They are grouped in generic families based on big differences
among them, and the elements they inhabit or preferrably
domain. They could be classified as follows:
Air Spirits: Silfides
The air element, featured by intelligence, represented
by Spring and Dawn is inhabited by Sylphs in the form
of butterflies. They control winds, help birds in their
migrations and flowers in their pollination. Their light
yellow- toned translucent appearance is present in the
scent of wet herb threatening to rain. Sylphs
Nymphs, Mermaids, Nereids, Naiads, Undines,and Water
The water element featured by love and cures, represented
by Autumn and Sunset, is inhabited by nymphs, mermaids,
nereids, and undines. They appear as mythological creatures
in all liquids, such as seas, rivers, fresh water brooks,
falls, and clouds. Their aspect vary depending on their
habitat. Nereids rule the seas; undines called Naiads
by the Greek, are found in lakes. They are mostly blue
and a receptive energy. Like mermaids, they attract any
sailor with their songs until they wreck. They are the
ones channeling natural river beds.
The Earth element is the most dense. It is represented
by Winter and the night. It is inhabited by Ladies, goblins,
gnomes, and trolls. They are mostly green, and have a
receptive energy. Fairies or ladies are characterized
by their kindness and for being the oldest inhabitants
of the plant. They may either be imposing or tiny; their
powers, however, are incredible and dominate nature.
Fire Spirits: Salamanders
The Fire element features both creation and destruction.
It is represented by Summer, and daylight. It is inhabited
by Salamanders, Farralis and Ra-Arus, appearing as reddish
salamanders and dragons. They give the idea that with
courage and imagination everything can be done. They
send forth projective energy, and dominate the element.
No fire would be ignited without their intervention.
GOBLINS, ELFS, AND GNOMES
Trying to explain or talking about beings not considered
spirits, angels, or human beings is rather difficult.
They, however, share something in common, and more. We
could give them the generic name of elemental creatures,
nature spirits. They all inhabit the Magic
World of Fairies.
Is is true that we can communicate with those tiny beings?
In spite of the fact that nature has been devastated
by man, and that they were compelled to hide in the jungle
or in the woods, many of them live with human beings
and are willing to serve them. To communicate with them,
we should love everything that surrounds us. They may
appear under certain circumstances and on special occasions
without us ever realizing of that, for they have the
ability to choose the form they shall appear under -
which may be similar to the very nature either as a stone,
a tree, an animal, a plant or even a human being. These
beings talk, laugh, are cautious, poor, rich, wise and
crazy, just like all of us. They are the rough image
of man, virtuous or vicious, pure or impure, better or
TYPES OF GOBLINS
They live inside houses or in the surroundings. For
centuries they inhabited wild, woody, and mountainous
areas, living inside caves or caverns until one of them
approached the places where human beings lived, firstly
for the sake of curiosity, then with the single objective
of having fun. They appear preferably at night. They
are about 50 cm- high and resemble man. They go out at
night and love to have fun by dint of those sleeping.
Even though most of them like to bother or frighten human
beings, some of them, however, love to help men in domestic
households. According to some experts, their names come
from the Arabig word duar, meaning the one who inhabites
or the inhabitant.
These are some little devil looking- goblins, not linked
to a house, but to a person to whom they assist and make
him their owner. They are linked to witchcraft.
They belong to a strange family of aggresive and individualist
goblins. They cause nightmares and choose women and children
as their victims.
GENERAL FEATURES OF ELFS
All these beings are very ancient, small and ugly.
When they are standing, they have arms so long that they
past beyond their ankles. They have abundant and entangled
hair, and a special talent for evil, though there are
also benevolent Elfs. They love larch roots, do not like
rain, but are fond of tempests. They have pointing ears
and legs like wire.
TYPES OF ELFS
Elfs are huge magical beings divided into two
The Ljsalfar, or Light Elfs;
The Dopkalfar, or Darkness Elfs.
They dominate the change in appearance, have an etereous
beauty, are one of the best disposition elfs. They are
translucent and blue coloured.
There are other light elfs with the ability to move over
fire or inside wood and stone. They are called Ellefolk;
can foretell the future, sing and compose a fascinating
and enraptured music.
Like lobsters, they build their homes beneath the earth.
They are frequently found in houses where they prefer
dark corners, only visible at night. They may be of grey,
brown, red or black colours. If a house has locks with
no keys or small cracks in the wood, Elfs shall come
in through those tiny spaces. They have many names, such
as Cauchemar, Qaalruter, Nachtmannle.
They are the most numerous. They may be found in trees,
plants, brooks or ponds. They are quite cautious and
protected from the interference of strangers.
Since these elementary beings are earth spirits, they
preferably work the soil and tree roots, to which they
grant power. They look like funny little old men, as
they belong to a race coming from the beginning of times.
It is said that they inhabited the lost Atlantis. These
tiny creatures build their homes under aging trees. They
only go out at night and their home is lively after sunset.
They are friends of animals, they speak their same language
and protect them from danger. The best feasts are when
the freezing winds blow over the woods dancing and playing,
they start to run and some prefer rain for their dances.
