━━━━━━━━━ male · homosexual · puca ━━━━━━━━━

At age 18, the young pooka fled Hybern and took refuge in the Court of Dreams. A commoner, he is a prankster, clever and quick to flatter against any highborn in return for their favor to shine upon him. Little is known about his past in Hybern, though it is whispered he was a pleasure slave before he learned to be a bard.

As a pooka, he has the ability to shapeshift into whatever animal pleases him, typically a pony, though goats, cats, dogs, ravens, foxes, and hares are also noteworthy. Whatever form a pooka takes, they always have staunch white or perfectly black fur with glowing golden eyes. Samhain knows how to play the panpipes and the harp. His name is pronounced sow-WEN or sow-EEN, though anglicized and bastardized, some pronounce it as it is spelt, sam-HAYN. His nickname therefore is Sow, not Sam. He gets upset when people mispronounce his name. Another variant of the name, which means "Summer's-End," is Shamhna, pronounced shav-nah. In the Gaelic Calendar, Samhain (the midpoint between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice, though typically rounded to the first of November, or in the modern day, attributed to Halloween) marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of the 'darker half of the year.'

B E A T R I X ' trixie ' OF THE LIGHT
29 years old, female, pixie noblewoman of the court of summer, pansexual and polyamorous. As a pixie, she has gossamer wings which she can use to fly, the ability to make pixie-lights out of fairy fire to light her way or lead people astray - fairy fire is a phantom will-o'-wisp, it does not give off heat and does not burn. She can also create fairy, or in this case, pixie-dust, a multi-use magical powdered drug, which can be either an aphrodisiac, a sedative, a hallucinogen, or poison.
Like the rest of her race, Trixie is a wild and free spirit but is prone to addiction, obsession, hoarding, and stalking. Pretty ribbons and shiny things she is quick to pocket when no one is looking, and has a strong liking for ale and mead. Trixie is known of her love of a good laugh, and is easy to please. Rarely seen in a bad mood, she is slow to anger or tears, and is usually the one you seek out if you need cheering up. A gentle lady, she is said to never raise her voice or a hand to anyone.
A descendant from the infamous pixies Jack of the Lantern, Joan of the Wad, through their son, Will of the Wisp, (wad and wisp being a bundle of sticks or paper used for a torch), Trixie was of questionably noble birth, and while to some, pixies are nothing more than bothersome lesser fae, she was well respected in the summer court, despite the history involving her family and their attempt to gain control over Prythian via rebellion. The only daughter and last heir to her noble house, she is all that remains of the pixie 'royal' line.
