The Guardians of the Feri tradition are celestial intelligences of tremendous power who came to us from beyond the stars to teach humankind the arts of magic.

While different lines of Feri have differing views on each of them (including their names and even their number) it is agreed that these ancient beings will come to assist us when they are called, to join, witness, and guard our rites.

From the underworld they come...
Beyond the world of space and time
Deep they are, to the very depth of the universe
And madness is their name.

Some of the most strange and potent beings that are worked with in our tradition are the Goddesses of the Elements. These are beings of primal power that are quite beyond what is normally thought of when one considers the elemental powers invoked in the modern Craft. These deities are said to be older than matter itself, and provide the energetic blueprint for all of creation.
