While writing Wrath of the Tooth Fairy, I borrowed mythology and creatures from fairy tales. There are fairies, tooth fairies, and fairy godmothers. In the corporate occupations of the Fairy Realm, there are muses, angels, cupids, insomnia fairies, grim reapers, frog princes, Santas, demons and others. Some of these fairies are influenced by Greek mythology while some are my own takes on the career paths fairies and other immortals would need to fill.
