      <name> does a high-stepping highland dance. You avert your eyes as his kilt comes dangerously close to his waist level.
      <name> throws his arms over his head and does a little tip-toe ballet. You'd laugh, but you like having all your bones intact.
      <name> does some combination of a jig and a reel. He looks mainly like a guy in an invisible mosh pit.
      <name> looks at you, horrified. "Crivens, mate!" he says. "You're no' tryin' to battle completely sober, are ye? Have a heidfull o' this!" He tosses you a bottle of absinthe.

  • With lucky Tam O'Shanter equipped:

  • With wax lips equipped:
    <name> says "Crivens! I can barely breathe wi' these thingies on!" from under the wax lips.

  • When entered in an Obstacle Course:
    The general green pixie approach to an obstacle is to headbutt it until it ceases to become an obstacle, which isn't an optimal strategy here.


  • The bottles of absinthe drop a maximum of five times a day.
  • The Green Pixie doesn't drop absinthe if you're already under the Absinthe-Minded effect.

  • This familiar will attack 1/3 of the time, regardless of the weight. It does int(X/2) to X in damage (regardless of the message seen) where X is the familiar's weight. The three attack messages are equally likely.


  • The familiar, including its image filename (pictsie.gif), is a reference to the Nac Mac Feegle, a type of fairy found in the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett.
  • The name of the familiar and the absinthe ability are references to another name for absinthe, La Fée Verte, French for "The Green Fairy".
  • The haiku and the familiar's speech reflect a heavy highland Scottish brogue or accent, which is consistent with Pratchett's Nac Mac Feegle. Dinnae = do not, Heid = head, Fash = worry, etc.
  • Jigs and reels are both popular Scottish and Irish folk dances.
  • A tartan is a pattern of plaid, historically used especially in Scotland and other Celtic countries to indicate clan and family.
  • Riverdance, noted for helping to popularize Irish culture especially in the mid-'90s, is a theatrical show composed largely of rapid-movement Irish step dances.
  • "Crivens" is a mild Scottish oath popularized by Oor Wullie, a comic book character central to Scottish culture since 1937.
  • The "schemie" referred to in the first quote is an insult prevalent in the Edinburgh area to denote those of a lower class or intellectual level, who usually live in a Council Housing Scheme, known for being poor or rough areas.
  • The attack message about averting your eyes as the pixie's kilt gets higher refers to the legend that Scottish warriors wouldn't wear any underwear, apparently to terrify their opponents (if they could cope with cold wind blowing up their kilt then they could cope with pain in battle).
