BORARO

Tucano Demon

Scary Forest Demons

Tall, hairy and alarmingly male, these forest spirits have most of the attributes that seem to be known worldwide for dense woodland demons — forward-pointing ears, backward-pointing feet and a penchant for eating people.

Handy tip: If you find yourself menaced in the forest, remember this. Boraro have no knee joints. So if you can knock them over it takes them some time to regain their awkward feet. Meanwhile you can make your escape.
