Fauns in Wikipedia
The faun (also phaunos or faunus) is a rustic forest god or
place-spirit (genii) of Roman mythology often associated with
Greek satyrs and the Greek god Pan. The faun is a half

half, but with the addition of goat's horns) manifestation of
forest and animal spirits which would help or hinder humans at
whim. Romans believed fauns inspired fear in men traveling in
lonely, remote or wild places but were also capable of guiding
humans in need...
