Sprites are supernatural creatures that originate from European folklore. They are often depicted as fairyghost and/or elf-like creatures.

The belief in diminutive beings such as sprites, tree spirits, elves, fairies, pixiesgnomes, Japanese yōkai, the Spanish and Latin-American duende and various Slavic fairies has been common in many parts of the world, and might to some extent still be found within neo-spiritual and religious movements such as "neo-druidism" and Ásatrú. The belief in spiritual beings, particularly ghosts, is almost universal to human culture. In some elemental magics, the sprite is often believed to be the elemental of air.
