Quoth the Muryan:

“So then, she says to me, the Princess that is, ‘Ew, a Toad! Why can’t you do a Rabbit again?!’ To which I replied, ‘It’s
complicated your highness. Now can you kiss me and bring me back, or what?’ … She didn’t.”

Kith Excerpt:

There is an old belief that the Fairies were too good for Hell, but not good enough for heaven. Sent to dwell on earth until something else happened, for a thousand years of life, they would dwindle and dwindle away in size, becoming less and less. With no afterlife awaiting them, they would simple fizzle away into nothingness. The odd Tribe of Muryan reflect this belief, though in an equally odd manner.

Though originally hailing from Old Cornwall, Muryan is the Welsh word for Ant. This is testament to a perpetually diminuating Fae, but not unbenevolent, family whose very existence is predicated upon how many times they utilize their powers.

Though such a short duration on this mortal coil would cause other Crimbil (Kith) to horde their abilities, and never changeform- The Muryan instead celebrate every change and laugh at the side-effects that leave distinctive markings on their appearance. To exist means to experience change and the Muryan enjoy their changes more than anyone.



“The universe, worlds beyond number, God’s silver tapestry spread across the night. And in that moment, I knew the answer to the riddle of the infinite. I had thought in terms of man’s own limited dimension. I had presumed upon nature. That existence begins and ends in man’s conception, not nature’s. And I felt my body dwindling, melting, becoming nothing. My fears melted away. And in their place came acceptance. All this vast majesty of creation, it had to mean something. And then I meant something, too. Yes, smaller than the smallest, I meant something, too. To God, there is no zero. I still exist!” – The Incredible Shrinking Man, 1957
