Faeries

From MTG Salvation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Faeries are winged humanoid creatures of diminutive size (sometimes a foot in height or smaller) that are renowned for being great lovers of mischief. Faeries exist through the multiverse, but the most notable faeries are those of Alara (specifically in Esper), Lorwyn, Ulgrotha, and the Dominarian island of Tolaria.

The first creature to bear the type was Scryb Sprites from Alpha. Faeries are related to ouphes.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Dominaria[edit | edit source]

Fire sprites are faeries who can cast fire spells and are perpetually surrounded by a flaming aura. They were summoned by the Kieryn elves while fighting against the Calthyn elves in the White Woods of Corondor.

Ulgrotha[edit | edit source]

The Faerie Noble was the leader of the faeries of the Great Wood on Ulgrotha. The Autumn Willow created him in the form of Veldrane of Sengir. The noble and his faeries took over the River Bridge in the Great Wood and would push anyone the Autumn Willow did not want to cross into the waters.

Lorwyn[edit | edit source]

The fae of Lorwyn lead short, flitting lives in pursuit of gossip, diversions, and amusing intrigues. [1] [2] But faeries can also be carelessly cruel, capricious, and vindictive. [3] The faeries travel in small groups of three to six called cliques. It is thought that faeries do not dream, which would explain why they spend so much time harvesting the dreams of others. [4] Faeries can distill these stolen dreams into a sparkling energy that they carry around with them.

The faeries of Lorwyn were the only tribe not to be affected by the Great Aurora. [5]

Groundlings[edit | edit source]

Wingless Lorwyn faeries are called groundlings.
