Peris, in Persian story fairies, descended from the fallen angels.
This maiden, said she, was my favourite of all the Peris that once attended me.
She had dreamt that she swam across the river enticed by the singing of the Peris.
If it were not peris, they would certainly have searched him for his diamonds.
Then I came out of my hiding, took a little of her dung and conveyed it to the peris.
Among the peris of his earthly paradise he was passionate and gallant.
The Peris or Fairies of these stories have nothing distinctive about them.
So the Peris sent a splendid embassy to him, and so did the Divs.
And up an avenue of giant place trees the peris led him, dumb with amazement.
They said they were peris, and that their king had blinded them in his anger and had left them in the well alone.
