Skyrim's spriggans

I'll admit that Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has been taking up quite a lot of my time during these holidays. I'm not going to give a detailed review of what I think of it, as there's plenty to read on the internet already; I'm just going to write that I was pleasantly surprised on my adventures when I bumped into a "spriggan" and was eerily reminded of the character I made on my previous module.

In Skyrim they are tree spirits who act as "nature's guardians". If I'd known about spriggans - originally creatures of Cornish faery lore - I'd have certainly used them as a reference in designing my character.
