Fairy Tales Lore Bits #4

The wings of the major sprite varieties are varied, sort of as a reflection of the varying personalities of the Spirits that created them.

Fire Sprites have protrusions on their backs that resemble bundles of twigs. They are vaguely the shape of butterfly or dragonfly wings. When vibrated at the right angle and speed, a spark is created, which ignites the wings and provides them with the thrust needed to take flight.

Air Sprites have six wings each. Each pair is a different size, with the smallest on top, the largest in the middle, and the medium-size at the bottom of the arrangement. They are translucent, and made up of prismatic scales that can reflect light in many colors. They most resemble hummingbird wings in shape.

Wraith Sprites have quills on their backs in place of wings. They can be flared out to look like wings, but they don’t offer flight. They can be found in a variety of colors, though are usually more muted than vibrant.
