The First Root
Very little is actually known about the fairy folk. They are mysterious either by nature or by choice, and seem to be taking no steps to be less so. What facts are known about them would barely fill a few scroll. Most of what is known comes from legends and stories, many of which contradict each other.
What can be assumed is thus;
1) They may be immortal, but that may not be true or may not be true for all of them.
2) There may be two opposed tribes or clan of them, but that may be a misconception that may have been created and promoted by them.
3) They are strange alien creature that do not full understand the way other beings think or act, but that may be a ruse on their part.
4) Fairies live in a land separate from our own world, but it may actually be within our world.
5) They may have left the realm of mortal before the great cataclysm, but may actually have stayed to watch us.
6) They are unpredictable and potentially dangerous.
