Changelings are the children of a pairing between a human and a fae. While they can pass as human when born, they have access to their fairy parent’s powers. Each time they use these powers, however, they take a step closer to their fairy nature. this leaves them with a more fairy appearance and a much more fae-like nature. In the end, most changelings end up fully fae, tending to migrate to the nevernever because they cannot pass as human any more.
Musts : A changeling must have a high concept that shows his fairy parentage. This parentage carries with it the weaknesses of the fae. Vulnerability to iron, bindings to gift exchanges, the inability to lie, etc…
