YARA-MA-YHA-WHO

Australian Demon

Very nasty little toothless vampire

He looks like a small red man with an enormous head and octopus-like suckers for fingers. He also has no teeth. A toothless vampire might sound harmless, but beware! His gums are deadly.

If you ever sit beneath an Australian fig tree, be very careful. YARA-MA-YHA-WHO is likely to jump on top of you and suck all your blood out. And then eat you.

Strangely enough, as soon as his food has gone down, he vomits it back up again. His victims are thus miraculously reborn, albeit slightly shorter.

Should he happen to catch the same person repeatedly, the unfortunate regurgitatee will get smaller and redder each time, eventually becoming a YARA-MA-YHA-WHO themselves.
