Pixies, from folklore around Cornwall, England, are mischievous little winged folk who live in moors and forests.

One myth states that pixies were a race of people who were not good enough for heaven or bad enough for hell so they was forced to stay on earth forever. Another legend claims that they were Druids who resisted Christianity so god smites them by making them grow smaller until they accept Christianity. They would often play tricks on people by stealing things or throwing things at them. At night they would steal horses and bring them back before dawn leaving only tangled manes to show they were there.
