There are a number of creatures particular to Cornish folklore, although their cousins can be found elsewhere in Cornwall under different names and guise. One of these strains is the Piskie also known as a Pixie in other Western Countries.
The Piskie is a general name for a fairy race or tribe in Cornwall. In appearance they look like old men with wrinkled faces and are small in stature with red hair. They dress in the colors of the earth especially green, using natural materials such as moss, grass and lichen.
