Quoth the Monociello:

“Do not worry little Mortal, no monster can hurt you here in the Lord’s House.”

Kith Excerpt:

One of the Italian Stirpes (Kith) that has managed to not just survive in the shadow of the Church, but to thrive well within its hallowed light. The Monociello, or little monk, was quick to the see the glory (and Glamour) that poured forth from that glorious conceit that is Catholicism. The magnificence of a stain-glassed window, the divine refrains of a chorus, the austere reverence of a penitent Catholic: The Monociellos often wondered why no one else could see what they did.

Not that the Monociellos are all that austere. Far from it, they are still Fae after all. Incorrigible tricksters, the Little Monks are the abbey-lubbers and buttery-spirits of days gone by. They cannot abide greed (not counting themselves, of course, the Greed in others) and will harangue a drunken mortal priest until sunrise, (although, if a fellow Monociello imbibes a bit, who does it hurt?). While their jokes are harsh, they are not mean-spirited, and even the most Silvani (Unseelie) wishes only to teach a lesson.

Every one of the little red-men of the clothe have their own church in which to serve. They thrive in the opportunity to not only serve the Lord (which they believe in and venerate with great passion), but also to serve their fellow Stirpe. Even Pamarindo are welcome (on special cold-iron pews set aside just for them). This is why the Monociello have done so well. They see no war between old world and new, just a bridge built on faith that will carry all the Italian Fata into the future.



“There are not over a 100 people in the U.S. that hate the Catholic Church,
there are millions however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church.
Which is, of course, quite a different thing.”
— Fulton J. Sheen
