Is this faerie the same thing as a "red cap"? Red caps were notorious for killing people.


Not according to the Laurell K. Hamilton series of Merry Gentry. In the Hamilton series, they are a cursed, stand-alone type of creature. Cursed in the way of no individual names nor females (thus no children, killing off the race entirely if they die) until a Queen crowned by Faerie itself gives them a name. Also, in this series, the Red Caps are a part of the Goblin culture--only the strongest are able to keep their caps flowing with blood.----CBB1430

I concur, though I don't particularly like using a contemporary book of fiction as a source, as the author's goal is to entertain. In every source I've so far read on the matter, it seems like the fear dearg simply likes wearing red clothing, whereas the redcap "dyes" its clothing using human blood. I've been looking into any possible connections, however. Overall, it seems like the fear dearg is slightly less malevolent. --RPhilbrook (talk) 01:09, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
