AUNYAINA

South American Demon

Demon with boar tusks who fed on children.

One day it chased a tasty group of kids in the forest. They climbed into a tree, but the demon followed, hauling itself up on a liana vine.

Luckily a friendly parrot gnawed through it and the demon crashed to the ground. Lizards burst forth from its broken corpse and scurried off to colonize the land.

Sadly, the children turned into little monkeys. Or maybe they enjoyed it.
