Pixies will be flying humanoids the size of Vexes or smaller. Despite their size, they will have the respect of many mobs and a tendency to boss them around. They will be a little snobby, but most mobs will forgive them because they look adorable. Some mobs might even follow them around. Unlike other humanoid races, Pixies will not give the players items in trade or attack them directly. Instead, they will use status effects.
Pixie's Wrath and Pixie's Thanks (status effects) will be their main way of rewarding players for behavior they term good or bad. If those ideas are not liked, other status effects can be used. Examples of behavior Pixies may react to includes hitting or killing a mob, breaking a block, or giving a Pixie an item. If the Pixie likes what you did, you will be rewarded. If it does not, you will be punished, likely at the hands of another mob.
As Pixies are less than one block tall, they will live in tiny houses. They will enter and exit these houses through trap doors. I will not specify what these homes should look like, but Hobbit-hole style or twisting towers with roof entrances would both be interesting.
Pixies would be a unique addition to Minecraft. Their tendency to boss mobs around, their partially indirect interaction with the player, and their quirky personalities would all add to the game. They also add player interaction with a unique culture, which would reward the respectful and punish the disrespectful.
