Creatures from the beliefs of Indo-Europeans. They are said to be spirits or Angels that are manifestations of the four elements. Fire appears as the flaming lizard the Salamander, Air appears as Sylphus, Earth appears as the little Gnome and Water appears as Undine. There are two other spirits that became part of the Elementals. These are Satyrs which are the manifestation of animal life, and Dryads the manifestation of vegetation. These Elementals are said to bring desires and wishes true. They are used by practitioners of Wicca, Alchemy and Druidry. It is believed that too much contact with one Elemental will bring mental unbalance and is very dangerous for the psyche.
