In the World of Darkness role-playing game by White Wolf, Inc. the Pooka is a trickster changeling, a fey creature trapped within the body of a human being. Like each of the other kiths, Pookas have special advantages and disadvantages. Its advantage is its ability to turn into a specific animal when no one is watching, and its disadvantage is its inability to make any true statement without first expending great amounts of willpower.
Pooka is the former songwriting duo of UK guitarists/vocalists http://www.sharonlewis.net Sharon Lewis and http://natashajones.org Natasha Jones. Taking their name from a mythical Irish goblin that first appears friendly but has the habit of turning nasty, the duo likewise had a way of keeping their audience spellbound with sweet melodies, lush arrangements and alluring lyrics only to turn with spine-tingling vengeance toward twisted guitar chords and menacing vocal arrangements.
