awfully familiar

Rolled a bunch of loose change and bought the new Player's Handbook. 5e is neat and I'm looking forward to playing (haven't done anything other than GMing in over 2 years), but I wasn't entirely satisfied with the warlock familiars. Here's new ones for my hypothetical 5e campaign, a little more whimsical than my normal LotFP stuff.

Scrawls
Pieces of rogue knowledge that accrete in the Far Realms; manifest in the Material Plane as animate writing and images. Scrawls are valued by warlocks because they can be disguised as mundane tattoos and possess all sorts of information.

Night Fairy

The black-winged pygmy knights of the Gloaming Court. Though natural trackers, spies, and saboteurs, they will once in a great while descend on the field of battle in great flensing swarms. The Queen of Air and Darkness often awards the service of night fairies to capable warlocks, as the fairies themselves, though capable, are rarely bright enough to operate independently.
