Fae are in a constant struggle between courts winter is forever in contention with summer. It is also noted that anything that occurs in fae lands is a precursor to creation itself.
Fae names are exchanged frequently the focus of the power is determined by the individual who wear it. Knowing an individuals title is very important as well as there specific modus operandi.
A fae can live eternally, constantly reviving and dying in a continuous story. They are interwoven with stories so much that simply attaining a title can give them a great deal of power. The average fae soldier is tall skinny and adept with magic. A single contingent proved a great deal of trouble. Also the fae have an ability to "claim" location in creation, allowing them better access to the fae plane of existence allowing them to continually transport fae to creation.
Fae are susceptible to their stories. An individual whop uses witty banter can cause a fae to give up vital information even if the fae knows what the individual is doing thus and individuals who knows how to story craft such as Amadeus, the bard, or Catherine can often times confront individuals who are considerably more powerful than them if they know the story and role.
Fae while extremely powerful in their own plane of existence allowing them to draw on a far greater well of powerful prove extremely weak by comparison when they enter creation.
