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.
Fey slaves count as their own magic item category, but could also be treated as wonderous items if preferred.

*****: The worth of the diamond consumed by the fey necromancer to restore a fey slave depends on the fey slave’s rarity – 300 gp for a common, 500 gp for an uncommon, 1,000 gp for a rare and 25,000 gp for a very rare fey slave. Legendary fey slaves cannot be restored by a fey necromancer.
