Fae Heraldry[]

Get Yours Made

Heraldry is about identifying yourself, household, accomplishments and feats to others through the use of symbols, images and colors. Being far in advance both in martial skills, weaponry and societal structure than their human counterparts, some believe that the inspiration for mortal heraldry was borrowed from the Enchanted Realms.

Although many cultures have utilized body paint, standards and other forms of this throughout history, it began to become formalized in Western Europe in the later 1100s, when knights began to wear helmets which covered their faces, and they couldn't be recognised.

In order to identify one another, they began to paint unique combinations of colours, shapes and animals, called their 'arms', on their shields and banners. Only one person was allowed to use these arms, so when people saw a knight wearing them in a battle or tournament, they could tell who was who.

Heraldic Code[]

Over time, expert heralds devised a systematic language to describe Crests, Coats of Arms, and Banners, etc. It is a very precise artform and it can be fun. Although heraldry comes in many shapes in the mortal realm, the Fae tend to favor circular crests and coats, as the shape of the circle has great symbolic meaning in Fae culture.

Faerie Courts[]

Seelie Court:

Seelie Sigil1.gif

The Seelie rule over the light half of the year from Beltane (May 1) to Samhain (Oct 31). During this time, their magic is at its height. The Seelie fae have great respect for order, honour, tradition. They tend to be more helpful to humans, and return favors in kind. As with all Fae, Oaths are a solemn and binding matter, thus they take their word and their promises very seriously. Like all Fae however, though they may be bound by the letter of the law, they do have a love for word play and bending.


Unseelie Court:

Unseelie Sigil1.gif

The Unseelie rule over the dark half of the year from Samhain (Oct 31) to Beltane (May 1). During this time, their magic has great strength. The Unseelie fae have great respect for passion, change, mischief. They are sometimes helpful to humans, but it’s a toss up. As with all Fae, Oaths are a solemn thing and they are bound by their promises. Be cautious however, the Unseelie are a tricksy sort with a penchant for bending the rules and playing on words in order to achieve their own mysterious ends.
