A Fairy (妖精, yōsei) is a simple creature of magic that represents some aspect of nature. Many of them are also simple-minded.

Fairies may have abilities relating to the four seasons, weather, emotions, longevity, decay, fertility, or other aspects of nature. The power exercised by a single fairy is usually harmless and small scale, so they're more suited to playing around, rather than causing major happenings. Fortunately, most fairies are easily amused.
