From Moon Called:

  • the fae are not fond of attracting outside attention; it can be dangerous for everyoneIK-62

  • fae who are suspected of crimes tend not to survive to need lawyersIK-47

  • a fae doesn't consort with the enemyIK-215
  • the fae are a secretive people, and even the risk of disobeying the Gray Lords' orders in not worth giving up all our their secretsIK-215

  • they smell like the four elements that the old philosophers proposed: earth, air, fire, and water, with a healthy does of magicBC-86

From Hunting Ground:

  • with a fae it was always a good policy to bring an extra gift in lieu of a "thank you". Saying those words could be dangerous, as some fae took them to be an admission of obligationHG-33

  • staying on the right side of the fae is an interesting danceHG-52

From Silver Borne:

  • fae don't lieSB-08
  • thanking a fae implies that you feel indebted, and being indebted to a fae is a very bad thingSB-08

  • it's the steel that early Christian church brought along with it that was deadly to the fae, not Christianity itself -- though sometimes the fae forget that partRM-30
  • fae never give you anything for nothingRM-77

From Frost Burned:

  • from 1908 until a few years ago, it was the policy of the Gray Lords, to find fae of scarce but useful types and force them to marry and interbreed with humans since humans breed much more rapidly than the fae doFG-125


Glamour

  • the fae change their appearance by magic--glamour, they call it...not entirely sure that the fae can see through each other's glamourBB-123
  • glamour works best for sight and touch, very good for taste and hearing, but not as well for scentIK-15
  • if glamour has a weakness it is scentIK-28
  • few of the fae are beautiful with their glamour on; beauty doesn't blend in very well. the fae, like werewolves, spent a long time learning to hide in plain siteHG-49
  • the only thing all fae have in common is glamour, the ability to change their appearance; the illusion is so good that it affects not only human senses, but physical realityIK-13
  • it's not shapeshifting, but it's as close as makes no never mindIK-13
  • with enough glamour, a fae can take on the apperance of any living thing, but something inanimate is harderSB-88

From Silver Borne:

  • half-blood is not human enough to be saved by the guesting laws of the ElphameSB-305

From Fair Game:

  • half-blood fae face many challenges; for the most part they are not accepted by the other faeFG-125
  • too many of them exhibit odd properties - birth defects are very highFG-125
  • a high percentage of the halflings were abandoned by their fae parent altogether, which left them to discover who and what they were on their own - to sometimes disastrous resultsFG-126
  • a large number of the children turned out to be entirely humanFG-126
