Disney Fairies Wiki
Forever's a pretty long time, so I hear.
— Terence[src]

Terence is a dust keeper sparrowman. He has one of the most important jobs in Pixie Hollow: each day, he rises before dawn to help hand out Pixie Dust to the other fairies. Never Fairies need at least one teacup of dust each day in order to fly. Though he loves to have fun, he also is kind and thoughtful, and has great wisdom of the heart. He is very friendly, and has many friends. He sparkles more than most other fairies because he works with fairy dust.[1]

Terence has a large spot for Tinker Bell in his heart- in the books his crush more is open and remarked upon than in the movies. Everyone can see it except her. If Tink says anything mean like "I don't need you to help me", he always comes back to see if she's okay on her own and will always keep talking.[2][3] In the end, Tinker Bell decides "I shouldn't have said that" and goes to him to apologize. But in reality, Terence is the only fairy who has the guts to speak to Tinker Bell when she is annoyed with them.

He and Tinker Bell are best friends in both the movies and the books, and some females like him because of his looks and personality. He is the tertiary tritagonist. He glows more than a normal fairy, and he's always trying to find squished or dented pots so that Tink will have to fix them. It's his way of finding ways to spend time with her.

Throughout the Movies[]

Tinker Bell[]

Terence is first seen at Tinker Bell's arrival as he pours dust on her. He comforts Tink when she is sad about her talent, convincing her that her talent is great. At the end, he gives Tinker Bell extra pixie dust for her trip to the Mainland.

Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure[]

Terence helps Tink with the scepter. When he finds a compass for Tink. But then Tinkerbell refuses to believe Terence that it’s the sharp thing by saying this “Now would you please get this thing out of here?” and bumps the compass with her butt and breaks the scepter, causing Tink to get angry and blamed Terence even it was actually her fault. Then he refused to give her extra Pixie Dust, saying he can't break the rules, not knowing the real reason behind it. He goes to Tink's home before realizing she isn't there. Terence finds her at the Lost Island, north of Never Land. They make up and he helps her fix the scepter. Later, he and Tinker Bell lead the way to the Pixie Dust Tree for the Autumn Revelry. This is his biggest movie appearance by far- in all of the later films, his role is far diminished.

Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue[]

Terence appears briefly at the beginning of the film. He has to leave for two days so he can deliver pixie dust to the other fairy camps on the Mainland. He also appears at the end.

Pixie Hollow Games[]

His partner is Fairy Gary, who forces him to wear a kilt during the games. They made all the way to the third day but lost when they crashed into the water.

Secret of the Wings[]

In this movie his role is short. He makes an appearance in the opening song, and later, is seen near the end, after the Pixie Dust Tree is unfrozen.

The Pirate Fairy[]

He first appeared in the dust depot with Fairy Gary. Later, when the plant grew out of hand during the show at the 4 Seasons Festival, he got into a deep sleep. Then later, he woke up with Fairy Gary, and he again appeared after Zarina switched the girls' talents back.

Throughout the Books[]

Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg (2005)[]

Terence poured fairy dust on Prilla in Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, later he tried to impress Tinker Bell but to no avail. He tested Prilla to see if she was a dust-talent, but she wasn't because she sneezed and dust fairies can't do that. During the hurricane he was worried about Tink but couldn't do anything to help her. At the end, like the others, he made Prilla an honorary Dust-talent.

The Trouble with Tink (2006 book) []

In The Trouble with Tink, Terence went to see Tinker Bell like he usually does. He invited her to play fairy tag, where she dropped her hammer and couldn't find it later. The next day, he went to see Tink again. He starts to get worried when the pot for Violet that Tink had fixed starts to leak. Eventually, she tells Terence about what happened and how she was worried about going to see Peter Pan for her spare hammer. He offers to go with her. There, Peter had pretended to mistake them for butterflies and gave her the spare hammer. At first, Terence didn't like Peter, but then he couldn't help but like him. They then went home and Terence wished Tink good luck, and she was able to fix Queen Clarion's bathtub.

Vidia and the Fairy Crown (2006 book) []

He appears briefly in Vidia and the Fairy Crown, when Queen Clarion's crown went missing.

Beck and the Great Berry Battle (2006 book) []

In Beck and the Great Berry Battle, Terence was having a hard time getting around since the Berry Battle. He was doing a good job dodging berries, but one berry had hit the pixie dust he was delivering. The pixie dust went everywhere causing bugs to fly, but Terence wasn't happy about wasting dust.

Fairy Haven and the Quest of the Wand (2007 book) []

In Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand, he was so worried about Tinker Bell he crossed the sea until he found her. He made a wish that Tink would like him romantically, he felt bad about it later since the relationship was forced- Tink appeared obsessed with him, and acted like a completely different person. Later, when the wand was going out of control he helped hold it down until Tink could fix it. At the end the wish he made was reversed but he accepted it.

Rani in the Mermaid Lagoon (2006 book) []

He was dancing next to Tinker Bell in Rani in the Mermaid Lagoon, at the Fairy Dance he was paying more attention to Tinker Bell than the other fairies around him. He also helped to save Rani from falling at the dance, it took him, Tink, and Fira to hold her up. He appears at the end, congratulating Rani on the fountain she made.

Fairies and the Quest for Never Land (2010 book) []

Later in Fairies and the Quest for Never Land, Terence was very kind to Gwendolyn and went with her and Tink to see Mother Dove. Terence went on the quest with the other fairies including Tinker Bell, for who he would've gone on the quest anyway. He helped put the Kyto Keeper on Kyto while Gwendolyn and Vidia distracted him. He and Tink tried to save her kiss necklace but couldn't. Also, he gave her a bag of fairy dust so she could return anytime she wanted. In the end, Tink is noticed allowing him to hover closer than she had before- the reader is left to interpret that however they wish.

Silvermist and the Ladybyg Curse (2008 book) []

He appears briefly in Silvermist and the Ladybug Curse, at the fairy picnic, playing games with the other fairies and sparrowmen.


Terence is kind-hearted and helpful, and possesses a simplistic wisdom. He takes his job as a dust collector very seriously but cares deeply about his friends. He has a big crush on Tinkerbell. In the second movie he ends up accidentally annoying Tinkerbell and getting in her way by being too excited to work with her, but recognizes this at the end and works on giving her lord space (until she asks him for help). In the Tinker Bell DS game, he is known for writing poetry.

Physical Appearance[]

Terence is a slender, blond-haired sparrowman. He appears slightly more unkempt and disheveled in the books, having messy hair and a long jacket with jagged edges.


Tinker Bell[]

It is heavily implied in the chapter books that Terence has romantic feelings towards Tinker Bell, though less obvious than in the novels (which outright state this as fact). He constantly finds excuses to be near her and enjoys every aspect of her appearance, no matter what she looks like each day. That Tink finds herself reciprocating some aspect of Terence's enjoyment causes her to worry ("she has had her heart broken once before") and try to push him away. Observing him playing with her friends individually causes her great jealousy, however.

In the movies, the relationship is more ambiguous and seems more based around close friendship. In Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure (film), Terence is playfully mocked by his fellow dust-keepers about going to hangout with Tinker Bell, implying their relationship could be more than friendship, but this is laughed off and dismissed by an embarrassed Terence. When Tinker Bell is asked directly as to whether or not their relationship is romantic, the camera cuts away before she can answer. An example of this is in Secret of the Wings, when Tinkerbell is explaining the events of The Lost Treasure to her new found sister, Periwinkle and Tink simply replies "um..." and the camera cuts away before we get a proper answer, hinting that maybe Tink DOES feel something more then friendship for Terence in an obvious gag on their ambiguous relationship.
