Our fairytale kingdom is a magical place that many faeries and enchanted beings call home.
All of the kingdom most respects the Lilac Fairy as their leader and fear the fairy of Darkness.

The Faeries of Tenderness
(a.k.a. Crystal Fountain Fairies, Candide Fairies)
As their name suggests, they give the gifts of purity, honesty, sincerity, and integrity.
Likes: Crystals, flowing water, being kind
Dislikes: Rude people, bullies, waiting
The Faeries of Joy
(a.k.a. Enchanted Garden Fairies)
Traditionally called Fleurs de farine, translating to "wheat flower", these faeries bring the gift of beauty since wheat flowers were historically used to make face powder for women.
Likes: Springtime, frolicking, parties
Dislikes: Winter, stingy people, being indoors
The Fairy of Serenity
(a.k.a. Breadcrumb Fairy, Fairy of the Woodland Glade)
This fairy is also referred to as Miette qui tombent, meaning "falling breadcrumbs". In traditional Russian culture, bread is a symbol of welcome, fertility, and good fortune. Breadcrumbs are sometimes placed in a baby's cradle as a blessing and this fairy is the embodiment of generosity.
Likes: Long walks in nature, meditation, sunrises
Dislikes: When people make fun of her name. She did not wish to be named the "Breadcrumb Fairy"
The Faeries of Playfulness
(a.k.a. Fairies of the Songbirds, Canary Fairies)
These sweet faeries bring Princess Aurora a lovely, melodious voice. Fun Sleeping Beauty fact: The variation order is symbolic--the Faeries of Joy (Enchanted Garden, second faeries), the Fairy of Generosity (Woodland Glade, third fairy) and the Faeries of Playfulness (Songbird, fourth faeries) are in that order because wheat flowers lead to falling breadcrumbs which then attract songbirds.Likes: Singing, chattering, jazz hands
Dislikes: Cats, sitting still, being quiet
The Jewel Fairy
(a.k.a. Silver Fairy)
The Silver Fairy brings Princess Aurora the ability to remain flexible and malleable in the face of adversity. These qualities help Princess Aurora to adapt to the most unexpected of life's events with grace, ease, and a light heart.
Likes: Precious metals, gemstones, all things that glitter
Dislikes: Costume Jewelry
