Santa is not descended from our turkish saint. But he is a shadow of San D'Klass, the third king from the frond elfin dynasty. He is also know as San the Deluded. He thought that the greed of the Mud People (humans) in his kingdom could be stopped by giving lavish gifts. He would marshal all the great wizards once a year and have them throw up a great-time stop over vast regions. And flocks of sprites would be sent out to deliver presents while us humans were asleep. It didn't work. Human greed can never be assuaged, especilly not by gifts.
