This is because their culture requires human labor to function, but the humans are only kept for a very short time and are paid for their work. The Seelies are, at the least, tolerant of humans, and usually kind and friendly — as the Fae would define it The Pouka, who is more familiar with humans than most, does say they have been "unkind" to mortals in the past. They're even capable of falling in love with humans as humans would recognize love.
The Unseelies are malicious and nasty, and think nothing of twisting a mere mortal to their ends. Summer is generally more benevolent, while Winter is more malicious. They're obsessed with obligations — everything, from food and drink to information, has to be traded for, and there is no going back on a deal with the Fae. Accepting gifts from the Fae is a very bad idea, as it means you are in an undefined debt to them, and giving them a gift is seen as a horrible insult. They are very vulnerable to anything with iron in it, and see its use as incredibly cruel.
They Cannot Tell a Lie , but that's far from saying they're truthful; very careful attention needs to be paid to Exact Words when dealing with the fae, since they love Loophole Abuse. Any Fae can also be summoned by speaking its name three times. They will answer the summon, but may not be the happiest of beings to be summoned. Even the Summer Fae have a rather alien outlook on things like morality. Aurora thought it was a good idea to let the Courts destroy one another for the sake of breaking the balance between them, despite the massive destruction and death this would cause, because it would mean the end of fairy meddling in mortal lives forever Titania has no problem ordering her soldiers to destroy Dresden even while she is technically indebted to him, purely for the sake of preventing Dresden from saving Marcone on Mab's instructions; from Titania's perspective, if Mab wants Marcone saved, she wants him not to be saved although there is also the fact that she has little enough love for Dresden in the first place since he killed her daughter, even though she was trying to destroy the Sidhe.
The best way to sum up the Summer morality is that while it can include kindness, it is by no means defined by it. Among the Winter Court She might have a valid point there And Maeve once ordered monsters to attack Chicago as part of a Batman Gambit because she was worried that the Faerie Courts hadn't moved against the Red Court because of Mab's bizarre behavior , leading to a chain of events that saved a significant portion of the White Council. Santa Claus is Winter.
The one mention of Santa so far says trapping him in a circle is something nobody would ever dare try, but it in no way suggests that he's a Bad Santa. But it makes perfect sense — He's known to be active on December 25th, and the Courts' power shifts with the seasons, after all. The power it would take to be Santa, or to be the reality that Santa is based on Santa represents generosity in a time of bleakness.
Within them, they show the traits not often seen in their Queens Kringle's benevolence against Mab's cold demeanor and Erlking's love of hunt to Titania's compassion. Also, while the author has referred to them as Kings of Summer and Winter, they are not part of the Courts. They are in no way obligated to follow Mab or Titania. Instead, they're Wyldfae lords of their own domains. The best way to sum it up might be that style is more important than substance in this case; for example, two fairies come across a hobo, and in a fit of benevolence, decide to help him.
One gives him a banquet, a bath, some nice warm clothes, the works. The other harangues him, makes his life hell, and forces him to clean himself up, get a job and stand on his own two feet. In this case, both have made an effort to help him, but the first one would be called to Summer in a time of war, while the other would be headed Winterwards. A bit more insight into the nature of the fae is revealed in Cold Days. The purpose of the Winter Fae is to fight off incursions by Outsiders , and without them all reality would be destroyed.
The Summer Fae in turn protect reality from Winter. It should also be said that even mortals can become a Fae.

Mortal women anyway. If a woman has a heart that is closely aligned to either Summer or Winter and one of the six Queens Queen Mother, Queen, and Lady is permanently killed, the mantle could travel into her if one of the Queens of that side is not close or the Queen picks that woman, she will become the new Queen, even if she doesn't want to. On the matter of one's house, in Cold Days it is said the Fae can enter a person's home uninvited. However, they are bound by the laws of Hospitality and so cannot leave the estate in a worse condition than when they entered Harry's brownie cleaning service entered to clean his untidy home and do laundry many times.
Even if they are attacked by the owner of the house, they cannot attack back. The Fae would likely leave and wait until the owner is not protected and then respond to the attack. In The Mortal Instruments , fairies are rarely trustworthy. Although they cannot lie, they are masters of evasion. They also have a definite sadistic streak and will ally with good or evil depending on where they think their interests are best served. Simon: They can't be worse than vampires, and you did all right with them. Jace: All right? By which I take it you mean we survived? Simon: Well Jace: Faeries are the offspring of angels and demons, with the beauty of angels and the viciousness of demons.
A vampire might attack you, if you entered its domain, but a faerie could make you dance until you died with your legs ground down into stumps, trick you into going for a midnight swim and drag you screaming underwater until your lungs burst, fill your eyes with faerie dust until you gouged them out at the roots— Clary: Jace!
Shut up. That's enough. Jace: Look, it's easy to outsmart a werewolf or vampire. They're no smarter than anyone else. But faeries live for hundreds of years and they're as cunning as snakes. They can't lie , but they love to engage in creative truth-telling. They'll find out whatever it is you want most in the world and give it to you — with a sting in the tail of the gift that will make you regret you ever wanted it in the first place.
They're not about helping people. More harm disguised as help. Can you wonder that the People of the Hills don't care to be confused with that painty-winged, wand-waving, sugar-and-shake-your-head set of impostors?

Butterfly wings, indeed! I've seen Sir Huon and a troop of his people setting off from Tintagel Castle for Hy-Brasil in the teeth of a sou'-westerly gale, with the spray flying all over the Castle, and the Horses of the Hills wild with fright. Out they'd go in a lull, screaming like gulls, and back they'd be driven five good miles inland before they could come head to wind again. It was Magic — Magic as black as Merlin could make it, and the whole sea was green fire and white foam with singing mermaids in it.
And the Horses of the Hills picked their way from one wave to another by the lightning flashes! That was how it was in the old days! Granny Weatherwax : You call yourself some kind of goddess and you know nothing, madam, nothing. What don't die can't live. What don't live can't change. What don't change can't learn. The smallest creature that dies in the grass knows more than you. You're right. I'm older.

You've lived longer than me but I'm older than you. And better'n you. And, madam, that ain't hard. Then he began to gaze about and saw within the walls a rout of folk that were thither drawn below and mourned as dead, but were not so. For some there stood who had no head, and some no arms, nor feet; some bled and through their bodies wounds were set and some were strangled as they ate, and some lay raving, chained and bound, and some in water had been drowned; and some were withered in the fire, and some on horse, in war's attire, and wives there lay in their childbed Against my will we passed under the shades of Moria, to our loss.
And now we must enter the Golden Wood, you say. But of that perilous land we have heard in Gondor, and it is said that few come out who once go in, and of that few none have escaped unscathed. These are strange days! But if you have her favour, then you also are net-weavers and sorcerers, maybe. His movement was so abrupt that his friend asked him, with a mild stare, what was the matter. It isn't only nice things that happen in fairyland.
I am for pushing on now and seeing what does really come. We may die and rot before we ever see again such a moon or such a mood. I only said it was always dangerous. Fairies are never ill. They have immortal bodies, but no souls. If they see you in pain, they simply think you are flaunting your superiority and your immortal soul in their faces. Live-Action TV. Game of Thrones : Both the Children of the Forest and the White Walkers live beyond the Wall and have been there since the Long Night, though no one is really aware of this below the Wall. The White Walkers are malevolent magical creatures who take human children offered to them, reminiscent of changelings.
As far as the Walkers are concerned, they weren't always like this.
The first White Walker was a human that the Children performed some sort of ritual on to turn him into the Night's King, making them Was Once a Man humanoid abominations in addition to this.
