Chastity VonFae is a fairy born to King Cadeyrn and Lady Faelan of County Clare, Ireland. Her story: We lived peacefully. We shared our land with the human family O'Deas. We lived without incident till a new human king built his castle on our land and claimed it his. The O'Deas fled to a new land.known as America. As the O'Deas had kept us secret and safe I was charged with their safe travels to this new land: My father turned me to a mermaid and sent me into the sea. After a long journey we arrived. I had met many Mer People and had become part of their family, but I missed flying. In my fairy family, we did not have wings but our magic was strong and flight was easy. I changed myself back to a legged form but I was not the same. I no longer had the magic of flying. I was not terribly saddened as I had fallen in love with the water, my new family and the beautiful sights of the ocean. Over the years I have missed flying, and so took to climbing the rigging of ships. I became skilled in stunts. It was the closest I could come to flight. I have since learned many ways to be in the sky again. Watch me soar!
