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 flits and flails around anyone coming near its owner with weapons drawn, trying to disorient any wouldbe attackers and throwing itself into harm’s way. Melee attacks against the fey’s owner suffer disadvantage. If a melee attack against the fey’s owner misses, it hits the fey instead which is destroyed in the process.
