Seelie Romantic Legacies

Empath
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

You are highly sensitive to the moods, wishes and desires of your paramour. If she isn't happy, neither are you.
Top ↑


Friend
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Love is not just a romantic emotion. If a relationship doesn't have mutual respect and friendship at its core, it is not true love.
Top ↑


Ingenue
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Somewhat naïve and wide-eyed, you still see only the wonder and good side of love. Most fae usually pass out of this legacy as they grow older, but not always.
Top ↑


Jongleur
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

You like to keep your lovers (and yourself) entertained. Love is the greatest joy and should be enjoyed to its fullest.
Top ↑


Protector
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Your love is true and you desire to protect him from all the ills of the world. This Legacy is born of noble intentions, but can be suffocating.
Top ↑


Romantic
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Like the Ingenue, but more worldly and experienced. You are often more interested in the idea of being in love than with love itself.

Unseelie Romantic Legacies

Climber
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Love is a method by which you may gain power and status. Potential lovers are just rungs on a ladder.
Top ↑


Competitor
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

You are a romantic Olympian. You judge others by the quality of their consorts and you know they judge you by the same standards. You must be the world's greatest lover, or what's the point?
Top ↑


Cynic
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Jaded and world-weary, you often continue in your romantic overtures out of habit or fear of being alone. You have lowered your sights because you know “true love” can only be found in fairy tales.
Top ↑


Deceiver
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Inherently selfish and callous, love must suit your whims. You realize that most people do not wish for love on these terms, so you disguise your true nature.
Top ↑


Martyr
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

I work so hard to make this relationship work and what do I get in return? Heartache! I didn't expect you to understand.
Top ↑


Gamester
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Love is a grand game, full of danger and excitement. You may have one partner or many, but the affair must be constantly challenging and in motion.
Top ↑


Spy
(Nobles: the Shining Host, p. 65)

Court gossip and intrigue are your meat and drink. Part Climber and part Deceiver, you are interested only in being the best informed about who is doing what to whom.

Shadow Court Romantic Legacies

Analyst
(Shadow Court, p. 26)

You analyze everything that happens during your love affairs. To you, having a lover is not so important as understanding the process of love. How it works, why two people are attracted to one another, what causes them to fall out of love – these are what interest you. On the one hand, this makes you something of a cold fish, someone with no true passions; on the other hand, your lover can expect some unique situations and experimental lovemaking as you use her for your ongoing research.
Top ↑


Heartbreaker
(Shadow Court, p. 26)

You are completely faithful to your one true love – until you find your next one a week or a month later. The classic romantic, you sweep your lovers off their feet, taking them to undreamed-of heights of ecstasy. Then you get bored and move on to greener pastures. You have no understanding of why former lovers should try to cling to you once the magic is gone. How boring!
Top ↑


Obsessive
(Shadow Court, p. 26)

You control every aspect of your relationship. No one else is allowed to take your love's attention away from you, nor will you tolerate flirtations with others. Your lover must be utterly consumed with you, obeying your every wish, working to please you at all times, and forfeiting his own desires in order to fulfill yours. In return, you focus every waking thought on your loved one.
Top ↑


Tormentor
(Shadow Court, p. 26)

You constantly test your lover, seeing how much he will suffer for you. You delight in pushing your partner to new thresholds of emotion and physical anguish. Not content with just whips and chains, you excel in mental cruelty as well. If he stays with you through it all, you know it's for real.
Top ↑


Trader
(Shadow Court, p. 26)

Love is a matter of trade-offs. You total up each expression of it, making certain that you get at least as much as you give (preferably more). Expensive presents, calls to one another, support during crises, paying for entertainment, number of orgasms – all these measures of your love affair must match up or the whole thing just isn't worth your time. You can't be bothered with those who are too self-centered to see to your needs.
