Red Caps are vicious little monsters from the City of Heroes franchise and one of the main hostile factions of the game, they are based on the Redcaps of folklore and are a rather faithful adaptation to the legend.
Red Caps are malicious and forever seeking ways to do harm to others or to spread hate and fear within communities, enjoying the problems caused by such behavior.
They are inspired by the folklore of Redcaps, malicious goblins believed to haunt scenes of violence and war.
Red Caps are universally ugly humanoid males with long arms, hunched bodies, white beards and distinctive red caps - they are Fey and thus range in size from extremely small to quite large, by human standards the average Red Cap gives off an appearance not unlike a stereotypical "garden gnome" but this appearance hides a truly vicious monster that delights in violence.
