Kijimuna are small child-size creatures. They appear as youthful humans with red hair. They make their homes near rivers and coastlines in banyan trees, and eat a diet consisting mostly of fish.

Kijimuna will sometimes assist  fishermen, or aid humans in other ways in return for  a cooked meal. When they form friendships with humans, it will last for a lifetime. Attacks on humans are very rare. Cutting down the banyan tree in which a one lives is a sure way to earn its wrath. Kijimuna thus wronged have been known to murder livestock, sabotage boats so they sink while their owners are far out at sea. The enmity of a kijimuna, once earned, can never be satisfied for as long as it lives.

Note: art is not for final book, just an internet image used as a reference.

  1. This seems perfect to fill a niche in my own spirit lineup that still needs proud and impulsive little men. And I really like the picture. I am going to keep the mask as well.
