Back to Bestiary | Back to Fey
Most fey can be benevolent or malicious, changing between the two on a whim. Glimmerwings are no exception. They spend much of their time engaged in bizarre dances around ancient stone circles (known as fey circles for this reason), and are wary of showing themselves to non-fey, except for children. Indeed, glimmerwings have a strange affinity to children of all races, and often adopt a child, protecting him or her from bullies or abusive adults. When being protective, their fury knows no limits.
In their natural form they appear as winged humanoids with sharp teeth and claws, animal eyes, and mottled green-brown skin. However, they spend much of their time in the guise of flicking balls of light with translucent wings, from where they get their common name.
