Quoth the Putti:

“Now, tell me the truth…do you want to fottere? Or do you want to go on a nice date and get to know her? Because if all you want is to get your pene wet, you can keep walking. Make it quick, Power Rangers is on in a few minutes…”

Kith Excerpt:

Come Valentine’s Day, the face of this ubiquitous Stirpe (Kith) graces greeting cards the world over, not just in Italy. Though truth be told, in Italy this Family of Fatae means a bit more. The St. Valentines’ celebrations are a curious hybrid of old Italian Pagan Faiths, and the supplanting of them with the Trappings of the One True Mother Church. The Putti fall somewhere in the middle of these two opposing ideals.

All curiously male, the Putti are the cupidae of antiquity, and are mirror images of the Cherub Angels that the renaissance depicted as fat little angels. The Name Putti itself derives from the Latin word putus – or “boy.” With their cute fluffy white wings, big doe eyes, and chubby cheeks, is it any wonder that so many decided that they were Angels from on high. The Putti are anything but, however.

Due to their ability to alter the relations between individuals, the Putti are much sought after in the Stirpe communities. .Though the Fata (Fae) need act quickly as the Putti don’t last very long. All Putti can lend their skills to the highest bidder, with many of the Lares (Seelie)setting up shop as “match-makers” and “Hitches.” The Silvani (Unseelie) of the Stirpe do the opposite, turning suitors against one another in ugly break ups that bring heartache, tears, and broken homes.



“For this was on seynt Volantynys day. Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.”
– Geoffrey Chaucer, “Parlement of Foules”

“Basic principles: no woman wakes up saying, ‘God, I hope I don’t get swept off my feet today!’ Now, she might say, ‘This is a really bad time for me,’ or something like, ‘I just need some space,’ or my personal favorite, ‘I’m really into my career right now.’ You believe that? Neither does she.” – Will Smith in “Hitch”
