The Folk o' the Woodsie — commonly called Pagans, and a term they've been known to call themselves (Thief names them this more as a race, not an impersonal or disparaging slur), represent the human faction aligned with the forces of nature and chaos in the Thief world. They are primitive humans and beasts who promote nature and chaos at the expense of technological and environmentally-destructive progress. The shamans, warriors and humanoid beast members of the Pagan peoples pray to the Trickster, whom they most often call the Woodsie Lord, an ancient god of nature and chaos. The Hierarchy of Pagan society like the Hammerites structure, sees the god the Trickster at the top, followed by special powerful entities such as Viktoria, subsequently followed by the elite caste of shamans such as Dyan, then lesser shaman and finally warriors and commoners.

Quote :
“Nature has her proper interest; and he will know what it is, who believes and feels, that every Thing has a Life of its own, and that we are all one Life.”

Pagan Dialect

The Pagans in Thief speak in a broken, English pidgin. Words are often ended in 's' or 'ie'. The vocabulary is based off of nature; thier songs, poems and sayings revolving around trees and leaves.

Indicatives, in any tense, are replaced with 'bes' ("Are you there?" thus becomes "Bes you there?"), except with 'was', 'will', and occasionally when speaking in third person singular where 'am' is used in place of 'is'.[1] 'He' is often, but not always, replaced with 'him' and 'them' is typically used in place of 'the' when applied to a common noun, much like the German 'der' and 'das'. Because of the latter, 'thems' is substituted for 'them' and 'they'.
Pagans have also developed their own slang. 'Woodsies' is a mild oath, "sapped" is their term for killed, "cityhead" for civilized people, "hammerhead" for the Hammerites, "sneaksie" for thieves, and "manfool" for non-believers. Beasts will sometimes refer to humans as "manflesh".
Thief: The Dark Project and Thief Gold have relatively few Pagan orators, these being limited to Viktoria and Constantine, who often speak fluent English, and the Ape Beasts, which are only present in the last three missions. More are encountered in Thief II: The Metal Age with the sudden influx of Pagan villagers. Of these only Larkspur appears to speak proper English, possibly through his dealings with outsiders and/or his association with Viktoria.[2] But it is in Thief: Deadly Shadows, that the pidgin comes out in full force.
