Buggane

Buggane

Region of origin: Isle of Man

Ogre-like boggarts from the Isle of Man, bugganes were brutish but generally solitary creatures, content to live away from in burrows and ruins unless disturbed (or, like people, some were just jerks looking to pick a fight), at which point they could use their great strength to mete out destruction. To this end, fairies would use bugganes as hired muscle to enact punishment on mortals who had somehow offended them.
