They are palm size and looked like fluid ice and pure crystal, with no breasts or other genitalia. They have Pupil-less eyes, sharp teeth and dragonfly like wings.
Briefly, in Chapter 2.29, the Frost Faeries frozen crystal skin changed, and grew brighter, with the colors of spring running through their bodies, bright and green, the color of grass and sunlight and clear blue skies.
Under the effect of their Glamor, the people, monsters and creatures of horror and blight of the world, they look like fuzzy shapes in blue and white.
Winter Sprites appear at the beginning of every winter, as they are responsible for bringing the snow to the world, which was entrusted to them by their king. They are presumed to be quite ancient, as they were friends of the Elves. They are immortal.
They can travel between worlds, and were on Earth in the past. They left due to the growing pollution levels.
For reason not yet stated, they strongly hate Half-Elves, and will torment them whenever they can.
Powers and Abilities Edit
They can fly and conjure snow, ice and avalanches out of thin air. They are also capable of dropping the temperature and freezing anything that touches them. They can cast a Glamor on themselves so that mortals cannot hear them and they can't see there true forms.
Faerie magic affects the perceptions of reality - For example, they can make great distances appear much closer than they should be, and change the way people speak.
They can make a small sanctuary, were the air became warm, snow melts and grass and flowers grew and flourish. They can move across paths beyond worlds.
Limitations and Weaknesses Edit
- They fear cold Iron, as the mere contact with it leads to injuries. As a result, they won't enter buildings that are made of it.
- To much Iron interferes with their magic. In buildings that are made of it, they can't use their magic and it negates their glamor.
- They can't enter places without an Invitation.
- Once they make a promise they can't break it.
- Their Glamour can be seen trough or broken under plenty of conditions, such as:
- The eyes of Gods and cats.
- Great Masters of Magic.
- Standing in the right place under full Moon.
- Anyone who drank, the secret drink of the fae.
- If they enter buildings with to much Iron.
- If they are hit.
- Time and distance affect them differently, allowing them to travel at what seems to be impossible speeds to onlookers. At the same time, they can't perceive how Val and Ryoka run at different speeds.
- They first met Teriarch when he was still a whelp, though just in passing.
- People from Earth can see their true forms and hear them, because unknown to them, they eat all the ingredients for the faerie’s drink.
- Once someone kills a Fae they will be killed before the next moon rises.
