sidhe and elf referring to two categories of fey? In a word, yes. But we'd have to go further afield than the Merriam-Webster dictionary to find this out.

To quote Encyclopaedia Mythica, "Sidhe (shee; also sidh, si, and sith) literally means "people of the (fairy) hills". It's the Gaelic name for the fairies in both Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland."

The stately, aristocratic daoine sidhe (theena shee) have an Irish pedigree. In Scotland, sidhe ran from pretty, sometimes winged, humanoids (if they were good or at least not actively evil) to ugly and monstrous horrors. Irish sidhe have the particularity of being a diminished people: the remnants of the Tuatha Dé Dannan (thoo'a-haw day dah'-nawn, lit. people of Danu), a magical race that came from the west, who were driven underground by the Milesians, invaders under the command of the eight sons of the Spanish Celtic king Milesius. A 16th century scholar named O'Flaherty placed the Milesian invasion at about 1000 BC, which just happens to fall in line with the start of the Iron Age of human history. The daoine sidhe continued to maintain separate, often warring, kingdoms among themselves. It's interesting to note that the intense dislike fey had for iron was attributed to the daoine sidhe (who may have had good historical reason for fearing the metal that defeated their bronze weapons) and the smaller butterfly-like faries (the demi-fey in the Merryverse). More forbidding fey such as the sluagh and goblins were originally indifferent to the metal. As Christianity fused with older beliefs, an iron cross became doubly potent as a ward against witches and fey alike.

Elves or Alfar (lit. 'shining white one') are a long-established in Nordic and Teutonic mythology as beings created (or arising, depending on source) not long after the gods. They are divided into three races: Light (Ljosalfar), Dark (Dokkalfar), and Black (Svartalfar). Black elves became known as dwarves in Germanic regions. Elves were characterized by their magical knowledge and wisdom: even Odin learned a thing or two from the Dark elves. The names Light and Dark referred to the dwellings of the elves in question: the former were found in attendance to the god Freyr in Alfheim. The latter were found in mounds, hillocks, and rocks. Both types appeared as exceptionally beautiful to humans. Black elves, or dwarves, had the least auspicious origins: they were created out of the maggots that crawled out of the giant Ymir's corpse. Not a good-looking race, misshapen, and generally ugly, their skill at smithing was unmatched. None of the Nordic or Teutonic elves of any race feared iron. Their society passed into mythology more or less intact without the change from clans to medieval courts as was seen with the daoine sidhe. Elves, like the Nordic gods and heroes, were fatalistic and serious peoples. They spent their days counting down to the end of the world (Ragnarok or Gotterdammerung) pursuing magical knowledge, developing their skills at crafts, and occasionally helping the odd mortal.
Canadain DS Member Since 2005 -Isn't going to read all of that-
To be really honest, most of that don't really seem to be relevant.. At least I doesen't see the relevancy of names, and some sorta history about goblins to be relevant to what Daoine Sidhe means.
this is what i look up under Daoine Sidhe name on seach engine.
I'm not to sure either but I let the Big Bosses write it.
Canadain DS Member Since 2005 Award: Longest Topic Post Ever! Congrats! lol
Canadain DS Member Since 2005 you think, some1 reads it all... Not even trying to read it all

Well we've been through much of that before. Except for the direct name explanation of Daoine Sidhe, and the gaelic/celtic heritage we use as background, there's not much we really use from stories and myths. There's history to be read in the library in the History of Erin. Which is really the best place for DS background, though it's quite a bit to read.

Everything is possible, the impossible just takes longer.

Former King of Daoine Sidhe.

http://www.rambutra.net TLDR(Too long Didnt Read) /me agrees with Thac0-DS

- Sylph-DS
Formerly known as Xvon-DS

Also, Failbread. I'm not a religious person, but Jesus Christ! Great Job Coolsite.
There is lots of info behind, what people think is only just a name.

I found my info on lots of sites and on "Encyclopaedia Mythica".

Its nice to see that you want to know more, not everybody think this way, as you see.

Perhaps there will be a piece of your history found in our library, which would be very cool.

My English is so bad that my story never shall be placed there, hope I can read yours, I look forward to that.


Ayalla if u want type it in your language then after get help from someone to translated to english so we could have both languages.
Canadain DS Member Since 2005 Well, this text you posted here, was 6861 words, thats a lot to translate

- Sylph-DS
Formerly known as Xvon-DS

Also, Failbread. one of the things i found out if u translate "Daoine Sidhe" there will be something coming out like "People of the Mountains".
Since thats something that wont match our history and stuff since rayendir told me a lot about DS when i joined like 4 years ago orso
Even my old name came out of the books i believe.
Leanan seems to be in the myth or whatever it was aswell..
To take over the kings place and stuff i don't know exactly.
But thats what i got in short lines..
Futher if you go and look on the celtic myths sites you get a lot of the things about people of the mountains and stuff... pretty cool tho
Just to bad the real true meaning why we use it cant be found elsewhere online except here (as far as i know).
Maybe someday in the future if i am pretty long in DS and everything is going fine i make my own site about this clan with the info and stuff
Easy to let the recruits which will join then read it and answer some questions about it to know if they did read it or not cause it will be important.
Since i gonna put a lot of the diablo 2 division on it then aswell including rules and our new structure where we are working at

Btw i didnt read the whole stuff to much to read it probably takes me an hour and i dont have that long

May The Light Shine Upon You,

Cytheria Leanan Sidhe of Dawn

[19:34:34:0.75716000] BEFORE: Daoine Sidhe The divine folk of Old Irish folklore. After the Tuatha Dé Danann were defeated by the Milesians (Gaels), those members who decided to stay in Ireland formed the Daoine Sidhe. They live in hollow mounds, hence the name sidhe which literally means "people of the (fairy) mounds". In Connaught they are ruled by Finbheara, who holds court beneath the fairy hill of Knockma. His wife is the fair Oonagh. In Munster, there are three fairy queens: Cliodna, Aine (said to be the mother of Earl Gerald, who sleeps under the castle of Mullaghmast), and Aoibhill. The Daoine Sidhe are fond of battles, hurling (a kind of field hockey) and are skilled chess players. Many a mortal challenged Finvarra to a game and lost all his possessions, for the king has never been beaten. These fairies are small and this is responsible for the name of daoine beaga, "little folk". They may ride out to hunt, or stir up an eddy of dust, or engage in battles, or steal children, or prevent butter from forming in the churn. TALES OF THE DAOINE SIDHE (pronounced deenie shee - meaning - The Good People) Folktales of Ireland Is fearr go mall na go brach (better late than never) This is a compilation of Irish folktales, originating from oral tradition and retold over the centuries. Many versions have appeared in print and so the original authors are often lost in a maze of confusion. Some of them are my own version. A quote on the lonely fate of fairies in our own century: from "The Old Gods: The facts about Irish Fairies" by Patrick Logan "Bulldozers now level fairie raths and sweep away fairie trees, and the Good People appear to be unable to defend and preserve their homes. No farmer nowadays would allow some of the milk from his milking machine to run off on the ground as a tribute for the fairies. Nobody ever applies to the fairies for permission and approval when he wishes to build a house. Fairie places and fairie passes are no longer treated with respect........... All this is obvious to anyone who looks around at the Ireland of today." From"The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries" by Evans Wentz. quote: I have never seen a man fairy nor a woman fairy, but my mother saw a troop of them. She herself and the other maidens of the townland were once out upon the summer sheiling (grazing). They were milking the cows, in the evening gloaming, when they observed a flock of fairies reeling and setting upon the green plain in front of the knoll. And, oh King! But it was they the fairies themselves that had the right to dancing, and not the children of men! Bell-helmets of green silk covered their heads, and garments of green satin covered their bodies, and sandals of yellow membrane covered their feet. Their heavy fair hair was streaming down their waist, and its lustre was of the fair golden sun of summer. Their skin was as white as the swan of the wave, and their voice was as melodious as the mavis of the wood, and they themselves were as beauteous of feature and as lithe of form as a picture, while their step was as light and stately and their minds as sportive as the little red hind of the hill. The damsel children of the sheiling-fold never saw sight but them, no never sight but them, never aught so beautiful. There is not a wave of prosperity upon the fairies of the knoll, no, not a wave. There is no growth nor increase, no death nor withering upon the fairies. Seed unfortunate they! They went away from the Paradise with the One of the Great Pride. When the Father commanded the doors closed down and up, the intermediate fairies had no alternative but to leap into the holes of the earth, where they are, and where they will be. This is what I heard upon the knee of my beloved mother.

Daoine Sidhe The great god of healing and the physician of the Tuatha Dé Danann. He made the silver hand for his brother king Nuada to Daoine Sidhe The divine folk of Old Irish folklore. After the Tuatha Dé Danann were defeated by the Milesians (Gaels), those members who decided to stay in Ireland formed the Daoine Sidhe. They live in hollow mounds, hence the name sidhe which literally means "people of the (fairy) mounds". In Connaught they are ruled by Finbheara, who holds court beneath the fairy hill of Knockma. His wife is the fair Oonagh. In Munster, there are three fairy queens: Cliodna, Aine (said to be the mother of Earl Gerald, who sleeps under the castle of Mullaghmast), and Aoibhill. The Daoine Sidhe are fond of battles, hurling (a kind of field hockey) and are skilled chess players. Many a mortal challenged Finvarra to a game and lost all his possessions, for the king has never been beaten. These fairies are small and this is responsible for the name of daoine beaga, "little folk". They may ride out to hunt, or stir up an eddy of dust, or engage in battles, or steal children, or prevent butter from forming in the churn.

Daoine Sidhe If Humans can breed with Fae, and Humans can breed with Dragons, then it is a logical assumption that Fae can breed with Dragons. This assumption is true, but the practice is not looked upon with favor, as the result is sterile, and by anyone's definition, not altogether sane. The main problem comes in that fact that two races of very singular purpose are crossbreeding. The main driving force in a Dragon is its obsession with collecting things. Seelie, thanks to the actions of Auberon, are driven by the Compact to protect humans from the Unseelie. The Unseelie, thanks to the Adversary, are driven to destroy humanity. These obsessions mix disastrously. Thankfully, these cross-breeds are very rare. Only two Faerie Dragons and four Annwn Drakes have been reported throughout all of history. Dragon-Seelie Crossbreeds The Dragon-Seelie cross, also known as a Faerie Dragon, is truly a majestic creature. They look very much like a Daoine Sidhe, averaging seven to eight feet tall, with cat-like dragon eyes gazing startlingly out of their Seelie faces. Faerie Dragons have all the abilities of a Daoine Sidhe, as well as all the draconic powers, memories, and the sorcery skills of their dragon parent. Faerie Dragons are vulnerable to Cold Iron, and can cross into the Faerie Veil just as any other Daoine Sidhe. Anyone viewing a Faerie Dragon will see a kind of inner radiance, caused by the being's inherent physical and magickal power. In fact, Faerie Dragons give off a soft luminance that is enough to read by at night. In the past, they have often been mistaken for Angels or other supernatural beings. The Seelie cold reserve crossed with the draconic calm detachment has resulted in a creature that feels detached from the rest of the world, feels almost no emotions, and possesses no morals simply because it does not understand the need for them. Their inhumanity makes them seem cruel to humans. Faerie Dragons are dedicated foes of the Unseelie. Although they dwell in the remotest, loftiest areas away from all other life, they will take a clinical interest in anything that enters their territory. If it is Unseelie, they hunt it mercilessly. If it is human, they take it home. Faerie Dragons feel the compulsion to protect humans from the Unseelie, but they do it by collecting them - by taking humans back to their lair, and suspending them in time. In any Faerie Dragon's lair, you will find a collection of humans from all ages, stored away safely until such time as the world has been rid of Unseelie. Periodically, Faerie Dragons will go out into the world in search of important people that should be "saved." Anyone out alone when a Faerie Dragon is on the prowl may disappear without a trace. Dragon-Unseelie Crossbreeds The Dragon-Unseelie cross, also known as an Annwn Drake (prononced Anoon) , is as hellish as a Faerie Dragon is majestic. Their appearance, both in human and dragon forms, is so horribly twisted that they have been mistaken for demons, devils, and other mythical creatures spawned out of nightmares. Annwn Drakes have all the abilities of a Daoine Sidhe, as well as all the draconic powers, memories, and the sorcery skills of their dragon parent. Annwn Drakes are vulnerable to Cold Iron, and can cross into the Faerie Veil just as any other Daoine Sidhe. As Faerie Dragons give off light, Annwn Drakes absorb it. Even full daylight will dim in any area an Annwn Drake is present in. Annwn Drakes are, even in Unseelie eyes, insane. The conflict between the Unseelie obsession to destroy humanity and burn the earth crossed with the draconic obsession for collections has resulted in something so unstable it is a wonder that it doesn't kill itself. For this reason, Annwn Drakes are even more antisocial than normal dragons. You will never find more than one Annwn Drake in any given area, not even at the command of the Adversary or during a Wild Hunt. If an Annwn Drake ever encounters another, the two will fight until nothing but bloody scraps are left. Annwn Drakes are dedicated foes of the Seelie. While Faerie Dragons dwell in remote, lofty areas; Annwn Drakes dwell in remote caverns in the depths of the Earth, often deep within the calderas of active volcanoes. At least once every five hundred years, an Annwn Drake will leave its lair to hunt and terrorize. If it finds a Seelie, it hunts it mercilessly. If it is human, well, pity any human that falls into the clutches of an Annwn Drake. In the lair of an Annwn Drake, and along its flight path home from its hunting grounds, you will find pieces of its prey. Driven by the conflicting desires to destroy and collect, anything caught by an Annwn Drake is usually slowly nibbled to death, as the Annwn Drake eats a bite here, tears off a limb there, all the while saving the rest, so as to fulfill both desires. When not out hunting, an Annwn Drake squats in its lair like a bloated spider, snarling and snapping at shadows, driven to destroy so much that it is filled with hatred and loathing for itself, but unable to kill itself (or finish eating anything it has collected) because of its obsession for preserving things. Even the Adversary is wary about approaching such creatures in the dark labyrinths of their lairs. Daoine Sidhe - Ireland. The Daoine Sidhe (pronounced Theena Shee) are the remnants of the Tuatha de Danaan (Tootha day danan) elves, or high faery people. Once they were gigantic in stature, but Christianity came along and diminished them in the stories in both importance and stature. A Sidhe or Faery hill is called a "rath". The Sidhe king, Finvarra, and queen, Oonagh, hold court under the faery hill of Knockma. The Daoine Sidhe enjoy fighting and chess. They also enjoy "hurling". Sometimes, as in human matches, the excitement would get out of hand. This happened, for instance, in the hurling match between the faery folk of Munster and the home team of Connaught. When the Connaught team was winning, the Munster team changed to flying beetles and started devouring everything green in sight. The Connaught team came back by opening a hole in the ground from which came thousands of doves, which began to devour the marauding beetles. Rhys, who looks like a bodybuilding priviate detective on the high seas, can quote from film noir and kill with a touch when he isn't defrizzing his waist length fall of white curls. But who is he really? The direct translation of Cromm Crúaich is 'bent one of the mound'. It's thought to originate from the damage to idol where the top half was severed and pushed forward onto its face. Alternatively, the idol is Cenn Crúaich, 'head of the mound' or 'chief of the mound'. A solar deity, his defeat was attributed to St Patrick in a dindshenchas (a type of poem used to tell a story about the origins of the names of places) found in the Book of Leinster, of Ballymote and of Lecan. In the poem, Cenn Crúaich received sacrifices of children and animal firstlings on the eve of samhain. St Patrick came across an idol of Cenn Crúaich, which bowed down before him before the earth opened up and swallowed it. No trace, however, has yet been discovered in the writings of Saint Patrick of any being remotely like Cenn Crúaich. Cenn Crúaich was said to have been introduced to Ireland by Tiernmas (also spelled Tigernmas), the fifth Milesian king after Eremon. He's also credited with being the first to mine and smelt gold in Ireland, and his people were the first humans to discover the process of dying clothes; previously it seems only the the Tuatha Dé Danann knew how to dye clothes. This king and three-quarters of his people were said to have been killed while worshipping Cenn Crúaich on samhain. Of course, if a Milesian king introduced the worship of Crenn Crúaich then the god was established after the Tuatha Dé Danann had retreated to their sithen. That doesn't fit with Rhys fighting the Formorians alongside the rest of the sidhe. A dindshenchas of Mag Slecht (the Plain of Adoration, where the sacrifices to idol took place) contains this line: 'Until Patricks (sic) advent he was the god of every folk that colonized Ireland.' This strongly suggests that here is an idol that predates the Mileasians. And if 'every' is taken literally, Crenn Crúaich might also predate the Tuatha Dé Danann, Firbolg, and Formorians. Apr 30/05 --- Pantheon Pandemonium Taranis isn't sidhe. Stop laughing, I'm serious. Where do I get off saying that sort of thing? Easy. Taranis wasn't one of the Tuatha Dé Dannan and he was still being worshipped as a god in Celtic Gaul some eight hundred years after the De Dannan were driven into their sithen by the invading Milesians. The Roman poet Lucan notes in his poem Pharsalia: "...and those Gauls who propitiate with human sacrifices the merciless gods Teutas, Esus and Taranis - at whose altars the visitor shudders because they are as awe-inspiring as those of the Scythian Diana." The three 'merciless gods' must have been a fun bunch to worship. Taranis liked his sacrificial victims immolated in a wicker cage. Esus was partial to blood-sacrifice and hanging. Teutates preferred his offerings drowned in a sacrificial lake. Taranis, whose name is rooted in the Indo-European 'taran' or thunder, was associated with Jupiter by the Romans. He was symbolized by a solar wheel, lightening bolts, and fire. Esus (with one 's'), whose name means lord or master, was identified as Mars. For some reason he was depicted with three birds and a bull. Teutates, whose name can be rendered as 'god of the people' or 'protector-father', was identified with Mercury and Mars. He was seen as the god of war, wealth and fertility. Teutates was noted by Lucan and Julius Caesar as being the most revered of the three. As a quick aside, Esus' consort was Rosmerta, who was a goddess of fertility and abundance. Perhaps with all the sacrifices, the Gaulish tribes felt they needed all the fertility deities they could get. As an aside to an aside, Rosmerta is also the name of the Irish (read: De Dannan) Lugh's wife in later traditions. In the Merryverse, the noble fae or sidhe represent a distinct race. Recall that 'sidhe' is Irish Gaelic so it, like Seelie and Unseelie, is a term coined by humans and adopted by fae. It may very well be that the fae's native name for themselves doesn't translate to English or renders simply to a common self-naming such as 'the people'. In folklore, fae tended to be secretive about their true names and in Merry's world many fae have names that are likely second or third aliases (Rhys, Doyle, Nicca, Kitto, Barinthus, and Hedwick are easy examples). It's not too much a stretch to consider that the noble fae have not devulged their race-name for magical reasons. I'd venture that the Tuatha De Dannan represent an ethnic grouping and while Taranis and his Gaulish cohorts were not 'people of the goddess Danu' they belong to the same racial type. One could theorize that the Tuatha De Dannan were a first wave migration from the Near East followed by the Gaulish group. One could go even further and theorize that both waves were seeking to escape the western migration of the pre-Celtic tribes. The Gaulish fae managed to get themselves worshipped by the Gaullish Celts so it's not too surprising they held out longer above ground than the De Dannan. The following are couple short lists of French and Irish gods and goddesses for reference. French (Gaul) Abnoba - goddess of the hunt; similar to the Roman goddess Diana. Andraste - goddess of victory. Belenus - god of light; his name means 'shining one' (see Lugh). Borvo - god of healing; his name is associated with springs.

Sucellus - god of agriculture and forests; also a hammer god; his name means 'good striker'. Taranis - god of rain and thunder; equated to the Roman god Jupiter. Teutates - god of war; equated the Roman gods Mercury and Mars. Irish (Tuatha De Dannan) Aine - goddess of love. Banbha - one of the trio of goddesses who lent their name to Ireland. Boann - goddess of water and fertility; bore Oenghus to the Daghda. Brigit (Brighid) - goddess of fertility, healing, and poetry. Cian - the father of Lugh.

Nechtan - water-god whose sacred well was a source of knowledge. Néit - god of war; husband of Nemhain Nemhain - goddess of war and battle. Nuada - one of the kings of the Tuatha De Danaan.

From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "The Court of the kind and benign fairy host, usually seen around twilight in long solemn processions. These fairies help the poor with gifts of corn and bread." Sidhe : people of the (fairy) hills. From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "Sidhe (pronounced 'shee') literally means "people of the (fairy) hills". It is the Gaelic name for the fairies in both Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland. Usually these fairies are attracted to those who are beautiful as well as wealthy." More specifically, Daoine Sidhe: "The divine folk of Old Irish folklore. After the Tuatha Dé Dannan were defeated by the Milesians (Gaels), those members who decided to stay in Ireland formed the Daoine Sidhe. They live in hollow mounds, hence the name sidhe which literally means "people of the (fairy) mounds". Unseelie : unholy, damned. From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "The evil counterpart of the Seelie Court is always unfavorable towards mankind. The part which flies through the sky at night is called the 'Horde'. Mortals unfortunate enough to cross the Horde's path are taken along for a hell-ride. These poor victims are beaten and pinched and forced to participate in the bizarre nocturnal activities of these creatures. The Unseelie Court ("Unholy Court" solely consists of those of the fairy-like beings which are the most ugly and evil." Unsidhe : a somewhat nonsensical modern construct attributed to erroneous Japanese anime interpretations of United Kingdom folklore. Literally, it would denote people not of the (fairy) hills (i.e. Joe Mortal).

Among the Kurdish Yezidi, the evil spirit known as Rashe Shebbe or Shevve sometimes substitutes a human infant for a demon child in the first seven days of life. Ahuras and daevas are the supernatural beings of Persian Magianism and the successor religion Zoroastrianism. Both names derive from the word devata, meaning, as in the case of the ahuras, the 'Shining Ones'. Archaelogical investigations of Catal Huyuk, a double-mound of earth in Turkey, have uncovered no less than thirteen layers of occupation dating back to 6,500 BCE. Approx 1,200 BCE : a race of underground smiths called the Cabiri were named the first metalworkers by the Greeks. Also called fire genii, the Cabiri came from Cappadocia, an area known for its basalt rock cones that reach over a hundred feet in height and its underground communities that could house an estimated 100,000 - 200,000 people. The subterranean communties Cappadocia have been dated to approximately 9,500 to 9,000 BCE. Nov 13/02 --- Le Goblin King Kurag, the Goblin King, speaks French. And if he doesn't speak French, he should. Now why would anyone suggest that his highness speaks French? Doesn't he have enough going for him with the all over body warts, those sparkling three eyes, and that sentient parasitic twin? Mai oui. But Kurag is a goblin and goblins are French by origin. French humans are passionately dedicated to preserving their language and culture; there's no good reason to assume French fey wouldn't have the same attitudes. Fey are not exactly known as progressive, avant-garde group. The word goblin is borrowed from Norman French, itself a derivation of Old Northern French, dating back to the 10th century. Norman French was brought to English shores during the Norman Conquest of 1066 AD. Given the opportunistic nature of goblins, it's likely both word and creature landed when the Normans did. Norman French, called Anglo-Norman in England, was the language of court and privilege until the 13th century. There's other details that might be hints: Kurag's skin is yellowed, a symptom of a life-long smoker. As anyone who's been to France will attest, they are a nation dedicated to their cigarettes. There is a low level animosity between goblin and sidhe, despite their alliances, that certainly echos the difficulties between French and English humans. The goblin standard of beauty strikes outsiders as bizarre and ugly. French high fashion affects many in much the same way. Have Kurag and his goblins retained anything of their Normandy origins? No-one really knows. But perhaps the bones scattered in the goblin mound are frogs' legs and the rotting meat is pheasant, aging to perfection. --- Flattened Vowels and Glottal Stops "Made me nervous because many of the sidhe pride themselves on retaining their original accents." - Merry, KoS pg 100. "Then I heard another man's voice, a smooth masculine voice, with just a touch of accent. I knew the voice." - Merry, KoS pg 121. "He [Bucca-Dhu] spoke in clear thought accented English." - Merry, CoT 298. Just what did Merry hear when she heard that touch of accent? She's American, born and raised. Her formative language learning years were spent in the public school system. She would hear a native American English speaker as accentless. Everyone else would sound accented. The person who was referred to in the second quotation was Sholto, King of the Sluagh. He's Scottish and he was raised amid people speaking Scottish Gaelic . English would then be his second language, and he would speak with an accent. Gaelic, you ask? Where did that come from? The sluagh (sloo-ah, lit. 'spirit multitude') are a group of fey that came out of the Highlands of Scotland. History isn't clear on how old the tradition of the sluagh is but it does go back to pre-Christian times. Perhaps those sluagh that were around to watch the Romans build their settlements spoke Brythonic Celtic. It is even possible that the language of the sluagh is a form of Pictish. The Picts themselves lost their much of their hold on the Highlands in the mid-8th century but the geography and dating fit. Gaelic was brought to Scotland through successive waves of migration from Ireland beginning roughly in the 6th century. By the 11th century, Gaelic was the lingua franca of Scotland. So what do the rest of the court sound like to Merry? It depends. The Seelie and Unseelie Courts are both Scottish by tradition but the sidhe of the courts come from a variety of locals. Andais swears by the Irish goddess Danu, for example. Nicca is from Cornwall, as is Kitto. Others, such as Taranis (formerly a Gaulic god) came over from the continent. Court probably sounds like a European house party to Merry as they're all speaking accented English when she's around. After all, it's rude to use a language that the other person doesn't know and Merry would have to do a lot of catching up to be able to speak all the languages of Faerie. --- Sidhe versus Elf If one were unfortunate enough to be both sidhe-struck and elf-struck, then one would have had amazing, mind-bending sex with two different types of supernatural being. Lucky duck, I'd say. Are the terms sidhe and elf referring to two categories of fey? In a word, yes. But we'd have to go further afield than the Merriam-Webster dictionary to find this out. To quote Encyclopaedia Mythica, "Sidhe (shee; also sidh, si, and sith) literally means "people of the (fairy) hills". It's the Gaelic name for the fairies in both Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland." The stately, aristocratic daoine sidhe (theena shee) have an Irish pedigree. In Scotland, sidhe ran from pretty, sometimes winged, humanoids (if they were good or at least not actively evil) to ugly and monstrous horrors. Irish sidhe have the particularity of being a diminished people: the remnants of the Tuatha Dé Dannan (thoo'a-haw day dah'-nawn, lit. people of Danu), a magical race that came from the west, who were driven underground by the Milesians, invaders under the command of the eight sons of the Spanish Celtic king Milesius. A 16th century scholar named O'Flaherty placed the Milesian invasion at about 1000 BC, which just happens to fall in line with the start of the Iron Age of human history. The daoine sidhe continued to maintain separate, often warring, kingdoms among themselves. It's interesting to note that the intense dislike fey had for iron was attributed to the daoine sidhe (who may have had good historical reason for fearing the metal that defeated their bronze weapons) and the smaller butterfly-like faries (the demi-fey in the Merryverse). More forbidding fey such as the sluagh and goblins were originally indifferent to the metal. As Christianity fused with older beliefs, an iron cross became doubly potent as a ward against witches and fey alike. Elves or Alfar (lit. 'shining white one') are a long-established in Nordic and Teutonic mythology as beings created (or arising, depending on source) not long after the gods. They are divided into three races: Light (Ljosalfar), Dark (Dokkalfar), and Black (Svartalfar). Black elves became known as dwarves in Germanic regions. Elves were characterized by their magical knowledge and wisdom: even Odin learned a thing or two from the Dark elves. The names Light and Dark referred to the dwellings of the elves in question: the former were found in attendance to the god Freyr in Alfheim. The latter were found in mounds, hillocks, and rocks. Both types appeared as exceptionally beautiful to humans. Black elves, or dwarves, had the least auspicious origins: they were created out of the maggots that crawled out of the giant Ymir's corpse. Not a good-looking race, misshapen, and generally ugly, their skill at smithing was unmatched. None of the Nordic or Teutonic elves of any race feared iron. Their society passed into mythology more or less intact without the change from clans to medieval courts as was seen with the daoine sidhe. Elves, like the Nordic gods and heroes, were fatalistic and serious peoples. They spent their days counting down to the end of the world (Ragnarok or Gotterdammerung) pursuing magical knowledge, developing their skills at crafts, and occasionally helping the odd mortal.
[19:34:34:0.75724000] AFTER: Daoine Sidhe The divine folk of Old Irish folklore. After the Tuatha Dé Danann were defeated by the Milesians (Gaels), those members who decided to stay in Ireland formed the Daoine Sidhe. They live in hollow mounds, hence the name sidhe which literally means "people of the (fairy) mounds". In Connaught they are ruled by Finbheara, who holds court beneath the fairy hill of Knockma. His wife is the fair Oonagh. In Munster, there are three fairy queens: Cliodna, Aine (said to be the mother of Earl Gerald, who sleeps under the castle of Mullaghmast), and Aoibhill. The Daoine Sidhe are fond of battles, hurling (a kind of field hockey) and are skilled chess players. Many a mortal challenged Finvarra to a game and lost all his possessions, for the king has never been beaten. These fairies are small and this is responsible for the name of daoine beaga, "little folk". They may ride out to hunt, or stir up an eddy of dust, or engage in battles, or steal children, or prevent butter from forming in the churn. TALES OF THE DAOINE SIDHE (pronounced deenie shee - meaning - The Good People) Folktales of Ireland Is fearr go mall na go brach (better late than never) This is a compilation of Irish folktales, originating from oral tradition and retold over the centuries. Many versions have appeared in print and so the original authors are often lost in a maze of confusion. Some of them are my own version. A quote on the lonely fate of fairies in our own century: from "The Old Gods: The facts about Irish Fairies" by Patrick Logan "Bulldozers now level fairie raths and sweep away fairie trees, and the Good People appear to be unable to defend and preserve their homes. No farmer nowadays would allow some of the milk from his milking machine to run off on the ground as a tribute for the fairies. Nobody ever applies to the fairies for permission and approval when he wishes to build a house. Fairie places and fairie passes are no longer treated with respect........... All this is obvious to anyone who looks around at the Ireland of today." From"The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries" by Evans Wentz. quote: I have never seen a man fairy nor a woman fairy, but my mother saw a troop of them. She herself and the other maidens of the townland were once out upon the summer sheiling (grazing). They were milking the cows, in the evening gloaming, when they observed a flock of fairies reeling and setting upon the green plain in front of the knoll. And, oh King! But it was they the fairies themselves that had the right to dancing, and not the children of men! Bell-helmets of green silk covered their heads, and garments of green satin covered their bodies, and sandals of yellow membrane covered their feet. Their heavy fair hair was streaming down their waist, and its lustre was of the fair golden sun of summer. Their skin was as white as the swan of the wave, and their voice was as melodious as the mavis of the wood, and they themselves were as beauteous of feature and as lithe of form as a picture, while their step was as light and stately and their minds as sportive as the little red hind of the hill. The damsel children of the sheiling-fold never saw sight but them, no never sight but them, never aught so beautiful. There is not a wave of prosperity upon the fairies of the knoll, no, not a wave. There is no growth nor increase, no death nor withering upon the fairies. Seed unfortunate they! They went away from the Paradise with the One of the Great Pride. When the Father commanded the doors closed down and up, the intermediate fairies had no alternative but to leap into the holes of the earth, where they are, and where they will be. This is what I heard upon the knee of my beloved mother.

Daoine Sidhe If Humans can breed with Fae, and Humans can breed with Dragons, then it is a logical assumption that Fae can breed with Dragons. This assumption is true, but the practice is not looked upon with favor, as the result is sterile, and by anyone's definition, not altogether sane. The main problem comes in that fact that two races of very singular purpose are crossbreeding. The main driving force in a Dragon is its obsession with collecting things. Seelie, thanks to the actions of Auberon, are driven by the Compact to protect humans from the Unseelie. The Unseelie, thanks to the Adversary, are driven to destroy humanity. These obsessions mix disastrously. Thankfully, these cross-breeds are very rare. Only two Faerie Dragons and four Annwn Drakes have been reported throughout all of history. Dragon-Seelie Crossbreeds The Dragon-Seelie cross, also known as a Faerie Dragon, is truly a majestic creature. They look very much like a Daoine Sidhe, averaging seven to eight feet tall, with cat-like dragon eyes gazing startlingly out of their Seelie faces. Faerie Dragons have all the abilities of a Daoine Sidhe, as well as all the draconic powers, memories, and the sorcery skills of their dragon parent. Faerie Dragons are vulnerable to Cold Iron, and can cross into the Faerie Veil just as any other Daoine Sidhe. Anyone viewing a Faerie Dragon will see a kind of inner radiance, caused by the being's inherent physical and magickal power. In fact, Faerie Dragons give off a soft luminance that is enough to read by at night. In the past, they have often been mistaken for Angels or other supernatural beings. The Seelie cold reserve crossed with the draconic calm detachment has resulted in a creature that feels detached from the rest of the world, feels almost no emotions, and possesses no morals simply because it does not understand the need for them. Their inhumanity makes them seem cruel to humans. Faerie Dragons are dedicated foes of the Unseelie. Although they dwell in the remotest, loftiest areas away from all other life, they will take a clinical interest in anything that enters their territory. If it is Unseelie, they hunt it mercilessly. If it is human, they take it home. Faerie Dragons feel the compulsion to protect humans from the Unseelie, but they do it by collecting them - by taking humans back to their lair, and suspending them in time. In any Faerie Dragon's lair, you will find a collection of humans from all ages, stored away safely until such time as the world has been rid of Unseelie. Periodically, Faerie Dragons will go out into the world in search of important people that should be "saved." Anyone out alone when a Faerie Dragon is on the prowl may disappear without a trace. Dragon-Unseelie Crossbreeds The Dragon-Unseelie cross, also known as an Annwn Drake (prononced Anoon) , is as hellish as a Faerie Dragon is majestic. Their appearance, both in human and dragon forms, is so horribly twisted that they have been mistaken for demons, devils, and other mythical creatures spawned out of nightmares. Annwn Drakes have all the abilities of a Daoine Sidhe, as well as all the draconic powers, memories, and the sorcery skills of their dragon parent. Annwn Drakes are vulnerable to Cold Iron, and can cross into the Faerie Veil just as any other Daoine Sidhe. As Faerie Dragons give off light, Annwn Drakes absorb it. Even full daylight will dim in any area an Annwn Drake is present in. Annwn Drakes are, even in Unseelie eyes, insane. The conflict between the Unseelie obsession to destroy humanity and burn the earth crossed with the draconic obsession for collections has resulted in something so unstable it is a wonder that it doesn't kill itself. For this reason, Annwn Drakes are even more antisocial than normal dragons. You will never find more than one Annwn Drake in any given area, not even at the command of the Adversary or during a Wild Hunt. If an Annwn Drake ever encounters another, the two will fight until nothing but bloody scraps are left. Annwn Drakes are dedicated foes of the Seelie. While Faerie Dragons dwell in remote, lofty areas; Annwn Drakes dwell in remote caverns in the depths of the Earth, often deep within the calderas of active volcanoes. At least once every five hundred years, an Annwn Drake will leave its lair to hunt and terrorize. If it finds a Seelie, it hunts it mercilessly. If it is human, well, pity any human that falls into the clutches of an Annwn Drake. In the lair of an Annwn Drake, and along its flight path home from its hunting grounds, you will find pieces of its prey. Driven by the conflicting desires to destroy and collect, anything caught by an Annwn Drake is usually slowly nibbled to death, as the Annwn Drake eats a bite here, tears off a limb there, all the while saving the rest, so as to fulfill both desires. When not out hunting, an Annwn Drake squats in its lair like a bloated spider, snarling and snapping at shadows, driven to destroy so much that it is filled with hatred and loathing for itself, but unable to kill itself (or finish eating anything it has collected) because of its obsession for preserving things. Even the Adversary is wary about approaching such creatures in the dark labyrinths of their lairs. Daoine Sidhe - Ireland. The Daoine Sidhe (pronounced Theena Shee) are the remnants of the Tuatha de Danaan (Tootha day danan) elves, or high faery people. Once they were gigantic in stature, but Christianity came along and diminished them in the stories in both importance and stature. A Sidhe or Faery hill is called a "rath". The Sidhe king, Finvarra, and queen, Oonagh, hold court under the faery hill of Knockma. The Daoine Sidhe enjoy fighting and chess. They also enjoy "hurling". Sometimes, as in human matches, the excitement would get out of hand. This happened, for instance, in the hurling match between the faery folk of Munster and the home team of Connaught. When the Connaught team was winning, the Munster team changed to flying beetles and started devouring everything green in sight. The Connaught team came back by opening a hole in the ground from which came thousands of doves, which began to devour the marauding beetles. Rhys, who looks like a bodybuilding priviate detective on the high seas, can quote from film noir and kill with a touch when he isn't defrizzing his waist length fall of white curls. But who is he really? The direct translation of Cromm Crúaich is 'bent one of the mound'. It's thought to originate from the damage to idol where the top half was severed and pushed forward onto its face. Alternatively, the idol is Cenn Crúaich, 'head of the mound' or 'chief of the mound'. A solar deity, his defeat was attributed to St Patrick in a dindshenchas (a type of poem used to tell a story about the origins of the names of places) found in the Book of Leinster, of Ballymote and of Lecan. In the poem, Cenn Crúaich received sacrifices of children and animal firstlings on the eve of samhain. St Patrick came across an idol of Cenn Crúaich, which bowed down before him before the earth opened up and swallowed it. No trace, however, has yet been discovered in the writings of Saint Patrick of any being remotely like Cenn Crúaich. Cenn Crúaich was said to have been introduced to Ireland by Tiernmas (also spelled Tigernmas), the fifth Milesian king after Eremon. He's also credited with being the first to mine and smelt gold in Ireland, and his people were the first humans to discover the process of dying clothes; previously it seems only the the Tuatha Dé Danann knew how to dye clothes. This king and three-quarters of his people were said to have been killed while worshipping Cenn Crúaich on samhain. Of course, if a Milesian king introduced the worship of Crenn Crúaich then the god was established after the Tuatha Dé Danann had retreated to their sithen. That doesn't fit with Rhys fighting the Formorians alongside the rest of the sidhe. A dindshenchas of Mag Slecht (the Plain of Adoration, where the sacrifices to idol took place) contains this line: 'Until Patricks (sic) advent he was the god of every folk that colonized Ireland.' This strongly suggests that here is an idol that predates the Mileasians. And if 'every' is taken literally, Crenn Crúaich might also predate the Tuatha Dé Danann, Firbolg, and Formorians. Apr 30/05 --- Pantheon Pandemonium Taranis isn't sidhe. Stop laughing, I'm serious. Where do I get off saying that sort of thing? Easy. Taranis wasn't one of the Tuatha Dé Dannan and he was still being worshipped as a god in Celtic Gaul some eight hundred years after the De Dannan were driven into their sithen by the invading Milesians. The Roman poet Lucan notes in his poem Pharsalia: "...and those Gauls who propitiate with human sacrifices the merciless gods Teutas, Esus and Taranis - at whose altars the visitor shudders because they are as awe-inspiring as those of the Scythian Diana." The three 'merciless gods' must have been a fun bunch to worship. Taranis liked his sacrificial victims immolated in a wicker cage. Esus was partial to blood-sacrifice and hanging. Teutates preferred his offerings drowned in a sacrificial lake. Taranis, whose name is rooted in the Indo-European 'taran' or thunder, was associated with Jupiter by the Romans. He was symbolized by a solar wheel, lightening bolts, and fire. Esus (with one 's'), whose name means lord or master, was identified as Mars. For some reason he was depicted with three birds and a bull. Teutates, whose name can be rendered as 'god of the people' or 'protector-father', was identified with Mercury and Mars. He was seen as the god of war, wealth and fertility. Teutates was noted by Lucan and Julius Caesar as being the most revered of the three. As a quick aside, Esus' consort was Rosmerta, who was a goddess of fertility and abundance. Perhaps with all the sacrifices, the Gaulish tribes felt they needed all the fertility deities they could get. As an aside to an aside, Rosmerta is also the name of the Irish (read: De Dannan) Lugh's wife in later traditions. In the Merryverse, the noble fae or sidhe represent a distinct race. Recall that 'sidhe' is Irish Gaelic so it, like Seelie and Unseelie, is a term coined by humans and adopted by fae. It may very well be that the fae's native name for themselves doesn't translate to English or renders simply to a common self-naming such as 'the people'. In folklore, fae tended to be secretive about their true names and in Merry's world many fae have names that are likely second or third aliases (Rhys, Doyle, Nicca, Kitto, Barinthus, and Hedwick are easy examples). It's not too much a stretch to consider that the noble fae have not devulged their race-name for magical reasons. I'd venture that the Tuatha De Dannan represent an ethnic grouping and while Taranis and his Gaulish cohorts were not 'people of the goddess Danu' they belong to the same racial type. One could theorize that the Tuatha De Dannan were a first wave migration from the Near East followed by the Gaulish group. One could go even further and theorize that both waves were seeking to escape the western migration of the pre-Celtic tribes. The Gaulish fae managed to get themselves worshipped by the Gaullish Celts so it's not too surprising they held out longer above ground than the De Dannan. The following are couple short lists of French and Irish gods and goddesses for reference. French (Gaul) Abnoba - goddess of the hunt; similar to the Roman goddess Diana. Andraste - goddess of victory. Belenus - god of light; his name means 'shining one' (see Lugh). Borvo - god of healing; his name is associated with springs.

From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "The Court of the kind and benign fairy host, usually seen around twilight in long solemn processions. These fairies help the poor with gifts of corn and bread." Sidhe : people of the (fairy) hills. From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "Sidhe (pronounced 'shee') literally means "people of the (fairy) hills". It is the Gaelic name for the fairies in both Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland. Usually these fairies are attracted to those who are beautiful as well as wealthy." More specifically, Daoine Sidhe: "The divine folk of Old Irish folklore. After the Tuatha Dé Dannan were defeated by the Milesians (Gaels), those members who decided to stay in Ireland formed the Daoine Sidhe. They live in hollow mounds, hence the name sidhe which literally means "people of the (fairy) mounds". Unseelie : unholy, damned. From Encyclopaedia Mythica: "The evil counterpart of the Seelie Court is always unfavorable towards mankind. The part which flies through the sky at night is called the 'Horde'. Mortals unfortunate enough to cross the Horde's path are taken along for a hell-ride. These poor victims are beaten and pinched and forced to participate in the bizarre nocturnal activities of these creatures. The Unseelie Court ("Unholy Court" solely consists of those of the fairy-like beings which are the most ugly and evil." Unsidhe : a somewhat nonsensical modern construct attributed to erroneous Japanese anime interpretations of United Kingdom folklore. Literally, it would denote people not of the (fairy) hills (i.e. Joe Mortal).

[Alternative : Hebrew, verb, 'to be aired'] Nov 13/02 ; updated Nov 18/02 --- Far-Flung Fae? Among the Kurdish Yezidi, the evil spirit known as Rashe Shebbe or Shevve sometimes substitutes a human infant for a demon child in the first seven days of life. Ahuras and daevas are the supernatural beings of Persian Magianism and the successor religion Zoroastrianism. Both names derive from the word devata, meaning, as in the case of the ahuras, the 'Shining Ones'. Archaelogical investigations of Catal Huyuk, a double-mound of earth in Turkey, have uncovered no less than thirteen layers of occupation dating back to 6,500 BCE. Approx 1,200 BCE : a race of underground smiths called the Cabiri were named the first metalworkers by the Greeks. Also called fire genii, the Cabiri came from Cappadocia, an area known for its basalt rock cones that reach over a hundred feet in height and its underground communities that could house an estimated 100,000 - 200,000 people. The subterranean communties Cappadocia have been dated to approximately 9,500 to 9,000 BCE. Nov 13/02 --- Le Goblin King Kurag, the Goblin King, speaks French. And if he doesn't speak French, he should. Now why would anyone suggest that his highness speaks French? Doesn't he have enough going for him with the all over body warts, those sparkling three eyes, and that sentient parasitic twin? Mai oui. But Kurag is a goblin and goblins are French by origin. French humans are passionately dedicated to preserving their language and culture; there's no good reason to assume French fey wouldn't have the same attitudes. Fey are not exactly known as progressive, avant-garde group. The word goblin is borrowed from Norman French, itself a derivation of Old Northern French, dating back to the 10th century. Norman French was brought to English shores during the Norman Conquest of 1066 AD. Given the opportunistic nature of goblins, it's likely both word and creature landed when the Normans did. Norman French, called Anglo-Norman in England, was the language of court and privilege until the 13th century. There's other details that might be hints: Kurag's skin is yellowed, a symptom of a life-long smoker. As anyone who's been to France will attest, they are a nation dedicated to their cigarettes. There is a low level animosity between goblin and sidhe, despite their alliances, that certainly echos the difficulties between French and English humans. The goblin standard of beauty strikes outsiders as bizarre and ugly. French high fashion affects many in much the same way. Have Kurag and his goblins retained anything of their Normandy origins? No-one really knows. But perhaps the bones scattered in the goblin mound are frogs' legs and the rotting meat is pheasant, aging to perfection. --- Flattened Vowels and Glottal Stops "Made me nervous because many of the sidhe pride themselves on retaining their original accents." - Merry, KoS pg 100. "Then I heard another man's voice, a smooth masculine voice, with just a touch of accent. I knew the voice." - Merry, KoS pg 121. "He [Bucca-Dhu] spoke in clear thought accented English." - Merry, CoT 298. Just what did Merry hear when she heard that touch of accent? She's American, born and raised. Her formative language learning years were spent in the public school system. She would hear a native American English speaker as accentless. Everyone else would sound accented. The person who was referred to in the second quotation was Sholto, King of the Sluagh. He's Scottish and he was raised amid people speaking Scottish Gaelic . English would then be his second language, and he would speak with an accent. Gaelic, you ask? Where did that come from? The sluagh (sloo-ah, lit. 'spirit multitude') are a group of fey that came out of the Highlands of Scotland. History isn't clear on how old the tradition of the sluagh is but it does go back to pre-Christian times. Perhaps those sluagh that were around to watch the Romans build their settlements spoke Brythonic Celtic. It is even possible that the language of the sluagh is a form of Pictish. The Picts themselves lost their much of their hold on the Highlands in the mid-8th century but the geography and dating fit. Gaelic was brought to Scotland through successive waves of migration from Ireland beginning roughly in the 6th century. By the 11th century, Gaelic was the lingua franca of Scotland. So what do the rest of the court sound like to Merry? It depends. The Seelie and Unseelie Courts are both Scottish by tradition but the sidhe of the courts come from a variety of locals. Andais swears by the Irish goddess Danu, for example. Nicca is from Cornwall, as is Kitto. Others, such as Taranis (formerly a Gaulic god) came over from the continent. Court probably sounds like a European house party to Merry as they're all speaking accented English when she's around. After all, it's rude to use a language that the other person doesn't know and Merry would have to do a lot of catching up to be able to speak all the languages of Faerie. --- Sidhe versus Elf If one were unfortunate enough to be both sidhe-struck and elf-struck, then one would have had amazing, mind-bending sex with two different types of supernatural being. Lucky duck, I'd say. Are the terms sidhe and elf referring to two categories of fey? In a word, yes. But we'd have to go further afield than the Merriam-Webster dictionary to find this out. To quote Encyclopaedia Mythica, "Sidhe (shee; also sidh, si, and sith) literally means "people of the (fairy) hills". It's the Gaelic name for the fairies in both Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland." The stately, aristocratic daoine sidhe (theena shee) have an Irish pedigree. In Scotland, sidhe ran from pretty, sometimes winged, humanoids (if they were good or at least not actively evil) to ugly and monstrous horrors. Irish sidhe have the particularity of being a diminished people: the remnants of the Tuatha Dé Dannan (thoo'a-haw day dah'-nawn, lit. people of Danu), a magical race that came from the west, who were driven underground by the Milesians, invaders under the command of the eight sons of the Spanish Celtic king Milesius. A 16th century scholar named O'Flaherty placed the Milesian invasion at about 1000 BC, which just happens to fall in line with the start of the Iron Age of human history. The daoine sidhe continued to maintain separate, often warring, kingdoms among themselves. It's interesting to note that the intense dislike fey had for iron was attributed to the daoine sidhe (who may have had good historical reason for fearing the metal that defeated their bronze weapons) and the smaller butterfly-like faries (the demi-fey in the Merryverse). More forbidding fey such as the sluagh and goblins were originally indifferent to the metal. As Christianity fused with older beliefs, an iron cross became doubly potent as a ward against witches and fey alike. Elves or Alfar (lit. 'shining white one') are a long-established in Nordic and Teutonic mythology as beings created (or arising, depending on source) not long after the gods. They are divided into three races: Light (Ljosalfar), Dark (Dokkalfar), and Black (Svartalfar). Black elves became known as dwarves in Germanic regions. Elves were characterized by their magical knowledge and wisdom: even Odin learned a thing or two from the Dark elves. The names Light and Dark referred to the dwellings of the elves in question: the former were found in attendance to the god Freyr in Alfheim. The latter were found in mounds, hillocks, and rocks. Both types appeared as exceptionally beautiful to humans. Black elves, or dwarves, had the least auspicious origins: they were created out of the maggots that crawled out of the giant Ymir's corpse. Not a good-looking race, misshapen, and generally ugly, their skill at smithing was unmatched. None of the Nordic or Teutonic elves of any race feared iron. Their society passed into mythology more or less intact without the change from clans to medieval courts as was seen with the daoine sidhe. Elves, like the Nordic gods and heroes, were fatalistic and serious peoples. They spent their days counting down to the end of the world (Ragnarok or Gotterdammerung) pursuing magical knowledge, developing their skills at crafts, and occasionally helping the odd mortal.

Futher if you go and look on the celtic myths sites you get a lot of the things about people of the mountains and stuff... pretty cool tho Just to bad the real true meaning why we use it cant be found elsewhere online except here (as far as i know). Maybe someday in the future if i am pretty long in DS and everything is going fine i make my own site about this clan with the info and stuff Easy to let the recruits which will join then read it and answer some questions about it to know if they did read it or not cause it will be important. Since i gonna put a lot of the diablo 2 division on it then aswell including rules and our new structure where we are working at Btw i didnt read the whole stuff to much to read it probably takes me an hour and i dont have that long
