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 energetic fey constantly watches its owner, only waiting to speed off on an errant to deliver important messages. It flies with a speed of 65 miles per hour to a designated target location where it will relay its message to the first person it encounters. Alternatively, it can be ordered to deliver its message only to a specific individual, whose location is known to the fey’s owner (the fey will search a 300 feet radius for this recipient). It will wait at its target location until sent back with an answer (it can unerringly locate its owner, even if they have moved from the fey’s starting point in the mean time). The fey can remember and relay word for word verbal messages of up to 15 minutes length, but will constantly mutter them to itself on the way, to make sure it does not forget anything. It can also carry objects weighing up to one pound.
