Quicklings hated humanoids of all kinds and wished nothing more than to kill them all.[4] They were also known to be quite hyperactive. This caused them to typically have a short lifespan, rarely living past the age of fifteen.[5]


Quicklings were exceptionally adept at the art of ventriloquism, which they used to fool creatures into traps or other dangerous situations.[4]


a species of quickling that was endemic to frozen reaches of the Feywild, where they acted as servants and spies for members the Winter Court, such as Koliada. Their bodies were covered in ice and had a pair of wings.[6]


Quicklings sought out dark and evil places and lived in a clan structure with their extended families. They favored poisoned or corrupted natural dwellings such as twisted groves of trees; poisoned, cursed or diseased springs; or lands once ruled over by chaotic beings that had become overgrown. They avoided outside contact unless it helped them to promote their own evil desires. such as contacting evil outsiders or wizards to offer their services as trackers and assassins.[citation needed]


Quicklings were typically known to be servants of the Queen of Air and Darkness.[7] But in the Feydark they were also known to serve as elite spies, assassins, and saboteurs for fomorian rulers. Often sent to infiltrate or perform reconnaissance on other societies in the Feywild.[8]
