A tiny vegetarian creature resembling a little (maximum height 6 inches) green human, the leprechaun is one of the occasional anomalies of the beast/being classification system. Although they alone of the “little people” have the ability to speak human language, they are classified as beasts, and have remained in that category as they have never requested re-classification (although they appear to have made no political statement by this, unlike centaurs and merpeople (FB). They are able to produce a gold-like substance that vanishes after an hour or two (GF8, GF28). Leprechauns are the Irish National Quidditch Team’s mascots (GF8).
