While flying in the woods, Fawn finds a big unusual creature lying in a cave, which apparently suffers from a thorn in one of his paws. Fawn tries to help the beast, during which, she discovers that it is not vicious and is moving some rocks for building purposes. Fawn stays to observe the beast, which she names Gruff, and helps it build some structures around Pixie Hollow, but has no idea why it was doing so. Meanwhile, an ambitious scout fairy named Nyx investigates the situation, researching in the library to find out what she's up against. Using some information gathered from several torn pages of an undisclosed animal book, she discovers that Gruff is a creature that awakens about once every millennium when he will transform into a terrifying beast that could destroy Pixie Hollow with a mysterious series of events that culminate in a deadly storm.
One day Gruff disappears and indeed transforms into the monster depicted in the fairy lore, growing wings and horns. Fawn and Tinker Bell search for him. Tinker Bell finds him first but he accidentally knocks Tinker Bell away, knocking her unconscious. Fawn finds Tinker Bell and lures Gruff to be captured. Tinker Bell wakes up and explains that Gruff saved her from getting crushed by a falling tree. Fawn realizes she misunderstood the whole thing. She and her friends free Gruf. He redirects and takes in lightning from the crumbling towers. With no time to rebuild them, Fawn leads Gruff into the eye of the storm where he absorbs every single lightning strike, ending the storm. Despite the success of the new plan, Fawn is seemingly killed. As Gruff mourns her, the lightning he absorbed makes a spark which revives the fairy. For the next few days, Gruff helps rebuild Pixie Hollow until the time when he must hibernate arrives. The fairies sadly guide him back to his cave in a sendoff ceremony and try to make his slumber as comfortable as possible, while Fawn passes on a new legend to future generations of fairies.
