The Spriton Clan ("SPRY-ten") 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. They further distinguished themselves by writing in a different alphabet from the other clans. Like the Vapra, they rode on Landstriders, though they also used large knuckle-walking reptiles as mounts.
The Spriton, under the leadership of Elder Carn, were the first clan to pledge themselves to the Alliance of the Crystal. When the Darkening began harming their crops, the Spriton were forced to trade grains with the Stonewood Clan.
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.
