1. Puck
 [Related Image] A pooka who featured in the quest of Team 5 of Series 6. The team found it in a bottle in the Level 2 clue area, and picked it up. Later, in exchange for a ring, Greystagg told the team the pooka's name, thereby giving them the power to summon it from the bottle and command it. This they did when harangued by Skarkill, scaring him into giving dungeoneer Ben the key to the Level 2 descender. Puck was last seen pursuing Skarkill.

It seems likely that Puck was named for the mischievous elf in William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

"William Shakespeare's Puck is widely thought to take his name from the word 'pooka' (or, more accurately, púca), which Shakespeare is assumed to have corrupted. Because of his animalistic qualities, some scholars believe that Puck himself is a pooka.

The one in the bottle probably isn't the same Puck, though."
