Quoth the Diabhal:

“Say friend, that’s a mighty nice song you’re whistling. Can I have it? Your whistling, I mean.”

Art Of The Diabhal:

All Diabhal know the secret Art of Cutting Heads.

Kith Excerpt:

Long ago, before even the Dream was split from its reality, the Fair-Ones struck a deal with the Most beautiful and Most proud Son of the morning. In exchange for something now long forgotten, the Fair Ones would present souls once every seven years or so. This was known as the Teind.

Perhaps this is where the Kith known as the Diabhal (pronounced Jowl) originate. Diabhal are dark and twisted, yet charismatic Fae with just the right amount of pluck. They can be gregarious and dashing, but also enticing in the way that only dark things are.

They encourage the worst in others to seek out the Dreaming’s Dark-side. In this they use the GAME, a series of contests, bets, or musical ventures, in order to gather pieces of a target’s true-name. Over time, little things, like a favorite song, or eye-color, add up. Once a Diabhal has enough of these, he can seize control over a person’s essence for his own dark purposes (see Cutting Heads, page XXXX). What the Diabhal does with these names has never been discovered, but it just may be that the Fae still owe the teind to Hell, and the Diabhal are the only ones left to pay it
