The faerie are a magical race, similar to the Elves, an ancient race of humanoid beings with supernatural powers that originated from an other-dimensional world that borders upon Britain and Ireland on Earth.
Relations to other races and species
The faerie are closely related to the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, one of the Nine Worlds of Asgardian Cosmology, and are even stated to be the one and same group. It is also considered that both Dark and Light Elves are included among the Faerie of Celtic myth, 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). 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.
History of this race is unknown.
Powers and Abilities
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).
Wings: Faeries often posses insectoid wings protruding from their back that allow them to engage in flight.
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.
