Prince Lapis and seven of his brothers are all named after the precious gems from which they derive their powers. No others in the dark fae kingdom have the same name as theirs, as names confer power and too many of the same name dilute the pool.
His True Name has already been given to his husband, a first cousin from the same kingdom. Together they were trapped within San Francisco, where they established themselves quickly with other dark creatures to form a colony within Lux. There is an understanding between themselves and the mafia families in Lux that neither shall invade nor disturb the other. In return, the dark creatures keep other demons at bay and the humans prevent them from being captured.
He uses Faraj as his fixer, borrowing him from Faraj's master occasionally to help him procure interesting humans for his own collection. Lapis prefers able-bodied human males with strong wills to break down, both physically and mentally. He amuses himself by making them dependent on him before cruelly cutting them loose.
Heartbreak is the food of the Dark Gods, after all.
His other favorite food is turtleberries, which are bitter-sour berries encased in a hard shell.
Traditionally lapis lazuli, intense royal blue gemstones, are used to open minds and to give enlightenment, as well as boost mood and enhance emotions and improve circulation.
Twisted lapis lazuli cores allow the fae to control minds and sway emotions. These dark fae can also control blood, giving them the name Blood Weavers within the dark fae kingdom.
