The Pied Piper is a Light Fae species.
In olden days, the Pied Piper carried a pipe so that mortals would ascribe his power to black magic. If his victims could see him, he took power over them. He fed by transfixing them, making them hear pleasant music and sounds. When he used his power, his facial features blurred and his arms and fingers became long and thin.
He began feeding from both humans and other Fae (against the rules of the Fae universe) for almost a hundred years, causing them to become sick and bleed from their eyes. When he was killed, his latest victims immediately recovered from the effects of his feed.
Robert Hamelin was the Pied Piper. Through the ages, he became also known by two other names: the Erlkonig and Slender Man.
- The Pied Piper of Hamelin is the subject of a legend concerning the departure or death of a great number of children from the town of Hamelin (Hameln), Lower Saxony, Germany, in the Middle Ages. The earliest references describe a piper, dressed in multicolored clothing, leading the children away from the town never to return. In the 16th century the story was expanded into a full narrative, in which the piper is a rat-catcher hired by the town to lure rats away with his magic pipe. When the citizenry refuses to pay for this service, he retaliates by turning his power that he put in his instrument on their children, leading them away as he had the rats. This version of the story spread as folklore.
