Found out this legend about a red dwarf in the Detroit area that is the forebringer of bad luck. Also known as "Nain Rouge". here is a link with more info, but was curious to know if anyone knows about this legend. Sounds creepy. Here are two links with great info. The second is more in depth. I would love your comments.

The story was told best in Legends of Le Détroit, 1884. Read both "The Nain Rouge" and "The May Pole" for the full account.
