Half-fey is an inherited template that can be added to any corporeal living creature referred to hereafter as the base creature. The creatures type changes to fey. It rises all the base creature's statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

Hit Dice: Change to d6.

Speed: All half-fey have butterfly-like wings unless the base creature has wings already. A half-fey that did not already have wings gains a fly speed equal to twice the base creature's fastest mode of movement, with good maneuverability.

Special Attacks: A half-fey with Wisdom or Charisma of 8 or higher (after the ability score adjustments noted below) gains spell-like abilities, rising its Hit Dice as its caster level. The table below lists the abilities available. These abilities are cumulative; a half-fey with 3 HD can use the abilities on the 1-2 HD row on the table as well as those on the 3-4 HD row. When a half-fey gets a choice between two abilities (such as faerie fire or glitterdust at 1-2 HD), it can choose anew between these abilities each day.
