They were a dangerous entities that could easily kill an unarmed man, or even a armed man lacking sufficient luck or skill. They are normally solitary creatures. They were released on Daventry with the coming of the Floating Castle. They were mostly avoiding human settlements, seemingly preferring the deserted byways and lonely margins of the woods. In, time they were likely to grow bolder.
Compare with the vile spirits of the elements brought by Chaos.
