This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.
I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes. It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants. 🙂
Imps are the hot topic of the day. They are considered more mischievous than evil or harmful. In German folklore, the imp is considered to be a small lesser demon. They are often described or seen as unattractive small creatures. They are known to seek out humans to have as friends because they’re lonely. When they make friends they often make jokes or pull pranks on them. In some cases, they are believed to be familiars for witches and warlocks.

Must be where the term mischievous little imp comes from.
It has to be. I’m always calling my nieces and nephews that.
I’ve used imps in one story as demon-raiser’s attack creatures – very useful little demons 🙂

Cool. I’m glad I decided to participate in the challenge. I’m getting all kinds of ideas of creatures to use in books that I hadn’t thought about before. 🙂
i’ve had imps in a couple of pieces before. i think there pretty cool for minor demons.
They are. I may have to use them in later books. 🙂
I always thought they were more evil than mischievous. Learned something new today!
