Considering its geographic focus, why the book is not simply called Welsh Goblins remains a mystery. They come in five varieties: Ellyllon elves , Coblynau mine fairies , Bwbachod household fairies , Gwragedd Annwn underwater fairies , and Gwyllion mountain fairies.

Their hands are clad in the bells of the foxglove, the leaves of which are a powerful sedative.
