A fairy is usually considered a type of mythical being or legendary creature, sometimes it is called fay, fae, faery, faerie. I have never see a fairy in my life but I can fulfil this imagination in a fictional world, even to have one as pet :) How? In Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn!  It is a MMORPG developed by Square Enix and Naoki Yoshida as producer and director. 

Sometimes I experience on different classes besides Bard (read related blog: "Job Classes in MMORPG - Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn"). Scholar is one of them. Scholar is one of the classes in Disciple of Magic which specialises in healing magic. Scholars and White Mages are the healer classes in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. So what’s the main difference between them? Scholars have fairies as their pets! One as healing-type fairy(Eos) and one as support-type fairy(Selene). If you like to play healer and at the same time to have a pet, then Scholar is your choice :)

In an age long past, when mankind flourished under the radiance of arcane mastery, the island of Vylbrand was home to a city-state called Nym. Though the history of that age tells of countless wars waged with earth-shattering incantations, it was the brilliant strategic maneuvering of Nym's scholars that allowed their mundane army of mariners to throw back would-be conquerers time and again. These learned men and women defended the freedom of their tiny nation with their unique command over spell-weaving faeries, utilizing the creatures' magicks to heal the wounded and bolster the strength of their allies.” —Game Description, source.
