Sprites are slow to anger. If you, or any number of other people, are unfortunate enough to actually enrage one of these, otherwise, gentle creatures, you are pretty much dead.
Being top-of-the-chain Elementals, Sprites are capable of channeling any, all, or a combination of the energies that make the universe, including antimatter. A seriously threatened Sprite is capable of giving off an energy pulse strong enough to flatten several city blocks. It was one such Sprite, when cornered by several armed reindeer hunters, who blasted thousands of trees flat, as well as the hunters, in Tunguska in 1908.
