The Unseelie Court consists of the darkly-inclined fairies. Unlike the Seelie Court, no offense is necessary to bring down their assaults. As a group (or “host”), they appear at night and assault travelers, often carrying them through the air, beating them, and forcing them to commit such acts as shooting at cattle. Like the beings of the Seelie Court who are not always benevolent, neither are the fairies of the Unseelie Court always malevolent. Most Unseelies can become fond of a particular human if they are viewed as respectful, and would choose to make them something of a pet.
Red Caps were feared by all in centuries past, but recently their existence has been dismissed as a myth. In fact, the Red Caps are quite real, and they enjoy nothing better than tormenting the various people they have trapped in Croatoa.
The true nature of the Will o’ the Wisps is a matter of some controversy among paranormal experts. Many believe that they are the byproducts of the Red Caps magic. They seem to be both intelligent and malevolent, and they will harm any person who comes near.
Jack in Irons
Believe it or not, this burly giant is proud of his appearance. He adorns himself with the severed heads of his victims, and he takes great pleasure in the panic these accessories evoke. Jack wandered the spirit plane for centuries until the Red Caps found him and brought him to Croatoa. All in all, he’s pleased with his new digs. There are plenty of people to frighten, and that suits him fine.
