Hi! Sorry if I make a few mistakes somewhere, I'm pretty new to fandom and this is my first post. So this post is about Mor's mother.
Because she doesn't have a page on this fandom, I was a bit unsure about what species of Fae(if she even is Fae) she is. I think it's implied that she's NOT High Fae, because in A Court of Frost and Starlight(I can't reference pages because I read an ebook with adjustable text which switched the pages around) it says:
"The sneering tone. She could still hear the hissed insults beneath it, whispered long ago in her family's private suite, whispered at every meeting and gathering when her cousin was not present. Half-breed monstrosity. A disgrace to the bloodline." (Mass). (BTW, this is Mor's first chapter from her point of view.)
Obviously, since Keir is the Steward of the Court of Nightmares, I don't think that her mother is pure(in whatever sense these people think of "pure) High Fae, as Keir's family has been ruling the Court of Nightmares and I think he was the born heir(instead of marrying Mor's mother), especially as he's the one who's related to Rhysand. Thus, Keir is at least 1/4 High Fae probably, especially as I think he's described as High Fae when we first meet him. (I don't know where, but I think it's implied somewhere).
By this logic, Mor's mother is NOT pure High Fae(or whatever species Keir is). Because Keir seems to be pure High Fae, that means that she's almost completely another species. Of course, she's been around for 500+ years, so that implies that she's Fae. However, she seems beautiful enough, as Morrigan is described as having great beauty. She's also golden-haired and is implied to be High Fae(seems High Fae-like). Of course, this raises the question: Which of Mor's parents is High Fae, which is not, and about the part of her that is not High Fae, what is it?
Then, of course, this makes me wonder how High Fae can have children with other types of fae, and how. Of course, as shown by Nuala and Cerridwen, they can, but how exactly does it work and how are the children perceived by all the other fae? Of course, in Velaris, they must be respected, but what about the rest of Prythian and the Fae lands?
Thank you for listening to me ramble, although I know that this post doesn't really seem to have any direction or point to it; it's just a theory. Thank you!
