Types of Huldufolk
While all Huldufolk have their have unique strengths and weakness, and are free to choose the factions and goals they support, there is one thing they cannot change: how they were born. How they became a Huldufolk, and how they were raised, greatly influences their place in Huldufolk society. There are three ways to become one of the Huldufólk:
- Hidden Born – Born of two Huldufolk parents, the Hidden Born have the closest relationship with the Angels, but don’t have a close relationship with normal humanity. Almost universally, the highest level leadership of The Blessed is composed of Hidden Born, who have the closest connection to the Angels they serve.
- The Lost Twin – When a Huldufolk and human manage to cross the barrier between their kind, fall in love, and have children, they always have twins — one becomes human, one Huldufolk. The Lost Twin is drawn to their sibling their entire life, and lives with one foot in the Huldufolk world, another following the footsteps of their twin.
- The Stolen – The Stolen are humans who a Banished has coaxed into committing a mortal sin, often murder, to separate themselves from humanity. While separated, the Banished perform a ritual to hide the target from the world permanently, bestowing the curse of the Huldufolk.
