Fairies are immortal, able to live forever, and although they age and mature just like humans do, it takes them much longer to get through adulthood than a human. Cosmo and Wanda have looked more or less the same for over 10,000 years, usually only changing their style of clothing and hair to the style appropriate of the time frame and or location. Fairies can be killed by violent acts, and they can catch certain magical diseases such as magic back-up, the fairy flu and chicken poofs, though these diseases are not fatal to the fairy, they can still be dangerous to the fairy and those around them.
Most fairies follow the same basic anatomy: They have small bodies, about the size of a human child. But there are also several fairies who are human-sized or even bigger, such as the Tooth Fairy, the Amazonian Fairies, or the Ancient Fairy Warriors like Jorgen Von Strangle. They have a pair of insect like wings, and yellow crowns that float an inch or two above their heads. They typically carry magic wands that are shaped like black sticks with a yellow star at the end. Fairies are almost always seen floating, the exception to this is Jorgen, who has a jet pack instead of wings, and is usually standing on the ground.
Hundreds of millenniums ago, the fairies fought a long war against the darkness. They were able to subdue the darkness temporarily, becoming stars in the heavens in the process, until a chosen one could come along and defeat the darkness. Many Fairies since then have used their magic to help sad human children on Earth until they grow up.
Every number of years, every Fairy has to go through a bad day where they are "bad" instead of good.
Fairy Godparents are assigned to children who are miserable to help make thier lives easier until adulthood. To become a Godparent, you have to go to the Fairy Academy, or Spellementary School. Fairies maintain a strict policy of secrecy, if any godchild reveals the existence of their fairy or any other fairy, they will lose their fairy and anyone in the vicinity will have their memories wiped, including the godchild forever. These rules, and more, exist withing a book called Da Rules, and are enforced by Jorgen and the Fairy Council.
Fairy AnimalsThere are also fairy versions of the animals on Earth. Fairy animals have magic just like fairies but it works a bit different. The magic fairy animals have are related to what type of animal. For example, Sparky possesses "dog magic", allowing him to disguise himself as a bone.
Being able to use magic gives the fairies a number of powers and abilities.
- They can grant wishes within the limits of Da Rules, ranging from the smallest of tasks such as moving things like telekinesis to world wide reality changes.
- They can fly/float.
- They can shapeshift or simply disguise.
- They do not die from natural causes, and are able to survive things that would kill most humans.
- They can teleport ( this ability is called Poofing) themselves or an object nearly any place they want.
- In some cases, it is shown that they can use this ability when they don't have any magical powers.
- They can also use their magic to heal their wounds and the wounds of others, such as their godchildren.
- If a fairy is a baby, they will have access to powerful and unstable magic, though the baby can learn to control the magic.
- They are weak to butterfly nets.
- They are attracted to Rump Roast, and it can be used to lure and trap them.
- They are able to create things which are in turn immune to their magic.
- If they lose their wands, they cannot grant wishes and lose access to a lot of their abilities.
- Though they are immortal, they can still be affected by disease, such as when Poof ended up having the Chicken Poofs.
- When they shapeshift, they keep some of the features they have as a fairy, allowing fairy hunters to potentially recognize them.
- If their godchild makes conspicuous wishes, then the fairies will risk being discovered.
- If their fagiggly glands could go bad, they will shapeshift uncontrollably.
Fairies do not generate magic themselves. Fairy wands act as receivers to 'The Big Wand', a large tower which draws on the human belief in fairies and converts it into magic which then sends it out to the wands and everything else which requires power in Fairy World as well as the fairies ability to fly.
For a number of years, all of Fairy World's magic came from Denzel Crocker, but due to the events of Crocker Shocker, it has been expanded to all fairy obsessed people on earth. Should The Big Wand be shut down, fairies will have whatever charge is left on their wand to use, until The Big Wand powers up again and they can recharge their wands.
