Despite our environment appearing to operate on automatic under the scientific physical laws of our Universe there is in fact a plethora of nature deities who keep our Universe in operating order. These include Gods, Goddesses, Nymphs, and of course Fairies. A Fairy, Faery, or Faerie, is a low level nature spirit with a mostly human like appearance that manages specific aspects of any given environment. In magical power they fall under nature Nymphs who they sometimes work with. Nymphs are known to manage seasons, forces of nature, landforms, bodies of water, general wildlife & plant life in local areas. Fairies handle more specific aspects of localized nature. They in essence act as mystical micro-managers who get more hands on than other deities. This mainly includes specific species of plants, and animals along with physical aspects of the environment. It can also include localized phenomenon such as weather. Some even independently create new duties for themselves such as in the case of Tooth Fairies.
Despite being called spirits they don’t have an invisible non-corporeal, or out of phase
with human reality, form such as Nymphs. They actually exist in nature as supernatural biological beings among the animals, and must hide like any other physical beings to an extent. Thankfully they possess the magic of nature which aids in them remaining hidden. This constant physical state of being is their greatest vulnerability yet it gives average humans a chance to catch a glimpse of them. Along with magic they have the advantage of being quite small which makes for easy nature concealment. The smallest fairies might not even be visible by the human eye while the largest fairies are the size of a robin.
Their most known physical feature is their wings that can come in a variety of designs. Most commonly butterfly, and angelic wing designs that appear translucent with various colors of glitter sprinkled upon it. Gold is the most common color. Interestingly enough these mystical wings are in the only part of their body that are made of astral metaphysical energy. Although when in flight they take on a metaphysical matter form. Hence the despicable ingredient of crushed fairy wings in dark witchcraft spells! The astral wings allow the wings to appear to vanish at will when not in flight. This is why some fairies may appear to have wings while others may not. A by-product of their flight, and use of magic is the infamous substance known as Fairy Dust. Something used that can be used in a variety of spells both good, and bad. Those with a keen enchanted eye, and supernatural sense can find fairy dust glittered among nature.
This small form isn’t the only state Fairies can exist in. They can transform into a normal sized human like form. This is somewhat the equivalent of a Nymph taking physical form. It takes a high level of power to maintain this increased stature, and they lose the ability to fly as well. There’s also a reduction in magical powers. When in large form they are often mistaken for Nymphs. They make take this form to partake of missions in the human world, or in some cases to pursue a human catches their sensual eyes. Although rare Fairy-Human Hybrids can result! Some fairies can also shapeshift into the form of whatever part of nature they are charged with maintaining, and protecting. This could be anything from rocks, water, clouds, plants, and animals. They do this by channeling the magic of Mother Nature’s sub-spirit for any given natural element. The purpose is to truly experience, and understand nature to its fullest.
The Paranormal Powers Of Fairies
As previously mentioned fairies can fly, and take the form of nature they represent. As well as taking a temporary human form where all their powers are greatly reduced. As a supernatural being they possesses enhanced strength, speed, agility, and senses. With their strength, and speed they could knock down a full grown human, and deliver several damaging micro blows. However that would only happen if all else failed in an attack, or they were just an ornery dark fairy! Fairies also have psychic, empathic, telepathic, and hypnotic abilities. Powers that work best on animals, and humans but to a far lesser extent on other paranormal beings. They can get premonitions of the future as relates to the environment they manage. For instance knowing the day that their patch of forest will fall prey to lumberjacks!
Whatever their speciality Fairies have Zoopathic abilities, and can control a wide array of animals. There are also varying degrees of Nature Manipulation, and Ecological Empathy along with powers that are necessary for their Goddess given tasks. For instance water fairies can have Hydrokinetic abilities. Fairies channel metaphysical energies from Nymphs who in turn gain power from Goddesses. This also them to perform magic at peak power. They also dispense power to witches, and wizards who perform Fairy Magic. They also can have the ability to direct energy into a focused burst for photokinetic, and even electrokinetic powers.
Fairies are immortal but not amortal. They can be injured, and killed by powerful practitioners of magic, and various supernatural entities. Upon death their bodies burst into fairy dust! Their spirit is released from their physical bodies so that they may enter the Earthly afterlife of Goddess Gaia’s Paradise Plane, request resurrection from a patron Goddess, or be promoted to Nymph if they lived long enough. Although a deeply heroic or helpful act can elevate them to Nymph status as well.
The origins of Fairies are a well kept supernatural secret. It’s thought that they could have been spontaneously created by the collective consciousness of animal, and human coming together for the first time. Plausibly the collective spirits of any given nature element with intelligence imbued by Goddess Gaia Mother Earth’s sub-conscious. Something similar to the theory that some Gods were inadvertently created by the human collective consciousnesses. Another line of thought says the Gods & Goddesses created them as another line of environmental workers. This is the case with the ultimate ground workers of the Gods known as Elves. It’s also plausible Fairies are simply demoted deities who angered the wrong Powers That Be! Where ever they came from Fairies can be helpful to humans & integral to nature. Although they can also be malicious depending on the specific species they belong to, and the influence of a higher power over them. This can include human practitioners of magic, demons, or other higher dimensional entities of evil! Certainly we know of dark fairies who are under the influence of Underworld Dark Gods, and even demons of Hell!
