Fairies (also known as Fea, Fay, Feary, Alein, wee folk, good folk, fair folk, people of peace, the old people, Fenordree, Ellyllon, Etc.) are a type of magical creatures that can be in the form of a spirit.
There are many types of fairies such as (Pixies,Elves,Nymphs,Dryads,Banshee,Brownies,Gnomes,Goblins, Leprechauns, Mer-people,Valkyries,Dwarves,Trolls,Imps,Hags, and many more). Mostly all fairies are nice, Some fairies were painted as evil by humans in ancient times after the Iron War.
Fairies are very powerful creatures, some may be small but they sure do pack a lot power with them. They have amazing abilities that are much more advanced the humans. Fairies are stronger the humans and some other supernatural creatures.
In early folklore some fairies are described to be as big as humans, which could be true because some fairies are bigger than others such as Nymphs and Elves who are human sized. With the hundreds of types of fairies in the world, It is unknown the size of all of them. They range from about a few inches to about 7 feet. Giants, Unicorns,and other creatures within the fairy world are also considered fairy. However they don't have the same powers that the normal fairies possess.
Fairy/Human Hybrids: Some say there are fairy/human hybrids. In my opinion I believe it. Due to some fairies being human sized and fairies are very similar to humans it may be possible. Species of fairies such as Nymphs and Elves are human sized so it could be possible for a fairy/human hybrids to exist. Some people say they are fairy/human hybrids. Fairy/Human Hybrids would probably not posses all powers of fairies but only some. Fairies have many powers and some we may not know about yet so you can posses fairy blood inside you and not even know.
