"So you want to...play a game?" Sylvia said, looking up to the kobold."Ya know, I am stronger than I look." She claimed. Her face looked like a doll with a long nose. She adjusted her hat to align it with her face. The kobold made threatening gestures as it said shouted its war cry.

Well, if it's a fight you want...it's a fight you'll get!

Physical Description[edit]

Korrigan are small creatures with long noses and natural outfits, usually made of things like leaves, cotton, and animal furs. They have pale skin, usually with freckles spread all over their face. They look similar to gnomes, but shorter. Their eyes can be any color excluding brown and grey and look glossy, kind of like a doll. Their hair is composed of cool colors, like brown, grey, black, blue, purple, green, or dark red. Their feet are somewhat long, and usually look somewhat thin. They therefore have long, pointed shoes.


The korrigan are a type of fey. They claim to once have had wings, being like the pixies and fairies.. It is believed that in the battles of the Seelie Court that these brave, small fey sacrificed their statuses as fairies by giving up their wings. As a result, they were grounded, but their sacrifice was not unnoticed by Titania or Oberon, who decreed them honorary elites in the court for their loyalty. Today, they rely on small animals as modes of transportation and conduct espionage against possible enemies of the court.


Korrigan tend to live in ways similar to when they had wings. That means they still are found in woodlands where the power of fey and natural forests still are prominent. Like a fairy tale creature, they make their home in harmony with nature, in trees, using vines, mushrooms, and all of nature's bounty as their home and more. Many korrigan are skilled riders of creatures like mice, squirrels and even birds. While their size limits their mobility, they more than make up for this in their courage and wit. Korrigan are few to back down from a fight, and they are proud fey. Some are able to manifest the powers of their forgotten wings to take temporary flight, but it is not the most reliable of movement.

Korrigan Names[edit]

Korrigan have a wide variety of names. They use the Sylvan language and have accents that are very whimsical, with changing sounds noting their every mood. Their names also usually relate to the nature. They cannot change their names whatsoever and must keep the names they have.

Male: Oliver, Green, Terra, Oak, Pine, Bark, Robin, Nile, Dune, Beech, Shrub, Reef, Conifer, Rocky

Female: Skai, Flora, Sylvia, Celeste, Ruby, Luna, Aqua, Coral, Sandy, Lily, Faris
