Lonesome ducks are cursed animals who find everyone and everything eventually disagreeable. They are essentially immortal, which is part of their curse, and thus wander the land without making any friends. They live in diamond palaces.

Lonesome duck believes it is the only one, and specifically the only duck in all of Faerie. The truth is debatable; it seems likely that ducks do not fare well in Faerie and those that end up there are transformed into lonesome ducks. Despite their lack of social skills, lonesome ducks have enough magic to keep themselves alive.

Diamond Lairs. Lonesome ducks live in gem encrusted lairs, festooning their homes with precious stones they can steal or barter from other creatures. They have an obsessive need for these trinkets, and this urge drives them to interact with creatures they might otherwise ignore.
