Buckawns are somehow related to brownies, but they are nowhere near as kind-hearted and playful. Buckawns are extremely reclusive and rarely have dealings with outside races. Trade of any kind between a buckawn tribe and another race is virtually unheard of.
Characters who journey into a buckawn’s realm are usually left alone, providing they themselves leave the buckawn’s realm alone. Trespassers, evil-doers, and those that disturb the natural beauty of a buckawn domain are dealt with quickly–and permanently if necessary.
A buckawn stands about 2 feet tall and weighs about 30 pounds.
Buckawns favor daggers and darts in combat. They readily use poisoned blades when confronted with a tough opponent, when outnumbered, or when battling opponents for whom they have great disdain.
