Willo the Wisp
|A Willo the Wisp is a "Sprite of the marshes".
Willo is the storyteller - a mixture of nosy gossip and objective narrator. He is the only character with any real intellect. He appears as only half - seen, manifesting as a ghostly, but re-assuring apparition. Willo is an spirit-like character who is always surrounded by light, a glow, like St.Elmo's Fire.
The other inhabitants of Doyley Woods only refer to him on occasion and he seldom interacts with them. He does however continually comment on the various happenings in the woods.
