Quoth the Urisk:

“Do you have to leave already? Please stay, just for a bit longer…. Have some more tea? A scone?… Please…”

Kith Excerpt:

When the whole of the Scottish Wicht (Kith) are placed side-by-side, one can be aghast at the Dreaming-inspired paragons of strength, beauty, and virtue present. From the Fearful Annis Hag, to the mysterious Kirkgrims, and even the light-hearted Shellcoats and their pranks; there are truly awe-inspiring Fae in the Highlands. But not all of these are Dreaming blessed… some are just miserably friendless strangers who spend their lonely existence pining away for company.

The Urisk, or Ourisk, is such a Fae, a paragon of kowtowing solitude and a neverending need for companionship that will never show, Dreaming be damned. The Urisk sits in his isolated property, maintaining a piece-meal home-stead with the hope that each day might be the day that friends will come. Each day proves as fruitless as the last. Even if they do receive a visitor, their toadying nature quickly negates any chance of lasting friendship.

Why would anyone want to even bother heading out that far to garner the attention of such a dejected miserable lot? Because they have a lot to offer. They are fast, strong, and know the wild places better than most. They are loyal to a fault, and as long as somebody can force a smile around them, they will gladly bend over backwards to ensure that their guest is happy. It is all too easy to manipulate the Urisk in simple exchange of an extended hand of friendship.



“When he awoke it was dawn. Or something like dawn. The light was watery, dim and incomparably sad. Vast, grey, gloomy hills rose up all around them and in between the hills there was a wide expanse of black bog.”
― Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
