In the books

She is referred to as Moth in Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, she lit up the Home Tree for Prilla's arrival. Later she was shown at the arrival, most likely hoping that Prilla is a light-talent.

At the beginning of The Trouble with Tink, she was seen playing fairy tag with the other fairies until a hawk attacked. Her name by this point is given as Fira.

She was seen briefly in Lily's Pesky Plant, when Queen Clarion asked her to shine light on the plant that turned out to be a ever tree.

In Rani in the Mermaid Lagoon, she was seen talking to Rani complimenting the fountain not knowing that Rani didn't make it. When Rani came back, she was happy to see her and hugged her

She was mentioned in Fairies and the Quest for Never Land, when Mother Dove asked someone to get her but ended up her asking for everyone to come.

Her energy is put to the test when the fireflies come down with the firefly flu in Fira and the Full Moon. She and the other light-talent fairies are left short handed and exhausted from all the extra work. Fira thinks her problems are solved with the arrival of three new light-talent fairies named Sparkle, Helios, and Glory, but they soon become more trouble than they are worth. Later when she took the mining-talents on their expedition, her light went causing them to be stuck. The triplets worried about her came and saved them and led everyone out of the cave. This story gains tension largely due to Fira's refusal to accept help from others- her workaholic nature ends up exhausting her.

Step Into Reading Books



  • Fira appears in the first book in the series under the name "Moth", with no mention of the name "Fira" at all. In later books, she is called Fira, with a short explanation given that "Moth" is apparently her nickname. Despite this, she is named Fira exclusively from this point on. It is unknown why this change was made -- perhaps because typically only animal-talents are named for animals (though "Moth" is definitely on-theme to a light-talent, given how moths are famously attracted to light).
  • In Silvermist and the Ladybug Curse, Fira and Silvermist are said to be best friends, being "drawn to each other" despite having opposite personalities- Fira's burning passion meshing well with Silvermist's calm serenity. Despite this, they are rarely shown together in other stories.
