According to legends fairies are immortal. They only “pretend” to die when they wish to leave someone.

During research for King Eochaidh I came across a very interesting ancient fable or story. It was so old it had been translated four times before being translated into modern English. 

I know it’s commonly taught nowadays that they are not immortals. But according to the original stories about them they are immortals and most were not very nice beings. It’s was their offsprings with humans that aren’t immortal.

I read a story, a very old story where this woman was married to this man who was a fairy and he wanted out of the marriage but didn’t wish to break her heart so he died. Or at least appeared to be dead. So he was buried and moaned by his family but years later resurfaced in another village. His kids found him and dragged him back home to their mother who old and wrinkled by then but they held him capture and wouldn’t let him leave until after their mother’s death. He wasn’t counting on the kids finding him. Apparently according to the story he forget his children had some of his powers. That’s when humans supposedly discovered fairies are immortal and like mermaids lies to get out relationships.


According to legends fairies are immortal. They only pretend to die when they wish to leave someone without all the emotional drama. So seems to me they wanted the person to maintain tender memories of them and not spit every time their name was mentioned.

The ideas of the book came from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. Another thing according to the legend. All doesn’t have pointed ear, aren’t tiny, live in woods and forests nor have magic wands. Some looks like a regular person but happens to have supernatural powers.
