This fairy, found in the Tanglewood troop, is a valuable member of the rath, for she wears a dress of Usnea, an antibiotic and antifungal lichen.
As the troop's Hunters and Gathers prepare for the autumn Equinox, The Fairy Healer is on stand by with the little cuts and injuries they receive in a day's work. She uses her powers for pain relief, fever control and and wound healing.
She's not only wise, but beautiful, with her bodice tinged with the last green of summer and adorned with purple wildflowers.
