Valentine Fae

Fey or Fay

In the English Language fey means otherworldly, able to see the future, or touched in the head. In popular culture the fey, if recognized at all, have been reduced to small, winged, humanoid, female creatures who are frequently portrayed in the nude.

Much to the common knowledge, the Fay are not; though akin to pixies and other winged creatures of the mystic realm, the classical beings of mischief and malice. They are capable of that, no doubt, but they are what you call the "nobler race" of all their kin. Mostly human, they have wonderful talents of magic, scribes, and metalwork (etc.), though contrary to human activities of 'overdoing' their craft to reducing forests for profit, Fay are one with nature. Described as one of the wisest and fairest beings, they possess longevity, yet can die of common causes like wounds, but invulnerable to poison and can heal wounds more easily than mortals. They have strange vulnerabilities, though, which can lead to death for them but not for us, like, sadly enough... a broken heart. They have a very playful nature, and more Fae die every Millennia thanks to them falling in love with a mortal they only set out to mess around with. You can tell they have died through a broken heart because the spot where the heart is placed under the skin and muscle turns black and as do their veins. They die with the look of love in their eyes and tears on their cheeks. The sight is terrifyingly sad and beautiful. Only very few Mortals have seen their mythical loves like this and most afterwards are left in such a mental state that they adopt the idea that they are not worthy of living, as they have hurt someone enough to death. They usual die the cruel death of suicide. This cannot be helped, because unless it was the Last Wish of the faerie to save this particular mortal, the rest of the fae cannot interrupt the natural cycle of the mortals life, even though it has already been touched by the magic of the Fay.
