Random information on the term “Sprite”:

A sprite is a supernatural entity. They are often depicted as fairy-like creatures or as an ethereal entity.

The word “sprite” is derived from the Latin “spiritus” (spirit), via the French “esprit”. Variations on the term include “spright” and the Celtic “spriggan”. The term is chiefly used in regard to elves and fairies in European folklore, and in modern English is rarely used in reference to spirits.

There are examples of sprites and similar entities in literature, one of which is the air spirit Ariel in Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

The belief in diminutive beings such as sprites, elves, fairies, etc. has been common in many parts of the world, and might to some extent still be found within neo-spiritual and religious movements such as “neo-druidism” and Ásatrú.

In some elemental magics, the sprite is often believed to be the elemental of air (see also sylph).

Random information on the term “ELF”:

An elf, in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, is a humanoid race, one of the primary races available for player character. Elves are renowned for their grace and mastery of magic and weapons such as the sword and bow. Becoming physically mature by the age of 25 and emotionally mature at around 125, they are also famously long-lived, capable of living more than half a millennium and remaining physically youthful. Possessed of innate beauty and easy gracefulness, they are viewed as both wondrous and haughty by other races; however, their natural detachment is seen by some as introversion or xenophobia.

There are numerous different subraces and subcultures of elves, including aquatic elves, dark elves (drow), deep elves (rockseer), grey elves, high elves, moon elves, snow elves, sun elves, valley elves, wild elves (grugach), wood elves and winged elves (avariel). The offspring of humans and elves are known as “half-elves” among humans, and as “half-humans” among elves.
