The little people dressed in red are Moorfolk, magic elfin creatures who live in caverns underneath the moor.  Only other Moorfolk can see them; Saaski can see them because her mother was one of them, although her father was human.  Tinkwa is the name of the Folk person who appears to Saaski the most, although others do accompany him at times also.  The little people chase around Saaski because they want to steal her bagpipes.
