The Sims 3 Supernatural introduces the Fairy, a type of Sim able to use magic to pull tricks, benefit themselves and others with auras, and have a natural connection to nature. All Fairies have the Green Thumb trait, so you should not select this on any Sim you intend to make a Fairy. This guide covers most things about this new Supernatural life state, and includes a list of all unlocks at each Fairy skill level.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies  Fairies can Fly
The 'I Can Fly' Interaction Fairies start with.

Becoming a Fairy
To become a Fairy, make your Sim using the Supernatural type selector in Create-a-Sim or acquire a Bottled Blessing of the Fae for around $2000 in the Alchemy store. You can also make one yourself using Supernatural's Alchemy Skill. Fairies have the same basic needs as other Sims, but live five times longer with 100 days spent in Young Adult.

When creating your Sim, be sure to look to the basics tab in CAS so that you can select Fairy Basics, which allows you to choose your Fairy's wing color and design.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies  Flying
All Fairies can Fly instead of running and will move at an increased rate.

Learning New Fairy Abilities
Fairies like other Supernatural life state additions can level up to learn new abilities. They receive experience any time they do something that consumes Magic Power. While running an Aura your Fairy is constantly gaining experience in the hidden Fairy Magic skill. So, continue to act as a Fairy and use those abilities and your Sim will level up naturally. Using Bloom while running an aura is perhaps the best, most useful way to level up but you do not unlock it until level 5.

Here is a list of all Fairy abilities and the levels at which they unlock:

Fairy Magic Skill Levels
LevelUnlock 1Unlock 2
0Hot Head: Makes a Sim's head heat up, blowing steam out their ears. The target will be singed.Chattering Teeth: Blows frost that makes a Sim cold.
0I Can Fly: Do a flying maneuver in place, pictured above. This gives a big, fast boost to Fun, and using this just a few times can fill the meter.Aura of Soothing: Gives a +20 moodlet that affects all nearby Sims including the Fairy. Consumes power while active and grants XP.
1Aura of Creativity: Sims perform better in Music (all instruments), Painting and Writing while under this Aura.Flight of Felicity: Bless a Sim, allowing them to fly like a Fairy. (replaces run)
2Fairy Trap Toilet: Causes water to gush when a Sim flushes the toiletFairy Trap Shower: Puts dye in the shampoo
3Fairy Repair: Magically repair a broken object.Aura of Body and Mind: Logic, Charisma, and Athletic performance is improved.
4Fairy Trap Trashcan: Makes trash explode all around when a Sim uses the can.Tummy Twister: make a Sim belch, embarassing them
5Bloom: Advances a Plant's growth one level or makes it harvestable. Subject of the Greener Gardens Lifetime Wish. See the section toward the bottom of this guide for detailed information.
6Fairy Trap Sofa/Loveseat: Makes a Sim fall asleep when this is used.Skivvies: Another embarassing prank, strip a Sim down to underwear.
7Gold and Toads: Sims will vomit gold or toads nearly a dozen times over six hours. Each pile of gold is worth $77, and they rarely seem to vomit toads. While Sims do make some money while vomiting gold, it may be interrupting a more lucrative activity!
8Fairy Trap Mailbox Makes bees fly out of the mailbox and attack the Sim.
9Fairy Trap LLAMA: The LLAMA teleporters that come with Supernatural can be trapped with this, which causes a Sim to travel to the wrong location - boring.
10Inner Beauty: Use this on pretty but mean Sims who need to learn how to behave. The curse lasts 24h and any time they use a mean interaction it is reset. The whole time, they will be horribly ugly and other Sims may gawk and make fun. There's a Lifetime Wish for this, Magic Makeover. Its goal is to cast Inner Beauty 12 times and reach level 10 in Charisma.
The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies  Fairies stacking auras
Have Fairies use different auras for maximum effect.

Magic Power
Fairies, like Witches, consume magic power to use their abilities. Everything from the I Can Fly interaction you start with, to pranks and auras will consume this resource over time. To regenerate Magic Power faster, go inside a Fairy House or use the new Train Set which a Fairy can shrink down to ride. The bar will fill over about 4 hours' time on its own. Depleting your Magic Power results in a 6 hour negative moodlet, preventing you from using Fairy Powers.

During a Full Moon, Fairies get a +40 moodlet along with the +40 Lunatic boost. They are also able to get a +20 moodlet, and share it with all around with their Soothing Aura ability. The will also get some solid, long-lasting moodlets from pulling Fairy Tricks on Sims.

Fairy Babies
Two Fairies would naturally have a Fairy Baby, but any other combination leaves a 50% chance the offspring will be a Fairy. Fairy Children can perform a few tricks, but cannot gain levels in their Fairy abilities until their Teenage years.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies  casting Flight of Felicity

Fairy Dust, Flight of Felicity, and Interations
Fairies get several social interactions, such as bragging about wing color and how many pranks they've pulled. Those are great for varying conversations, with several found only under the Special category when picking Socials. The most interesting come from the other Sim's perspective. They can ask for a blessing, which gives the Flight of Felicity. This makes normal Sims float above the ground and move at the same increased speed as a Fairy. They can also request Fairy Dust through the Friendly menu, which has no value but allows you to use this blessing at will on yourself or another Sim.

A good shot of a Fairy in their smaller form.

Fairies can shrink and float into certain lights, like the mood light that comes with Supernatural. They are Drawn to the Light like a moth. This can shock them, and I'm not sure on the purpose although it's likely there more for autonomous actions and humor. There may be other objects Fairies can interact with share your revelations at the bottom of the guide in the comments section.

A Fairy House

Fairy Houses
One of the new things you can buy is the Fairy House (or Castle), which is basically a little rabbit hole (find both House and Castle under Outdoor - Outdoor Activities). Fairies can demonstrate their ability to transform into a smaller form and enter these homes. Inside, they can drink Pollen Punch, which fills a bit of hunger and can give a 2h +50 moodlet. Not as good as a meal, though it is a bonus. Also, sleeping in the Fairy House does not give a mood boost from its Well Rested moodlet. Fairies can also throw a party, and may get a positive moodlet if it's good. When you throw the party, other Fairies on the lot may come to the House. The music will give a positive moodlet, and your Fairy can raise the fun motive by dancing.

As a reader pointed out below, Fairy Houses are portable and are the best item to pack while adventuring with World Adventures. This may make Fairies not only the best at gardening, but Adventuring as well. You have fun, hunger, and energy in one small package that often fits where a tent does not.

Forum member forloveofcake pointed out that a Fairy's aura doesn't consume magic while in the Fairy House, and confirms they continue to receive Fairy Magic skill experience.

Fairy Tricks
Fairies can perform two types of trick. First are the social interaction variety, which can give some skill experience and have various effects. Second, they'll learn Traps, which can be placed on objects like chairs, the toilet, or mailbox. When a Sim springs the Trap, your Fairy Sim will get a +15 12h moodlet. Not a bad reward. So, how can we capitalize on this?

Good Traits for Fairies
Since Fairies can do tricks at any age, the Rebellious trait suits them. Fairy Tricks count as rebelling and give a +15 12h moodlet (Fight the Power). Evil is also helpful, as Tricks will trigger the Fiendishly Delighted moodlet giving another +15 for 6 hours. That's a lot for one trick, but it takes up several traits. I strongly recommend Rebellious, but you can live without Evil. Childish was also tested but did nothing for the Sim, although we suspect they may perform more tricks autonomously with this trait. Big thanks to Forum Moderator samoht04 for testing these and feeding me results!

As mentioned in the intro (but repeated here in case you missed it) Fairies get all the benefits of the Green Thumb trait aside from bonus skill experience, so it is wasted on them. Instead, take Gatherer which will further boost the quality of anything you plant and give additional produce when harvesting them.

The Sims 3 Supernatural Fairies  A Fairy makes a plant Bloom so that it can be harvested immediately
A Fairy casts Bloom

Fairy Bloom Ability
At level 5, Fairies get the Bloom ability. This will make a mature plant instantly harvestable. What is more, it will bump a growing plant up one level. So, cast bloom a few times on a just-planted seed and you'll have the next generation of plants in your hands. Given the usually slow pace of Gardening, this is a big way to make money. Get to the Perfect level and start planting a large crop. You can then use Bloom and go for the Fairy Lifetime Wish Greener Gardens, to make 100 plants bloom and reach level 10 in Gardening. The Perfect Garden would also be an easy to attain LTW for a Fairy.

King of the Fae Lifetime Reward
You can purchase this LTR for 30,000 happiness. This will give you the ability to change your Fairy's wings and wing color at any time. Magic will also be consumed at a reduced rate when using Fairy abilities, and your Sim is able to summon any other Faeries they have met.

Can a fairy marry a non fairy? I have a fairy and a werewolf and they've been a romantic interest for a while. Usually the option to go steady or purpose comes up once a sim's social interactions come up to extremely irresistible. But for some reason it's not coming up. i even turned one back into a human and still nothing.. any one have this problem?

yes, you can marry a fairy and non fairy type. i have a human and fairy married. took them awhile to marry though.

I had a Fairy and Werewolf already married from the beginning but discovered the if you want to get pregnant the werewolf has to be in human form...might be the same for other interactions.

Indigo Ivy says...
I created a family of two sims, a werewolf male and a fairy female and changed their relationship to boyfriend/girlfriend. They are now married and have a werewolf son, so it is possible, you just need to be patient. Perhaps their astrological star signs clash; that tends to make a difference regarding relationships in the sims.

I can't figure out why I don't have the ''bloom'' option with my fairy. Do I have to have a certain trait or something??

You need to have a level 5 fairy skill, just turn on Aura of Soothing and let it stay on until it says you've gotten bloom! :)

John says...
Ok, spent the major part of the day trying to figure out how to create a fairy, it shows in CAS but it does nothing this is also the same for the Witch, do they have to have an exixer first to become a fairy or a witch? I can have a sim a ghost, a vampire, a werewolf, and a genie but the option to have a witch or a fairy just isn't happening, or am I doing something wrong?

I found a wild fairy horse but the world accidentally got deleted. Now any world I make doesn't have it. arrgh for random generating! I would love to be able to put wings on any animal!

Cece says...
Lessica I had the same problem with my family I wanted to try to get a vampire and fariy married and the interactions took longer than normal to appear it even took awhile for the try for baby interaction. Plus I found out there is no hybrids you ethier get a fairy or in my case a would of been awsome to get a fairy vampire.

I have had a fairy interact with the claw before. You click cheat the system and the fairy will shrink,fly in,and pick a prize at random. I got a valuable gem from this! But that only happened once and most of the time the things I get are pretty cheap.

I tested fairies and found that they do not have the green thumb trait built in. I gave four sims the same traits, just the first 5 on the list, and they all got their first gardening point at the exact same minute. I did give one fairy the green thumb trait and she got her skill point faster than the others, one of them being a fairy. Fairies do not have the green thumb trait built as far as I can tell.
They are able to talk to plants and seem to get the growth bonus when planting a seed as well, but I did edit the page to indicate they do not get skill experience. Did not test just now if they can revive dead plants if fairy magic is low (as opposed to bloom)

In my game, my fairy don't have the option to revive my two death flower bushes. So, I'm guessing they can't.

I have a fairy who is level 10 in gardening, level 9 fairy based off the list of unlocks and she can revive plants. Including the death flower

Just wanted to mention something I found regarding the Gatherer trait that you recommend instead of Green Thumb. It breaks money trees sometimes and makes them not be able to be harvested after the first few times. I never make a gardener anymore with this trait because I like money trees.

All children that are born fairies will automatically have the same wings as their mother. (mom was a fairy/dad was a witch) It may have a different outcome if both parents were fairies. I'm still testing different outcomes. I had two children and changed wing type and wing color and both children inherited those characteristics accordingly.
13th September 2012 1:13am
Winry says...
I have the same combination (witch dad and fairy mother) but the fairy child got completely random wings, not the same shape or color than his mother.

Jazz says...
With fairy babies you can tell the color of their wings by looking at the sparkles floating around them. :)

Myst says...
I was having an issue not being able to use my magic as a fairy and I tried everything I could think of that would be causing the problem. Thankfully the alchemist skill came in handy because i was able to turn myself from fae to human then back to a fairy and my magic has worked fine since then.

Learned a lot with this particular guide so thank you. Didn't know about the special interactions with other supernaturals or with the mood lamp. Gonna go try it out. I do have one question. I have a top level fairy with Queen of the Fae so that may play a part, but I am wondering if anybody else has input as to what effects the number of little twinkling fairies that float around my fairy. Magic level doesn't seem to effect it as as I've had a lot of little floaters (hehe) when there's little to no magic and just a few when there's a lot of magic and visa versa. Mood also doesn't seem to play a part as I can't remember the last time I was below elated. I'm sure it's just random, but I am curious.

My fairy went to watch a unicorn and surprise the unicorn is fascinated by the fairy, he has a fairy thought bubble over its heads and follows her around. I guess magic attracts magic?
17th September 2012 4:35am
Bronwyn says...
How do you find a unicorn, anyway? I've never seen one, only ordinary wild horses. I didn't know unicorns existed until I saw the LTW that wants you to adopt one.
29th October 2012 7:46pm
Victoria says...
Most wild horses hang around lakes, waterfalls, and fishing spots. Find a wild horse hang out, and check there every night at about midnight. You will see a rainbow. I had to go there dozens of times before I finally found one. You then have to befriend it in order to add it to your household.

I used my fairy dust from my inventory on myself to see what it did, and now I have none :/ What does it actually do? It didn't really do anything on me...and does anyone know how to get more? =S loving being a fairy but it's a bit more complicated lol!

My sim got punked by a fairy trap in the llama transport and turned into a tragic clown who can't walk without tripping over his own feet. Now if I could just figure out how to change him back!

My sim was able to rid herself of Inner Beauty with about 16 hours to spare by going to the Fairy Arboretum and searching for fairies. She did not actually meet a fairy, but she got her hands on some fairy dust and used it on herself. Just a helpful hint.

I keep seeing comments about Vault of Antiquity, Fae Ray Arboretum, etc. I installed Supernatural ( already had pets installed) and only got Vargas and the alchemy store. Checked in edit town and can't find any of them there. Any ideas?

Are you playing in moonlight falls? They are automatically there. If you want to put them in you other towns you have to add them to your clipboard.
