A tiny, giggling humanoid with lacy wings.

Fairies are a type of fanciful above-ground vermin that live in good areas. They, alongside pixies, are the only intelligent vermin in the game, though they can't be interacted with on the basis of being vermin. When encountered in adventure mode, they will glow in the dark. They possess a pet value of 10. As they possess the VERMIN_NOTRAP token, they cannot be captured by placing animal traps, but they can still be trapped using the catch live land animal task.

Despite their description, they do not actually have wings at all, let alone lacy ones (though they can still fly, even without them). A comment in their raws implies Toady plans to eventually give them lacy wings.

Some dwarves like fairies for their lacy wings and their babylike giggles.

Note: Wings may not function in-game.
