According to the Shorter Oxford Dictionary, a wight is a living being or creature, sometimes but not necessarily human,

Three Woodwights

also chiefly with an epithet (good or bad) applied to supernatural, preternatural or unearthly beings. Woodwights are associated with trees. They are mainly known today for the help they offer to Woodwoses. Some Woodwoses started off as Woodwights, and others take up the role later.

The first Woodwights to emerge were Sara Vogan and Chris Bloor who emerged with Woodwose II on Christmas Eve 2007.
