Fat Lips is a Goblin creature who derives form a old account from 18th northern England. Once a lady lost her lover in the Jacobite rebellion of 1745. She ran away from society stricken with grief and took up hermitage in Dryburgh Abbey in Berwickshire. She would often emerge from the cellar of the abbey to beg passers by for food. Some say she lost her mind and spoke nonsense but others see truth in what she told. She believed that during her time at the abandoned abbey she was accompanied by a Goblin whom she called Fat Lips. As she lived in the cell, Fat Lips dried her cell and prevented from becoming damp by trampling the clay ground with his iron boots. Metal boots are known to be worn by the border spirits of England known as the Red Caps.
