Rose Goblins are flower fae, made from cuttings of the Blodynbryd. They look like cat shaped rosebushes, covered with short, soft-looking pink and gray rose thorns, with shorter thorns on ears and muzzle. Like porcupines, they can only be petted one way. They do not flower[1] or have rosebush infestations or diseases. While they have some magical ability, they are about as intelligent and as flighty as a real cat and are not much of a threat, even to changelings. While they cannot talk, they communicate by rattling their thorns and producing some whining vocalizations. Rose goblins often smell of peat moss and roses.

Rose goblins are very tied to the bushes that they came from, and all of them know Luna Torquill.

Quote Edit

It looked like "the bastard child of a house-cat and a rosebush. It looked small, harmless, and completely out of place." ~ Toby, Rosemary and Rue, ch-8.
“Rose goblins are built like porcupines - if you rub them the right way, you don't have to worry about the spines. They're sort of like people in that regard, too.​” ― Rosemary and Rue.
