Quoth the Jentilak:

“Please, don’t come up here. This is my home further on, and there is nothing there for you to see.”

Kith Excerpt:

The Jentilak are a race of Pre-Christian Giants that live high in the Pyrenees. Their name supposedly derives from Gentile – the old word for Un-Christian. But other Panelinha (Kith) will explain today that it simply refers to how gentle this Beato (Seelie) family is. As they have since the invasion of Roman forces all those centuries ago, the Jentilak prefer to stay up where it is quiet and still. They choose quiet mountain homes far away from the towns below, rarely getting involved in Encantare (Fae) politicking.

They should rightfully be considered Pagão (Unseelie), as the noise and business of the Holy Mother Church chased the poor giants up the mountain. Yet it didn’t actively seek to eradicate them. Most Jentilak even appreciate the peace and serenity of Catholicism. But that doesn’t mean they’d come down their safe quiet mountains for Mass.

From the moment of chrysalis, the Jentilak seeks someplace where the business of mortal life won’t harangue them. They prefer solitude, even from each other much of the time. Even if they do make a few friends with the mortal farming communities up high in the mountains (which often serve as the Dreamers background) these mortals are usually the only other group the Jentilak chooses dealing with.



“Blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to judge.”
– Paulo Coelho
