These are a race of little people from the folklore of the tribes from the Solomon Islands. The Dodore have only one arm, leg and one eye. They also have long red hair like a horses tail. They had long fingernails which they used to kill men with. At one time there was a man who wanted to make a sleeping mat from the bark of the banyan tree. The very tree he hacked down was home to a Dodore spirit who became angry when his house was destroyed. When the man was sleeping on his new mat, the Dodore took its chance and rolled up the mat with the sleeping man inside. The man then awoke realizing that it was not a dream he was having but he was being led away to his doom. The man grabbed onto a passing branch and managed to pull himself out of his rolled sleeping mattress. The dopey Dodore had not realised this and continued to drag the rolled mat without his victim.
