"No matter how adept our artistic skill, our effigies can never hope to capture the vibrant beauty of a living elf. Perhaps that is truly why we mourn." -Titania
Affiliation: Seelie Court
Titania and her twin sister the Queen of Air and Darkness, also called Mab, have ruled the Feywild together at least since the foundation of the dwarven empire. Where the Queen of Air and Darkness is the undisputed master of cunning and the embodiment of cold reason, Titania is full of passion and ruled by her emotions. Titania is the queen of summer. Her demesne is Senaliesse, and her seat of power is Astrazalian. Titania leads the seelie court, also known as the summer court and the court of stars, ruling over Oran the Green Lord and his green fey, and over Elias and Siobhan Alastai the Sea Lords and their court of coral.
As the War of Ruin wound toward the close, at the end of the first era, the Queen of Air and Darkness tricked Titania to involve the Fey in the mortal War of Ruin, and champions from both the Empire of Arkhosia and the Empire of Bael Turath were invited to the Starlight Celebration in Shinaelestra to win the support of the Fey. While the Avatar of Io spoke on behalf of Arkhosia, the Heroes of Baldur's Gate spoke on behalf of Bael Turath. Titania found the underhanded politics of Bael Turath repulsive, and favored the honorable draconic folk of Arkhosia.
After Titania and the Queen of Air and Darkness trapped three of the champions in a Feybound contract for their fates, Titania released the Avatar's fate back to Io as a sign of good faith, and offered the allegiance of the seelie to the Empire of Arkhosia. That night, while Shinaelestra slept, the Queen of Air and Darkness commanded the unseelie to murder the seelie and Titania in their sleep. The queen of summer responded by organizing a strong resistance, though the Queen of Air and Darkness was empowered by the Athame, and gradually took the city.
On the hour of the Queen of Air and Darkness' victory, as she closed on Titania, Count Grodd spilled his corrupted blood on the Athame, which had become an anchor between the Feywild, Shadowfell, and the Astral Sea. This corruption spread to each of these realms, unraveling the glamour of the Feywild, reversing death in Shadowfell, and bringing wilderness and death to the Astral Sea. As the Feywild unraveled, many seelie escaped to the Mortal Realm. Though legends persist that the queen of summer escaped, official records maintain that Titania died with the Feywild.
