While Faeries are usually depicted as diminutive winged humanoids, there are also stories of a larger subspecies, akin to a shorter human, and some even speak about wingless fairies, though many argue they are a completely different race.

They are known pranksters, and even though they bear no true ill will, the pranks they pull can be quite annoying. Prefering to disrupt the flow of one’s knowledge or memory, Faeries often go too far and this angers others more often than not.

Some also call them Pixies, and there are many funny but also tragic stories surrounding their race and all the pranks they pull during their lives usually tend to make their names known, names like Wonveaco, Dawnwind Schemer, and Ezyrni.
