All Tinker Fairies
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Most have a green and brown color scheme.
- Badass Normal: In fairy terms, anyway; they don't have any special powers, but are quite good at coming up with gadgets.
- Mr. Fixit: The guys. As Miss Bell puts it, "I'm a tinker. We fix things."
- Steampunk: Downplayed. Tinkerers have shades of this aesthetic, especially in the books, in which they make heavy use of Magitek created from "lost things" combined with pixie dust. It's less obvious in the movies, but characters still have fantasy versions of goggles, tool belts, and other equipment that lends itself nicely to a steampunk cosplay.
- Wrench Wench: The girls. As Miss Bell puts it, "I'm a tinker. We fix things."
All animal fairies
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: In the movies, they're usually depicted as wearing orange clothes. This is averted in the books, where Beck wears green (although she does have orange hair.)
- Animal Lover: Naturally. Their talent is basically love and empathy with animals.
- Friend to All Living Things: To animals; hence their title.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: They are good with animals, hence their title.
All Light Fairies
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: They tend to wear yellow in the movies. Like with animal talents, this is averted in the books; the main light talent fairy is Fira, who wears a pink and purple dress with flowery hair accessories.
- Everything's Better with Rainbows: Can make rainbows out of light.
- Light 'em Up: They are light fairies, so it's to be expected.
- The Power of the Sun: Downplayed. They can move sunbeams into different positions, but they're rarely shown using this ability to create heat or fire.
All Water Fairies
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Blue, of course.
- Elemental Powers: Water, of course.
- Prone to Tears: Water fairies are a lot more sensitive than other fairies and prone to crying easily. It kind of makes sense, since they are water fairies.
All Garden Fairies
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Red in the movies.
- Fertile Feet: Garden fairies do have the power to grow out lush plants where they go. When Iridesssa temporarily became a garden fairy, this became an uncontrolled ability.
- Floral Theme Naming: Among them Rosetta, Iris, Lily, Ivy, and Chloe (which is Greek for "green shoot").
- Green Thumb: Garden fairies instinctively know how to care for different plants.
All Fast-Flying Fairies
- Adaptational Superpower Change: In the books, they're just good at flying quickly. In the movies, the fairies are given the task of delivering the seasons to the mainland, so the fast-flying fairies also have the ability to create wind and conjure tornadoes from nowhere in order to justify their presence on the Mainland.
- Blow You Away: Their purpose within nature is to create winds, e.g. to aid pollination.
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: They tend to be purple.
- Super Speed: Compared to other fairies, they're the fastest fliers of the whole lot of them.
All Scout Fairies
The defenders of Pixie Hollow from threats such as dangerous animals.
- Knight of Cerebus: Though they're good guys, their existence presents a darker side to Pixie Hollow, specifically that in order for such a society to thrive in nature, there'll bound to be violent threats to it and thus society creates something to counter it. It's heavily implied that the Scouts kill dangerous animals (and are willing to kill baby hawks, for example) and they're also armed with spears and bows.Fawn: What are you going to do when you find it?
Nyx: [sets her spear] My job.

The main protagonist. Tinker Bell is a talented tinker-fairy and a wide-eyed and idealistic girl who, while prone to being as impatient, self-centered and impulsive as ever, is a nice and caring individual.
For tropes related to her original portrayal in the Peter Pan films, go here.
- Action Girl: She likes adventure big time.
- Adaptation Personality Change: In the original Peter Pan movie and Gail Carson Levine's books, she was generally snarky, jealous, and possessive. In the Disney Fairies movies, those aspects of her character are toned down, and she's more of a wide-eyed idealist at the beginning.
- Adaptational Backstory Change: In Gail Carson Levine's books, Tink outright says that she knew from day one that she was a tinker fairy, and never wanted to be anything else. This was done specifically to contrast her with Prilla, a newbie who doesn't know her talent yet. In the movies, however, Prilla was Adapted Out, so the story explores Tink's dissatisfaction with her own talent and desire to explore the mainland.
- Adaptational Intelligence: While Tink was never implied to be dumb in Peter Pan, the books and films portray her as being a tinker fairy and a Gadgeteer Genius who can craft a variety of gadgets using numerous objects, a trait that she was never implied to have in the Peter Pan films.
- Adaptational Nice Girl: While she is still prone to being hot-temperamental and jealous, she's much nicer and more likable in the films than in her original portrayal in Peter Pan. Of course, her original portrayal is supposed to take place after the series...
- Art Evolution: Tink's wings have gained a noticable pattern and a slight rainbow glimmer that was not present in the original Peter Pan films. Her dress, while remaining largely simple, is shown to be more detailed in the films, having a textured appearance that makes it clear her outfit is made from leaves, which was not clear in the original Peter Pan films. It is especially more detailed in The Great Fairy Rescue, which adds some additional details to the dress, as well as a layered skirt made out of leaves. Subsequent films though would revert the changes introduced in Great Fairy Rescue.
- Be Yourself: Tinker Bell tries to become something other than a tinker when she learns that tinker fairies never go to the mainland. Guess how well that works out.
- Berserk Button: As seen in The Great Fairy Rescue, she really hates it when she hears a human say fairies don't exist.
- Character Tics: Her whole body going red when she's ticked off.
- Composite Character: The movie version of Tinker Bell is a composite of Tink's character from Peter Pan and Prilla's character from the original Disney Fairies books. Prilla herself was Adapted Out of the franchise, and her Nice Girl personality, subplot about finding her way as a new arrival, and status as the Audience Surrogate were all given to Tink. Tink kept her Peter Pan appearance, her character tic of turning completely red when she's mad, and some of her familiar jealousy and impulsiveness (although it was toned down.)
- Everyone Has Standards: Okay, so Tinker Bell broke the norm of Tinker Fairies by introducing the use of lost things in daily life, and she ventured into the winter woods knowing it was forbidden and she could've run the risk of destroying her wings, but it all turned out fine in the end. Those actions were reckless, sure, and Tink often didn't think things through... but even she knows it's not a good idea to tamper with pixie dust.
- Fairy Sexy: Tinker Bell's outfit is skimpy even by fairy standards. This is lampshaded when Clank and Bobble see her in her new dress for the first time and promptly become Distracted by the Sexy.
- Gadgeteer Genius: It comes with being a tinker fairy.
- Hartman Hips: Tink still has quite a curvy figure.
- Help, I'm Stuck!: There are several examples of this. In Peter Pan, her wide hips humorously get her stuck in a keyhole. Her butt gets stuck in a salt shaker and her head and shoulders get stuck in a bell in the Tinker Bell Preview shorts.
- Her Name Really Is "Barkeep": She is a tinker fairy whose name happens to be "Tinker" Bell.
- Heroic Sacrifice: A non-lethal example in Secret of the Wings. In order to warn the winter fairies about the upcoming ice who threatens the Pixie Dust Tree, she flies to their territory with no protection from the cold. Unfortunately, one of her wings breaks in the process, which is previously stated that there’s no cure for that, but she decides to keep it secret until the crises is over. She gets better, thanks to her long lost sister, Periwinkle.
- High-Pressure Emotion: Whenever she's enraged, her entire body falls into the red zone.
- Irony: Tinker Bell tries to become a water fairy, light fairy, animal fairy and garden fairy in the first film (and has a failed attempt to persuade Vidia to be a fast flying fairy). By the end, she's happy to be a tinker fairy as she was born as. Come The Pirate Fairy, she's turned into a water fairy, and isn't too happy with this change.
- I Just Want to Be Special: Pretty much sums up Tink in the first movie. She wants to be anything that gets her to the mainland instead of a boring tinker fairy.
- Iconic Outfit: She gets this when she first appears in her green mini-dress partway through the first movie.
- In-Series Nickname: Friends and colleagues often call her “Tink” or “Miss Bell”.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Though she's been softened up greatly from her original movie portrayal, she can still be impatient, temperamental and self-centered. Her jerkish qualities are stronger in the books than in the movies, though even in the movies she can be a bit of a jerk — The Lost Treasure being the most prominent example.
- Leg Focus: Her short dress accentuates her long, curvy legs, and it doesn't help that they get a slow pan up them when she's first revealed in said dress. The results are quite funny.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Constantly. In the films, she's often the direct source of her own problems. Of course, things always end up working out for her in the end, and her rash actions often wind up changing the status quo in a positive way.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Tinker Bell got a bit too close to the terrified baby bird in a sad attempt to try and be an animal fairy in the first film.
- In Secret of the Wings, Tink got her face way too close to Rosetta when she was trying to explain what happened when she crossed the winter season area. The others get a bit creeped out and Rosetta even tells them to call a doctor.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Tinker Bell's appearance isn't altered much from the 1953 film, so her overall appearance is oddly simplistic compared to the other characters. This is even more obvious in the illustrated books, in which other characters frequently wear elaborate flower-petal dresses with all manner of accessories and Tinker Bell is always in simplistic green.
- Plucky Girl: Quite the plucky one, we may add.
- Prim and Proper Bun: Has a bun.
- Suddenly Voiced: Played With. Tinker Bell was originally The Voiceless in Peter Pan and didn't speak at all until the Disney Fairies franchise, which eventually gave her the ability to speak, albeit only to other fairies, as she remains mute to humans, who aren't able to understand her (aside from Peter Pan).
- Tomboyish Ponytail: In the books.
- Tsundere: Often towards Terence.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Terence after he brought her a compass and broke her scepter accidentally in Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure.
- Will They or Won't They?: Played with in Tink & Terence's relationship. They basically act like friends, with no hint of a romance aside from a very close friendship, but it's obvious that's where the fans are supposed to think it's going (even other characters do). There's a gag in The Secret of the Wings where Periwinkle asks Tinker Bell "is he your boyfriend?" and Tink just goes "UHHHHH..." and the scene cuts away. The books definitely imply that Terrance is romantically interested in her, but stay mum on Tinker Bell's feelings about him.

An animal-talent fairy.
- A Day in the Limelight: Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast is more of a Fawn story (to the extent that Ginnifer Goodwin (the voice of Fawn) is billed above Mae Whitman in the end credits).
- Ambiguously Brown: Has olive skin, but also freckles and brunette hair. Though considering her Latina original voice actress (America Ferrera) also has freckles, it's doesn't mean she's not supposed to be Latina.
- Art Evolution: Looks notably different in "Legend Of The Neverbeast".
- Breakout Character: Despite being just a standard recurring member of Tink's friends in the films along with the other girls, she gets her own starring role in The Legend of the Neverbeast, and a new celebrity voice actor in Ginnifer Goodwin.
- Disney Death: In "Legend Of The Neverbeast".
- Does Not Like Shoes: Fawn doesn't wear any in Great Fairy Rescue and some of the Pixie Previews that seem to be set around that time period.
- Fluffy Tamer: With Gruff in The Legend of the Neverbeast.
- Foot Focus: In the short "Volley Bug" there are a couple of closeups of her feet dangling in the air.
- Hartman Hips: Easily equivalent to Tinker Bell, if not bigger, particularly in her original design.
- Meaningful Name: A fawn is the name for a baby deer.
- Nice Girl: She's willing to help out any animal, even if it puts her in danger.
- Odd Friendship: With Rosetta, the resident Girly Girl.
- Tomboy: She's very physical and energetic, and wears shorts, contrasting most Fairies, who wear dresses. However, she switches it up for a more toyetic design in The Legend of the Neverbeast, putting on a girly dress/skirt made of butterfly wings. She's still rather physical, though.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Girly's Rosetta in "Rosetta's Daring Day".
- Token Minority: She is the only Latina character in the films, if her original voice actress (America Ferrera) is anything to go by.
- You Don't Look Like You: Fawn got a more toyetic redesign for Legend of the Neverbeast, along with a new voice actor.
- Voiced by: Raven-Symoné
A light-talent fairy. Prone to panicking and is constantly worrisome.
- Adaptation Personality Change: Iridessa Beyond The Sea describes her explicitly as "a brave fairy", whereas the movie version is primarily known for her cowardice.
- Flanderization: Over time, Iridessa's gotten more anxious and panicky.
- In-Series Nickname: Friends often call her “Dess”.
- Meaningful Name: Comes from 'Iridescent'.
- Nervous Wreck: Iridessa is constantly neurotic and freaks out easily.
- Properly Paranoid: She's very squeamish, and is frequently paranoid about Tink's new inventions and the harm they might do. Of course, her concerns are oftentimes warranted, because even though Tink is a Gadgeteer Genius, she's also often impulsive, and her creations backfire just as often as they succeed.
- Sassy Black Woman: At times.
- Token Minority: She is the only Black main character.
- Voiced by: Lucy Liu
A water-talent fairy. Seen as an unflappable, serene fairy in the books, but was a complete airhead in the movies.
- Adaptation Personality Change: She was perfectly normal in the chapter books, being somewhat clever, hard-working and with her main character trait being a calm, unflappable demeanor. The movies turn her into a complete space-case who can't even tell irony or exaggeration from fact ("And she just exploded!" "*gasp!* She exploded!?").
- Asian Airhead: She has an East Asian appearance and voice actor, and in the films, her head is in the clouds most of the time. Probably why she ends up as a Fast-Flying Fairy in The Pirate Fairy.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Displays traces of this at times. In one of the shorts, she spacily stares straight ahead while Fawn is tossing everyone seeds to plant.
- The Ditz: She became this in the movies, with it becoming increasingly more apparent as the series went on.
- Flanderization: Over time, Silvermist has gone from a bit silly to flat-out weird.
- In-Series Nickname: Friends often call her “Sil”.
- Literal-Minded: In Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure when Terrance tells her Tinker Bell exploded she thinks he means Tink literally exploded, until he elaborates that he meant she lost her temper.
- Token Minority: She is the only Asian main character.
- Took a Level in Dumbass: Went from calm and normal in the books, to a bit goofy in the first movie, then to a complete space case in the last.
- True Blue Femininity: Silvermist is dressed in blue and is quite graceful (when she's not being a ditz.)
- Water Is Womanly: A water fairy and the most serene and graceful of the group.
- Voiced by: Kristin Chenoweth (2008-2010), Megan Hilty (2011-2015)
A garden-talent fairy. A very small factor in the chapter books ("Rosetta was one of the prettiest fairies in Pixie Hollow. And she knew it."), but a major one in the films.
- Accent Adaptation: In the books, no mention was made of her accent. In the movies, she's voiced with a noticable Southern Belle accent none of the other fairies have.
- A Day in the Limelight: Pixie Hollow Games focuses on Rosetta and Chloe. Some of the books also feature her in larger roles, like Rosetta's Daring Day.
- Brainless Beauty: A cute fairy, but not particularly smart.
- Chatty Hairdresser: Rosetta is this, without the hairdresser part. But in the "bloopers" in the second movie's special features, she can be seen giving a manicure to an owl... Yes, you read that correctly.
- Close-Call Haircut: More of a "close-call hair BURN". Fawn (who was temporarily a light fairy) accidentally burns off a piece of Rosetta's hair with a focused sunbeam. Rosetta doesn't notice until the end and screams.
- The Ditz: A mild case, but she does have a problem focusing on things and focuses way too much on her own appearance, even in times of great duress.
- Flanderization: In The Great Fairy Rescue, Rosetta's dislike of dirt is only treated as a minor inconvenience with her being reluctant to cross the muddy river, though she still chooses to do it despite her disgust. In The Pixie Hollow Games she's portrayed as an intense germophobe with no tolerance at all for dirt, to the point where she nearly has an emotional breakdown when Chloe accidentally splashes some mud on her dress.
- Hartman Hips: They are huge. Even compared to Tinker Bell's!
- In-Series Nickname: Friends often call her “Ro”.
- Limited Wardrobe: All of the movie characters have this to an extent, although it's especially obvious with Rosetta because she's something of a fashionista.
- Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Has green eyes and red hair.
- Southern Belle: In the films and the shorts, she's voiced with a Southern accent.
- Terrified of Germs: Ironic, since she's a garden fairy. In The Great Fairy Rescue, she takes off her shoes to cross the muddy waters, and complains about getting mud on her bare feet. She nearly ruins the team's chances in The Pixie Hollow Games by refusing to get dirty. Extra ironic when she becomes an animal fairy in The Pirate Fairy, with bugs lining up around her, much to her horror.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly to Fawn's Tomboy in "Rosetta's Daring Day". Also with Chloe in The Pixie Hollow Games.
- Took a Level in Badass: Goes from being a Southern Belle afraid of dirt at the beginning of the Pixie Hollow Games to a serious competitor by the final event.
- Unsportsmanlike Gloating: She can't resist putting her championship ring on her thumb as a reference to Rumble's "One for the thumb!" chant, since it would have been his fifth ring.
- Voiced by: Pamela Adlon
An arrogant fast-flying fairy. Completely nasty beyond all reason in the books, being cruel in addition to brutally sarcastic. The movies kept her being arrogant and snide, but slowly made her part of the group.
- Accidental Public Confession: In Tinker Bell as she is being confronted by Tink, she accidentally blurts out her thistle plot before the whole community, resulting in her punished.
- Adaptational Nice Guy: Movie Vidia is quite a sum less malicious and selfish than her book counterpart.
- Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In the books, Vidia is outright antagonistic to almost everyone. She frequently insults Rani, she and Tinker Bell barely tolerate each other, and she has absolutely no respect for Clarion, at one point threatening to throw her into the Sun. The only person she gets along with is Prilla, and even that friendship took a while to grow—in fact, in one of the earlier books, Vidia slaps Prilla in the face and calls her talentless. Movie Vidia, aside from being a lot nicer than her literary counterpart, has very few of those relationships; she's initially annoyed by Tink, but they eventually become friends, and she has enough respect for Clarion (or at least enough fear of punishment) that she actually listens to her orders.
- Adaptational Wimp: As part of her Adaptational Nice Guy personality shift. In the movies, she flies off, annoyed, when Clarion tells her to, and barely voices a complaint. In the books, she acts much nastier to people who give her orders she doesn't want to follow, and threatens to throw Clarion into the Sun at least once. Book!Vidia is just generally more violent and capable of horrible actions.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Vidia is the tallest of the main fairies, has long purple-black hair that reaches just below her waist (and would go all the way down to her ankles when worn plain), and displays a cool and distant attitude towards the others before starting to warm up to them. Even as she does begin to accept the others as her friends, she remains the most snarky and grumpy of the lot.
- Alpha Bitch: At first.
- Lovable Alpha Bitch: She eventually comes to terms with the rest of the gang, and stops being so rude and nasty to everyone. She's now just mildly-arrogant and snarky. Her book version, although quite a sum meaner, has shades of this too; she's can still be very cruel, but she has a soft spot for newcomer Genki Girl Prilla, and they eventually strike up a friendship.
- Alternate Continuity: Effectively two different characters between the books and the novels. In the books, she's almost outright villainous and cruel, literally causing sentient beings pain and refusing to believe she's done so. She almost completely lacks empathy, gets one scene in nearly every book to needle someone for no reason, and is completely disingenuous at all times, showing a softer side (ie. a brief smile) only to Prilla. In the movies, she's merely snotty and a liar, and by the third movie, shows much more empathy and care for others. She's still snarky and rude, but tends towards being exasperated instead of cruel.
- Break the Haughty: In Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Vidia occasionally does the decent thing, and she seems to have a soft spot for Prilla in the books. She's also not willing to see Tinker Bell killed and pinned to a board in The Great Fairy Rescue, despite being frequently annoyed by her.
- Deadpan Snarker: Snarks at anything whenever she can.
- Demoted to Extra: The antagonist of the first film, but has no speaking lines in the second. A major character again by the third, but just "part of the cast" in the next couple (albeit with the most lines of the non-Tink cast in The Pirate Fairy).
- Does Not Like Shoes: At least in the chapter books.
- Elemental Powers: Air, in the films. Although her talent is explicitly fast-flying, the first movie shows her also having the power to manipulate air to create tiny whirlwinds.
- Expy: In design, she's similar to Megara.
- Heel–Face Turn: In the first Tinker Bell, she and Tinker Bell are enemies. In Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, she develops a change of heart and becomes friends with Tink and the other fairies. She's still snarky and crabby like before, but is also willing to laugh with the others and even engages in group hugs.
- Irony: Winds up as a tinker fairy during the switched talents subplot of The Pirate Fairy. She does not take this well.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: An egotistical, vain sort of fairy, but is horrified when Tinker Bell is captured by humans and looks about to be victimized like a pinned butterfly collection. She also does genuinely like Prilla. She even helps Iridessa breathe through her panicky moments.
- Becomes something like a Type A Tsundere after a while. It is, after all, Vidia who is shown wiping away a tear saying goodbye to Gruff. This makes her, aside from Fawn, the only one to definitely shed tears over it.
- Loners Are Freaks: The supporting material includes a lot of commentary about the other fairies not wanting to be around her because she's so grouchy and snarky. She lives alone in a sour-plum tree.
- Loose Lips: When arguing with Tink, she lets it slip that she tricked her into destroying all the preparations for Spring by making her capture the thistles.
- Meaningful Name: From "invidia," meaning "envy." In fact, Invidia was initially going to be her full name until Gail Carson Levine decided to drop the "in."
- My God, What Have I Done?: Happens in The Great Fairy Rescue when Lizzie takes Tinker Bell in the house, because she slammed the door of the makeshift house. This is one of Vidia's first signs of her change of heart.
- Oh, Crap!: She suddenly gets one after accidentally revealing her thistle plot in front of everyone.
- Gets a look of absolute horror in The Great Fairy Rescue when she sees all the pinned butterfly specimens on display in Dr. Griffiths' study, thinking Tinker Bell will meet the same fate.
- Shadow Archetype: For Tinker Bell.
- Sixth Ranger: While not really a Five-Man Band to start with, Vidia does joins Tinker Bell's gang after her reformation in the third movie and appears to be Tink's unofficial second in command.
- Speed Demon: Vidia is extremely vain about her ability to fly fast.
- Super Speed: In Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand, Vidia wishes to be able to fly as fast as she wants for as long as she wants. Although she has fun at first, she soon realizes there's no longer any challenge in flying, and grows bored with flying altogether.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Granted, she's still a tiny fairy, but she's taller than the other main fairies, dresses in dark purple, and speaks mostly in sarcasm.
- Took a Level in Kindness: After the first movie. It happens in the books, too, although it's downplayed; she never becomes friendly or even really polite, but she does develop an Odd Friendship with Prilla after a while.
- Unknown Rival: To Tinker Bell.
- Villain: Exit, Stage Left: In the first film, after she is punished by Queen Clarion to gather up the Sprinting Thistles and return them to Needlepoint Meadow, she flies off and is not seen again for the rest of the movie.
- Voiced by: Jesse Mc Cartney
- Demoted to Extra: He pretty much disappears after Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, and usually makes non-speaking cameos.
- Everyone Can See It: The other Dust Talent Fairies poke fun at him for his attachment to Tink.
- Neat Freak: In Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, he cleaned off Tinker Bell's work bench - while she was working.
- Nice Guy: He's good-natured and helpful.
- Out of Focus: After playing a big role in the first two films, he vanishes afterwards, getting only a short appearance in the third, and a quick gag in the fourth.
- Spear Counterpart: His physical appearance resembles a male version of Tinkerbell.
- Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Tinker Bell after he brought her a compass and broke her scepter accidentally in Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure. The first novel makes it pretty clear he is attracted to her deeply, but she is too guarded to fall in love again (after Peter Pan).
- Voiced by: Anjelica Huston
- Adaptation Personality Change: Along with Tinker Bell and Vidia, she was significantly changed for the movies. In the books, she's a casual, down-to-Earth sort of monarch who is very involved in the everyday happenings of Fairy Haven. Her talent is also explicitly said to be leadership/"being the Queen," and she becomes an outright Action Girl when the situation demands it, at one point leading a charge against a full-size dragon (and winning!) Compare this to movie Clarion, who takes a backseat most of the time and rarely knows what's going on in Pixie Hollow until the main cast either informs her about it or messes up badly enough to get her attention. The movies also give her a Star-Crossed Lovers romance, when she never showed any interest in a relationship in the books.
- …And That Little Girl Was Me: The story she tells to Tinker Bell about the Star-Crossed Lovers, one from the warmer seasons, one from the Winter Woods, was about her and Lord Milori, respectively.
- Big Good: The benevolent queen of Pixie Hollow, who keeps the peace going and the seasons shifting, with the help of her subjects.
- Adaptation Distillation: In Gail Carson Levine's trilogy, she's much more of a main character, with more responsibility, complex morals, and more of a tendency towards action. In the movies, she was Demoted to Extra and had most of the Action Girl aspects of her personality taken away and given to the main cast.
- Action Girl: In Fairies and the Quest for Neverland, when she spoiler:leads the fairies in a battle against the dragon Kyto using an earring as a shield.
- The Chains of Commanding: In The Secret of the Wings. She was the one who made the rule of the border and feels terrible about it since it keeps her apart from Milori but it was necessary since crossing the border is dangerous.
- Character Tics: Has a habit of adjusting her crown when she's trying to concentrate. In Gail Carson Levine's trilogy, she loses said crown twice, and winds up aimlessly playing with her hair/fidgeting instead afterwards.
- Cool Crown: Owns one significant crown in the books, and a whole chest of them in the movies.
- Does Not Like Shoes: At least according to a story in one of the comic books called "Barefoot", where it is revealed that she sometimes likes going without shoes.
- Hair Color Dissonance: Sometimes her hair is dirty blonde, sometimes she's a brunette. It kind of varies depending on the lighting of the scene.
- In the books, she's a blonde in the chapter books and a brunette in Gail Carson Levine's trilogy. Her entire character design changes with every adaptation.
- The High Queen: Towards all of Pixie Hollow.
- In-Series Nickname: In the first couple of books, she almost always went by "Ree." This was later dropped (see Fira/"Moth" below.) Doubles as a case of Older Than They Think; some fans have complained about the overuse of the nickname in fan content, not realizing that it was actually her canonical nickname for quite a while.
- She's also called "Clarie" and "QC" by a Casanova Wannabe in the movies, although it's heavily implied that he doesn't know her personally whatsoever and is just trying to impress people by claiming he does.
- Limited Wardrobe: Many of the books avert this, but both Gail Carson Levine's trilogy and the movie series play this straight. In the former, she's always drawn with a massive, elaborate blue dress with a skirt made of ribbons, even when she's fighting a dragon, and she never takes off her crown, which causes her to loose it on two separate occasions. In the movies, she always wears a long, sparkly pixie dust gown, even when it's (literally) freezing out. This is in contrast to the main cast, who often wear clothes that are similar to their "main" outfits but more practical for the weather (although Clarion does get a coat at the end of Secret of the Wings.)
- Nonstandard Character Design: In the movies, she's taller, more elegant, and much more sparkly than the other fairies, with massive golden butterfly wings. In the books, her face and frame are pretty much the same as everyone else's, but she gets much more elaborate floor-length costumes than any of the others do, and a Cool Crown.
- Proper Lady: Just try and find a flaw in her propriety. Well, aside from the bit at the end of Secret of the Wings (jokingly chided by Fairy Mary). Downplayed in the books, in which she's more of an Action Girl but is still said to have a certain dignity about her.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She might be queen, but she doesn't take it dead seriously.
- Requisite Royal Regalia: In the movies, a dress made entirely of pixie dust, a crown, and large glowing wings. In the books, long, elaborate gowns made of rose petals and a tiara she has a habit of adjusting when she's trying to concentrate.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Particularly in the books.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: With Lord Milori. They got better.
- What Beautiful Eyes!: In the books, Gwendolyn was able to identify her by her gaze alone twice.
Minister of Spring (Hyacinth), Minister of Summer (Sunflower), Minster of Autumn (Redleaf), Minister of Winter (Snowflake)
- Voiced by: Steve Valentine (Spring), Kathy Najimy (Summer), Richard Portnow (Autumn, 2008), John DiMaggio (Autumn, 2009-2012), Gail Borges (Winter)
The ministers of each season in Pixie Hollow.
- Canon Foreigner: Unlike most of the movie characters, who appear as minor background characters in the books, the Ministers were completely new.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: All four get less focus after the first movie, but Snowflake especially falls victim to this after Secret of the Wings. Milori appears out of nowhere, Winter is suddenly cut off from the other four seasons, and Snowflake almost completely disappears. No explanation was ever given for the change, and the franchise was cancelled before she could show up again.
- Retcon: The Minister of Winter and her domain are retconned by the lore of the Winter Fairies in The Secret of the Wings. The Other Wiki states that Lord Milori is her "superintendent", but there's no given source for that.
Clank and Bobble
- Voiced by: Jeff Bennett (Clank), Rob Paulsen (Bobble)
Two tinker fairies that introduce the newborn Tinker Bell to Pixie Hollow.
- Big Fun: Clank is a large fairy, and pretty fun to have around.
- Butt-Monkey: Bobble goes through a bit of slapstick here and there.
- Cute Clumsy Girl: Bobble is very cute, clumsy, and awkward.
- Distracted by the Sexy: In the first movie, when Tink first shows up in her classic mini dress, Bobble and Clank quickly forget the fight they were having just seconds ago. Considering that Tink is the poster girl for the Fairy Sexy trope, this isn't much of a shock.
- Ditzy Genius: Clank is skilled at building, but lacks intelligence towards simple things at times.
- Fat Idiot: Clank is good enough at tinkering, but he can be pretty dense at times.
- Gentle Giant: Clank is pretty big, and he's also very nice.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: They get along swimmingly and are never seen apart.
- Making a Spectacle of Yourself: Bobble wears corrective goggles (it's All There in the Manual) that make his eyes look huge.
- Nerd Glasses: Bobble is a nerd, and he wears glasses.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: Bobble's full name is Phineas T. Kettle III (Three, not the Third), Esquire - but he's never once referred to as such besides in his own introduction.
- Redhead In Green: Bobble has red hair, and wears green clothes made of leaves.
- Those Two Guys: Rare to see them apart.
- Voiced by: Jane Horrocks
The overseer of the tinker fairies.
- Large and in Charge: She's in charge of the tinker fairies, and somewhat more bigger than they are.
- Prim and Proper Bun: The prim sort, and has a bun in her hair.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: She may not appreciate some of the shenanigans the tinker fairies pull, but is quick to recommend they take a break if they look overworked.
- Redhead In Green: A redhead, and wears a green dress made out of leaves.
A tinker fairy. She's apparently quite a slacker and is often on the receiving end of Fairy Mary's nagging.
- The Slacker: Apparently; whenever she's name-dropped it's because she's slacking off work.
- The Unseen: Never appears onscreen, but Fairy Mary is often calling to her to tell her to stop loafing about and get back to work.
- Voiced by: Jeff Bennett
The overseer of the Dust Fairies.
- Large and in Charge: He's much bigger than the other dust fairies, and he is their leader.
- Man in a Kilt: He wears a kilt and speaks with a Scottish accent.
- Voiced by: Grey DeLisle
A storytelling-talent fairy.
- Framing Device: She narrates the Disney Fairies movies when they are split into episodes for the half-hour television series.
- Minor Major Character: In The Lost Treasure, she tells the story of the Mirror of Incanta, which inspires Tinker Bell to go on a quest to find it to fix the moonstone.
- Voiced by: Brenda Song
An athletic and competitive garden-talent fairy. During the Pixie Hollow Games, she is paired up with Rosetta for the Garden-Talent Team.
- Catchphrase: "Dig down deeper and break the streak!"
- Tomboy: Complete with short hair, an affinity for sports and a tomboyish voice.
- Voiced by: Tiffany Thornton
An athletic and competitive storm-talent fairy. During the Pixie Hollow Games, she is paired up with Rumble for the Storm-Talent Team.
- Everyone Has Standards: As much as she wants to win like Rumble, she will not resort to cheating to win and quickly abandons Rumble when he cheats in the final race.
- Graceful Loser: She never hesitates to congratulate opposing teams that beat her and Rumble.
- Voiced by: Jason Dolley
An athletic and competitive storm-talent fairy. During the Pixie Hollow Games, he is paired up with Glimmer for the Storm-Talent Team.
- Cheaters Never Prosper: Wins the final race by cheating. At least he would have...except Glimmer refused to cross the finish line with him.
- Unsportsmanlike Gloating: He's the most arrogant sparrowman in the Pixie Hollow Games.
- Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren
A garden-talent fairy. She's rather sensitive and can be seen crying at various events, such as the Pixie Hollow Games and the Four Seasons Festival.
- The Cameo: In The Pirate Fairy, she can be seen as one of the audience members that falls asleep from the poppies.
- Inelegant Blubbering: Turns into a sobbing mess whenever she feels any strong emotion.
- Prone to Tears: She cries very easily. Kind of odd, considering that's more of a water fairy trait in the books.
- Tears of Fear: Whenever she is afraid.
- Tears of Joy: When she's really happy.
- Tears of Remorse: If she feels bad about stuff, this happens.
- Tender Tears: ...you get the point.
- Voiced by: Christina Hendricks
A former dust-talent fairy, kicked out by Fairy Gary after she experimented on pixie dust against his orders. No longer feeling welcome in Pixie Hollow, she left and became a leader of a pirate crew, one day hoping to return to Pixie Hollow to continue her pixie dust experiments in search of treasure.
- Action Girl: She's quite tough.
- Alchemy: The main conflict of The Pirate Fairy kicks off when Zarina creates different kinds of pixie dust related to various fairy talents, using a speck of blue pixie dust as a base. She even refers to it as alchemy at the end of the movie.
- Break the Haughty: When she is betrayed by James and the other pirates, imprisoned in a lantern, and thrown to her intended death.
- Broken Bird: Heartbroken when she was fired as a dust-keeper, she fled Pixie Hollow to become a pirate captain.
- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She is never seen or even mentioned in Neverbeast or any of the follow-up comics despite the fact that she seemed to have become a permanent member of Tink's group and enthralled all of Pixie Hollow with her unique talent at the end of Pirate Fairy.
- High-Heel–Face Turn: Was the only female member of James' crew, and redeemed herself after being saved from drowning.
- Letting Her Hair Down: After she leaves Pixie Hollow and joins the pirates.
- Lightning Bruiser: Zarina is fast when she flies despite not being a Fast-Flying fairy.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: A fairy who is also a pirate.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Her face and eyes look a little more naturalistic than the rest of the Fairies, and her outfit is MUCH more complex and detailed. She looks like a character from another series transplanted into Pixie Hollow, especially when compared to the more simplistic Tinker Bell.
- "Not So Different" Remark: Zarina tries to convince Tinker Bell with their similarities in order to get her help in her pixie dust experiments, knowing it is a taboo. Fairy Gary also calls Zarina the "Tinker Bell of Dust Keepers".
- Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Most regular Fairies are only moderately stronger than you'd expect a five-inch tall person to be — it took four of them to carry a block of ice that's about six inches on each side. Zarina on the other hand successfully engages in a swordfight with a human being, and even pushes him back after blocking his sword-thrust with a blade the size of a sewing needle!
- Pirate Girl: Became part of James' pirate crew before her Heel–Face Turn.
- Remember the New Guy?: In The Pirate Fairy, everyone acts like they've known her for a while.
- Wild Hair: As pointed out by Rosetta.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Almost. Hurt that no one appreciated her talent and devastated after she was fired from her life’s purpose, Zarina stole the blue dust, which was vital to all life in Pixie Hollow. Luckily she came to her senses and took the dust back from the pirates before any damage was done.
- Voiced by: Rosario Dawson
A scout fairy.
- Ambiguously Brown: She resembles her voice actress, Rosario Dawson, so it can be assumed her ethnicity (Puerto-Rican and Cuban) is also based on her.
- Badass Adorable: For such a tiny fairy, she's incredibly tough and totally fearless — she'll take on great hawks many times her size and win.
- Determinator: Will defend Pixie Hollow to the end. As shown, she’s willing to read up on every available animal encyclopedia to identify the then-unknown NeverBeast and take every opportunity to stop it.
- Ink-Suit Actor: She resembles her voice actress, Rosario Dawson.
- Jerkass Has a Point: She seems abrasive and uptight, especially towards Fawn, but only because she's trying to protect Pixie Hollow and Fawn's openhearted-ness towards animals that may pose a risk to their society is making things difficult. Additionally, as far as she knows from the historical records, Gruff's existence could put all of Pixie Hollow's existence in danger.
- Not So Stoic: She, of all people, is one of the fairies who were crying when Gruff had to sleep for another millennium.
- No-Sell: Is suitably unimpressed by the Librarian's advances.
- Tomboy: A rough and tumble powerhouse in a slick scout uniform.
- The Stoic: She always manages to keep her cool no matter what the situation is.
All winter fairies
Fairies that reside in the Winter Woods. Unlike regular fairies, Frost Fairies are born with wings that can withstand the coldness of winter, but in exchange, they cannot withstand warmer temperatures and thus cannot visit other parts of Pixie Hollow.
- An Ice Person: Natch.
- Retcon: Their debut in Secret of the Wings replaced the Minister of Winter and his domain of fairies with winter fairies and established different lore about cold weather's effects on fairies.
A frost-talent fairy that Tinker Bell feels a strange connection to, drawing her into the Winter Woods. It turns out that they're twins, having been born from the same laugh.
- An Ice Person: Has frost-based powers.
- Demoted to Extra: After Secret of the Wings. She only has a non-speaking cameo in The Pirate Fairy.
- Genki Girl: Fun-loving and spirited.
- Long-Lost Relative: To Tinker Bell. Both were born from the same laugh, but Tink was the one who reached the Pixie Dust Tree in Pixie Hollow while Periwinkle was lost by the wind and reached the Pixie Dust Tree's branch in the Winter Woods.
- Star-Crossed Lovers/The Not-Love Interest: Periwinkle and Tinker Bell's relationship is even compared to an actual pair of star crossed lovers despite the two being sisters. Though, the actual starcrossed lovers in Secret of the Wings were Milori and Queen Clarion.
- Strong Family Resemblance: She shares the same face and wing design as Tink's.
- Wolverine Publicity: Periwinkle doesn't take over the story, but, since she's a Breakout Character and it was shortly after her first appearance in Secret of the Wings that the series was announced to be cancelled due to low toy sales, merchandise has been shilling her every chance they get. She was in The Pirate Fairy for two thirty-second cameos but got more merchandise for that movie than Iridessa, Fawn, and Vidia combined, all three of whom were present throughout the main plot!
A friend of Periwinkle and Spike, being a fellow frost-talent fairy.
- Genki Girl: Even moreso than Periwinkle; she seems to be on constant sugar high.
- Motor Mouth: Gliss is known to talk fast.
A friend of Periwinkle and Gliss, being a fellow frost-talent fairy.
- Deadpan Snarker: Usually towards Gliss.
- Lazy Bum: As a contrast to Gliss, she usually just kicks back and slacks off when she can.
- Only Sane Man: Or "Only Sane Fairy" in this case. Seems to regard herself as this, only to demonstrate almost immediately that she's Not So Above It All.
A winter animal-talent fairy. After Pixie Hollow and the Winter Woods are allowed to visit each other, he and Rosetta seem to start a romantic relationship.
- Early-Bird Cameo: He's one of the winter fairies that meets up with the messenger owls in the Winter Woods.
- Ship Tease: He introduces himself to Rosetta rather coolly, doesn't mind her geeking out over meeting a handsome guy like himself, and they hold each other during the ending.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Check, check, and check.
A glacier-talent fairy.
- Voiced by: Timothy Dalton
The leader of the frost fairies in the Winter Woods.
- …And That Little Girl Was Me: He tells Periwinkle a tale about a pair of Starcrossed Lovers, one being a fairy from the warm seasons and the other being a winter fairy, with the winter fairy attempting to cross over into Pixie Hollow and losing use of his wings. After that day, the no-crossovers rule was established. He and Clarion were those lovers.
- Big Damn Heroes: At the end of Secret of the Wings, Milori comes to save the day with his squadron of owls.
- Composite Character: He's basically a gender-swapped version of the Minister of Winter, but he has a broken wing and travels on a white bird like Rani did in the books.
- Handicapped Badass: Despite not being able to fly due to his broken wing, Lord Milori leads his forces to protect the warmer lands from a cataclysmic blizzard.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: His pushing the snow machine into the river and the machine getting stuck making endless snow was what caused a freeze that threatened destroying the Dust Tree.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: One of the heartbreaking things about Secret of the Wings is that Milori is completely right about it being dangerous for winter and warm fairies to cross the border. It is later revealed that he was the fairy whose wing was broken when he crossed the border.
- Wham Shot: After he talks to Queen Clarion while helping frost over Pixie Hollow, Clarion looks at his back... which have cracked wings, and she looks away in guilt.
Dewey "The Keeper"
- Voiced by: Jeff Bennett
- Cool Old Guy: Dewey is an elderly fairy, and an amiable sort.
- Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": He's generally known only as "the Keeper," though he invites people to call him by his real name, Dewey, often enough.
- Horse of a Different Color: He rides a gray lynx named Fiona.
- Meaningful Name: Dewey's name is take from John Dewey, a psychologist, philosopher and educational reformer who influenced education and social reform. Fittingly he's a librarian.
- Nice Guy: He keeps Tinker Bell's venture into the Winter Woods a secret from Lord Milori and advises her that it's best that if she returns to Pixie Hollow, and is guilt-tripped into letting the twins hang out for the rest of the day in the Winter Woods.
- Secret-Keeper: He keeps Tink and Peri's meeting a secret from Lord Milori. He also knew about Queen Clarion and Lord Milori's relationship.
- The Smart Guy: And how!
A young girl who believes in fairies and lives with her father. When he brings her to his summer study, she catches Tinker Bell after setting out one of her fairy houses.
- Missing Mom: Her mother is absent.
- Nice Girl: She's nothing but nice to fairies.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: She lives with her dad, and even though they're left in the same house for the summer, he's still absorbed in his work.
A busy and serious scientist that studies insects.
- Workaholic: He's busy with his work, but he's somewhat aware that this means he can't spend as much time as he should with Lizzy and laments this.
The so-called NeverBeast.
- All-Loving Hero: He cares for all life on Pixie Hollow and isn't hostile towards fairies who hurt him. But it doesn't seem to mean anything considering he may be The Antichrist... which turns out to be wrong.
- The Antichrist: Carries traits of this, being a horned and winged beast whose arrival seems to indicate the impending apocalypse. He's really an All-Loving Hero.
- But Now I Must Go: After succeeding in ending the storm, at the end of the movie, he falls asleep for another 937 years until the storm returns to threaten destruction over Pixie Hollow again; he'll stop it, and the cycle will continue.
- Deep Sleep: He awakens from a millennium-long slumber at the start of the movie and falls into one again after stopping the storm.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?:
- Fawn discovering him, taking care of him, hiding him from other people, and insisting that he's good and not a danger to society at the risk of Gruff getting possibly put down obviously brings to mind people who take in stray/wild/dangerous animals in spite of the dangers (ex. animal-borne illnesses like rabies, an improperly-trained pet that lashes out at people, being a dangerous animal that has no place being a pet and could seriously injure or kill someone, etc.).
- Him falling back to sleep at the end of the movie is reminiscent of a someone or an animal being at their deathbed, being comforted in their last moments by their family and friends.
- Future Imperfect: The fairies are led to believe that based on the only image on a scroll available in the historical archives, the NeverBeast was responsible for creating a storm that destroyed Pixie Hollow a millennium ago. In truth, he actually saved Pixie Hollow from the storm. After the fairies realize this, they try to make sure that their descendants will know the truth by writing it down and making multiple written and drawn records of Gruff's true nature.
- Gentle Giant: Despite being a huge monster, he seems rather kind and gentle if curious. But then again, it seems that he's destined to destroy Pixie Hollow... which is not true at all. The fairies make this clear when they write him down in the walls of history by creating pictures of him playing with the fairies and animals.
- Horns of Villainy: He grows a pair of ram-like horns as the storm approaches. Subverted, in that he's not evil and the purpose of the horns is to act like a lightning rod.
- "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: When the storm starts and he turns into his One-Winged Angel form, Tinker Bell tries to talk him down, apparently to no avail when he strikes her. He was still himself (making Tink Wrong Genre Savvy) and he was actually pushing Tink out of the way of a falling tree.
- One-Winged Angel: He grows horns and wings when the storm arrives and seemingly grows more hostile. However, it's subverted as it's to help him take on the storm's energy to save Pixie Hollow.
- Post-Victory Collapse: Downplayed. After the threat of the storm is gone, he's shown to be more tired, such as yawning and being more sluggish. The fairies assume that he just needs a quick nap, but Fawn realizes from his slowing heartbeat that he's about to hibernate again soon.
- Time Abyss: He only awakens every 937 years to destroy (read: save) Pixie Hollow. After he completes his mission, he returns to his deep sleep to repeat the cycle.
- Unwitting Pawn: Fawn, in denial that Gruff may be Pixie Hollow's undoing, seems to believe that any malice he causes isn't deliberate on his part. When the storm arrives and he goes One-Winged Angel, Tink tries to talk him down under this logic.
A young fairy seeking out her talent. When Mother Dove and her egg are put in danger by Kyto, she urges children to clap, revealing that she is a clapping-talent fairy.
- Audience Surrogate: Fills this role in Fairy Dust & The Quest For The Egg. She needs things explained to her, and is corrected when she says things like a human would.
- The Bus Came Back: After not appearing in the movies, she makes her reappearance in the franchise in The Never Girls.
- Clap If You Believe: Her talent is clapping, that is, urging children to clap if they believe in order to save fairies. This removes the frightening deaths-by-disbelief that occur in the first book.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: In Fairy Dust & The Quest For The Egg. Prilla is the only known fairy who didn't know her talent upon arrival in Never Land.
- Genki Girl: Highly energetic, one of her Character Tics is that she'll do cartwheels in the air when she's happy. Actually screws over the fairies in the first book, as the cartwheel knocks a day's ration of fairy dust out of Rani's hand.
- Morality Pet: One of the few fairies Vidia will be genuinely nice to.
- Nice Girl: One of the sweetest and kindest fairies you can imagine. In Fairy Dust & The Quest For The Egg, Rani at one point speculates if Prilla's talent is "being sweet."
- Teleporters and Transporters: Prilla's talent is instantly "blinking" to the Mainland. It works almost exactly like Prue's Astral Projection in Charmed.
- Unreliable Illustrator: David Christiana draws Prilla to look like a child in Gail Carson Levine's books, even though it's explicitly said that she wouldn't look like a child to a human.
An animal-talent fairy. She was Mother Dove's primary helper and caretaker in the books. In one, she is lured away from Mother Dove so that Vidia could steal more of her feathers for her "special dust", and in another, she solves the problem that's caused a "Great Berry Battle" between the animals of Never Land.
- Animal Lover: Has sympathy for all animals, including insects and predators.
- Girlish Pigtails: Pretty girly, and has these.
- Redhead In Green: Her dress is made of green leaves, and a redhead.
A light-talent fairy, and the key one in the books. A key attribute is that she works too hard, taking on every responsibility for herself. Such as training three brand-new light-talents all by herself during a trying time.
- Early-Installment Weirdness: Was referred to as "Moth" in her first appearance. This was apparently Retconned so that "Moth" is her nickname. Though pretty much everyone calls her Fira after that, meaning that someone clearly decided she needs to be called "Fira" from now on. She does not appear in Levine's second book at all.
A wingless water-talent fairy with a timid, kindly personality. Prone to finishing others' sentences (more pronounced in Levine's book). She was a major character in Fairy Dust and the Quest For The Egg, giving up her wings so that Mother Dove's egg could be saved, and thus all of Pixie Hollow. She also features heavily in the two sequel novels, and gets a few chapter books of her own.
- An Arm and a Leg: Rani had to trade her wings to save Pixie Hollow.
- The Bus Came Back: After not appearing in the movies, she returns to the franchise in The Never Girls.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Is initially so desperate to swim that she tries all manner of absurd experiments to stop her wings from getting waterlogged, including coating them in dried egg and doing... ''something'' with a balloon. She also has a bat living in her head and sometimes acts a bit strange because of it. She's also extremely prone to Tender Tears.
- Determinator: Very, very persistent. She gave up her wings almost without a thought, however much she was scared of disabling herself.
- Disability Superpower: Fairy wings soak up water, making it impossible to swim. Since Rani has no wings, she doesn't have this problem.
- Fictional Disability: She loses her wings in the first book, making her the only wingless fairy in the series. The movies added Lord Milori, who broke his wings in an accident and thus can't fly, but by that point Rani had been Adapted Out, leaving them both alone in their disability in their respective canons.
- Forced Transformation: Rani is transformed into a bat by mermaid song in the second book, with her consciousness trapped inside. By the end, the bat agrees to trade places with her, becoming a kind of Greek Chorus in her mind. This feature does not appear in the chapter books, as the second novel was written after most of them.
- Heroic Sacrifice: She gave up her wings to save Mother Dove's egg, thus saving Pixie Hollow.
- Nice Girl: Kind, friendly, and sweet.
- Meaningful Name: Means 'Queen'.
- Verbal Tic: She has a habit of finishing other people's sentences, occasionally getting it wrong. After Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand, she also mentions Rani-bat frequently.
A garden-talent fairy. Once had a garden of her own, but went away for a while and it was given to another.
- Insufferable Genius: Offers advice to other garden-talent fairies, whether they want it or not. Most find this annoying, and only Lily eventually befriends her.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Usually.
- Un-Sorcerer: Iris is incomplete. She doesn't instinctively know how to take care of plants and has to write down what she learns in a notebook to remember it.
A garden-talent fairy.
- The Quiet One: She usually likes being alone, and does not talk much.
A fast-flying-talent fairy.
An art-talent fairy, considered to be the best of her talent in Pixie Hollow. Once had to deal with every fairy around wanting to have their portrait painted.
- Artsy Beret: Not literally, because her clothes are made of flowers like everyone else's, but she has a hat made of an acorn top that happens to look a lot like a beret.
- "I just wanted everyone to feel good. That's why I bake. To fill fairies with goodness."
A baking-talent fairy, and head of the kitchen. Shows up more often in the short picture-books, owing to the pleasing appearance of her treats. Only seen briefly in most books, but gets one feature appearance, in which she suffers from exhaustion and is temporarily replaced by another. Fearing the loss of her kitchen and talent, she bakes a magical cake, learning all about how the other talents bring food to the kitchen in the process.
- The Cameo: She and her shop made appearances in Pixie Hollow Online as a part of a minigame/shop. She also pops up frequently in other chapter books, whenever the characters eat.
A scout fairy.
A music talent, who shocks the other fairies by attempting to bring new instruments and styles into the orchestra, which has been set in stone for years. This creates a large schism between all the music talents, until they show that their styles merge well together. Trill only appears in one chapter book.
The closest thing to pure goodness in Pixie Hollow. After the destruction of the Pixie Dust Tree, she became Pixie Hollow's newest (but finite) source for pixie dust. The quest to fix her broken egg was the main point of the first novel. In the second, she desperately tries to keep a magic wand out of Never Land, and must deal with the "wand madness" suffered by all the fairies when it arrives.
- Big Good: As long as she sits on her egg and that egg remains unharmed, the people of Never Land will never grow old.
- Out of Focus: Appears frequently in the first and second novels, but is absent from almost all of the chapter books, since those are less serious and usually more "slice of life". One of her only appearances was when Beck had to protect her from more feather-thievery from Vidia.
- "Sizzle! Roast! Fry! Crisped another fairy!"
An evil dragon that resides in Never Land, permanently chained to a rock. He jealously guards a hoard, as dragons are intelligent but have tiny hearts and no imagination, so can only find joy by looking at their rarities. At one point, he is forced to battle a new, rival dragon in the Never Girls series.
- Big Bad: He attempts to kill Mother Dove and ruin her egg, which would destroy all of the magic in Never Land (meaning fairies could no longer fly, immortal beings like Peter Pan would rapidly age and die, et cetera.) He's also so evil that he corrupts Mother Dove's egg when Prilla, Rani, and Vidia ask him to fix it.
- Dragon Hoard: He's obsessed with his. By the end of the trilogy, he has Captain Hook's cigarette holder, a mermaid's comb, Ree's crown and shield, and Rani's wings. His desire to expand his collection seems to end with the fairies themselves, though—while another dragon imprisoned Clarion, believing her to be valuable in her own right, Kyto wanted nothing to do with any fairy save for Vidia and wanted to outright kill the rest.
- Interspecies Romance: Has a thing for Vidia.
- Playing with Fire: He uses his fiery breath to incinerate seven people.
- Would Hurt a Child: At the climax of Fairies and the Quest for Never Land, he gives Gwendolyn Carlisle, Wendy's young descendent, severe burns.
- Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: The other books aren't exactly saccharine per se, but the rest of the trilogy didn't feature villains half as evil as Kyto; the first book's central conflict was a natural disaster, and the second dealt with mermaids who were more catty and snobbish than anything. Kyto was the first villain who seriously wished harm upon the main cast, and who actually killed multiple people (granted, the mermaids caused fairies to die, too, but indirectly via sending a flood that resulted in drownings.) Kyto even made a game out of seeing how many fairies he could burn to death, and took Ree's crown and shield as "peace offerings" just to double cross her later.
Gwendolyn Jane Mary Darling Carlisle
A descendant of Wendy Darling. After she was passed down Wendy's "kiss" necklace for her seventh birthday by her mother, she began to experience visions of being in Fairy Haven.
- Arbitrary Skepticism: Averted. Gwendolyn's grandmother, mother, and father don't just believe in Neverland, but they know it exists. Gwendolyn's mother and grandmother have gone on adventures with Peter Pan in their youth and they knew that Gwendolyn would also experience visions from the necklace. Mr. Carlisle believes them.
- Dead Guy Junior: She is named after Wendy (whose name may have been derived from Gwendolyn), Jane (Wendy's daughter), and Mary (Wendy's mother).
- Generation Xerox: After seeing her dressed up nicely for her birthday, her grandmother claims that she looks just like Wendy, which is proven by an old scrapbook she has containing old photos of a young Wendy.
- Legacy Character: It's not clear how how far descended she is from Wendy other than that it's been a century (i.e. the present day) since Wendy was a girl, and her grandmother (who is also a Darling) refers to Wendy by name and doesn't indicate how she's related to her. Since it's odd to refer to your parent by name, her grandmother might've been Wendy's granddaughter at the very least (which is possible, since Wendy does have a granddaughter in the source material).
- No Name Given: Gwendolyn's grandmother, mother, and father go unnamed.
- Second Love: Mr. Carlisle believes his wife and mother-in-law's stories about Neverland, and jokes that his wife still has a Precocious Crush on Peter.
Never Land Mermaids
Exactly What It Says on the Tin. A group of mermaids who inhabit Never Land's Mermaid Lagoon.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Unlike the mermaids in Peter Pan, these mermaids are depicted with blue, green, and purple skin (in the illustrations, at least.)
- Can't Live with Them, Can't Live without Them: Soop and Pah seem to go through periods of loathing each other followed by periods of close friendship. In one book, they render each other deaf/illiterate and mute/illegible, respectively, over a petty argument. They also mention that there was a time when they didn't speak for months over another small conflict.
- Drama Queen: Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand begins with Soop singing a ballad about the fact that Rani didn't give her a wand quickly enough. Later, Soop sends a flood that kills people just to get the fairies to give her the wand... and after they do finally give her the wand, she immediately uses its magic to ruin her and Pah's lives over an argument (see Can't Live with Them, Can't Live without Them above.)
- It's All About Me: The few mermaids the reader sees are obnoxiously self-centered. Soop demands a fairy wand in exchange for her comb, knowing full well that the Never fairies don't even have wands, and sends a flood that kills several fairies after she doesn't get said wand quickly enough.
- Our Mermaids Are Different: They look like typical fantasy mermaids, but they're almost universally petty, shallow, and narcissistic. They're indifferent to the fairies at best, and outright hostile at worst (although most of that hostility comes from the fact that they don't really understand or care about the consequences of their actions; they didn't intend to kill several fairies with their enchanted flood, but they didn't seem to mind the deaths, either.)
- Sirens Are Mermaids: Like mythical sirens, they have enthralling voices that can control and transform people. Rani is accidentally transformed into a bat by mermaid song.
- Water Is Womanly: Some illustrations depict mermen, but every significant, named mermaid is female.
A race of small, elf-like banana farmers.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Two tiffen children free Kyto because he complained about being sad/in pain in his prison on Torth Mountain.
- Hufflepuff House: Aside from the two children that free Kyto, they never get any page-time, and they didn't appear in the movies at all. This is despite the fact that they're stated to be a trade partner for Fairy Haven.
- Pointy Ears: The two illustrated tiffens have huge, pointed elephant ears.
- Ugly Cute
The Great Wanded Fairies
Another fairy kingdom, located some distance from Neverland. They're friendly and optimistic, but also patronizing, silly, and sometimes dangerous. Their name comes from the fact that they use wands to instantly grant all of their wishes. While this makes them powerful, it's also made them incredibly shallow and lazy.
- Beware the Silly Ones: They may be Lazy Bums, but they have access to powerful wands that can grant their every wish in an instant. When the queen, Tutupia, sees Tinker Bell for the first time, she writes her off as a "prank" and vanishes her into thin air.
- Innocently Insensitive: When they see the Neverland fairies for the first time, they call them "cute" over and over again, not realizing this is a faux pas. They also call pixie dust "magic dirt" and act incredulous and dismissive of the Neverland way of life.
- Lazy Bum: They don't cook, clean, or do much of anything except party and relax.
- Mythology Gag: As magical fairies wielding wands, one could think they're related to the Blue Fairy and the Three Good Fairies, though the Great Wanded Fairies being described as being seven feet tall may throw a wrench in that.
- Our Fairies Are Different: Unlike the Never fairies, they're seven feet tall, and have access to incredibly powerful, dangerous magic with abilities far beyond that of pixie dust, but only by using wands.
- Sacred Hospitality: After Tutupia realizes that Tink, Clarion, and Rani are real and not just magic visions, she insists on providing them with a meal and a place to sleep, and refuses to take "no" for an answer even though the trio is operating under a major time crunch. When they finally go to leave, she gives them so many impractical presents that their balloon carrier is too weighed down to fly and Clarion is forced to throw them overboard.
The Never Girls
The Never Girls
- Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Has green eyes and ginger hair.
- The Leader: Of her friends.
Pixie Hollow's first ever fire-talent fairy. The only new fairy introduced after the ending of the chapter books and film franchise.
- Playing with Fire: Her power.
- Power Incontinence: Upon birth, of course, she is unable to properly control her fire powers. This is met with suspicion by other fairies, leading to them blaming her for the fiery destruction on Pixie Hollow that was actually caused by a new dragon in Never Land.
