Descriptions of a subterranean race of dwarves or Elves exists across the globe. It is also common that the dwarfs are also attached to the "spirit realm." The origin of these "Earth Spirits" also known as Elemental is with the Fallen Angels who produced both the giants and the race of Elves. Like the giants, their spirits are forever bound to the earth, according to the Book of Enoch. The Cherokee Indians in this region shared this legend of a race of fairies and pixies.
