Trooping Fairies – These fairies are generally the same size as pixies (6”tall) but have no wings. They are known as trooping fairies because they travel together in long processions. The males often wear green jackets and they tend live near the woods where there is a lot of underbrush. They are also known to inhabit trees often referred to by humans as a “fairy tree.” Trooping fairies can be larger or smaller than 6” and can be friendly or sinister.
