  1. Sprig

    Sprig is a fictional character from the Grey Griffins series, written by Derek Benz and J. S. Lewis. Sprig is a mysterious shape-shifting spriggan, whose motives are unknown. Her early history is unclear, apart from the fact that she served as a handmaiden of Titania, the Faerie Queen, until the spriggan stole her mistress' Jewel. For her crime, she was hunted across the Shadowlands and subsequently on Earth as well. At some point she was captured and imprisoned within the Codex Spiritus and remained there for thousands of years until finally freed by Max Sumner. It is confirmed in The Fall of the Templar that Sprig is Max's Bounder, attached to him as closely as his own soul.
