Fairies are a type of mythical being or legendary creature, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural or preternatural. They are also commonly referred to as Fae. Fairies resemble various beings of other mythologies, though even folklore that uses the term fairy offers many definitions. Sometimes the term describes any magical creature, including goblins or gnomes: at other times, the term only describes a specific type of more ethereal creature.
Modern fantasy settings have also incorporated darker tones for fairy lore, making them more appealing for more mature audiences. Fairies form the central background of the Canadian supernatural fantasy series Lost Girl. The main character from the show, Ysabeau "Bo" Dennis is a subspecies of fairy known as a succubus. Growing up unaware of her mystical heritage (aside from the growing need to siphon the life energy from others), Bo learned about the tribes of Light and Dark Fae and became a private investigator of the supernatural.
Fairies are but one of the many supernatural creatures featured in the HBO television series True Blood. The central protagonist of the show, Sookie Stackhouse, is revealed to be half Fae at the end of season three. At the beginning of season four, she travels to the land of the Fae and spends only a few minutes there, though a year's worth of time passes in the Earth realm.
