Faerie Form. The knight can magically change its size between Medium and Tiny as an action. While tiny, the bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage dealt by the knight’s attacks is halved. Additionally, it has disadvantage on Strength checks and advantage on Dexterity checks. Its statistics are otherwise unchanged.
Faerie Light. As a bonus action, the knight can cast dim light for 30 feet, or extinguish its glow.
Multiattack. The knight makes two melee attacks.
Glittering Scimitar. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6 + 4) slashing damage plus 7 (2d6) cold, fire, or lightning damage (its choice).
Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d8 + 4) piercing damage plus 14 (4d6) poison damage. If the poison damage reduces the target to 0 hit points, the target is stable but poisoned for 1 hour, even if it regains hit points, and it is asleep while poisoned in this way.
Fey Glamour. The knight targets one humanoid within 30 feet. The target makes a DC 13 Wisdom saving throw . On a failure, it is magically charmed by the knight for 1 day. If the knight or one of the knight’s allies harms the target, the target repeats the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success. If a target's saving throw is successful, or if the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to this knight's Fey Charm for a year and a day.
Nature’s Shield. When the knight would be hit by an attack while the knight is within 5 feet of a tree or other large plant, the knight’s AC magically increases by 3 against that attack as the plant interposes branches or vines between the knight and the attacker.
If possible, the knight fights within the shielding reach of trees, and it ambushes opponents when it can. If its opponents can’t fly, it flies at its maximum elevation of 10 feet, just out of reach of Medium creatures without ranged or reach weapons. It prefers ranged combat but does not retreat if engaged in melee.

6 Answer its riddle
7 Weave a circle round it thrice
8 Taunt it until it swells up to three times its size

Legends and Lore
With an Arcana or History check, characters can learn the following:
DC 10 Faeries are magical, flying creatures.
DC 15 Some faeries belong to a seelie court, which means they are often friendly to outsiders who meet their standards of behavior. Faeries that belong to an unseelie court are unpredictable and dangerous. There is no obvious way to tell a faerie’s allegiance.
DC 20 Faeries abide by strange, arbitrary rules. If you learn a faerie’s rules, you may gain power over it.
Fey knights are the dragonfly- or butterfly-winged warriors of faerie courts. They do the bidding of mighty faerie nobles and archfey. Apart from observing its behavior, there is no obvious way to distinguish whether a fey knight belongs to a seelie or unseelie court. Fey knights typically wear ornamented mithral scale armor worth 250 gp or more.
1 Wishes to escort you to a royal faerie court, where you will be feasted and entertained. If the knight is seelie, you will be allowed to leave the court as well
2 Wishes to joust or shoot against a champion; the loser must pay a bag of gold or reveal its true name
3 Eloping with a mortal noble; being pursued by the noble's family
4 In its lair or court; demands a gift from uninvited guests

6 Hostile; attacks on sight
