Blacksmiths

Blacksmiths were considered to be partly descended from the Sidhe due to their great skill in transforming metals into usefull objects such as swords and daggers.  Many people believed they could cast a spell or a powerful curse and therefore should be held in awe and respected.  It was also believed that they had healing powers.
