Although they’re often seen as positive & bright elementals, aren’t fairies more play and ambivalent (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)?
Yes, plenty of ambivalence and mischief in the faerie! In ‘Sentinel’ (on Ariel), wild light of a will o the wisp is… tempting a dreamer to leave her fortress. In ‘The Last Centaur’ (on Alexandria), a rapacious centaur becomes a prophet of change. In ‘Duncan the Fiddler’ (on Argo), a capricious little man dares a musician to a duet that almost kills him and certainly sends him mad.

It is not for me to say this, nor do I claim any right to speak for other souls.
