Quoth the Bean-Sì:

“I hear the grief songs of my children, and my children’s children and all the children after. I weep for them; For I have no tears left for myself.”

Kith Excerpt:

The Bean-Sì aren’t Fae anymore. At one time they were – each laying claim to one of the other Tribes and Roths. They lived and loved and accomplished great things in their lives. Or perhaps they didn’t. maybe they were young and their lives were cut short. Or maybe they lived long uneventful lives and eventually faded into obscurity. Perhaps their death bore too much pain or shame to leave behind. Perhaps there were too many songs left unsung. Perhaps they had sung too much and squandered what little time they had. Whatever their sorrow, they couldn’t stay away.

The Summer-lands Realm of the Dead has close borders to the Plane of Towers. The Bean-Sì come back across these edges to continue their affairs. They are now Adhene, those strange and alien creatures that exist hidden in the deepest Dreaming. Halfway between a Dearmad (Wraith) and the Sì she once was, her new existence is one of walking the thin line between the Dreaming and the Underworld

For some reason known only to the Dreaming, only females can make the trip back across the shroud. Where they are welcomed into their new Tribe and choose a new Roth. In their new lives, they watch over their mortal descendants. If she died recently, her family may still be about. If she comes back hundreds of years later, she will seek out mortals living on ancestral lands to watch over. In places where the land rights and castles keeps are tied to certain clans- the Bean-Sì is usually well-known and celebrated if not feared by those clan members.



“Grief starts to become indulgent, and it doesn’t serve anyone, and it’s painful. But if you transform it into remembrance, then you’re magnifying the person you lost and also giving something of that person to other people, so they can experience something of that person.” – Patti Smith
