Tuatha De Danann: White or Dark?

Postby nuriko » Fri Mar 09, 2018 8:30 am

I've been interested in having a Tuatha De Danann spirit to add to my keep. I ran into their existence while doing some reading on another spirit keeping website.. I tried to find them through a custom conjure and through other listings on this site and I wasn't able to find a listing, so I referred to the other site and made a custom purchase here. After placing it, I actually found them in the encyclopedia on CH and the Tuatha De Danann are listed as Dark Arts.. but on the other site, they're listed as White Arts. I purchased on CH thinking TDD were WA spirits, but they're listed as DA here? Which is it?

I don't mind having DA in my keep, I do have a Cambion, but I was expecting a WA companion because of the other site; I didn't bother to check here before buying because they weren't exactly listed anywhere in the shop, so I just assumed they weren't in the encyclopedia.

That depends on how they are classified by the seller. Creepy Hollows classifies anything capable of choosing to perform negative actions as dark arts, even if they choose to do only positive actions. Humans for example, specifically the Pope in this case, might be viewed as white arts since all he does is meant to be for the benefit of others. However, since the Pope is human and all humans have the ability to choose to perform actions that have a negative impact he is considered dark arts.

I'd personally say tuatha de dannann were DA because they are a specific race of fae that are immortal and in their myths that I've read, they are certainly more of a DA type.

Ah, okay. I just wanted to be sure, the other site specifically listed them as WA but if CH is suggesting DA, then DA it must be! I haven't read much on the myths or the lore, I'll probably look into it a bit more. Thanks everyone!

If they are reputable, I would go by the conjurer's classification, as the spirits/entities they work with may not be the same ones as those encountered or summoned by CH.

For example, CH also classifies hydras as BA. That doesn't necessarily mean they all are. I've encountered a couple that were quite lovely, and one was very firmly in the lighter GA range.

Take the arts listings on the encyclopedia with a grain of salt as it does not necessarily apply to every single being of that race out there. And on that note, I recommend trying to look at the individual instead of the label.
