Shay'mal was a member of the First Fae, a linage which traced itself back to the first pixie to be given life by Gaia. Unlike most of her kind, Shay'mal cared nothing for Gaia nor caring for nature. What drove her was the acquisition of beautiful things; gems, shiny rocks, unique statues, handsome men... Anything of visual appeal which has ever gone missing, odds are good that Shay'mal has it stored in her secret cave, located somewhere in time. You see, to a fae, time and space are one and the same. She could steal your tea cup right out from under your nose and then go back to rob Tutankhamun's tomb the very second it was sealed without a fraction of a planck going by. Yes, she is a tricky little thing.
