Appearance and Characteristics
Sprites are the only winged species of fairy. They are around the same height as elves (3 feet or 1 meter 1 centimetre) and have orange eyes and pointy ears and green skin. Sprites have limited healing powers as most of their magic is used for flight, they can magic away a wart or light injuries,but more severe injuries, like gaping wounds or getting shot are beyond them.
Sprites have a generally optimistic and happy-go-lucky attitude. The males are known to be quite flirtatious, even outside their own species. It is easy to tell when a sprite is nervous, as they have a habit of hovering. A sprite's wings are its biggest organ, containing 7 main arteries. They are quite daring and daredevils, as they like to think anyway. Chix Verbil is a notable sprite, as he is the first victim of the triads war and because he let Mulch steal a shuttle to help Holly. Another famous sprite is Unix, Turnball Root's right-hand fairy. Unix had his wings removed in a fight with a troll.
A known variant of the Sprite is the Water Sprite.
