Magical golden beetle that rolls a weedy ball.

Bestiary Entry[edit | edit source]

Called the "Spirit of the forest," this great golden beetle camouflages paths with its weed balls and preys on confused travelers.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Leshy - the man of the woods.

The Japanese name, "ポリスーン" ("Polisun") is in reference to an alternative name for the Slavic mythological creature most commonly known as the Leshy (Rus. "Ле́ший", "[He] from the Forest") - a spirit of the forest and hunting.

While humanoid in shape, he can grow to any size in height, and assume any likeness. He is often accompanied by bears or wolves, and will lead travellers off the path, and abduct children.

Despite this, he is seen as a somewhat netural figure, often indifferent of humans, unless they somehow violate the forest.
