Quoth the Capcaun:

“Yes, Boss, right away.”

Kith Excerpt:

In the old days, the Căpcăun were something to be feared. These dog-headed beasts, part ogre, part goblin and Iarnă (Unseelie) to a one of them, used to be the most feared monster in the whole of the Land beyond the Forests. They would kidnap a princess, hold a kingdom ransom, take the money, and then eat the princess. They were the worst of the worst, and any and everyone knew it. Time have changed, however, and newer and greater evils have taken their place. Now, they are forever the bridesmaid, never the bride, as it were.

Usually working for somebody older, more powerful, and dastardlier, the Căpcăun have been slowly replaced by new monsters. The Sidhe of the Celtic Lands in particular, often make claims to the Lands. The Zmei of the Fire-bird Empire, even the rare extra angry Fext or Zburător of their own lands will announce their own superiority, and the poor Căpcăun will humbly hold the door for them.

However, it is a grave mistake to underestimate them. They are bad. Their Iarnă pedigree is bad. If there is none there to stand in their way, they may just have a hope of remembering how truly bad they were. Like in the old days, those princesses maybe eaten, and those kingdoms held for ransom.



“Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other and greater ones invariably slink in after it.”
― Baltasar Gracian, “The Art of Worldly Wisdom”
