“Fairies, come take me out of this dull world. For I would ride with you upon the wind, run on the top of the dishevelled tide, and dance upon the mountains like a flame.” -William Butler Yeats
In Dahomey Mythology, The Aziza are a type of beneficent fairy race, who are the keepers of wisdom. These shy and wise magical creatures reside in the forests of West Africa, and they provide good magic and protection for hunters. They are also known to have passed on practical, survival and spiritual knowledge to humankind (including knowledge of the use of fire).
