A fish-like creature that dwells in the Caribbean. A story is told of how a great hero Kalinago who settled on a small island was killed by his jealous sons. The spirit of Kalinago went into the body of an Atraoimen. The sons fled to many different islands, killing the people there and marrying their women. Heads of slain warriors were put on poles around these islands to show others the strength of the sons of Kalinago. However Kalinago in the form of Atraoimen caught up with them and killed them one by one.
