1. The Twin Lakes frolick is a small community of fair folk in Blaine County, Idaho. While witch covens are led by witch heads who inherited their title via their bloodline, and elven clans democratically elect their leaders, fairy frolicks are stateless, seemingly anarchist communities in where the only ruling bodies are parents over their minor offspring. That’s not to say fair folk do not abide by any laws; they are still Enchanters, bound by the rules of magick and laws of the occult realm. There are many types of fairies, and naiads–also known as water nymphs–are becoming rarer as humans pollute their freshwater masses.
2. Meri’s the reporter for the Enchanter Student Council, meaning they work closely with Dante, Sherie Smyth, and the Journalism Club. They’re also a member of the STEM, baking, and environmental clubs, and an organizer for the nonbinary department of the LGBTQIA+ Alliance. If they’re not reporting about Enchanter-specific rulings made by the council, they’re handing over article ideas regarding hot button issues (mainly about animal and environmental conservation) to Fiona.
3. Meridian’s been dating Tyler Woodward, a dryad from their frolick, on and off. When they aren’t dating Tyler, they seem to find themselves gravitating toward oread Autumn Jones from the neighboring Sawtooth frolick. No one knows about this except for their best friend Mortimer Glossian, a fairy who knows how deeply Tyler would be hurt by this knowledge.
4. The type of magick a fairy practices depends on the element of their particular species: dryads, anthousai, and meliae have plant magick; oreads, napaeae, leimoniads, auloniads, and alseids use earth magick; naiads, nereids, and oceanids practice water magick; nepheliads and hyades have storm magick, aurae have wind magick, hesperides practice fire and light magick, pleiades are talented shadow and cosmic magick users. There are a few rare fairies, such as the purely telempathic maenads and the fire-wielding dracaenae, but most can blend in with mortal human beings. Meridian is a naiad, and their species specializes in blessing water with their tears for spells, melting into water, and punishing those who pollute/litter by luring them into the lake and rightfully drowning them. 🙂
5. Meri loathes harmful stereotypes. They love to bake, and find the whole “don’t accept food from fairies” myth to really put a damper on their hobby. Fairy food is only toxic or enchanting if made with ill intentions; their only intention is to see the look of satisfaction or pure contentment on a person’s face after tasting their dish. The “fairies can’t lie” myth makes everyone far too naive when interacting with them, but it makes for great entertainment. And being a nymph doesn’t make them a lust-driven lunatic–they just have a healthy sex life.
