The púca (or pooka) is a shapeshifting fey of Celtic folklore which can take on a variety of forms. They're notoriously unpredictable and might help or hinder those they encounter at their whim.

The Púca has either dark or white hair or fur in all of its forms. While they can take on any animal form, common shapes are those of horses, cattle, cats, dogs, wolves, rabbits, ravens, foxes, or goats.

Its natural form is similar to a satyr or faun, which includes various animal features such as a tail, ears, and horns.
