It's practically done, I just need help to develop Background/History.
Species Name: Fairies
*Scientific Name: Alis parum
Names: Usually one-word plant names, though occasionally there's a two-word plant name like Blazing Star (whom I will make soon). There aren't really many last names, though a fairy can have one if they choose to (it won't be used for anything but for courtesy/politeness, though, and won't necessarily be passed down to their children).
Lifespan: They usually live for 800-900 hundred years, though they age slowly, so a fifty-year old fairy would look like a little kid. A few may even reach 1,000 years of age. The oldest fairy was 1,226 years old.
Genders: Mostly female, there may be a few males here and there, but they're harder to find.
*Hierarchy: There's a queen (kings are very rare) who handpicks three other fairies to help her. They usually just supervise and organize groups to harvest berries, fruits, and vegetables, and resolve any problems or conflicts. The healer is also very well respected, and is almost considered the queens fourth advisor.
Typical Appearance: Their wings can either be leaf-shaped or rounded like a flower petal, depending on the plant they're named after, and can be any naturally-occurring plant color. They usually take on the plant traits of their namesake plants, so a fairy named after a vine would be tall and skinny, and a ground cover-named fairy would be very short. Other than that, they look like any normal person, except for their wings and tininess.
*Clothing: They usually wear leaves or petals of their namesake plants, enchanted to stay together and/or not wear or rip easily. Most of them go barefoot.
General Personalities: Most are pretty vain, or look out only for their own interests, though there are fortunately lots of exceptions. Again, the plant they're named after will help determine this. A fairy who's plant produces sweet nectar or fruits will usually be kind and helpful, and a fairy who's plant has thorns, needles, or bitter/poisonous fruits will usually be haughty or rude (Rose, for example, tries to be nice at first, but gets angry easily. This is because roses have sweet-smelling flowers, but thorns as well).
Abilities: They are very resistant to large falls, and usually have strong, yet light, bones. They can cast small enchantments, but nothing too specific. For example, they could enchant something to come to them, or last longer, but not summon living things or make a thorn poke someone specific (they could, however, ask it to poke everyone in the surrounding area, but not everyone they know). Plus they can fly (obviously).
*Weapons: Thorns, cactus spines, needles, and other sharp natural objects. There are bows and arrows, though they are extremely rare. For shields they usually use thick and large succulent leaves, or wooden shields. And, obviously, their magic.
*Communication: They talk, like people. Their written alphabet is based off of plant shapes and other stuff from nature, like a maple leaf or a spider. They write on leaves, with sticks or dried flowers, and berry juice, usually blackberry.
*Background/History: Either a) evolution somehow? Or b) a deity created them (I don't know which though)
Other: Their namesake plants influence them greatly, and are usually the plant they're closest to when they're born. When someone retires or is unable to continue their trade (basket weaving, carver, etc.) their apprentice is usually the one who takes over, rather than their children. Healers can usually see into the future a bit. And in the middle of summer they have a celebration including dancing, music, competitions, and a feast, celebrating the summer harvest.
