Flittle did not really die for we see her turn Aurora dress into blue only she was actually a plant when she does turn Aurora's dress blue.

Knotgrass, Flittle and Thistlewit are pixies that inhabit the Moors. The trio went to Princess Aurora's christening to grant her magical gifts, where Maleficent curses the newborn baby. After this event, the pixies were responsible for taking care of Aurora until her 16th birthday.

Physical Appearance Edit

Knotgrass is the oldest, plump, has brown hair, and is wearing a red dress and hat. She is quite stern and strict but does have a sweet side.

Flittle was the pixie that had short brown hair, in curls with blue ends and was wearing a blue dress.

Thistlewit is the youngest out of the three. She has blonde hair, and a green dress and hat with yellow and white tips. She is a very cheerful fairy and sometimes speaks without thinking {as when the fairies were preparing for Phillip's proposal for Aurora and she almost ruined the surprise}.

Origin Edit

The Pixies' origin isn't revealed, but It's possible that they originated from the Moors.

Powers and Abilities Edit

  • Magic: The Pixies possesses several magical powers:
    • Magical Gifts Granting: In order to spread peace, the Pixies went to the baby Aurora's christening and granted her magical gifts. Knotgrass wished for the baby the gift of beauty, Flittle wished that every day of her life would be filled with happiness, but when Thistlewhit was about to grant Aurora's gift, Maleficent came and interrupted her. Thistlewit's gift was that she would find true love but she didn't have enough time to grant it.
    • Human Form Transformation: When King Stefan entrusted Aurora's safety to the Pixies, they saw that they needed a proper disguise, so the three fairies used their magical powers and turned themselves into humans.
    • Atmokinesis: It's presumed that the Pixies have this ability because when Maleficent used her magical powers to cause a downpour in the the three Pixies' house, Knotgrass, while raining in their house, told Flittle and Thistlewit to stop causing the downpour, unaware that Maleficent was doing it.

In order to protect Aurora from the curse, Stefan gives the baby to the care of the three pixies. Thereafter, Knotgrass, Flittle, Thistlewit and baby Aurora move into a small cottage. Seeing that they cannot be in fairy form to take care of Aurora, they decide to transform into human form. But it turns out that they are incapable of looking after the baby so while they struggle living like humans, Maleficent and Diaval secretly take care of the princess from a distance. At this time Diaval pranks the three Pixies to kill his boredom

Role In Maleficent: Mistress Of EvilEdit

The Three Fairies cheer with excitement as Prince Phillip proposes to Aurora. Later, they and all the residents of the Moors are invited to the wedding. They get trapped in the chapel and are attacked with red metal dust released by Gerda that strips the creatures of their magic and sentience. Flittle sacrifices herself by going inside the organ and stopping the flow of dust, and Knotgrass and Thistlewit avenge her by making Gerda fall to her presumed death when she tries to get the organ working again.

At the wedding, Knotgrass and Thistlewit argue over the color of Aurora's wedding dress and keep changing it between pink and green. When the dress turns blue, they turn to a regenerating Flittle telling her how they like the color.

Notes Edit

  • The Pixies's names are different from the 1959 Sleeping Beauty film. Flora is Knotgrass, Merryweather is Flittle and Fauna is Thistlewit.
  • Earlier concepts also had the names of the fairies as Fernadell, Merryweather, and Tranquility, each connected to certain aspects. Fernadell represented the forest, Merryweather the elements and weather, and Tranquility dreams.
