The Spriton Clan ("SPRY-ten")[1] was a Gelfling clan which resided in Sami Thicket. Its members were primarily farmers, and had a reputation for knowing soil as well as the Dousan knew death.[2] They further distinguished themselves by writing in a different alphabet from the other clans.[3] Like the Vapra, they rode on Landstriders,[4][5] though they also used large knuckle-walking reptiles as mounts.[4]

The Spriton, under the leadership of Elder Carn, were the first clan to pledge themselves to the Alliance of the Crystal.[4] When the Darkening began harming their crops, the Spriton were forced to trade grains with the Stonewood Clan.[6]

Other appearancesEdit

In The Dark Crystal: Author Quest press release and J.M. Lee's young adult novel series, the Spriton are portrayed as a warlike clan which disputed with the Stonewood Clan over ownership of the Dark Wood.
