The Gods, Spirits and Legendary Creatures of Fiji

ULUPOKA

Fijian Demon

An evil rolling head.

In the very beginning, the Gods were involved in power struggles and wars. Ulupoka got his head cut off in a battle and it fell to Earth. But it could not die as it was a Godhead — but not a good one. He had got the chop for a very good reason. He was evil.

Since then the head has rolled around doing nasty things like biting the feet of sleeping men. This means they will never rise again.
