Gramarye & Regret
Half-Lifers are hobos, bums, down-and-outs, beggars, twilight workers and drunks who wander into and out of the shadow world of changelings and faeries. They can perceive the true mien of a changeling, can see most of the fae and have a dim understanding of fae ways in London Below, but they can also interact with regular humans and maintain a partial, derelict existence in London Above. They are ensorcelled mortals who have lost their sanity or most of their clarity and exist on the fringes of society, incapable of being productive members of the world of mortals and yet not suffused enough by Glamour to exist fully in the world of changelings. Outsiders to the core, they eke out a mean existence on streets and in the byways of the world, waiting for their chance at the big time. That chance rarely appears.
