Alats- They are funny little creatures they talk in their own way;
they are never more than a few inches high. They are cousins of the
brownies. Except where the brownies are helpful, Alats are destructive
most of the time. Now they can be tamed and helpful just like the
brownies, but most are playful, and want to play and wreak havoc. Their
fur is a bright pink, their heads shaped like a humans but with a cat’s
nose and ears. Alats like to play common everyday things like string and
little tin toys.
