Bloom, a fire fairy after unlocking her wings

Fairies are magical beings that primarily reside in the Otherworld. In the past, fairies used to have access to transformation magic that enabled them to develop wings, but over time, this magic was lost. Each fairy is born with the ability to channel a specific element, and they learn to harness these powers at educational institutions such as Alfea.

Appearance

The students at Alfea, the only fairies seen thus far, and there is no overall appearance similarities other than the fact that their eyes change color. Fairies with the same 'element' or the type of fairy that they are determines the color their eyes change into when using their abilities. Fairies are first seen at Alfea where they attend school. Many students seem to be fairies and they learn magic in classes designed to teach them control. According to Farah Dowling, no fairy has been able to transform into their magic forms in over a hundred years, until Bloom acquired the transformation process herself. While the clothes seemingly do not change, the wings took on the form of Bloom's element (fire), which could point out to the nature of the transformative appearance is given the respective magic of a fairy.

Magical Abilities

In the magical world, there are 6 types of magic 'elements'. These are Light, Water, Fire, Mind, Earth and Air. Each fairy is born with one of these elements, but their abilities can manifest themselves in different ways. Fairy magic enters in the very fabric of Nature. Fairy magic needs to feed such a thing called "channelling", fairies are able to guide their own emotions to use magic. During the evolution, Fairies lost access to Transformation Magic to give themselves wings. Also, fairies are able to combine their magic with other fairies for various effects. A fairy may not display all powers available to her/his fairy type. There are specific focuses; Musa's focus was emotion, Terra's focus was plants, Sam's focus was natural substances, Beatrix's focus was generating electricity. Other 'elements' can have aspects of another. Beatrix showed an affinity for resisting Dowling's attempt at mind tapping. Currently, the entire list of abilities of each fairy is unknown.

  • Instead of each fairy having a unique power of her own, in Fate: The Winx Saga they are divided by "fairy types", like mind, fire, water, etc;. Additionally. the magic types are now more based on the elements of nature than it was in the original.
  • Unlike the Fairies from the original series, the Fairies in Fate: The Winx Saga do not have winged Fairy Forms Winxlink.png[1]. According to Farah Dowling, Fairies lost the secret of transformation magic long, long ago, for unknown reasons.
    • However, Bloom was able to transform in the episode "A Fanatic Heart" making her the only one to do so since long ago.
  • Unlike the Fairies from the original series, the Fairies in Fate: The Winx Saga are not solely female and there are both female and male Fairies in the show[1].
    • The showrunner for Fate: The Winx Saga, Brian Young, said that the inclusion of male fairies was a deliberate attempt at challenging the original Winx Club series' outdated gender norms[1].
