Quoth the Strix:

“Hello friend, join me for lunch? NO? Well then, maybe later You and I can catch a bite, yes?”

Kith Excerpt:

During the long and bloody accounts of the Greek mythoi, few monsters were as whispered about as the Strix. While not as far-flung as some of the more exotic of the Greek Fae, nor as terrible in mien, they had their own claim to infamy that was just as terrifying. The white-ladies made their own history by being both witches of the highest order, and owl-changers with a thirst for blood and flesh.

The name Strix has etymological ties to both the Italian Stregoi (meaning witches) and the Romanian Strigat (meaning scream), and both are apt titles for this dreaded, yet lovely sorority of occultists. Claiming sisterhood to Athena, Hecate, Nike, Nemesis, and any other number of Grecian Goddesses, their claims don’t go unfounded when one is witness to their powers over the mystical and mysterious.

While they are all eyed with a certain amount of healthy fear, the Strix aren’t above cordial relationships with anyone. This is including mortals, other Grecian Kithain, and even the odd all-female werewolf Tribe that make their home on the Greek Islands. Even an occasional Will-worker may seek out rumors and enjoy a glass of wuzho with the charming young lady in the forest. The Strix can be sympathetic, companionable, and generous with their gifts. When properly approached, they can use their charms for the betterment of all. This is rarely the case however, as so few people still fear them, and their reputation ensures that many always will.



“There is always magic to be summoned at any point. I love to live in a world of magic, but not a fake world of magic. We all really basically have a lot of magic… It’s only those of us who choose to accept it, that really understand it. It’s there for everyone.”
― Stevie Nicks
