Susuwatari, or soot sprites, are tiny fey creatures that dwell in abandoned homes and gather in darkness. While harmless in and of themselves, they can be a nuisance to people exploring already dark dungeons.

Dust Motes. A susuwatari resembles a fuzzy black ball small enough to fit in a child’s palm, with two large eyes and a set of spindly little arms and legs. When startled, they scurry away at high speed, along floors and up walls. Though they are able to lift and carry objects, they struggle with anything heavier than a few pounds.

Fey Squatters. Susuwatari are drawn to dark and dusty areas, and as such they often congregate in abandoned homes and ruins. Swarms of them can coat every surface in a room, their sooty bodies absorbing most of the ambient light to make a dark locale even darker. A person who enters a room occupied by a susuwatari swarm while carrying a torch finds that the torch sheds less light than usual, and individuals with darkvision will see that every wall and piece of furniture is covered with a seething mass of blackness.
While this may present an intimidating sight, susuwatari are skittish creatures that will flee at the first sign of danger. They will also try to inconvenience any humanoids that take up residence in their homes, but if it becomes clear that those humanoids are there to stay, the susuwatari will abandon their dwelling and look for a new home elsewhere.

Tiny Servants. Susuwatari are sometimes summoned by other fey creatures to perform menial tasks, such as moving small items from one place to another or carrying coal to a furnace. Though they appear to find such chores fulfilling, they often struggle with their work due to their miniscule size and weakness. If another creature should stop by and assist them in their tasks, the susuwatari will be forever grateful to that creature and try to assist it in whatever small ways they can.
