Seelie: The Seelie's refusal to hand rule over to the Unseelie at Samhain is the original sin of all Kithain politics. It created the precedent that with the combination of might and the tacit consent of the Dreaming, tyranny is justified. In the middle ages, it probably seemed like a big trade up to have the kind, benevolent dictator over the cruel and capricious one. But we're post American Revolution at this point. All tyranny is wrong, and all tyrants are evil.
Unseelie: With no path to the throne, we became complacent in our victimhood. Decided to play the part of the monster, the hedonist, and the thief. Unseelie should be about the freedom to be anything, not just the freedom to be the ultimate asshole.
Shadow Court: What's this? Never heard of it. Sounds like QAnon for faeries. You should get off Facebook.
Sluagh: I don't have anything against my extended family. Only a Sluagh is ever going to understand what it's like to be a Sluagh. But it's time to crawl out of the cellars, stop gossiping, and start doing something with all that information you've been hoarding, coz.
Sidhe: Some of them are temporary allies. Even the privileged can feel disenfranchised in their own way. But show me a single Sidhe that has renounced their title, all claim to rulership, all claim to land, and sworn an oath to never force a commoner to obey their commands through either Art or coercion. That is a Sidhe who's hand I'll shake. Until then, ASAB.
Trolls: Big. Strong. They keep their word, sure, but have you ever met a Troll that hadn't already sworn an oath to someone? Hard to value something that they give away so freely.
Satyrs: Sure, who doesn't love beautiful half naked party animals? What's the point of being free if you aren't free to enjoy it?
Pooka: Might be the most honest Kith of all.
Redcaps: Are they dangerous? Yes? Good. Dangerous times call for dangerous fae. Let's just hope that when the time comes that we need them, they are still willing to show up and start dyeing some hats.
Boggans: Take care of the people who take care of you. Mistaking their desire to care for others as subservience could prove a dangerous fallacy.
Eshu: They tell good stories. Some of those stories even have good intel in them, if you can separate the truth from the embellishments.
Nockers: Who's ass do I need to kiss to get a lightning gun? More of these guys get it than any other kith. Technology isn't the enemy, just a tool our enemy uses to control and enslave. But the same hammer that forges a chain can also be used to break it.
Thallain: Never met one. I hear they are real terrible monsters. Then again, with entire Knightly Orders dedicated to hunting them down and eradicating them, what choice do they really have?
- Prodigals -
Vampires: Never met one. I hear they are really dangerous, and some of them are stuffed with banality. Guess that makes them just like regular folks?
Werewolves: Like Pooka mixed with Redcaps, from what I understand. They are fighting a war with each other over some religious nonsense, is what I heard.
Wraiths: Look, Caspar, I'll help you out when I can. But I've got my own problems that need sorting right now.
Mages: Humans with magic? Good for them.
