Hey fediverse, I'm trying to think of some cool, obscure and friendly mythical creatures from existing folklore. The kind who could plausibly be friends of a young child. Anyone have any suggestions? :D

@quinnstephens brownies aren't really obscure, but very rarely seen in modern stories.
in Irish folklore, iirc, werewolves were protectors of families. Werewolves aren't obscure, but that specific version of them is.
