Fey, or spirits, are living beings which originate from Alfaheim.
Every fey represents the embodiment of a concept. This concept, then, is considered the name of a fey.
Splintering and Marriage Edit
While fey do not possess the ability to reproduce like biological beings, they do have a form of asexual reproduction which is known as splintering. Through this process, the fey takes an aspect of their name and transforms it into its own fey; this, in turn, removes that aspect from the name of the original fey.
Fey also possess an ability known as marriage, where two fey can combine their names to become one being.
These processes can be combined to produce an effect like sexual reproduction, where a fey can be made with aspects from two (or more) parents.
