While most sprites are the tiniest of the fae and known for their love of wine and sweets, the variety of sprite most likely to be encountered by adventurers are usually larger "outcasts" from the Fae community that tend to be bent on destruction.
The tiniest (three to five inches) of the Fae, Sprites have long wings of several vivid jewel colors and come in a variety of shapes (fat, thin, slender, scrawny, muscular). All possess magic, and are excellent crafters of wine and candy. Sprites love milk, bread and sugar. They hate salt and garlic, and often run away at the sight of it. A few rare Sprites exceed the normal height and reach upwards to the size of Halflings. These are usually "outcasts" from the Fae community, and tend to be bent on destruction.
