"Chin-Chin Kobakama" is the name given to a certain type of Japanese faerie, though it is known to show up in China once in a while as well. These faeries usually manifest as elderly elf-like creatures that function much like brownies in that they live in the home and protect the inhabitants from harm. It is good to have one living in your house because that way no other supernatural creatures can take up residence there. Chin-Chin Kobakama do not generally clean house like brownies do, however; while brownies get mad if there is not work for them to do, these faeries prefer hosts that keep clean houses, and also require food to be set out for them in order for them to be happy guests.
