Nathair Sgiathach (pronounced "neigh-er skey-ak," meaning "winged serpent") is the pseudodragon deity of Mischief and Pranks. His symbol is a smile.

Description

Nathair Sgiathach appears as a tiny, 2-foot long, thin-bodied dragon with a prehensile tail, gossamer butterfly wings, and a huge smile.

Relationships

Nathair Sgiathach is an offspring of the draconic deity Io, and a member of the Seelie Court. Another draconic deity, Hlal, is also portrayed as a faerie dragon, and the two may be one and the same.

He does not concern himself with the affairs of other dragons, and loves the faerie folk. His powerful magical abilities are recognized as a great resource by Titania and the other sylvan deities. Nathair's constant pranks can get tiring, though, even for a faerie court, which is why Nathair is part of their Outer Circle, not their Inner Circle.

Dogma

Nathair Sgiathach loves to play and indulge his curiosity and love of pranks. He is both pompous and self-deflating. He is a childish being, fond of illusions that cause large folk's bottoms to glow red and emit folk music and the like. He believes in fiercely defending threatened sylvan folk, however. He is also a big believer in apple pie.

Worshippers

Nathair Sgiathach is revered by pseudodragons and faerie dragons alike, as well as sprites, pixies, and grigs.
