A debatable phenomenon. Some believe these strange lights are the glow of faeries, others say they are the lamps or torches carried by the fae. Although not a creature they do have their place in mythology. Humans who follow them can be lead to a faery gathering or even the faery realm if they manage to do so without getting lost; as the strange lights have a tendency to flicker and fade in and out of sight.
These lights have many different names as they part of cultures throughout europe from the UK to western Russia. They have been called:Faery lights, St. Elmo's Fire, Jack-o-Lantern, Bob-A-Longs, Jenny Burnt-Tail, Teine Sith, Huckpoten, Irrbloss, Eclaireux, Candelas and Ruskaly.
