Puca - Creatures of Fae preview

In Gaelic, Caeltic and Welsh folk lore the Puca (or puck (English), pwwca (Welsh)) is a mischievous nature fae who can bring either good or bad fortune onto the person or peoples that cross his path. Some folklore claims them to be purely evil man-eaters, while other tales show the puca as being friendly and enjoying farming.
In Eira, the Puca are closer to the character of Puck in “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” in so much that they are often oblivious to their actions and the consequences of those actions. Puca are immortal fae and are one of the few of the lesser fae to have taken an interest in mortal races out of curiosity not in an attempt to flee the war between the Un-Sidhe and Au-Sidhe courts. While generally nice and good-natured the puca have no inhabitions and live in a constant state of the here and now.  The majority of the fae do not trust puca and during the war neither side attempted to coax the puca into their ranks for fear of their unpredictable nature.
