The Shadow Roads are Tybalt’s secret pathways. The Court of Cats has no precise location, and is connected by the Shadow Roads, accessible only by the Cait Sidhe and perhaps by actual cats.

History / BackgroundEdit

"Those who are notborn to the Court of Cats find no succor in our places. The cold that chills me freezes them; the air that devils me evades them entire. On the rare occasions that one who is not of our get has been brought to travel through the shadows, they have emerged on the other side frozen and gasping—assuming they emerged at all. People have been lost, who entered the shadows when they do not belong there.

Such transits are exhausting for the Cait Sidhe who guides them; the magic of the road barely notices our own travels, but takes great interest in those not of our Court. I have even heard whispers of Cait Sidhe who have died in consequence of leading strangers through the dark, spilling their vitality so completely onto the Shadow Roads that what should have been commonplace turns fatal"[1]

"[Firstborn, Queen] Erda, who had been the first to anchor the Shadow Roads, and without whose blood we would be unable to reach them."[1]
