Deus Ex Machina
The Fen’ri are a strange race of Incorporeal Fey. It is believed they are a magically created race using Fey and the power of Limbo. They exist in Limbo because they are the only creatures that can naturally impose their will on the plane itself to form some sort of stability. They create nests where many individuals live; all are considered family in the nest. ‘Family’ to them means everyone that is them. Fen’ri reproduce asexually and therefore everyone in a nest is a copy of someone else within the nest. Limbo’s influence naturally mutates each offspring to be different than their parent. However, there is a sense of mutual identity inside the nest; as if everyone was the same person with different limbs. Fen’ri have only three term for creatures: Me, Them, and Strangers. Me is everyone in the nest. They have very little concept of individuality and consider me and us to be the same thing. Them is other Fen’ri nests. They do consider other nests to be part of the species and it is not unheard of for nests to merge. Strangers is everything else in the Cosmos. Since nothing inhabits Limbo but the Fen’ri, they have little understanding and ability to interact with other entities. They are quick learners but the world outside the nest makes little sense to them.
Fen’ri are named using four designations. Since they have little use for individuality, they are named only to specifically demonstrate their purpose and place. The first part of their name represents their specific lineage. The second represents their status or position in the nest. The third and fourth designation describes their nest. The Fen’ri understand the designations of other nests because they understand Limbo, but the information is impossible to understand by an outsider. As an example, Kisumiko means she is from the ‘Ki’ family, she assumes the ‘Su’ purpose (matron), and is from the ‘Mi Ko’ nest. There is no he/she in Fen’ri society. Kisumiko calls herself, and identifies herself, as a she because she understood from the Fates that a matron in the material plane was always a she.
