Fairies - is a type of mythological being or legendary creature. They run through both mythology and folklore. At times described as magical.

Fairies are generally described as human in form and having magical powers. Their true origin is not clear, one is that they are a species completely independent from humans. Folklore suggests they are from a conquered race living in hiding.

Much of the folklore revolves around their malice, Iron is said to be poisonous to Fairies, or charms and herbs are used. Or avoiding locations known to be theirs.

In modern culture they are often depicted with wings from small to tall or even Angelic in nature. Wings while common in Victorian times are rare in Folklore.


Fairies go to :

Dead : They were the dead or some subclass of the dead. For Irish the Banshee, Scottish the Bean Shith, household Spirit like a Brownie.

Elementals - Viewed as an intelligent species, distinct from humans and Angels.

Demoted Angels - One story is that the Angels revolted, God ordered the Heaven Gates closed those whom remained inside the gates remained Angels, those outside the gates became Devils and those stuck in between became Fairies.

Demons - The belief that Fairies were demons entirely. This became more popular with Puritanism.

Humans - Less common but that fairies are actually humans, tale of how a woman had hidden some children from God, and then looked for them in vain, because they had become the hidden people, the Fairies.

Babies’ Laughs -

The story Peter Pan in J.M. Barrie’s 1902 novel “The Little White Bird”. Barrie wrote “ When the first baby laughed for the first time, his laugh broke into a million pieces, and they all went skipping about. That was the beginning of Fairies.”
