An astrid, one of the guards assigned to protect the Fairy King

The Fairy King is the King of fairies, husband of the Fairy Queen and father of Bracken and four daughters. He commanded the male fairies during his time of reign. During that time, the Fairy Queen assigned Astrids to guard the Fairy King. However, the Demon King Gorgrog attacked the fairies and 'killed' the Fairy King. This tragedy could have been prevented if the Astrids had not lowered their guard out of arrogance. Because of his death, the male fairies disappeared and the imps were born. He was mentioned many times in thefourth and fifth books and in the fifth book, it is revealed that he was chained to Gorgrog as a trophy, dragged along in Zzyzx by the Demon King for centuries. After the Demon King is slain by Kendra Sorenson, the Fairy King returned to his people and began to recuperate. In the first book of the Dragonwatch series, the Fairy King protects Seth from dragons chasing him by temporarily allowing him to enter the fairy realm and then sending him to Fablehaven, when he asks for his help at the fairy queen's shrine at Wyrmroost. He also states that he is eternally gratefully and owes Kendra and Seth many favors for killing the Demon King and freeing him.
