Quoth the Foireux:

“Les Margotine? Yes, I’ve slept with them. The same could be said of some of the Sidhe, and Swan-Maidens for all of that. Doesn’t matter. Because while I have been all up in that, I am still here, and they are still in their towers. I’d rather be down here, mind. I don’t have to put on any airs down here.”

Kith Excerpt:

The Foireux are the French Dreaming’s dark response to Les Margotine. They are bitter and stray alley-cats with ragged torn ears and yellowed teeth yet coupled with raw sensuality and dirty sexiness. They represent the Cat’s dreams of abandonment, but the pluck to rise above it. When one especially considers the destruction and bloodshed left by the French Revolution, it is no small wonder the Foireux Kith is so adamantly existent, as well as Croque Mittaine (Unseelie).

But not just France, the Foireux can be found in any place where turmoil is the norm. They are especially prolific in places where Cats are considered bad luck or cursed. Greece, Prague, even in overly superstitious Scottish hamlets and villages. Though, if one has to find them, then the dark and seedy underbelly of France would be the easiest place to seek them out.

Despite their bitter pedigrees, the Foireux carry themselves with a certain regality that seems better befit for their sister/lover Lutin (Kith) of Les Margotine. They have a quiet strength, and a cunning wit that can only be borne by those who truly understand survival. While most of the Cait-Sith spend their time politicking and back-stabbing, the Foireux spend their time ensuring they survive to see the morrow.

“Anyone who believes what a cat tells him deserves all he gets.” ― Neil Gaiman, Stardust
