Fomor

     In General 
Old enemies of both Summer and Winter Fae who were banished out to sea, which are one of the supernatural powers that emerged at the end of Changes. They are a hodgepodge of many monsters and pantheons driven into the sea and now adapted to aquatic life. Word of God hints that they are featured in some of H.P. Lovecraft's writings.
  • Arc Welding: There are hints the Formor may have been behind a lot of the action in the series, unbeknownst to Harry.
  • Bioaugmentation: All of them have it in order to survive underwater, and they transform human servants and other "experiments" using the same techniques.
  • Evil Power Vacuum: Moved in fast after the complete destruction of the Red Court.
  • Fantastic Racism: Most of the fomor depicted in the series think themselves far superior to mortals.
  • Fish People: An amalgam of the features and shapes of various aquatic creatures.
  • I Have Your Wife: Or child. Or sibling. Or neighbor. Or pet. Another tactic of the Fomor to get at people. They will use what they can.
  • It Only Works Once: Even if, implausibly, Harry managed to find a ritual curse like the one he used on the Red Court, he wouldn't be able to use it on the Fomor, as they are a number of different races and beings, all brought under the banner of the Fomor, and it wouldn't work.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: The octokongs from Skin Game are definitely Fomor creations, and the guard-animals used by the Denarians are suspected to be.
  • Organic Technology: Most of their weapons look like and appear to be made from undersea organisms.
  • Super Human Trafficking: They've been doing this to cities all over the world. Murphy's rescue op in "Aftermath" was just one of many talent trafficking operations they've done.
  • Villain Team-Up:
    • Their origin. The current Fomor are made up of various monstrous creatures that were defeated by the current supernatural powers and were forced into the oceans to survive.
    • Lord Omogh, who seeks to control Chicago, works with the Corpsetaker in Ghost Story.
  • We Have Reserves: As one servitor tells the Corpsetaker, she may kill him as part of her reply to his lord, but he is inconsequential. There are many more to take his place. That said, he does have a sense of self-preservation and would not like to die in any means that isn't helping his lord.
  • You Will Be Assimilated: What they do to their human minions, resulting in uniform servitors who have little individuality.

     King Corb 

King Corb

The ruler of the Fomor.

     "Frogface" 

"Frogface"

A fomor who collected the minor talents and hedge wizards of Chicago after the Red Court's collapse. Was taken down by Murphy and the Alphas.

     Mag 

Mag

A Fomor sorcerer who was robbed by Justine and who pursued her, ultimately battling John Marcone when he opted to protect her and the baby Justine had rescued from Mag's care.
  • Evil Overlord: He follows pretty much every trope. He makes dramatic entrances, cackles about how his opponents are beneath him, and monologues without end.
  • Killed Off for Real: By Marcone, and with the same bullet that killed Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar, no less.
  • Pride: His main problem. He really thinks Marcone will crumble before his magic. This turns out not to be the case.

     "Froggy" 

"Froggy"

Mag's brother, who planned to gas a treaty signing between the Fomor and the svartalves; Marcone was attending the signing, and Froggy wanted to kill him in revenge for Mag's death. His plans went awry, however, when witch Molly Carpenter and werewolf Andi Macklin intervened.

Human servitors

     "Nothing" 

"Nothing"

A servant of Frogface in charge of collecting minor talents from around Chicago.

     "Listen" 

"Listen"

A servant of Omogh. He acted as a messenger between him and Corpsetaker. He also served Froggy during the attempted gassing of the treaty signing with the svartalves.
  • Blind Obedience: To the point where his only complaint about being killed by the Corpsetaker would be his death wouldn't aiding his lord.
  • We Have Reserves: He fully acknowledges he is this. If the Corpsetaker kills him, another will take his place.
