These are legendary Oceanic creatures a couple of feet high with long sharp fingernails. They have been described as hobbit-like, but we are fairly sure Bilbo Baggins never attempted to rip that nice old wizard Gandalf to pieces and eat him.
The KAKAMORA tend to hide in caves and prey on stray children and travelers. They can be kept at bay by waving something pale. Far from being a token of surrender, white absolutely terrifies them.
