In places where the only light is the shimmering of gemstones or possibly luminescent moss, soft wings flutter and carry those that wander through the Lost Paths
. Here, one may find horrors and twisted fairy tales, but the Deep Fairies call this place home and serve it as their life's work. In the chaos of the Lost Paths
and the Wandering Forest
, another of the descendants of the Ancient Fey
carve their place.
Deep Fairies are an oddity and considered quite rare in the world of Isekai. It is said that they are charged with wandering the twisted routes of the Lost Paths
as they weave in and out of Káto
in the strangest of places. Their role in the Eldritch War
is unknown as the Wandering Forest
was a chaotic place during that time, Káto
also, but as the two realms mixed in the Lost Paths
, a place beyond chaos erupted, leaving history hard to track down. Deep Fairies are known to be speakers of the earth, they are reliant authorities on finding both minerals and gems, but they do it by listening to the whispers of the deep caverns. It is because of these strange "whispers" that they are able to traverse the most dangerous of paths with some semblance of safety.
Currently, Deep Fairies are native to the Lost Paths
but they are rarely seen anywhere else in the world as many seem to think that they are messengers of misfortune or bad omens from the gods. Deep Fairies are lone travelers, preferring the safety of speed and stealth over large groups or caravans and they swear allegiance in passing to the Ancient Fey
whose domains that they inhabit for a time before taking to the open road again. The Deep Fairies have no grand cities or capitals on the material plane but it has long been accepted that they do have a special meeting place, a dimension that is hidden and tucked away between the crevices of long-forgotten caverns where they gather called the Crystal Crossroads
