First, some definitions:

  • Myth - story or word. The word myth entered into the English lexicon in the early 19th century from Latinmythos which came from the Greek muthos, literally meaning story or word.
  • Mythology - the body of collected stories of a group of people such as the ancient Greeks, Romans, Mayans, etc., or the study of such.

That being established, it cannot be said whether or not all, some, or parts of different mythologies are true or not. It is generally believed by literary, linguistic, and anthropological experts that there is some truth in mythologies, that they rose out of actual events, but that the stories convoluted or changed over time. As is true for human nature, as stories are passed, subsequent generations tend to embellish. Embellishment after embellishment on top of embellishment can make for a very grand tale.

Why are other religions labeled mythologies?

A:It is traditional for the Abrahamic religions to refer to most other religions as mythologies. A myth is really a legend with a supernatural reference, and these are also to be found in the Bible and Koran. When we use the term 'mythology' in respect to religion, we should either use it for all religions without exception, or for none at all.

Almost all of the fae subspecies - and many of the plot devices, for instance the cursing nail - have some precedent in various mythologies. One of the very few exceptions are Mesmers, such as Vex, but otherwise practically all have some root in legends or fairytales. The show gives them all their own spin, but all mythologies evolve and you'd be surprised just how true to the tone of old Celtic mythology in particular that the show often falls.
