Spites are faerie-like, highly magical beings with an incredible diversity in temperament and form. They are some of the oldest allies of the Sylvaneth, often accompanying them to war, sometimes even end up being used as living wargear. Spites are capricious and playful creatures, something even the ill-tempered Branchwyches are known to indulge, but have a caring side. Should a Sylvaneth Grove be invaded they will relish in misleading outsiders and wanderers to their doom.
Bittergrubss are caterpillar-like Spites who often serve as faithful companions and protectors to Branchwyches. Large and vicious, Bittergrubs are equipped with powerful mandibles with which they will attack enemies and protect their Branchwych on whose shoulders they often ride. Devouring a substantial portion of an enemy will allow it to form a cocoon and over many days it will transform in a shimmering cloud of pollen which can restore even the most corrupted ground.[2a]
Wardroth Beetles is the personal mount of Alarielle and one of the largest spites. It is a living battering ram capable of breaking both infantry and fortifications. Should the Radiant Queen with to fly, the Wardroth Beetle will turn into a swarm glowspites, only to return to his original form when she lands. When the current incarnation falls, Alarielle can grow a new one using Soulseeds.
|Your new grub would not leave you. It gnawed away the rotten wood and gave your wound a chance to reknit. I thought about cutting it in half but I trust the spites more than I trust you, Harvester. May you serve them well.
~ Du'gath the Outcast to Nellas. 
- Some theories among the Sylvaneth speculate that the outcasts, specially the Spite-Revenants, were once Spites.
