Others (fully illustrated):


When Prilla's human (Sara Quirtle) laughed for the first time, some of Sara left her and stuck to the laugh, making Sara incomplete and inflicting in Prilla. Because of this, on contrary to Never Fairies' arrival, Prilla knew not what her talent was, only later discovering her abilities:[1]

  • the Gift: she has the ability to talk in human and fairy languages
  • human-like mannerisms: some include the use of human titles and address to others as "Miss" or apologizes by saying "I'm sorry" which allows her to communicate better with human children instead of using the Never Fairies addressing manners, e.g. "I'd fly backward if I could."
  • mainland-visiting-clapping talent: she "blinks" to the Mainland whenever a fairy is in danger of dying to encourage children who still believe in fairies to clap their hands and prevent the demise.


In the Home Tree's Directory the location states "Room 7P, NNW Branch." "Because her talent was a mystery at first, the decoration-talent fairies did not know what to do. So she received standard-issue fairy furniture [...]" The floor is covered with grass carpet and colorful flowers, the dressing table and chairs are decorated with pears, the bed is made from daisies and the wooden mirror have flowers motifs. Beside her bed stays her favorite teapot, and her foux-mouse slippers.[2][3]

Prilla's Arrival

Fira and Terence and Prilla, in her arrival

In Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, when Prilla arrives, many of the fairies thought she was incomplete because she didn't know her talent. Tinker Bell helped show her around Pixie Hollow, while Prilla looked for a talent where ever they went. She slept through most of the hurricane, but landed on the beach later close to Mother Dove. Queen Clarion and Mother Dove selected her, Rani, and Vidia to go on the quest for the egg. She distracted Captain Hook while the others took his cigar holder, helped with the golden hawk, and had to cut off Rani's wings so they could get a mermaid comb. Her and the others then took the objects to Kyto to save the egg. When, Kyto had contaminated the egg she got clumsy children to clap to save it, discovering her talent.

In Fairies and the Quest for Never Land she helped find the tiffen boys that had set Kyto free. Close to the end she went with the other fairies to capture Kyto, so she could get children to clap for them if they needed her too. At the end she went to visit Gwendolyn and brought her gifts from the other fairies.

In Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand, during the flooding of Fairy Haven, Prilla flashed back and forth to the Mainland trying to stop the flood by getting clumsy children to clap. She also wished for Sara Quirtle to be complete, it was the only wish that wasn't reversed. Later, she helped Tinker Bell and Beck find Rani-bat in a cave.
