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]
Quiverlings are insectoid spites that can often be found in the company of Kurnoth Hunters, especially those that use bows. They delight in being companions to their keepers and can often be seen carrying hollowed out logs or stumps on their backs, acting as makeshift quivers for their master's arrows.[5a]
They are very loyal to the Kurnoth Hunters they follow and will turn it's tiny claws on any that draw close enough to attempt to bring harm to their masters. They are also happy to carry arrows or other small items for their masters and even their masters' other companions.[5a]
The Wardroth Beetle 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.
