Now, let me tell you all about FAIRIES.
I bet you're already thinking of Tinkerbell, right? Well you wouldn't be too far off the mark. While there are lots of different types of creatures around, the most typical fairy you would come across is an average nine to twelve inches in height, are slim and have delicate features, often have an abnormal colour of eyes as well as hair (even if its just abnormally bright or dark or rainbow hued), a slight point in the tips of their ears, and butterfly-like wings on their backs which are kind of difficult to miss. Of course, that's when they're in their natural form. They do have the ability to transform into a more human-like appearance without their wings and slightly shorter in height, though unless they choose to use glamour to hide it their hair and eyes will still be strangely coloured.
These little buggers are practically overflowing with magic too, its basically first nature to them and a lot of it is nature based. Often they're most inclined to a particular element of nature; fire, earth, water, air, electricity, light, shadow, and so on. They're also particularly drawn toward and fond of animals and are able to actually communicate with and understand them.
Fairies are rather full of energy and tend to move and think very quickly, making it difficult to keep up a lot of the time, not to mention they can appear to be distracted rather easily by shiny things (think of a kid with ADHD). They also love sweet things, though too much of it can make them even more hyperactive than usual.
There are some things that fairies are adverse to, however. Iron and lead are something that can make them ill or even kill them if they're severely injured with it or ingest it, since they're allergic to it. They're not fond of a lot of technological gadgets and things and tend to avoid them where possible (although they have been known to become entranced by watching a television due to its 'shininess'). Any damage to their wings is difficult to repair and so they're very careful about not letting people near those, however, the rest of their body heals almost instantly from injury (unless made with iron or lead).
Fairies age extremely slowly, and can live for a couple of thousand years or so. From infancy to young adulthood they age around the same speed as humans, however once they hit adulthood, their aging slows to a pace where its practically stopped. You wouldn't be able to see signs of aging in a fairy until they're... well... a few hundred years or more older than you'll ever live to be. Avoiding cities and heavily populated areas for the most part, fairies tend to keep to themselves and won't reveal themselves to most humans, wizards being an acception in some cases, though they are known to visit children on occasion when Mum or Dad aren't watching, and play games with them.
