A leprechaun is a type of the "faerie folk" that inhabited Ireland before the arrival of the Celts.

They usually take the form of old men who enjoy partaking in mischief. Their trade is that of a cobbler or shoemaker. They are said to be very rich, having many treasure crocks buried.

Leprechaun's are small folk who are found in fair, green lands and enjoy frolicking, working magic, and causing harmless mischief.

The Wee-folk (as they call themselves) are about 2 feet tall. They have pointed ears and their large noses also come to a tapered point. Most male leprechauns have beards. All leprechauns have red hair and green eyes. They dress in green vests or coats, white shirts, and green breeches primarily. Most also have a long stemmed pipe.

These fun spirited, magical creatures avoid physical combat when possible, preferring to flee rather than fight. If pressed, they do have a number of abilities that are useful in combat.

Pipe-Smoke (Su) - a leprechaun can make the smoke from their pipe have magical effects. They may, once per day, create a fog cloud (as a third level caster).

Spell Like Abilities (Sp) - at will: invisibility, ventriloquism;

1/encounter: expeditious retreat, major image, mirror image;

1/day: teleport.

All spells are cast as a 5th level sorcerer and all spells are Charisma based.

Hide in Plain Sight (Su) - in any natural environment, a leprechaun may make a Hide check even under direct observation.
