The Seelie Fae Court

The Seelie Court are considered the true aristocrats of the Daoine Sidhe. They are compiled of judges, dispensing justice to the other Fae when it is required, and serve as frequent arbitrators of the many Fae quarrels. The Seelie Court is very political, complete with cliques, factions, gossiping, and rivalry. But never the arts of backstabbing, lying, and murder.

Sometimes they are called the ‘Blessed Ones' by the inhabitants of the Human Realm, the Seelie are often depicted as a procession of brilliant light riding on the night air. The Seelie Court, as a group, often use these excursions to find those in need of help. The Seelie are also prone to a great deal of mischief, especially when bored. However, their pranks rarely caused true harm, for the Seelie were really very fond of humans and their strange habits.

The Seelie Court Fae occasionally tolerate the company of beautiful or gifted creatures, preferring those of Fae, Elfin, or Celestial blood. These "court friends" may provide companionship and amusements, but only those with pure lineage may hold positions of importance.

Admittance to the Seelie Court for outsiders is extremely rare, even more so if the outsiders are not of pure Fae blood. Upon entrance to the court, visitors must be prepared with valuable and unusual gifts for the Queen of Light, or they might find themselves lost in an endless hedge maze. Suitable gifts for the Queen include figurines of wondrous power, gems of brightness, and magical jewelry.

The physical appearance of the Seelie Court mirrors nature, to which the fey are intrinsically linked. White ash trees, strong and stately, with their branches intertwining to create a living ceiling, line the throne hall like marble columns. Gossamer streamers of iridescent blues, pinks and purples wind their way through the boughs. Phosphorescent flowers gleam like lanterns midst the treetops. Semi-precious jewels of amethysts, tiger's eyes and topaz decorate flowers that float down the waterways lining the path to the throne. Statues carved of gold and adorned with gems further attest to the wealth and beauty of the current ruler, as each Queen must display more splendor than the previous one or risk the gossip and scorn of her subjects. The throne itself, and the Queen who sits on it, are the focal points of the room. The throne of the Seelie Court is shaped like a large ice dragon, as brilliantly cold and glittery as the Fae nobility.

The Code of the Seelie Court:

Death Before Dishonor: A member of the Seelie Court are to protect his or her honor to the death. Honor is the single source of glory for the Seelie, the only way to attain recognition. A true Seelie would rather die than live with personal dishonor, and would never bring dishonor to another of the Seelie.
Love Conquers All: For the Seelie, love is the perfect expression of the soul. It transcends all other things. Though romantic love is considered to be the highest and purest form of love, platonic love is also encouraged.
Beauty Is Life: Beauty is one of the first tenants of the Seelie Court. To belong, a faerie has to be beautiful, and all beauty is to be protected. The Seelie are known to go to war to protect beauty, whether it is a beautiful person, place, or thing.
Never Forget A Debt: This tenant works in two ways. The Seelie are bound by their code of honor to repay any debt owed as soon as possible. This includes both favors and insults. The Seelie will repay a favor in a timely fashion. At the same time, they will exact vengeance almost immediately.
