There are other traditions such as that found in English, German and Slavic folklores.
In the Arthurian legends, the divine or fairy figures also appeared in abundance.
Morgan, Arthur's half-sister, seemed to be great sorceress and healer, was often called Morgan le Fay; her nickname Fay, which means "Fairy". Arthur's wife, Guinevere, or Gwenhwyfar in the Welsh tradition, also appeared to be a fairy, as well as the sovereignty goddess.

One undercover investigator posing as a patient told Summers he needed the drugs simply because they made him “feel good.” Before issuing a prescription, Summers wrote on that man’s chart: “Patient is in denial with life’s struggles, placing the blame on everyone else other than where the blame needs to be.
Afterward, Summers or other doctors who worked at the clinic would herd them into conference rooms for cursory examinations that often lasted less than two minutes.
At the end, every patient received a pre-printed prescription for Suboxone and Klonopin in dosages dependent on how much they were willing to pay -- for a week’s supply, 0 for a month’s.
