Also known as woodlaughers, the lemkin is a rare woodland fey who its their time playing tricks on those that harm the local flora and fauna. Instead of attacking these creatures outright, it prefers to send an endless stream of notes to its targets carried by every kind of animal from mice to great brown bears. The notes will contain anything from poetry to silly insults to misleading directions. Once the lemkin’s target is thoroughly confused, it begins using ghost sound and ventriloquism to get them running in a random direction. Finally, it uses hallucinary terrain to make sure its target is completely lost. The lemkin are not cruel in its pranks. Its interest lasts as long as its target is entertaining. When it ceases to be entertaining, the lemkin moves on to find other transgressors.
The lemkin stands about three feet tall and weigh 50 pounds.
