Scotty's Scholarly Scroll: Leprechaun

Entry 1: Leprechaun

A Leprechaun is a magical creature in the service of the fairy folk.  Said to be poor cobblers since they often only make one shoe, these creatures actually have a variety of tasks.  They serve as the Fairy Queens reserve agents, but normally they are free to live their lives as they see fit.  Every Leprechaun possess magical powers and the ability to grant wishes.  However, most Leprechauns are stingy with their magic and will only use it if they are required to.  If a Leprechaun is trapped, the one who releases him is given two to three wishes; even if the one who releases him is the one who trapped him.  Irish Leprechauns are crafty with their magic and the wishes they grant often do not turn out like the wisher intended.  Not all Leprechauns are Irish, but most do originate around the area humans know to be the United Kingdom.  It is said that Scottish Leprechauns are bonded to one who releases them with unlimited wishes, and those wishes do not have negative repercussions, but they are the rarest type of Leprechaun in the world.
