Blood King (409)

The Blood King (Trick)

The Blood King is the Blood Sage monarch who used his blood to write the truce that ended The Great War between Light Fae and Dark Fae, and the Blood Laws that govern both clans.

Character arc

Although most Fae are now unaware of his past, Trick was The Blood King.

Dyson has known his secret since the late 1800s, when he and Trick first met and left Europe together for the "New World" (North America). (La Fae Époque)

Kenzi learned it from the Lightning Bird, Gloris. (The Mourning After)

Hale found out the truth from Wai Lin. (Barometz. Trick. Pressure)

When Hale inadvertently discloses Trick's secret to Lachlan, Lachlan kneels before Trick and offers his service as The Ash. The gesture is almost immediately negated by Trick's inquiry whether these are the services of the Naga or 'only' The Ash, showing that secrets abound.

The King wrote a fate with his blood that made the armies of Rainer, the rebel general, turn against him. When Rainer was killed in battle, he erased his existence from Fae history, and damned his soul to spend eternity on the Death Train as punishment. (Destiny’s Child)



Blood King and Isabeau (222) (1)
  • Isabeau: His spouse and The Queen. She died in The Great War when The Blood King's signature was forged on a dispatch ordering assassins to kill her after she went in secret to meet privately with Horvis, the leader of the Dark Fae army, in an attempt to settle the differences between the Light and Dark clans and broker a peace truce. (Flesh and Blood)


  • "You overstate your importance, Vulture. You are nothing more than carrion, a greedy bird pecking at the helpless dead." – to Tamsin, the Valkyrie, about her taking Rainer to Valhalla (Destiny’s Child)
  • "For his defiance. For his arrogance. For thinking he could change the laws of the King. So that he will never rise and take arms against my will again. So that his soul will wander in eternity. For no one will remember his name. No one will remember Rainer, the defiant." – to Valkyrie (Tamsin) before cursing Rainer's soul (Destiny’s Child)
