The Faerie are a race of small winged humanoids, also called faries or fairies.
Unlike the original version, here Faeries are treated as a racial group instead of a class. They belong to the "Demi-human" or "Humanoid" group along with the Winged, Lizardmen, Lamia, Orcs, Gremlins and Pumpkinheads.
Faeries are fragile but speedy units, preferring magic over physicial combat. Despite this, they aren't very good magic attackers, lacking the specialized stats and skills of advanced units such as the Necromancer or Lich or unique characters such as Deneb or the Phoraena sisters. However, their speed makes them excellent support units, especially as a Familiar, thanks to their wide spell-list and racial skills.
Faeries have access to the Rogue and Familiar classes. Also, if a Faerie dies and turns into a Ghost or Skeleton, they can be further changed into a Divine Knight under the right conditions (all three changes mentioned are permanent).
