Location: Civilized Area/Haunted home/Eldritch location
Height/Weight: Half that of an average human.
Summary: Greed. It can do things to a man. But what about a remnant of a bygone age? As it turns out, it can do worse. So much worse...
History: Centuries ago, the Leprechauns were put in charge of guarding the massive loot of a human king. Once he passed away, the beings retreated back to their homes. All except one by the name of Lubdan. For he was consumed by avarice, and hoarded all 100 shillings for himself. And he kept it all the way to his seeming grave. But once someone steals and/or takes even one piece of it, Lubdan will rise again to violently seek it out.
Notable Kills: Long deep breath...the pogo stick death, entrancing someone into sticking his head into a propeller, burning someone with scalding gasses, running a cop over with a tricked-out kart, sabotaging a sex-bot to electrocute its partner, makes a woman's breasts and lips and hips expand until she explodes, chops a guy to pieces with a lightsaber, rises out of a man's crotch area, smashes a guy's face so it's flat as a pancake, turns a man into a horrific insectoid abomination just so he can get offed later, finger guns a guy to death, rips out of a big person's stomach, shoves a bong thorough a guy's torso, rips out of another torso, runs over a man’s head while it's attached to a mailbox, vertically slices a man in half with a falling solar panel, lodges a sprinkler head in a girl's mouth, decapitates someone with a drone, and has an army of mini-mes trip a girl into smashing her head against a trophy. Just...wow...
Final Fate: If you're done picking your jaw off the floor, you'll find that just about every time Lubdan comes, he's sent back to the afterlife one way or another. Pre reboot, his last fate was falling into quick dry cement along with his gold. Now, he was last seen catching a rather dreary ride to Bismark to reclaim his gold.
Powers/Abilities: The more gold Lubdan has, the more powerful he becomes. Even a bit of gold makes his magical properties boundless.
Weakness: It's best to destroy him when there is little gold around. Aside from that, four leaf clovers are his kryptonite.
Scariness Factor: 4.5-This half-pint might be one of the most twisted killers we've seen, right next to Freddy Krueger. And like the dream demon, his twisted sense of humor is oddly endearing, mainly due to his spirited performance and major creativity. At the very least, he only attacks people who either insult him or block him from his gold.
Trivia: -With the exception of the reboot, Lubdan has been played by Warwick Davis, who claimed that he skimped on the reboot because he had kids, and wasn't interested in doing horror stuff because of it.
-In true Irish mythology, the leprechaun is a fairy that grants people three wishes in exchange for freedom if it is captured, though it didn't become a staple of Irish legend until more recent times. They also have a penchant for shoe-shining, something even Lubdan cannot resist.
