1. brownie
A small faerie creature or woodland sprite, said by some to be mischievous, and by others to be a good-natured domestic helper. Sidriss, in the presence of Motley and dungeoneer Matt of Team 1 of Series 6, attempted to "invoke a brownie" using a rhyming incantation. She failed, summoning a "ruddy great pooka" instead. Motley, despite being a professional jester, made no comment on the toilet humour.

Fascinatingly, the Gaelic word for brownie is gruagach. According to the first Knightmare novella, the Gruagach was the name of the malevolent entity that inhabited Knightmare Castle before Treguard reclaimed it.
