Ruby the Red Fairy is the first fairy in the Rainbow Fairies series.
Ruby the Red Fairy brings the colour red into all parts of Fairyland. She's the one who makes sure fruits and vegetables grow juicy and ripe. Beautiful red flowers appear on the ground wherever she waves her magical scarlet wand.
Fairy Profile from the Official RM Facebook Page:
Red is the color of passion, courage, and energy. It follows that Ruby is feisty and exuberant, and she shares Rachel's speed demon tendency (it's no coincidence red is a favored color for sports cars).

Fairyland is home to seven colourful sisters. Together, they are the Rainbow Fairies! They keep Fairyland dazzling and bright. But when evil Jack Frost sends them far away, the sisters are in big trouble. If they don't return soon, Fairyland is doomed to be grey forever!
In the pot at the end of the rainbow, Rachel and Kirsty come across Ruby the Red Fairy. Can they keep her safe and find the rest of her Rainbow sisters... before it's too late?
Ruby tends to overdo things. It is also possible that she is the oldest out of the Rainbow Fairies, as she tends to care for the other fairies, and is willing to protect them no matter what.
Ruby has slightly-tanned, flushed skin. Her hair is long and strawberry-blonde in colour, braided into two standard braids, and threaded with red roses and green leaves. Ruby wears a silky, off-the-shoulder, red dress. On her feet are delicate, red ballet shoes, with red ribbons lacing up her legs. She also wears red, crystal rose earrings and a red rose necklace around her neck. Ruby's wings are round in shape and are tinted golden, with red edging.
Powers and Abilities
- the standard powers of a fairy (ie. magic)
- power over the colour red
Ruby's magical object is her wand. According to the official Rainbow Magic website, Ruby's wand is scarlet-red. (The book cover, however, features Ruby's wand to be black.) Her special fairy dust symbol is a red, five-petaled flower.
As Ruby has no special object like many other fairies do, she relies solely on her wand to create the colour red. Her wand is the source of her power and without it, the colour red would disappear from Fairyland entirely. (It is never made clear whether the human world would be affected, though.) It also appears that Ruby must be present in Fairyland for her magic to work, as red (among other colours) disappeared from Fairyland, even though she still had her wand with her when she was banished by Jack Frost.
