And later Stan becomes an invaluable helper to Jenny though to begin with she loathes him as he and Wes are the literally living proof to her mother’s story she is a fairy godmother. Stan is humorous, does have some sense of right and wrong, and can see bull from mile away. Stan is like a well meaning but over exuberant dog. He just needs to calm down!
Whespy, later Wes, is Stan’s chief rival. But unlike Stan Wes develops a huge amount of courage, falls in love with a high and noble elf, Isabel, and returns to the Kingdom, gaining promotion as the Queen’s aide. That did not go down well with the Council. Wes is known to be common but Wes proves to be invaluable to the Queen and later L’Evallier develops a grudging respect for the brave sprite.
Wes is the one who smuggles the Queen’s oracle out of the Palace when the Witch overthrows the monarch and, despite the odds, manages to get the oracle back to its proper owner. The oracle gives the Queen access to a massive amount of spells and the Witch is besides herself with anger when she realises the stupid sprite, whom she allowed to escape believing he’d be killed by her followers when on the run, took with him the one thing she needed to make her coup a success. Wes faces death, adventure and Isabel. The only one he welcomes, eventually, is Isabel! Wes discovers a sense of honour even he didn’t know he had.
And Stan's not entirely sure what to make of Wes becoming responsible, brave and falling in love. Sure Stan could take the mickey out of the latter (though aware Wes could still knock his lights out for doing so) but there's no way he'd get away with doing so for the former qualities. Wes's courage has been relayed around the Fairy Kingdom and Stan doesn't fancy having to answer to the (restored) Queen and her (equally restored) Council for his criticisms.
