True Fae Actor: The Snow Princess

Actor: The Silence of a Snowbound Heart

This NPC is a True Fae from Changeling: the Lost that was made for use in my Tatters of the King World of Darkness conversion.  You can read the story of the Snow Princess and the Red Queen over here.  You can read more of my materials, thoughts, and creations in The Tatters of the King campaign list of articles over here.  You can read more about the Fae over here and find more articles from the same campaign over here.


The Snow Princess appears to be entirely carved from a pale blue ice, including a knee-length dress that flairs out, with a rich red heart frozen still within her chest and eyes that glow a cold and terrible blue. 

Storytelling Hints

The Snow Princess is a cold young woman who rarely speaks and will simply stand and watch the festivities of those around her.  Often she seems to give no sign of recognition that someone is speaking with her.  If she places a finger upon their lips, it means that she has chosen them and will take them away with her to her icy realm.  If she does not, then they are left to the Red Queen's tender ministrations.  If met in the outside world, she might simply walk away from a changeling or a human, or slay them outright, or stalk them for weeks.  It's hard to be sure of her reactions or her intensions.  Play her cold, unpredictable, and almost insectile.  She never speaks.
