Sprites are diminutive fey folk approximately 1/3 the size of humans. Flighty, playful and mischievous by nature, they dislike dour individuals like dwarves and outright despise evil creatures like goblins. Sprites prefer to dwell in thriving wooded areas close to fresh water and are most active during the day.
Though magical creatures, Sprites do not have strong ties to the Fey Realm. Their innate magical nature does allow them to judge other beings at a glance. If they detect any evil or hostile intent they will do their utmost to harass and prank the subject, sometimes with lethal results. Sprites can also fly, detect invisible objects, breathe underwater and communicate with insects.
Sprites will tolerate other fey folk but distrust humans. If molested or pestered, Sprites will retaliate by tying knots in boot laces, cutting pack straps, stealing small items, and other trickery.
