The Adze is a creature with origins in the mythology, legend and folklore of from Africa. In particular, accounts of their existence arise among the Ewe tribes from Togo and Ghana.
The term Adze may refer to a supernatural spirit, or someone working magic through communion with an Adze. Thus, an Adze may appear human (ie a typical African tribesman or tribeswoman) or it may look like a common fly, a mosquito or (in most cases) a firefly.
There is little to no defense against an Adze.
