F A I R Y Fata elvii
Race: Pygmy Elf
Other names: Pygmy Elf, elf, Hada, ancestors, forefathers, faery, faerie, Pixie, fay, fae; nymphs; euphemistically wee folk, good folk, people of peace, fair folk, etc.
A Fairy in Aiers has different meanings, as the mythological creatures (often winged) the elves look so often around, trying to discover, to cover as well the artificial creations they did after how they imagined these creatures, in their frustration of not being capable of finding the creatures of their tales.
The "Fairy" doesn't have a denomination to themselves, and if they learn to speak other languages (rather infrequently) they refer as themselves as "we-people" as in "we the people".
They are shorter than dwarves (estimate: 85 - 95 cm tall), have proportionately huge, pointed ears, proportionately large eyes, and are about the size of small green goblins with small, pointed teeth, (goblins are their other cousins along with elves). They come in all the ranges of colors of the elves (green, pink, purple, blue, white, black) and of goblins (red, brown, yellow, orange), they have some of the stronger means of natural manipulations of magic.
Because of this, elven investigators often theorize about the possibility of the "fairy" to be the ancestors of modern elves.
The "Fairy" seems to have extended in prehistory across much of Aels and into parts of Hieyoks, but in later historic ages, they lived mostly in central Aels and the great forests of Aels, as Nubla and Bierteno.
They lived in familiar groups, and often wandered alone, they hid from the view of strangers normally, but occasionally liked to appear in front of them, attracted by shiny things, music or food.
They visited in such occasions people of all races (elves, goblins, humans, dwarves, orcs, kanov, etc), ignoring any danger. The visited people, surprised, often left the small pygmy elves to roam free, playing and touching, curiously, everything, in a peaceful contact (but sometimes a bit bothering, due to their tendency to pick and take things). For the ones who tried to do them harm, often they were surprised how difficult to catch a fairy can become.
Despite of that, sighting them was extremely infrequent, and they only had regular contacts with the green Leaf elves -the dryads- (Mourlicoun) who had a very similar lifestyle.
