Quoth the Misfit:

“Accessories? We got ‘em here somewhere. Your heart’s desire? Sure, kid… you start looking, I’ll catch up.”

Kith Excerpt:

Burnt dolls, and action figures with missing limbs, like forgotten soldiers trying to return home, The Misfits are miserable and broken Fae from the outskirts of Christmas Town. They are born of the desperate, lonely dreams of economically challenged Christmases and broken spirits the world over. They are wretched, dejected, lonely – struggling to find someone, anyone, to play with them.

Some few come from Santa’s own workshop, where they just didn’t pass inspection. Others were kin to the Mannikin branch of the Inanimae, who underwent a harrowing descent into obsolescence. Others come from more nebulous beginnings, clockwork men that time forgot, or forgotten mechanical Arcadian Kiths from far away in the dreaming. Regardless of origins, what remains are lonely fragile things with hardened hearts. With this loneliness, however, comes strength in numbers.

For every toy that doesn’t make the cut, there is another abandoned playthings waiting to provide aid. These damaged Individuals seek out their own by instinctually heading north. There they find others in exile like themselves. They form tight-knit cabals, oath-sworn to each other in their commiserate seclusion. These cabals are friendly enough to each other (as much as possible considering their origins) and are masters of their own dystopic destiny.



“Why am I such a misfit? I am not just a nitwit. You can’t fire me I quit, since I don’t fit in.”
– Johnny Marks, “Why am I Such a Misfit?”
