El Trenti. Imp or spirit of moss, typical of Cantabria, he is also known as "musgoso" or "simiot". He is very difficult to see, because he is covered by moss, mushrooms, leaves and fern, and you can only distinguish his green eyes and black face. He dwells in the only poor remnants of forest that are still rid of human beings. In summer, he sleeps under trees, in winter he prefers shelter. His incessant jokes can be very annoying. Especially, he likes to ambush walkers to frighten them, but his preferred joke is pulling maid's skirts. Nevertheless, the trenti is never evil.
