A Scottish version of the Satyr. It has the body of a human from above and of a goat below. They have small horns on their heads and they live in the forest people. They have a strong sexual behaviour and like to get drunk often. Eventually over time the Satyr became the form of the Devil in Christianity. It is similar in nature to the Brownie. Some consider Urisk to be a sub-species of Fuath.
