Root imps are the significantly more mobile cousins of the mandrake root. While their personalities have a wide range, they all tend to have one trait in common: they love making mischief.
A root imp’s face is somewhat like a mask, and tends to vary greatly in appearance between each imp, as they are shaped by their personality and experiences.
As their name implies, root imps grow underground, with only their ears poking up above the soil. When they hear the sound of crunching leaves in autumn, they wriggle themselves free to wander among the other creatures of the world.
They are often taken as familiars by witches, and sometimes they’ll befriend humans of their own accord. They seem to be especially fond of people who are mischief-makers in their own right or notably young at heart.
The imps are made of soft “minky” fabric and faux fur. They have urethane resin faces with unique details sculpted in Apoxie Sculpt, and glass eyes. Their faces are hand-painted with acrylic paints and sealed with a protective coating. Their root fingers are made of hemp rope, and they are stuffed with polyester Cluster Stuff. They each stand about 7.5 inches tall.
These are one-of-a-kind art pieces and are not rated for small children.
