Goblin or wayward priest? (6)


I believe the answer is:


'goblin' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'wayward priest?' is the wordplay.
'wayward' indicates anagramming the letters.
'priest' anagrammed gives 'SPRITE'.

'or' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for sprite that I've seen before include "Naiad" , "Dainty type" , "Elf, fairy" , "Impish type" , "Nimble elf-like creature - icon in computer game" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
