|Spriggan in a tree stub where|
they guard their Treasure
They are, also know for sending strong storms to blight crops of the humans. There was a story and it was said it was of an old woman who got the better of an band of these Spriggans by turning her clothing inside-out to gain their treasure. How did she do it?Well, it seems that by turning your clothes inside-out is just as effective as iron your clothes with Holy Water. It seems to repel the faeries very well! As far as their appearance they are described as short little men with very large feet, skinny body's, wise-looking features and a crooked body. They are often dressed, with pieces of stones. Since the Faery Spriggan don't have much of a chance in life, the adults are notorious child snatchers and if the have the chance, they will find a human parent-child to replaced with an unhealthy changeling baby.

This seems to happen quite often in folklore in Cornish Ireland. So they would watch the newborns very carefully. These Creature Faery's will also cause illness, bad weather and intentionally lead humans into danger too. Now for a bit of history on the Spriggan's. The name was given to the family of faeries in Cornish Folklore and they are vey closely related to the Piskies. However, they are generally a bit darker and a lot more dangerous than their mischievous cousins - Piskies & Faeries. The differences are generally, whereas the Faeries & Piskies are described as being cheerful and fun loving. Spriggans are more spiteful, dark, very dangerous & full of malice. Also, they have a deep hatred toward humans. One fact, that I did find out as a common trait & their hatred, toward humans was how they
would lead lonely human traveler into either swamps or near dangerous
crumbling cliffs where they would lead them to their doom.
The other was to frighten humans by expanding their small body's
Into Giants proportions -
so that the mortal thought they were Giants.
I HOPE THAT YOU ENJOY THE POST
