A small human-like creature with blazing red eyes, wearing a red hat and having a long white beard. He has eagle claws for hands which he uses to kill humans with. He is so called ‘Red Cap’ because he stains his hat with the blood of his victims. He wears boots made from iron but this does not slow him down. He is extremely agile and quick, jumping and running from one place to another. The Red Cap lives among a pile of rocks and fears Witch Hunters. The best way to protect oneself from Red Cap is to recite the words from the Bible of which it fears the most. Hearing these holy words will send him running away as fast as he can.
