South American Mythology


Mapuche Evil Spirits


Horrible Spirits

They can manifest as any disgusting shape they want, in order to cause any form of misery to humans.

Sickness, harvest blights, plagues and freak weather. There is no defense against them. You either suffer in silence or scream a lot. According to some accounts GUECUBU might be their boss.

They are dispersed by PILLAN – you might need to deal with him if you need HUECUVUS pest control.
