A Sprite is one of The People in the Artemis Fowl series.

Appearance and Characteristics

Sprites are the only winged species of fairy. They are around the same height as elves (3 feet or 1 meter 1 centimetre) and have orange eyes and pointy ears and green skin. Sprites have limited healing powers as most of their magic is used for flight, they can magic away a wart or light injuries,but more severe injuries, like gaping wounds or getting shot are beyond them.

Sprites have a generally optimistic and happy-go-lucky attitude. The males are known to be quite sexifiual, even outside their own species. It is easy to tell when a sprite is nervous, as they have a habit of hovering. A sprite's wings are its biggest organ, containing 7 main arteries. They are quite daring and daredevils, as they like to think anyway. Chix Verbil is a notable sprite, as he is the first victim of the triads war and because he let Mulch steal a shuttle to help Holly. Another famous sprite is Unix, Turnball Root's right-hand fairy. Unix had his wings removed in a fight with a troll.

A known variant of the Sprite is the Water Sprite.
