To guard you in all your ways.

In German folklore, a mischievous spirit, occa-
sionally malicious. There are two types of kobolds: a
household kobold that is comparable to the
of British folklore, and a mine kobold that is
comparable to the Cornish
and the American
The household kobold, when in a good mood, helps
with chores, looks after horses, fi nds lost objects and sings
to children to keep them occupied. Food must be left for
him, otherwise he becomes angry and turns to pranks,
such as pushing someone over just as they stoop to pick
something up, or hiding household objects. Kobolds are
given names, such as Heinze, Chimmeken and Walther.
In Saxon lore, a
is a type of household kobold
who lives in the cellar. In exchange for a daily jug of beer,
he will clean bottles and jugs.
The mine kobolds are almost always evil and mali-
cious, and try to hinder the miners by causing accidents
