Quoth the Alb:

“Hey, I said HEY! I’m talking to you. You’re ugly. I just wanted you to know. Now scram, I’m tired of talking to you.”

Kith Excerpt:

Also known as Alp, Trud, Mar, Mart, Mahr, (much to their Sister-Tribe Mora’s chagrin) Schrat, and Walrider, the Alb is perhaps the most notorious of all the Cait-Sith families. Teufel-Leute (Unseelie) to a one of them, these catankerous ne’er-do-wells are masters of dissension and turmoil. And they like it.

Like all the Cait-Sith Tribes, the Alb aren’t Fairies that turn into cats, they are cats that turn into fairies. However, very few outsiders understand this about the Alb. In fact, their name itself is a German pronounciation of ELF. This misunderstanding is a perfect tool for misdirection, and many an Alb utilize this to no little end. It is all too easy to wait for the ugliness to hit, and then point at the stranger/victim, all the while posing as that tired and worn tabby at the foot of the bed.

While almost exclusively Male, the Alb’s methods of infiltration is remarkably similar to their aforementioned sister-Tribe Mora’s modus operandi. The major difference is that the Alb are by no means cute, fluffy, or even remotely pleasant. They are nasty, capricious, and bitter about their lot in the world. And they enjoy sharing that ugliness with everyone.



“Cats don’t need to be possessed; they’re evil on their own.”
