Quoth the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who:

“Spare change? Spare change? Quarter! Thank you. Thank you… Let me shake your hand…”

Kith Excerpt:

A strange vampirish Yuuri (Kith) from the outback, the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who are one of the creepiest of Australian families in the whole of the Lands. Their little bodies, large heads, and ugly smiles hide the keen and hungry minds of bloodthirsty monsters. It is a wonder that they get on as well as they do. Yet it is a testament to their fortitude that they can, interacting with mortals and Fae both as they deem fit, and gathering their Kwaba (Glamour) as needs must.

If it a question of how they interact with others, one might consider whether the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who gain anything from it. They aren’t stupid, just indifferent. They don’t deal very verbally with mortals, even in larger cities. Most mortals nary give the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who a second glance, assuming them simply lazy, broken, derelicts. The other Yuuri would rather not think of them at all. This puts the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who at a decided advantage, they can go wherever they want, relatively unhindered.

It is important to understand that the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who aren’t evil. They aren’t Adhene or shadow court, or even malicious for all of that. In fact, all their number stems from other Kith fell prey to the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who Curse. The Yara-Ma-Yha-Who make no pretense of their former kiths, that was a lifetime ago. All that matters is now. What the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who are is what they are, bloodthirsty to be sure and assuredly Turong (Unseelie), but not any more so than any other Turong kith. They are also infinitely more honest about it. They have no need to lie.



“Over the course of my life I’ve been to lots of places. Shadowed places where things have gone wrong. Sinister places where things still are. I always hate the sunlit towns, full of newly built developments with double-car garages in shades of pale eggshell, surrounded by green lawns and dotted with laughing children. Those towns aren’t any less haunted than the others. They’re just better liars.” ― Kendare Blake, Anna Dressed in Blood
