Changelings are the children of faeries by a human parent. Each changeling's strength is different- rarely, some get a full measure of faerie magic, even more than their parents. These changelings have no limits and are often very destructive.[1] Weaker changelings are more common. This group's gifts vary depending on bloodline. Whatever they can do, they cannot do it as well as a pureblood. They are more emotionally flexible than purebloods, however. Merlins are the weakest changelings of all. They appear human, but can use potions and minor incantations.[2] The tiny amount of magic in their blood combined with human creativity and determination makes merlins very dangerous.[3]

Changelings remain with their parents until they make the Changeling's Choice.[1] Certain parts of faerie, like dawn or goblin fruitaffect changelings more strongly than purebloods because their defenses are weaker.[1]

Most changelings hold a difficult position in faerie society. They are too human to truly belong, but their longevity makes it difficult for them to remain in the mortal world.[4] Many end up holding minor positions at Court.[4]
