Soulmates found one story at a time.

Seeri is a red Mmoatia fairy who lives with Mponyaji, and sometimes helps Bijou hunt monsters.

She is less than a foot tall, has yellow skin, backwards facing feet, and a curved nose. 

There are three kinds of fairies – black (harmless), red and white (who are full of mischief).  They communicate with whistles and pantomime.

They have an encyclopedic knowledge of medicine and healing, and share that knowledge with medicine men – sometimes whether the person wants it or not. The fairies are said to kidnap people and teach them over a period of years.

Bananas are a favorite food, although Seeri prefers cherry bubble gum.
