Freeya, too, posits fey as free, often powerful, often capricious spirit beings, both natural and supernatural. The Elysian Empire claims to be rooted in such natural forces but more than that, it also claims lordship over them. The fey slaves who swarm around high ranking Elysians are perhaps the most visible token of this claim to absolute rulership.
These small winged creatures have no will of their own owing to Elysian magic and the divine power of the Elysian God Emperor. Fey slaves are treated as magic items and not as creatures.
They are weightless and do not occupy any space on their owner’s body. Instead, they float and flit around close to their owner until they receive a command. For storage purposes they are often placed in small cases or bottles, to supress their glowing, humming, and flapping or other distraction or attention.
This fey floats just above the ground and holds up the hem or trail of its owner’s clothes to prevent them from dragging over the ground and getting dirty. Depending on the outfit worn, more than one fey might be necessary to successfully prevent dirt getting on the clothes and to make an adequately dignified impression.
