Sometimes human ships infringe upon the kobold's sea domain. Hidden behind the craggy rocks, she contemplates how best to attack the vessel. "How many humans are on board, I wonder?

The kobold (occasionally cobold) is a sprite stemming from Germanic mythology. Wikipedia.com
The name of the element cobalt comes from the creature's name, because medieval miners blamed the sprite for the poisonous and troublesome nature of the typical arsenical ores of this metal (cobaltite and smaltite) which polluted other mined elements. Wikipedia.com
