The Dark Faeries, also known as Darkness Faeries, are one of the six types of faeries that inhabit Neopia. They are associated with the magical element of darkness. In general, Dark Faeries have bat-like wings and purple-hued skin. They often have vibrant purple hair and purple eyes.
Because of their dark nature, Dark Faeries often turn to evil and become villains, most notably The Darkest Faerie. This does not mean that all dark faeries are evil, however. Delina, for example, is a benevolent Dark Faerie that helps out Neopians by crafting NC Mall items.
