Category Land fae
Mentioned in Rosemary and Rue

Pixies are a type of land fae, some of the Small Folk.

Description Edit

"They’re pretty but savage, and they’ll attack if you provoke them. They’re like mice with wings and thumbs, except for the part where mice don’t usually come armed with knives carved from broken beer bottles and homemade spears that may have been dipped in equally homemade poisons. They had an entire community thriving inside the Safeway downtown grocery store, and nobody knew about it."[1]

Faerie’s smaller citizens have their own culture and their own customs. Most of us are almost human one way or another: almost human-sized and almost human-minded. The smaller folks never acquired that “almost” and they scorn and resent the rest of us for having it. They don’t wear suits, get mortgages, or attend PTA meetings. They haunt the garden pathways, living in the space between what the eye sees and what it chooses to ignore, and they never pretend to be anything that they aren’t. I guess that makes it harder to forget what they really are, and what they are is inhuman . . . and greedy. — [2]

It is revealed that the Aes Sidhe originated from the Pixies. The Luidaeg, in exchange for curing Simon of his enchanted slumber, took them out of extinction by shifting one of Simon's Pixie friends into one.
