the black metal mole!
Bugganes were said to be covered in black hair, with claws, tusks and a large red mouth. As they were known to tunnel underground, they might be said to resemble a giant mole, though they were intelligent and spoke to people on occasion.
A Buggane always has a particular home such as an old ruin, forest or waterfall, where it will remain unless disturbed somehow. One of the places known to house a Buggane is the ruined church of St. Trinians, built on the site of an ancient pagan burial ground in the village of Marown on the Isle of Man.
The most famous story involving a Buggane relates that one repeatedly tore the roof off St. Trinian’s church. Another story tells of a woman’s narrow escape after a Buggane is sent by the fairies to punish her for baking after sunset.
