Ghosts And Spirits Index





These field sprites frequent farmhouses on the Isle of Man and help farmers with their chores, only asking for a bowl of cream at the day's end, much like the Brownie. They may also appear as small grey water horses or lambs, always with unusually long tails. They are not entirely benevolent, as those slighted have been known to run amok, raping women and destroying crops, usually when they or their families have been injured by the farmer's land clearance. Farmers should loudly explain their intentions as they walk past areas known to be inhabited by glastyns, giving them ample time to relocate.
