This is a one-foot-tall creature with pointed ears, slanted eyes, and long lithe limbs. Its hair is brightly colored and decorated with leaves and twigs and it is dressed in greenish-brown clothes. It carries a tiny spear in its hands.

Forgotten ones are a sprite race related to pixies. These wee folk are natural spies and trackers and are routinely employed by powerful forest-guarding fey creatures such as unicorns, dryads, and nymphs. It is not uncommon for travelers in a fey forest to be followed by scores of forgotten ones, all moving unnoticed through the treetops as quickly and quietly as squirrels. While some forgotten ones keep track of the interlopers, others send messages back and forth to alert more powerful fey guardians to the presence of outsiders.

A forgotten one is about a foot tall with pointed ears, slanted eyes, and long, nimble limbs. Most forgotten ones weave twigs and leaves into their hair for decoration and to help conceal themselves in the treetops. Rangers are druids are especially fond of the forgotten ones, and often use them as intermediaries between themselves and the greater fey guardians of the forest.

Forgotten ones try to avoid combat with anything larger than themselves – they are well aware of their own limitations. If hard pressed or ordered into combat by a greater fey creature to defend their forest, forgotten ones will fight with courage not often attributed to creatures of such small size.
