Greek spirits aren’t only ancient or Classical: the Exotika are a pantheon of modern Greek spirits. Exotika means “things outside” or “things beyond.” They are non-Christian spirits existing in Christian context. From a Christian perspective, spirits are either allied with God or the devil. The Exotika are spirits who are non- or pre-Christian, thus they are generally considered malevolent or, at least, outside the pale of safety.
