First Appearance

The faerie are a magical race, similar to the Elves,[3] an ancient race of humanoid beings with supernatural powers that originated from an other-dimensional world that borders upon Britain and Ireland on Earth.

There are faeries native to Avalon,[4] the world of the Celtic Gods, and lived in Fairyland, deep within the Forest of a Thousand Sorrows of Avalon.[2]

Relations to other races and species

They are closely related to the Leprechauns (who are closely related as well to the Elven race).[2]

The faerie are closely related to the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim,[5] one of the Nine Worlds of Asgardian Cosmology, and are even stated to be the one and same group.[6] It is also considered that both Dark and Light Elves are included among the Faerie of Celtic myth,[7] while another account described only the Dark Elves as being of the same race as those Faerie (leaving no relation between Faerie and Light Elves).[8] Though the Elves of Otherworld are related to be the Fae through the Leprechauns, the Elves of Otherworld aren't considered as related to their Asgardian counterparts.[2]

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Magical Energy Manipulation: All Faeries have a strong capacity to manipulate mystical energy, which they often use to perform spells or enchantments. Because of this, all faeries have a vast potential as Sorcerers (or Sorceresses).[citation needed]

Immortality: Most Faeries are functionally immortal.[citation needed] They are immune to the effects of aging and cease aging upon reaching adulthood.[citation needed]

Wings: Faeries often posses insectoid wings protruding from their back that allow them to engage in flight.

Weaknesses

The mystical powers of faeries are rendered useless against objects composed of "cold iron" or steel. Additionally, Cold iron can also harm faeries in both their physical, and astral forms. Accordingly, blow from iron can harm a faerie, whereas an equally strong blow from a different substance would not harm them at all.
