The world of the gadda is really our world. However, the gadda aren’t human - they’ve descended from different ancestors and as a result, have access to the power of the world around them and can use it to perform what we humans call magic.
They look human. They act human. They live ostensibly human lives. But they are also beholden to the council of the gadda, the bardria, and the rules of the gadda which are policed by the six guardians - Sabhamir, Heasimir, Garramir, Firimir, Coiremir and Ceamir.
The gadda are based in the Irish town of Sclossin, in the county of Leitrim.
The most paramount thing in the life of any gadda is keeping their true identity secret from humans - being known would just be too difficult and dangerous, for gadda and humans alike.
