Swooning refers to the state of "defeat" for a Newphy.

As death does not occur in this game, a newphy who has fallen under a fairy's charms will swoon, often collapsing to the ground before disappearing, leaving behind a spray of Score and sometimes items for the fairy to collect.

Adventurer-fairies, when near defeat, tend to retreat or get rescued when they are in grave danger. Playable fairies will always be rescued if they do not retreat, unless they are playing in one of the possible PVP modes.
