Boggles were creatures born out of feelings of loneliness, materializing where the Feywild touched the world in proximity to an intelligent being that felt isolated or abandoned. Boggles were not murderous, and preferred to do simple tricks such as breaking dishes, and so on.[2]

Boggles could excrete a sticky or slippery nonflammable oil at will from their body, which they used if they needed to escape quickly from danger.[2]
