About Cillexian Cillèxeon is the official language spoken by the fae from the Cylli Tavon (House Seelie), a group of fairies from different races, but that share a common ancestor (the same primordial dream). The Syè fae, which are mostly royalty, reinforce the use of Cillèxeon, for it implies a high level of politeness, being safe to use in every occasion. An example of a secondary fae language is Pèxa, spoken mostly among the Pèkta fae, but never to address other races, especially the Syè.

Cillèxeon has 3 levels of honorifics:
1) the Cylli form: it is highly polite, usually used to address influential people, wizards and witches, priests, royalty and any Syè fae.
2) the neutral form: mostly everyone that are not the ones cited above.
3) the Vacylli form: used when addressing fae folks from the house Vacylli (descendants from nightmarish thoughts) - it is very much used today, but more open-minded fairies are advocating for adopting a less judgemental treatment towards the Vacylli (after all, not all of them are terrible), and use the neutral form. These 3 forms are related mostly to pronoun use and verb conjugations.

Other features:
- VSO order
- Nominative accusative genitive cases
- 2 noun classes: hacciwa (animate, magical, natural, living things), and pemeff (inanimate, abstract words, dead things). Examples of hacciwa nouns are: fae, water, spell, tree, fruit, love). Examples of pemeff nouns would be: ball, stone, beer...
- Pronoun dropping
- No voiced consonants, except for "V", a letter that used be associated with negative words at first, but ended up being part of a large vocabulary as the language evolved. However b's, d's and z's for example, were never used, as they are perceived as too harsh, and are commonly found in neighbouring languages, such as from the Vacylli Tavon (House Unseelie), which are comprised of different races
