In these bits of conversation left over from our episode about The Dark Fae, we discuss some minor Dark Fae characters as well as another example of Light Fae exploiting humans similarly to how Dark Fae often have. We also discuss Bo’s position as the unaligned succubus in the Light/Dark system a bit more and the concept of Light and Dark territories as well as clans.
Minor Dark Fae Characters
- Albaster from “The Mourning After” — because of the pro-woman, anti-slut shaming values of the show, the albaster comes across as one of the more evil characters that Bo faces. Similarly, Ba’al in “Faetal Justice” seems very evil because of his exploitation of women.
- Serket sisters in “Table for Fae” — one is perfectly comfortable exploiting humans for profit whereas the other thinks that it’s wrong and ends up turning on her sister.
- Sandman & Mare in “Scream a Little Dream” — use humans as they need
- Brazenwood in “Fae-ge Against the Machine” — supposed to be very lawless Dark Fae territory, but it doesn’t really seem that bad. (There’s chickens!)
Dark and Light Fae Territories & Clans
- Bo’s unaligned status is seen as valuable because she can move throughout the Light and Dark Fae territories.
- The territories are more emphasized in the first and second seasons. How do people know when a Dark Fae in is Light Fae territory? Are they all on Faebook?
- Lauren mentions the idea of branding for different clans in “It’s a Fae, Fae, Fae, Fae World” but we don’t really see evidence of clan branding subsequently.
- The show uses the word “clan” kind of loosely. Sometimes it seems to mean Dark and Light, sometimes it seems to mean different families, and sometimes it seems even to mean different types of Fae.
