Seriously fishy characters 2: Munuane

In South America, you had best make sure you’ve got the proper fishing license before you step out of bounds, or you might find yourself eye-to-eye with the Munuane. Er, make that face-to-face.

The Munuane is the very first toothless demon I’ve come across–well, the first one that doesn’t have a beak or something worse, that is. This grey-haired fellow is the demon guardian of fish, fishermen, and people who live by the water. It defends the local people of wherever it lives using its magical bow and arrow (yes, singular, arrow) that never misses its target.

Also, its eyes are in its knees. That’s its weak spot, too. So if you run afoul of the Munuane, go for the knees. But if you do piss the Munuane off, it’s probably because you’re killing more fish than you need to eat, so I hope it gets you first.

The Munuane is pretty dull, I hate to say, and is easily tricked by things like reflections in water (Maybe that’s a knee/eye thing). But it’s persistent and doesn’t forget. So just because you outrun it doesn’t mean you can rest.

The Munuane also eats human meat if it has caught an offending person overfishing. It particularly enjoys soup.
