The Faeling is a flying critter which naturally spawns in the Aether. Most critters that come into contact with Shimmer will also transform into Faelings. Faelings can pass through blocks and try to fly away from the player if they get too close.

The Faeling has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

The Faeling can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Faeling in a Bottle). Once crafted, the Faeling cannot be released again, unless the furniture item is de-crafted via Shimmer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).
