- Lurigadaun (sing., pl. and adj.)
- Luri is derogatory. Wee folk and fair folk are archaic/demeaning. Fairy, inflammatory.
- Lurigadaun are descended from a branch of humanity isolated on the island of Thurmun'dhl during prehistory. In ancient times, 'Dhl was one of the most magically volatile regions on the globe. The mutagenic effect of this both accelerated evolution and took it in bizarre directions. Lurigadaun are one of a whopping dozen sentient races native to the area, humanoid and non, including kelpies, banshees, pookahs, and faoladh. Humans returned to 'Dhl for good about two thousand years ago, and the various races have a long history of stand-offs. Relatively recently, say, the 17th century, relations thawed and in many places humans and lurigadaun have been working and living in tandem sinc

Lord Regalus Dnavyon is the incumbent king of Kreev.
Kreev is vast, cold, resource-rich, and usually at odds with Network nations. It's also been a constitutional monarchy since Regalus' great-great-grandfather signed away his bloodline's divine right in exchange for his head.
That fellow's son-in-law, the following king, found himself tasked with charming a kingdom infuriated and embarrassed by a run of clumsy, erratic, inbred rulers, questioning if the crown had run its worth entirely. It was a game he was made to play. By his own son's coronation day, the king was no longer an untouchable god... he was a human being. He was loving, warm, fatherly, and nothing like those nasty, bickering, self-serving politicians who'd say anything to keep their jobs. The king was above that. So long as the monarch is assured his place on the throne he will be the government's unbiased heart.
Regalus' grandfather had an easy reign. An oil-hungry world steadil
Notes on Cornelius as a ShapeshifterA reminder. Cornelius was originally human. He ran afoul of a form-destroying virus which malfunctioned, mutating his body into a genetic hodgepodge of all former hosts of the virus, including himself. Although he's now apparently a monster thing, the virus left his original code intact. Each of his cells contain double DNA strands, one human and one glatni. He's able to express either set at will. But there are lots of catches.Notes on Cornelius as a Shapeshifterin The OCs, Written Stuff

Just keep in mind that 'unshifted', 'normal', 'actual' Cornelius is glatni, 'shapeshifted' Cornelius is human.
By definition, anything 'magical' that happens in the Network works in conjunction with the nearby dimension, which has different physics. In Cornelius' case, this foots the bill for his change in mass. When he transforms, his shifting field (an area around him pushed drastically nearer the other dimension, temporarily allowing crazy things like all your cells changing at once without killing you) yanks/pushes a whole load of extra matter into/out o
