Origins

The Nguruvilu is a creature with origins in South American mythology, legend and folklore, especially that of Chile.

Appearance

The Nguruvilu is a creature that looks like a fox with a long, snake-like body. Some also say that its tail has fingernails and it uses the tail as an extra limb.

Behavior

They use their powers to make their river homes shallow, so that people are encouraged to try to cross on foot. They then make the water deeper, and create whirlpools, to suck down their prey. Some say that the only safe way to cross a river that a Nguruvilu inhabits, is by boat.

Abilities

Aside from having the powers of a standard fox, they can also live underwater, and can control water, however, then latter power is limited to creating whirlpools.
