Innate Spellcasting. The pixie's spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 14, +6 to hit with spell attacks). The pixie can innately cast the following spells, requiring only pixie dust as material components:

At will: cure wounds, detect magic, druidcraft
1/day each: cure wounds (as a 3rd level spell), dimension door, fly, invisibility, levitate (up to 50 pounds)

Fairy Resilience. The pixie has advantage on saving throws against poison, spells and illusions. Magic can't put the pixie to sleep.

Flyby. The pixie doesn't provoke an opportunity attack when it flies out of an enemy's reach.

Shrink. The pixie can use an action to make any unattended object that is sized for a Medium or Small creature shrink down or restore to its original state. The object shrinks to a size appropriate for a Tiny creature's use. The size ends if the pixie uses this ability on the shrunken target. While shrunk, the object keeps its game statistics, such as damage dice but its weight shrinks accordingly.


Fairy Jab. Melee Spell Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6 + 4) psychic damage.

Pixie Dust Hurl (Recharge 5-6). The pixie throws pixie dust at a creature it can see within 60 feet of it. The target must succeed a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw against this magic or become affected by a blindness/deafness or hold person spell (the pixie's choice). The effect lasts for 1 minute or until the pixie dies or is incapacitated. An affected creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Those who travel the wilderness usually meet with pixies; a type of fairy that spawns from the existence of flowers. If a pixie is disturbed, it usually uses its innate magical abilities to allow it to flee by teleporting into a narrow rift or temporarily turning invisible.
Like the flowers they come from, pixies have the least restricted variety of hair and eye colors. Just as there can be flowers of nearly any color, pixies can sport nearly any hair and eye color under the sun. Pixies seem to be the only variety of fairy whose population is almost entirely female, with males being rare. Some arcane scholars suggest this might be because flowers are much more commonly associated with women than men. These fairies seem to be exceptionally in tune with emotions, as their expressions can have some shockingly drastic effects on the mood of a room. Their sweet smiles are uplifting, practically evicting foul moods. In the wake of their fluttery laughter, a conversation can quickly dissolve into a chorus of chuckles, giggles, and guffaws.
Pixies naturally produce a kind of alchemic secretion known as pixie dust. Even a nibble of pixie dust is enough to send a human-sized person into a dreamy status or grant a willing person the power of psionic levitation. Many greedy merchants hunt down pixies for the valuable pixie dust. Not to mention some decadent nobles always want such creatures as their exotic pets. Pixies have to fight for their survival. But ironically, they seem to be the most empathetic and understanding of the fairies, sympathizing frequently with others, and have a habit of eavesdropping on conversations.
Giants have developed an alliance with pixies for countless centuries. Both of them share a stance against dragons, fomorians and other creatures that are eager to enslave them. They also share a similar origin as the "spawn of nature's energy flow". Pixies can demand gold from the earth, or wood from the forest, and then give them to the giants. While the giants can use their strength and elemental magic to help pixies produce flowers, allowing them to have a stable sanctuary. Even the most savage hill and frost giants (who seldom use anything aside from fists to communicate) tolerate and yield pixies to a certain degree.
