Pixies are the most common variety of sprite. When fully grown they are not much larger than human toddlers, averaging about 2’6’’. They have wings and a number of powerful inherent magical abilities, including the ability to turn invisible at will without limit.
Unlike grigs and nixies, pixies are frequently willing to merge their territories with neighboring settlements of non-sprite peoples. Sometimes these merges are uneventful, but in other cases they may become bitter and xenophobic. The contemptuous slur “tinkerbell” refers to pixies’ tendency to replace all of the skilled laborers within a particular niche in a community, e.g. the tinkers and bellfounders and other simple metalworkers.
