Ahl al-trab

The Ahl al-trab come from Islamic folklore. Living in burrow-homes just, literally just, below the surface of the Saharan sands, These humanoid creatures are tiny; practically flightless pixies.

They are mischief makers. They wait by pools of fresh water, and start to drink the water, as soon as travellers see them. By the time the traveller reaches them, the water is dry, and the Ahl al-trab disappear under the ground.

In other places they will whip the sand into a frenzy, and send it against travellers and settlements alike.
