Tybalt is the King of the Court of Cats in San Francisco. He became their King by right of blood and he’s held the position by beating the crap out of anyone who tries to take it away.

Biography / BackgroundEdit

Tybalt's background in London is explored in Rat-Catcher and Forbid the Sea.

Julie is the reason Tybalt dislikes October so much. There were many hostile encounters growing up in the Summerlands with Tybalt with him ending up saying he's be happy to gut her if not for her mother. Julie left Tybalt's court and followed Toby to Home and he blamed Toby because she was the smart one. [1]

About Edit

Abilities, Powers, Skills Edit

  • "Royal," among the Cait Sidhe, is a measure of strength of magic. A royal Cait Sidhe must be able to travel the Shadow Roads without hindrance; carry others with them; transform from cat to human and back again, without any unwanted traits bleeding over from one shape to another; cast basic illusions; open doors between the deepest Court of Cats and the Summerlands; create Courts by hewing small spaces out of the Shadows and keeping them open, essentially as temporary shallowings, until they are no longer needed; command loyalty; and die and come back. This is not a comment set of skills. Most Cait Sidhe can access the Shadow Roads, cast illusions, and change forms...but not all of them. Some Cait Sidhe are always bipedal, or always cats. Some Cait Sidhe have tails in their human forms, or no tails in their cat forms. And so it goes.[2]
  • "…all I could do was stare, open mouthed. I’d never seen the King of Cats fight before. He was suddenly everywhere, made of nothing but fangs and claws and fury, snarling like a chainsaw trying to sing opera."[1]
