Alright, after talking to Malady and since Kristin prefers canon statements be made here, I'll be willing to answer a few questions related to the expansive mythology regarding Scald-Crow.

To clarify, I do have my own lil Lore Bible for my work, I keep it to keep consistency in my works. And I have access to some of the OG lore to make things consistent. None, of my answers, will be spoilers - you still have to figure out my plot hooks on yer own. AKA - I reserve the right to decide to make you guys wait to read it :D

Have at it.

Something that isn't Faerie but still important... "Is Scald-Crow a Faerie, like how Fey is a Sidhe?"

Much like how the Fey on the wiki is used to roughly describe a bunch of inter-related Sidhe species and other western court types, Faerie is used in a few different ways.

There is Faerie the realm, Faerie the group of spirits who all share a common origin.

Scald-Crow is becoming like Morgan, who like the Aes SIdhe made a lot of the uppercrust of the Western Court. There are other castes of sidhe species as well each with their own pecking order in the various Courts and lands of Faerie.

The Quad is primarily focused on OOC discussion. Moving this thread down to concept discussion/Q&A.

So Fairies and Sidhe are sort of like Homo Sapiens and Neanderthals? Or should I try and think of a comparison that can't interbreed?

Noble Fae are descended from the Sidhe and others like them. They usually call themselves Áes Síobraí.

More like Humans and Homo Erectus, Sidhe being the latter.

Here's a fun question: Which race has the bigger ears, Sidhe or Fae?

So there are at least 4 if not more "Faere Races". The main guys are the Aes Siobhrai, singular Siobhra. Basically anglicized as Shreevie and Shreeva.

An Aes Siobhrai have much more pronounced ears. I drudged up some pics from Pinterest to illustrate.

To me Sidhe:


To me Aes Siobhra


Some clans / Houses also have horns or antlers:


Since Grainne's been told what species Morgan is now I'll be referring to her as a Siobhra, cuz that's what she is.

cool, that fits with how I've been picturing them. I was trying to figure out how much ear growth to give a transforming neo-Sidhe.
