The Brazilian name for the Pombero which is an Elf of Argentina. He comes out at night when people speak of him but usually he creates a nuisance by scaring horses and leaving farm gates open for herded animals to escape. He visits women and impregnates them with his hand. If you offer him a cigarette he will help you find items that you have lost. He can be tamed to live in your house to perform house tasks for a gift much like a Brownie but many people find him too difficult to put up with. He also watches over birds to protect them from children trying to shoot them.
