Quoth the Ognik:

“Spare Change? Are you asking me for spare change? For what? Food? Cup of Coffee? Cigarettes? Dog FOOD! How about this, you give me your spare change, and I won’t destroy the pitiful scraps of your earthly existence.”

Kith Excerpt:

The Ognik are sometimes thought to be the damned souls of greedy mortals. They certainly look and play the part. They are Will-O-the-Wisps, Limniades, able to transform into an airy ephemeral ball of light and float about – easily confusable with a ghost. They are also obscenely greedy, hoarding their secret treasures and coveting the resources of others like some damned spirit that can’t let go of their lost lives. Of course, the Ognik balk at such parallels. Not the ghost part, they think that funny. No, the Ognik are disgusted with being confused for a mewling whining human who cares overmuch about finances.

The mortal masses disgust the Ognik, who in Will-O-the-Wisp fashion leads them astray. The worst of their Krew (Kith) are particularly Srogi (Unseelie) and lead wayward mortals to their demise. The Sheka (Seelie) are less murdery, but still disdain interaction with the human spectrum. This revulsion, however, will not dissuade the Ognik from pursuing mortal wealth, which is always in demand.

Traditionally the Ognik were to be found in the swamps and bogs, protecting the buried treasures they procured in life (as if they were ghosts). Nowadays there are far more clever ways to guard their vast resources. – be it actual treasure buried somewhere distant and remote, other countries are only a flight away, or liquid assets hidden through Internet backdoors, shadow companies, or other means too nebulous to recover. Bitcoin is every bit as sought after as gold.
