A kobold is a small goblin-like spirit, who can be both helpful and mischievous.

He often helps with household chores, but sometimes hides tools and implements. His favourite prank is to kick over stooping people, and he can get very angry if he is not fed properly. He sometimes sings to children.

Some kobolds are believed to be spirits dwelling in caves and mines. Other kobolds have specific names - like Hodeken or Goldemar.

Kobolds are generally found in Germanic folklore.
