A Brazilian humanoid creature with goat legs horns and a beard. It is dwarfed sized with one eye, large ears and a bald head. He rides a pig and has double jointed legs making him very dexterous. He is a benign creature and is forgiving to hunters as long as they do not leave wounded prey to die. If any hunter did injure prey and left them to bleed to death then the Curupira would take revenge on the ruthless hunter. The Curupira would seduce the traveler into the deep woods causing them to lose their way. Anyone who follows the Curupira into this trap would never find their way back home and will be doomed to wander the forests forever.

Interestingly enough if one paid him with tobacco, Curupira would help by herding one's animals.
