Quoth the Daoine-Sì:

“Come along, friend! Dance as if we were the last two people on Earth and sing as if everything you ever loved was long gone! Doesn’t that sound free and good?”

Kith Excerpt:

Some whisper that the Daoine-Sì are the Boggan-Gods of antiquity. Indeed the Grey-elves might be the only Tribe close to what might be called commoner. They forgo the regality of the rest of the Seacht tribes, instead opting for creature comforts of wine, song, and romance. Their love for feasting, dancing, music and merry-making all revolve around the annals of comfort. Yet the Boggans understand moderation, while curbing one’s excesses is anathema to the Daoine- Sì.

Most outsiders assume that such disdain for temperance is the hallmark of the Samhain half of the Seacht. The Daione disagree. There is nothing evil or malevolent or even Unseelie about partying until your legs fall off. That is the glory of Magh Tuireadh- the Plains of Joy. What is a life uncelebrated? For this reason Old Irish mortals know the moniker of this Tribe… the Good People.

But such goodness does come with a price. The Daoine Tribe doesn’t fully understand the need for restraint that keeps mortals safe. While in Magh Tuireadh it is fully acceptable to dance until one falls unconscious, the world of men has much needed limits. Any Daoine may hear, even begin to think about it. But they would be hard pressed to believe it. What really matters is that everybody is happy. In war, in Death, in heart-ache- one has to keep dancing and singing and feasting until there is nothing else…



“Here come bad news, talking this and that (Yeah)
Well, give me all you got, and don’t hold it back (Yeah)
Well, I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine (Yeah)
No offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why…”

– Pharrell Williams, “Happy”
