This is one of the many worlds of FFXI. It was activated to alleviate overcrowding on the other servers and possibly to prepare all servers to be able to receive the influx of new players with the release of FFXI on Windows in North America. Its original population consisted of players world shifted from all existing servers (Bahamut through Midgardsormr).
On March 22, 2010, this server was merged with the Sylph server and deactivated.

History in the FF Series
Final Fantasy Tactics Fairy [PS1], Faerie [PSP]
Fairy is a Summon who has never appeared in the mainstream Final Fantasy series, appearing only in Final Fantasy Tactics. She is a woman with long black hair who is almost entirely enshrouded by her giant feathered wings. She is the most powerful healing Summon in that game, able to restore HP. A curing Summon is uncommon, though not unheard of, in the mainstream Final Fantasy series (see Seraph, Lakshmi).
"Fey Light"- restores massive HP for all allies in range (FFT)
Final Fantasy XI In FFXI, Faeries appear as campaign battle NPCs, led by Titania. Like the Faerie summon in FFT, they restore the HP of players.
In British Isles and French folklore, fairies were ethereal human-like spirits with mystical powers. Fairies often had what was considered an otherworldly beauty and were described has having slender, graceful forms with fairy wings (similar to insect or butterfly wings) and a glow around them, as well as being usually adorned with flowers (especially female fairies). Their behavior was considered whimsical, ephemeral, and detached. They were almost exclusively found out in nature, primarily associated with forests, woodlands, and other secluded locations. They were considered benevolent, but could also be dangerous to mortals, due to their fickle, unpredictable, seemingly care-free/careless behavior. Other words and spellings used for fairy were faerie and fae. These words derive from French (Old French fée), which got it from Persia (fée meant in French "enchantment"). In Persian mythology, the Pari (Peri) were beautiful winged creatures which flew around the mortal realm, denied access to Paradise until they do penance. They were considered relatively benevolent. Fairies were most famously depicted in the play A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare. Medieval English folklore had a Fairy Queen who was unnamed (Shakespeare gave her the name Titania). Queen Mab was also a fairy in the same folklore.
