Corky Smallwood was a human man who was transformed into a pixie when Whistler's plague ball exploded. When he was a human he was a petty criminal, but after he was transformed his crimes increased. Corky headed a group of pixies; together they considered themselves the ones who ran Magic Town.
Corky and his pixies challenged the Glass Blower to make them perfect glass jars, which Corky then had residents of Magic Town fill up for his customers. One of these residents was Andy, whom Corky and his group attacked to "remind him of his place". They were fended off by Angel, who intervened. When Andy came to bring a new glass jar, Corky and his group killed him to send Angel the message that he should mind his own business.
Angel started to investigate Corky, spurned on by clues from Nadira. Corky had recruited Tommy to attack Angel when he came into the sewers but Angel beat the demon, causing Corky to flee. He tries to mutate teenage bullies with magic bottles. It is revealed to be a trap for Angel, Corky acquired Pearl as his new muscle. With the help of the mutated Slayer Nadira, Angel imprisons the pixie in a magic bottle. Quickly after his defeat, his minions find a new boss, Amy Madison.
