An elemental is the spirit embodiment one of the five elements, earth, water, air, fire, and spirit. Elementals often go by many different names depending on who you talk to. They are sometimes called fairies, elves, devas, brownies, leprechauns, gnomes, sprites, pixies, banshees, goblins, dryads, mermaids, trolls, dragons, griffins, and so on. These are the nature spirits that are also known as elementals. The elemental spirits are thought to possess supernatural powers, are typically thought to be invisible, live among the trees, rivers, plants, bogs, mountains, and other such minerals. They attach or are attracted to just about every natural thing.
