"Will o' the Wisp": It is given several origins and is often considered a death omen. Sometimes it is thought to be a tricksy boggart, sometimes it is ghostly in origin, a soul who for some sin could not rest. For instance, Will the Smith was debarred from both Heaven and Hell. The most the Devil would do for him was to give him a piece of burning pit coal to warm himself, which he flickers over boggy ground to lure poor wanderers to their death. -Katharine Briggs, And Encyclopedia of Faeries
