Another Greek Demon seen associated with Spartan and related Communities, The Cercopes was a Forest dwelling Being, which was the main instigator of all ''mischief and trouble'' which occurred. The Cercopes featured in many ancient poems and stories. Hercules encountered the race and they were mentioned in his ''Trials'' (epic tale). Possibly the origin for Gremlins, some Historian cite that Greek encounters with primates, may have been the real source of of The Cercopes. Described as ''humanoid'' and covered (partially) in fur, The Cercopes bore a single blunted horn on the tops of their heads.
