Dobies are tiny (about 2 foot tall) fey who like to exchange their help for food. They dress in clothing similar to peasant farmers. They look like brownies, but their ears are barely pointed.

In the Feywild, they are gatherers living off the bounty of the land. Often they will attach themselves to good-aligned fey and offer to do menial tasks for food.

On the Material Plane, they attach themselves to a farm. They do small tasks in exchange for gleaning the fields after harvest.

In either case, they are very loyal to "their" fey or farm and will attempt to protect it if threatened.
