I don't think they are entirely fairies in that they are the "next step of man" toward the hierogrammate evolution, so putting a primitive amorality on them is not consistent with their "outside and beyond" reality presence in the case of short sun, where the vanished gods watch the eucharist scene and where the Outsider's will is being done.  Just my 2 cents, though I do think the destruction of man is implicit in Horn's deal with Neighbor Horn.

That ought to count as amorality right there, although no one said it 
was "primitive." Even if they ARE being moral, why should we understand 
their morality? They are aliens after all.
