Urisk stands about 1 meter, or aproximately 3 feet tall. He appears much like a satyr, but without the brawny build and great sexual libido. He is thin and generally wimpy looking. He also has no horns. His head is quite bald, except for a goatee. His flesh is made of fine, bark-less wood, and his hair is made from moss and leaves. His eyes are sad liquid green pools underneath his sagging brows.
Urisk is a very cowardly fey.
He has lived for centuries in the way he lives even today, sitting by his woodland pool, staring into the waters with a heartbreaking expression on his face. He may be the loneliest being in all of Creation, but only because he is also the ultimate coward.
When travellers pass near his pond in the woods, Urisk surreptitiously follows them. He often makes his presence subtly known, scattering leaves, purposefully cracking twigs, but when the travellers turn to see who is following them, Urisk becomes afraid that they will laugh at him or attack him, and he uses his spiritual powers to disappear.
Such a sad, lonely little fey...

Shortest thing I've written in a while.
i think that Urisk could be expanded upon and fleshed out into a good character. The libido of the satyrs is well known, but perhaps the exploits of a Bilbo Baggins-esque satyr who lives in a near chihuahua like state of fear but is driven by his own almost alien libido... interesting.
Nice but it could be a bit more fleshed out. 3/5
Reading this again I am left with a question, why is Urisk such a coward? The Fae, being more manifestations of emotions and such, rather than biological entities, is Urisk the fear of sexual rejection? Or something of that nature? Bah! I need more coffee
And another fae to populate Faerie. It'd be even more useful if it was a bit more fleshed out, but it's still good. Thanks, Cap.
With sub has good potential, and with an update to expand upon it, would be another unique sub for the fey collection. Like Scrasamax said, what happened to make the fey such a coward? Is he a coward just to other creatures besides fey, or fey as well? (And if yes to both is there a different reason behind each?)
Its a good idea, but little more than that. I'd like to see more details, mainly reasons for him being pusillanimous. As it is, there's really not much to him. So what if there's a random twig-break behind the party? Unless there just so happens to be a massive bear just out of sight, the only thing that would probably happen is that the party would poke around in the bushes, shrug, and leave.
I like - simple and quiet. He sits in the casting room looking for a role. I'm sure there is one.
