Indigenous to Cornwall, a Spriggan is a goblin like creature with a fondness for treasure, which often leads them to setting up base in ruins and castles where they guard wealth and artifacts.
The Spriggan is one member of Fae legend who will not be winning and beauty pageants anytime soon. Spriggans are paticularly ugly in appearence often described as short little men with large feet, crooked features and bodies. Their custom dress is decorated with pieces of stone.
Spriggan's are notorious child snatchers, and with their protective nature, parents have little chance for recovering their child. Spriggan's are also often thought to be responsible for bad weather, whirlwinds, and illness.Like Pixies and Will o' wisps Spriggan's enjoy leading travellers astray, however unlike pixies and will o' wisps, spriggan's do so with the intention of leading people into danger.
Some believe Spriggans to be decedents or even ghosts of giants, which has blessed them with the ability to expand to giant sized proportions when they feel threatened or intend to cause bodily harm.
