The Ndile is a creature with origins in the mythology, legend and folklore of Africa.
Ndile is a magically-animated bundle of rags or animal skins. A magician covers the rags in a special substance called Tingoi. After it is buried near a person's house, the cloth transforms itself into the shape of a bat or snake, and enters the person's house.
Ndile are very aggressive, and attack any person on sight while they are sleeping to suck their blood.
An Ndile is very aggressive, and is able to emit a shock through its skin which can be very fatal if one does not handle it carefully.
The only way to defeat the Ndile is to find the buried cloth and burn it. That should stop it from appearing.
