Creature: Fireflyers (CR 1-13)

Fireflyers are like will-o-the-wisps, except they take the form of glowing parchments that float in the night sky. The parchments represent the spells they cast when in danger, but do not disappear when the spell is cast. The most common cast burning hands, the uncommon ones fireball or flame strike, but the rare fireflyers cause earthquakes. There are tales of a wish fireflyer, but (oddly) nobody can corroborate this rumor. There are also tales of wizards trapping read magic or light fireflyers in their towers in order to take advantage of their spell-like abilities.

The effects are as scrolls of the spells cast at the lowest caster level possible.
