A Court of Thorns and Roses Wiki

I will grind your bones between my claws; I will drink your marrow; I will feast on your flesh. I am what you fear; I am what you dread... Look at me. Look at me.'

–The Bogge - A Court of Thorns and Roses

The Bogge is a species of lesser faerie that resides all over Prythian - but was first mentioned in A Court of Thorns and Roses after an appearance in the Spring Court. Only a High Lord (or Lady) has the power and strength required to destroy the Bogge; which becomes a real creature once acknowledged.


The appearance of the Bogge is unknown, as it is not real unless looked at, and was never actually seen in the series.


Like all wicked faeries the Bogge is sadistic and cruel, tricking its victims into acknowledging it so it can kill and eat them.


A Court of Thorns and Roses[]

While out riding with Lucien, Feyre becomes aware of a malevolent presence nearby. She hears the Bogge calling her, but is warned by Lucien—who is scared himself—not to look at the creature. She fights her fear and refuses to acknowledge the Bogge, and it disappears.

Tamlin, after finding out about the Bogge, travels into the forest to kill it, returning successful.


The Bogge's only weakness appears to be the magic and strength of the High Lords.


  • The Bogge may be linked to the Bogeyman (the word bogeyman is believed to derivate from Middle English bogge), which is a mythical creature said to be a non-specific (it has no set appearance) embodiment of terror. [1]
