| Elf, Sidhe (Faerie)|
|Children of fantasy and storybook tales.|
The Fey Elves, Aelf-Beorth (Lochlainn)|
The sidhe (pronounced shee) are fey native to the outer plane known as Faerie. Though rather rare in the prime material realms of Geas, the sidhe are nonetheless a presence. Most often, the sidhe found on Geas are in remote, unspoiled wildernesses on holiday from the intrigues of the royal court of Titania and Oberon.
The sidhe resemble high elves in many ways. Their features are Elven in nature, though much more exaggerated. Most notable are the sizes of their pointed ears, which tend to stick out a bit from their heads and out from under their hair. Additionally, the sidhe have much paler skin ranging anywhere in hue from normal skin tone to a pale blue. For all purposes, the sidhe are immortal; only unnatural death, such as from trauma or disease, can end their existence. If they die in the Sidhe Way and were loyal servants of Titania or Oberon, the deities might decide to reinstate them...in one form or another.

Outsider (Fey): As natives of the Faerie Kingdom, sidhe are considered outsiders and are subject to spells that affect outsiders. This also means that they are immune to spells that target standard creatures, such as hold person.
The highly magical and wild nature of the Sidhe Way can easily give rise to a strange and wondrous ancestry.
