Quoth Le Dona de Fuera:

“Hail mortal, welcome to our Carnavale, please take off your rosary, and the festivities can begin.”

Kith Excerpt:

The inquisition was a heavy force in Italy, and the Fair-folk were weeded out alongside witches, werewolves, and vampires. Some few of those Fair-Folk fell to the torches of the Papal Seat. Some chose to become part of the Holy Roman Church herself, finding great beauty and glamour in the realm of religion. Others, however, had such distaste for what the Church had become that they hurriedly left everything behind to get away. Cities had the churches, and Men had their new faith, and even a handful of their former allies took up the torches themselves. These Fae that left, went outside of everything they knew, and went to wild places where only their passion mattered. These fairies found their true-vocation outside it all. What came back from the forest was the “Ladies from outside”.

This tribe of Cait-Sith now lives solely in the pursuit of hedonistic pleasures. Taking lovers from both mortal and Fae stock, they serve as debauched witches and witches familiars alike. This Stirpe (Kith) represents the upper-heights of passion and lust, like an eternal Hell-fire club, or a bacchanal Venetian ball. Vain, shameless, and not without a certain sum of panache, the Stirpe has more than a passing similitude to the wild-cats of the forest. This semblance is not just in lifestyle, but in appearance. They have 3 fae miens to choose from: a beautiful “Elven form in Ball-gown” meant for seducing, a “Wild-cat” form meant for hunting and mischief, and their “Aydona” form, meant for killing. The Aydona form is an amalgamation of beast and man that puts one in mind of were-beasts.

The Name “Dona de Fuera” literally translates into “women from outside”. This not only applies to outside mainstream Fae-society, but outside mortal perceptions. Their ability to change their form, their mastery of seducing and enthralling mortal lovers, these concepts are what the Donas refer to as Carnavale. This translates directly into “Leaving the meat”, a reference to the last day of lent for mortals, yes. However, for the Donas, it refers more readily into leaving the meat, the body, behind and growing into something, someone new. For mortals to become lovers unafraid, and to give themselves up freely to their passions, for other Fae to lose all pretense and remember what it was to rule openly, even for the Donas themselves, to see truly outside all notions of self-deception, and to see your-self as you truly wish to be, this is what the Donas de Fuera strive for.



“Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go so much further than people with vastly superior talent.”
