Most butterfairies follow the same basic anatomy. Much like regular fairies, they have small bodies, about the size of a human child. As babies, butterfairies have triangular shaped bodies, compared to the ball shaped bodies of fairy babies. They have a pair of butterfly-like wings, and crowns that float above their heads. Butterfairies are almost always seen floating. Much like regular fairies, butterfairies are able to live forever, and although they age and mature just like humans do, it takes them much longer to get through adulthood than a human.
