From D&D Wiki

They are quite playful and enjoy playing games and having fun; Sometimes a faerie will find pulling pranks to be fun. Despite their reclusive nature, they are very welcoming and friendly to any that happen upon them. Faeries have been known to follow adventurers through their travels. Such Faeries tend to be more outgoing and adventurous. Faeries have a powerful bond with the nature, and revere all forms of life.
