The Redcap is a murderous goblin that inhabits abandoned castles and fortresses along the Anglo-Scottish border. This malicious creature lingers in areas of past bloodshed and battles. Wielding a pikestaff, the Redcap waits for his victims to stumble upon the ruins where he will then kill them and soak his cap with their blood. His namesake comes from his blood-colored cap dyed red from his ill-fated victims.
