Leprechauns: A type of Irish fairy sacred to Earth, sometimes known as the ‘wee folk’. These aren’t the cute sort- they’re capable of great evil just as we are, and tend to be tricksters, lustful, and mean. Leprechauns are said to drink heavily and are shoemakers. If you can find a leprechaun and catch him, you can take his gold… unless you get tricked out of letting him go.

They aren’t intelligent, but it’s clear one doesn’t need to be intelligent to cause harm. They have tough skin and regeneration powers, and will eat anything including metal and bone. The only way to stop

them is to burn them, and their eating habits lead them to a disgusting sort of attack: vomiting on their target.
