An evil and devious creature from the myths of the Choctaw Native Americans. They were said to have a human body with sharp spines protruding from their back, their body covered with hair and their heads with small eyes and pointed ears. They lived in the swamps with their special offspring who had the ability to shed their skin and become a glowing spirit. The Nalusa Falay adults would hide in the swamps and call to travellers who became attracted to the glowing spirits. When their victim came close, the Nalusa Falaya would jump out and scare their victim unconscious. Then they would jump on the unconscious traveller impaling them with their magical spines. When the traveller came to he would be brainwashed with evil. Having returned back to their friends they would suddenly and randomly attack them.
