Mites are among the least powerful, and least attractive, of the subterranean species of fey. They have a strong connection to vermin of all types, and often use these creatures to protect their underground lairs. Their most intense hatred is reserved for dwarves and gnomes (particularly the Darklands-dwelling svirfneblin), but because of their natural cowardice, this seldom leads to serious violence.[1]

Tactics

Being physically weak, mites prefer to overwhelm their opponents with superior numbers, cutting at their enemies with small knives in a bloodthirsty frenzy.[2]

Mites on Golarion

Most mites on Golarion live in the Darklands realm of Nar-Voth, where they inhabit the smallest, darkest tunnels. The dwarves joke that this is because mites are so ugly that they can't stand to look at one another, which is a cruel inaccuracy, since mites see quite well in darkness due to their darkvision.[2] The largest known population of mites can be found in the upside-down city known as the Court of Ether, where they dwell alongside thousands of their fey brethren and are ruled by Queen Frilogarma.[3]

Mites on the surface

In the past, the goblins of the Varisian city of Magnimar's sewer competed for space and resources with a population of mites who had made their way up from the Darklands realm of Nar-Voth. The sewer goblins eventually won this contest and drove the blue-skinned creatures to migrate to other areas, such as the pilings of the Irespan.[4]
