All Tinker Fairies
All animal fairies
All Light Fairies
All Water Fairies
All Garden Fairies
- 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
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.

A tinker-talent fairy.
- 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.
- Adaptation Personality Change: In the original Peter Pan movie and Gail Carson Levine's books, she was generally snarky, jealous, and sometimes 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.
- Action Girl: She likes adventure big time.
- Adaptational Nice Girl: She's much nicer and more likable in this series than in her original portrayal. Of course, her original portrayal is supposed to take place after the series...
- 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 has some of Tink's traist from Peter Pan, combined with some of Prilla's traits from the books. Prilla herself was Adapted Out and her subplot about finding her talent was given to Tink.
- 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. They were reckless, sure, but even Tinker Bell knows it wasn't a good idea to tamper with pixie dust.
- Fairy Sexy: Tinker Bell's outfit is skimpy even by fairy standards.
- 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 Tinkerbell Preview shorts.
- 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 family 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.
- 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.
- Plucky Girl: Quite the plucky one, we may add.
- Prim and Proper Bun: Has a bun.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Constantly. In the films, she's often the direct source of her own problems.
- 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.
- She's Got Legs: 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.
- Suddenly Voiced: Having been The Voiceless in animation and only spoken in comics prior to these movies.
- 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 a deer specie.
- Nice Girl: She's willing to help out any animal, even if it puts her in danger.
- 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: Fills the Latina slot in the movies, 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.
- Adaptational Personality Change: Iridessa Beyond The Sea describes her explicitly as "a brave fairy", whereas the movie version is primarily known for her cowardice.
- Ambiguous Disorder: She has beyond normal levels of anxiety and is frequently panicky.
- Flanderization: Over time, Iridessa's gotten more anxious and panicky.
- Meaningful Name: Comes from 'Iridescent'.
- Nervous Wreck: Iridessa constantly is neurotic and freaks out easily.
- Properly Paranoid: Very squeamish and since getting to know Tinker Bell, usually dreads whatever invention she comes up with.
- Sassy Black Woman: At times.
- Token Minority: Fills the black slot in the films.
- 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.
- 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.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair is extremely long.
- Token Minority: Fills the Asian slot in the films.
- 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.
- 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.
- Hartman Hips: They are huge. Even compared to Tinker Bell's!
- 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 Tomboy's Fawn 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: She's quite a sum less malicious and selfish than her book counterpart.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 caring 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.
- HeelFace 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.
- 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.
- Rapunzel Hair: Her hair almost reaches her feet.
- 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.
- Smug Snake: She's highly 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.
- Took a Level in Kindness: After the first movie.
- 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.

A dust-talent fairy that befriends Tinker Bell.
- Adorkable: He sure has had his moments.
- 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 Hat: Has an acorn top as a hat.
- 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.
- 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
The queen of all fairies in Pixie Hollow. Called "Queen Ree" as a nickname in the books only.
- ...And That Little Girl Was Me: The story she tells to Tinker Bell about the Starcrossed Lovers, one from the warmer seasons, one from the Winter Woods, was about her and Lord Milori, respectively.
- Does Not Like Shoes: At least according to the chapter book story "Barefoot."
- 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 leads the fairies in a battle against the dragon Kyto using an earring as a shield.
- Cool Crown: Owns one significant crown in the books, and a whole chest of them in the movies.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: 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.

Clank and Bobble
Two tinker fairies that introduce the newborn Tinker Bell to Pixie Hollow.
- Adorkable: Bobble is very cute, clumsy, and awkward.
- 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.
- 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 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
- 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.

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.

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.

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.
- Beauty Mark: One under her left eye.
- 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-HeelFace 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. Opposite of the more simplistic Tinker Bell.
- Not So Different: Zarina tries to convince Tinker Bell they're this 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 HeelFace 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 lifes 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, shes 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.
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.
- 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.
A friend of Periwinkle and Gliss, being a fellow frost-talent fairy.
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.
- 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.

- 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.
- 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.
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 Anti-Christ... which turns out to be wrong.
- The Anti-Christ: 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.
- 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 Hat: A hat made of a leaf.
- 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.
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.
- Baleful Polymorph: 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.
- The Bus Came Back: After not appearing in the movies, she returns to the franchise in The Never Girls.
- An Arm and a Leg: Rani had to trade her wings to save Pixie Hollow.
- 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 several books in, making her the only wingless fairy around.
- 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'.
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.
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.
- "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.
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.
The Never Girls
The Never Girls
Pixie Hollow's first ever fire-talent fairy. The only new fairy introduced after the ending of the chapter books and film franchise.
