Espiet

(Es-pe-a). Nephew of Oriande la Fée. A dwarf, not more than three feet high, with yellow hair as fine as gold, and though above a hundred years old, a seeming child of seven. He was one of the falsest knaves in the world, and knew every kind of enchantment. (Romance of Maugis d'Aygremont et de Vivia son frère.)
