Bendith Y Mamau
Bendith Y mamau, or Mother’s Blessings, are believed to be the unwholesome offspring of goblins and faeries. From the faeries they inherit an aptitude for music. The males have rich and resonant voices and the females sing in sweet and lilting tones. They are also strangely graceful and possess faerie magic. however, All else about them is distinctly goblinish. From their mean tempers to their appearance. Bendith Y mamau are stunted, ugly, and short. They sport twisted limbs and greyish skin. Their eyes are puckered and squinted and their noses large. Their mouths are grim with the lower lip protruding over the upper. Blessings’ hair is thick, wiry, and ginger in colour. Although the males are balding, their eyebrows are particularly bushy. Their ears are large, round, and protruding.
Bendith Y mamau troops live in underground caverns. They dislike humans and cause mischief by scaring off farm animals, destroying tools and household items, and stealing children. Most are terrible cowards and make every effort not to be seen. If confronted, a Mother’s Blessing always returns a stolen child. They avoid combat, but if forced prefer to rely on magic.
