A Court of Thorns and Roses Wiki

I suppose you humans are such hateful cowards that you would have wet yourself, curled up, and waited to die if you'd known beyond a doubt what Andras truly was. Do you ever stop being so serious and dull?

Lucien Vanserra shows Feyre Archeron fairies' little regard for mortals, A Court of Thorns and Roses

Mortals or Humans are those individuals belonging to the human race. Mortals don't possess magic.


Many years before the events of A Court of Thorns and Roses mortals lived in the realms of the faeries as slaves.

Mortals had been forced to build them "glorious, sprawling civilizations" and "temples to their feral gods."

After the War, mortals managed to free themselves and faeries were forced to sign a Treaty that prevented them from enslaving them again and had to create a magical wall that divided the realms of the faeries from the realms of mortals.

Since then, mortals have hated the faeries and the hatred is passed down from generation to generation, as well as the knowledge that is had of this brutal species, such as that the only material that prevents them from healing is the Ash wood, that they hate iron and they can not lie. Many mortals wear iron as protection against Fae.

Of all these legends, only the first one turns out to be true since Lucien Vanserra tells Feyre Archeron that iron does not bother them at all and that they can lie all they want. They had circulated that rumor so that mortals would think that everything fairies say is the truth.
