Fey are rare in Esterin. As creatures of mana, light, and nature, many of them perished when the world was plunged into darkness if they were not along a mana spring or leyline -- simply vanishing from existence. It is much more common to meet a descendant of fey (also known as a Faer), which is someone with a grandparent or beyond within their bloodline. Fey have an extremely keen understanding of illusion and charm magic, and additionally they can cast pixie fire and shock. Their mana is distinct as it typically shimmers in bright neon colors, such as pink, blue, green, or orange. Fey are mischievous, adorable tricksters that will try to help others but usually at the expense of the dignity of those they are helping. Fey and Dragons have a close bond, as both are the two oldest living species in the world and have been most affected by the world’s changes. Additionally, Fey are a founding ancestor to Elves.
Fey are unusually adept at magic casting. Additionally, have a natural charm that can draw other creatures to them. In addition to their wings, fey emit particles of pure mana from their body known as pixie dust and nectar. Pixie dust falls from their wings, while nectar could be any liquid produced in the fey body (saliva, blood, etc). If ingested, those around them can become mana drunk or unduly charmed. The side effect varies from person to person, but most that come in contact with pixie dust or nectar find it to be extremely comforting, pleasurable, or sleep-inducing.
