Battle imps love fighting, absolutely love it. Most other fey do not understand the glee that battle imps get from hurling rocks at orcs and hobgoblins except when their territory is invaded by these savage humanoids they appreciate the assistance. If there is anything that battle imps love more than combat is telling stories. They talk all the time,even providing helpful advice (or misinformation) to their attackers. Did you know that elves have solid eye colors because they stared into the face of the gods for too long, or that dwarves will begin to sweat gold if shaken hard enough, or that kobolds are a degenerate race of purple and lavender dragons that breathed cones of purple flame that smelled like dirty laundry? Well, now you do. At least that is what the battle imps say to anyone willing (or not willing) to listen.

Although powerful in their own right, battle imps most enjoy playing sidekick to another intelligent woodland native. Rangers and druids are the most common targets of the imp’s attachment. Battle imps like to employ unusual battle tactics but are never far from their companions, often causing a wall of thorns to erupt between an ally and a foe if the former becomes injured.
