Common traitsEditAll Fey usually use a type of magic called glamour to hide themselves from Humans. Those Humans who have the Sight can see through glamour.
No Faerie (except Dwarves) can handle iron or materials made from iron, such as steel. If a Faerie touches iron, the exposed spot will be burned and damaged.
Many Fey are violently "allergic" to Human household chemicals and also salt. On the other hand, they like milk (they like it best if it is lukewarm).
Those Faeries who are intelligent enough to wear clothes often wear green outfits, and the color green can draw Faeries closer. However, they can be displeased to find a Human wearing their color. Red works the other way and shy away Fey just like smoke does to bees, according to the Field Guide.
Something else that is protective against malevolent Faries are a bunch of twigs — one from an oak, one from an ash and one from some kind of thorn three — bound together with red thread.

Behind the scenesEdit
Even though "Fairy" is sometimes thought to only depict tiny, winged cute magical creatures, the old British and Irish word "Faerie" depicts many types of magical spirits, both small and big, good and evil, beautiful and ugly.
