Rhys is a former death deity; Cromm Cruach, Crimson Claw. He lost much of what he was during the weirdings that took away many of the sidhe's more dangerous magics, enabling the fey to remain among humans.  Once the magics had been lost, Rhys took up a new identity in order to not be reminded of what he once was.

Rhys - White Knight

He is very interested in film noir and is one of very few sidhe to embrace the modern era. He maintains a residence outside the sithen and loves slang. At five foot six, he is the shortest of the full blooded sidhe, and is self-conscious of his shorter stature and spends more time working out and keeping his body in top condition as compensation.  

Rhys was once given to the goblins as one of the Queen's punishments.  His arrogance and lack of knowledge of goblin customs led to a night of torture which cost him his eye, and is the source of his hatred of goblins.

After Meredith created an extension of faerie in A Lick of Frost, on Maeve Reed's estate, it became possible for her and Rhys to create a new sithen. It appeared as an rundown apartment building in a bad neighborhood, and it was Rhys' sithen

HistoryEdit

Long before he took the name Rhys, even before he was Cromm Cruach, he had another name, one he still refuses to mention.  He had a son, tall and dark haired like his mother, he followed his father into battle.  He was killed by an explosion and iron shrapnel. 

In his rage and grief, the father slaughtered the tribe responsible to the last person, wiping them from history.  When they were dead, he grief was undiminished. When they were all dead, he realized they were no more or less important than his son. They could have produced good men and women, but he had taken away any chance of that, stolen the few short years they might have had.  He was deeply ashamed, so he destroyed his own name, his stories, his history; "He died with the last breath of a people that he destroyed for a mistake that was his own."

PowersEdit

At one time, his powers were such that as Lord of Relics he could cause the dead to rise and have them fight with his troops.

Since the return of wild magic, he can kill with a touch.

WeaponsEdit

Uamhas - Dreaded Death - A sword of unknown powers.
